In early 2022, Sonos introduced its first voice-controlled listening experience. Named Sonos Voice Control, the device allows users to complete command of their Sonos system using their voice alone.
Sonos Voice Control works on every voice-capable Sonos speaker, processing requests entirely on the device. Available on new voice capable products and as a free update for existing customers, at the time it was launched, Sonos Voice Control was compatible with Sonos Radio, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, and Pandora. More services and markets will follow.
For those who are unfamiliar with Sonos Radio, the platform represents the broadest and best selection of radio available around the world today. Exclusive content, curated genre-based stations, and more than 60,000 local radio stations now available to Sonos owners for free.
Fast, accurate control of your music and your Sonos System
Sonos Voice Control finds the music you want to listen to, processing requests entirely on the device. Local processing delivers faster response times, and effortless follow-ups. All you need is one “Hey Sonos” and you can follow up without the need for additional wake-words. Just like the Sonos app, you can control music and speakers in any room, easily move music around the home, save and like your favorite songs to your personal music library and more.
Natural conversation voiced by Giancarlo Esposito
Sonos Voice Control understands the nuance of human communication and will respond to natural commands like “turn it up!”. After a careful search, Sonos chose award-winning actor Giancarlo Esposito – best known for his roles in Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul and The Mandalorian – to deliver a familiar voice for US customers. With careful recording, advanced processing and mastering, the voice is natural, unobtrusive, yet confident and engaging.
Sonos’ first voice will be joined by others over time as Sonos continues to expand the experience to new people and places.
