Amazon launched Echo products ranges first in US in 2014

How Worthier Is Amazon Echo Show Than Older Models

Also, current Sonos speaker owners will get Amazon Alexa through a software update, bringing support for this voice assistant to millions of existing owners across the U.S., the United Kingdom, and Germany.

Sonos' new speaker, however, will allow users to control it by barking commands at its baked-in Alexa AI assistant, with Google Assistant support to also arrive on the speaker next year.

Sonos One, available in black and white, replaces the Sonos Play:1 as the company's entry-level speaker. The company is also adding full support for Apple's Airplay 2 protocol eventually, in 2018.

The Sonos One is equipped with two digital amplifiers, one tweeter, and one mid-woofer.

And to round things off, wireless speaker maker Sonos also announced a new model today, the Sonos One, which will launch with Amazon's Alexa assistant built in, and support for Google Assistant next year. "Amazon Echo is a revolutionary device that is designed entirely around your voice". My pre-Sonos One solution was to plug an Echo Dot into a Sonos Play:5, but that takes up a lot of counter space, has dangling cords and can make it harder for Alexa to hear my voice. Pre-orders are starting today and it will be available globally from October 24.

Despite the launch, all the three speakers won't be available to purchase in stores or on website.

Exact voice functionality will include being able to skip a track, adjust the volume, pause mid-way through a song or identify what song and artist is now playing.

Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice controlled device that is powered by Alexa and uses the same far-field voice recognition as Echo. Sonos owners will be able to access all of the innovative natural language voice controls of Alexa and only available on Amazon Music. "Amazon and Sonos team worked together day and night to make it feel like magic", Mieko Kusano, senior director of product management said at the event in NY.

When Amazon Echo launched we thought it was a great "platform" for music, thanks to the way it integrated Amazon Music Unlimited and Spotify, but unfortunately one that sounded quite cack. As with Play 1, you can pair two Sonos 1s in stereo or use them as front and/or rear speakers in a setup with a Sonos Playbase or Playbar. "It will also have local knowledge and local skills from Indian developers", states the company. Along with Alexa control, the company is opening up its own APIs and Works With Sonos certification. After opening a flagship store in NY last year, the company is now getting ready to open a London store later this year, and a Berlin location next year.
