Sonos to bring Google Assistant to its smart speakers next week
The neverending saga regarding Sonos connected speakers and Google Assistant is about to end next week if the American company keeps its most recent promise. After a few years of uncertainty, the situation is about to get out of limbo with Sonos finally delivering Google Assistant support to its high-end speakers.

As the company announced back in January, the Sonos One and Sonos Beam will receive an update that will make Google Assistant available to users. The information has been confirmed by Sonos in a shareholder letter released ahead of the company's quarterly earnings call.

The update that will add Google Assistant support will be available next week in the United States, but Sonos plans to bring it to other markets as well in the “next few months.” Although Sonos' previous statement confirmed Google Assistant will be added to older speakers as well, the shareholder letter doesn't include any mentions to these devices.

We'll update the story once Google Assistant support hits the Sonos One and Sonos Beam, but if what the US company says it's true, you should be able to start using Google's personal digital assistant no later than next week.
