In October of 2017, Sonos introduced the One speaker with Alexa built in, but it promised Assistant would be coming the next year. Most of 2018 came and went and it wasn't until November that users were able to sign up for a private and demanding beta to test the feature. Then at CES this year, Google teased Sonos compatibility again, but we still had no official date. Thanks to Sonos's second quarter financial report, we now have an official confirmation: Assistant will come to Sonos next week. Read More
Anyone familiar with Sonos products will know how rarely discounted they are, so any reduction in price is a welcome sight. Amazon is currently offering the first-generation Sonos One speaker for $149.99, $19 less than Sonos' current price of $169 and $49 less than the old MSRP before the new model debuted. Read More
I think it's fair to say that we've seen some questionably useful Google Assistant integrations this CES, and will no doubt see a great many more in the near future.

It's $20 off right now in Sonos's holiday sale, bringing the price down to $179. A two-pack can be had for $348, which is $30 to $50 off, depending on who you ask. Read More
There was much excitement among audiophiles when the Sonos One was announced — there might finally be a voice-controlled speaker with half-decent audio quality that doesn't cost $400 (like the Google Home Max). It launched with Amazon Alexa (as did the Beam soundbar) and a promise of Google Assistant at some point this year, but that's sadly been pushed back to 2019. Read More
Cracks fingers. Alright, here we go again, another deal, another post. You can do it, Rita.
Look, I know most of you are just about done with Black Friday, but we do what we do because there are always a few persons who are interested in this deal, as opposed to that deal which others found more appealing. We're here for all. But it's tough to make these posts interesting, especially when the discount is relatively so tiny. Then I remember that Sonos nearly never discounts anything and when it does, it's just as abysmal as the deals today, so here goes... Read More
