Voice Control: Sonos’ own voice experience for listening on Sonos

Sonos presents its first proprietary voice control with Voice Control that must be completely created for listening on Sonos. The manufacturer also states that privacy must be paramount in the system that gives you control over your Sonos system with your voice.

Voice Control works on any Sonos speaker with speech recognition and must process commands entirely on the device itself. No audio recordings or transcripts are sent to the cloud and they are not stored, listened to or read. The voice experience is available on new products with speech recognition and as a free update for existing customers and compatible with Sonos Radio, Apple Music, Deezer and Pandora. In time, more services and markets should follow.

Because your orders are processed entirely on the device, according to Sonos, faster response times and easier follow-up should be possible. This way you only have to say ‘Hey Sonos’ once and then no more activation words are needed. Just like with the Sonos app, you can control music and speakers in any room, move music from one room to another, save and like your favorite songs in your own music library, and more.

The voice of Giancarlo Esposito (known for his roles in Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul and The Mandalorian) is meeting customers in the US, but will be added later with other voices as the software expands to new people and places. Voice Control will be available to users in the US from June 1, followed by France and other markets later this year.
