One of Sonos’s Most Anticipated Features Is in Purgatory

Bad news for Sonos fans. That Google Assistant feature the company promised would be ready in 2018, well, Sonos is going to have to break that promise.

Why Every TV Needs a Soundbar 

Soundbars are a relatively new invention. The 5.1 surround sound setup—one left speaker, one centre, one right, and two rear—used to be the most popular way to improve your home cinema’s audio, and it tended to be pretty expensive. Then, in 1998, Altec-Lansing released the world’s first soundbar and changed the way living rooms worked. It’s been two decades since, and thanks to a weird consequence of innovation, pretty much all TVs now require a soundbar. Read More >>

Sonos Just Announced Another Amp, Inventively Called the ‘Sonos Amp’

Considering it doesn't have the same level of power and money as the likes of Google, APple, Samsung, or whomevery else wants to dominated the home audio market these days, Sonos has done pretty well for itself. Apparently seven million people have Sonos products in their homes, which isn't too shabby. Naturally, with IFA kicking off in Berlin the company had some announcements to make - the principle one being that it's launching a brand new amp designed to act as a hub for all your AV equipment.

Sonos Speakers Finally Get the Airplay 2 Support We’ve Been Waiting For

After its somewhat premature announcement of Airplay 2 support, Sonos is finally updating a few of its speakers to actually support Airplay 2.

With Airplay 2 on Sonos speakers, now you can tell Siri to turn the volume down instead of doing it with those clumsy fingers of yours. Read More >>

Audible Support is Back on Sonos Speakers, For Real This Time

A couple of weeks ago Sonos prematurely posted a blog post announcing Audible support was returning to Sonos speakers, before promptly deleting it and denying that any plans were in place. Now, though, it's been confirmed that it's happening, with Audible support now rolling out to both the Sonos and Audible apps. Read More >>

It Looks Like Audible Support is Heading Back to Sonos

Audible is probably the most popular audiobook service out there, and Sonos has made a pretty good name for itself in the smart/multi-room industry. So it's been disappointing to find that the two have been incompatible for a while. Luckily it probably won't be that way for long, because Sonos accidentally announced it early. Read More >>

Sonos One: Can Alexa Supercharge The OG Of Multiroom Audio?

For many years, speakers were boring unless you were a hardcore audiophile. They didn’t do anything clever. Sure, there were speakers that sounded better or worse - but to the lay listener, this was simply a question of price: The more money you spent, the better the sound. Read More >>

Sonos Finally Squished Alexa Into a Speaker, But Maybe Just Buy a Dot

Sonos wouldn’t like it, but you could call its new smart speaker an “Echo.” A high-end, very nice-sounding, but flawed Amazon Echo—the kind someone who just got a promotion might buy themselves, because unlike the £50 Dot or new £100 Echo, this speaker will set you back £200. Read More >>

The Sonos Smart Speaker is Finally Here

At long last, Sonos is ready for small talk. The wireless speaker company—whose gloss has dulled as Amazon, Google, and soon Apple, have released increasingly decent “smart” speakers over the last couple of years—is finally releasing a speaker with built-in voice commands. It’s called the Sonos One and it comes with Amazon’s Alexa assistant built in. In 2018, Sonos says it will support Google’s Assistant, too. Read More >>

New Sonos Gear Is on the Way as Apple’s HomePod Looms

It’s no secret Sonos is working on a smart speaker to rival products like Amazon’s Echo and Apple’s Homepod. Last year, Sonos laid off a number of staff while simultaneously announcing a new shift in focus to help the company “remain innovative and successful.” But jumping on the digital assistant bandwagon hasn’t been easy, as the company’s current integration with Amazon Alexa devices isn’t exactly what you’d call straightforward.
