This week Sonos announced the Sonos One (One) with integrated Alexa. The One does not look different from the Play One but has six far-field microphones to pick up your voice and lights to show when it is listening. Amazon Alexa will work out of the box and you will be able to control with your voice all your Sonos speakers in the home. The speaker will ship on October 24 and will cost $199. Sonos promised that other assistants will come in 2018, including Google Assistant. At launch, the One will support about 80 streaming services, and you can use Alexa voice commands to play tunes from Amazon Music, iHeart Radio, Pandora, and a few other music services right now. Support for Spotify will be added soon, with Apple Music coming at a later date.
