Alexa, Play Music in the Kitchen
A year ago, we received our first pair of Sonos speakers as a gift. It didn’t take long for us to realize that this company leads the future of sound systems. Their quality is impecable and their convenience factor is unmatched by any other brand. The ease of not having wire your entire house to enjoy music in every room is one of our favorite features. Sonos uses your wifi network and connects to a proprietary control app that centralizes access to all your Sonos speakers around the network.
Recently, Sonos launched their newest addition to the product line: the Sonos One. This is the first speaker on the market to offer a built-in Amazon Alexa without being a full Amazon device. Just think about how convenient it is to play your music and be able to listen to the news, traffic and your schedule from a single device. No need for extra purchases or cables; all you have to do is connect your Amazon and your Sonos accounts through the app.
The Sonos One offers newly designed touch controls on top and a dedicated LED light to remind you whenever the microphone is active. If you are privacy driven, you may chose to turn off the microphone for those especial conversations. This speaker has the same dimensions as the Play:1, making it easy to fit almost anywhere in your house. Moreover, thanks to the humidity resistant components, you can even choose to blast your music in the bathroom.
Thanks to the Sonos One and the different music services supported, you can play your favorite tunes from Spotify without having to move a finger. Simply ask Alexa to do it for you, it’s almost magical.
