Sonos One - Voice Controlled Smart Speaker
Play and control your music hands-free. Just ask.
Sonos One blends great sound with Amazon Alexa, the easy-to-use voice service, for hands-free control of your music and more. Use your voice to play songs while you cook or tell Alexa to turn the volume up. You can even request your favourite lullaby when you’re tucking the kids in.
Why we love Sonos One
Small in size - big on sound
Sonos One connects with Amazon Alexa easily over Wi-Fi. Just set up the speaker, select the Sonos skill in the Amazon Alexa app, and you’re all set to play music, get news and answers, manage your smart devices, and enjoy other Alexa skills using nothing but your Sonos One.
Since Alexa responds to any voice, anyone in your home can take charge of the music. Kids can call out their favourite sing-alongs. Friends can skip or replay tracks and adjust audio settings, no app required. Party guests can request their favourite songs in real-time. No matter who says it, Sonos plays it.
The convenient combination of your voice and the Sonos app allow you to manage everything you listen to in one place. You can start and control music using just your voice when you’re listening to Spotify*, Amazon Music (Prime or Unlimited), TuneIn radio, and iHeartRadio. Or start songs on Apple Music, Deezer or any other streaming service with your app, then use voice requests to skip or replay tracks, pause the music, adjust the volume and more. Since Sonos and Amazon Alexa are continually updating with new features, services and skills, your music and voice options will both keep getting better over time.

Q: Can I use voice to control Spotify?
Currently you cannot ask Alexa to start music from Spotify on Sonos. You can start music with the Sonos or Spotify app. Once the music is playing, you can ask to skip a song or turn the volume up. You can start and control music using voice with the music services that Alexa currently supports, including Amazon Music, Amazon Music Unlimited and TuneIn Radio. We will offer full voice support for Spotify by 21st of December 2017.
Q: Can I create a stereo pair between Sonos One and Play:1?
A: Sonos One will only pair with another Sonos One. You cannot pair a Sonos One with a Play:1 for stereo sound or as rear surrounds in a home cinema configuration. Sonos One can be wirelessly stereo paired with another Sonos One. In addition, you can use a pair of Sonos Ones as the rears for a Sonos home cinema set-up. Sonos One is fully compatible with all the other Sonos speakers to play music in multiple rooms. For example, you can speak to your Sonos One in the kitchen and send music or turn the volume up in another room where you have a Sonos speaker.
Q: Are there stands or wall mounts for Sonos One?
A: We have worked with partners to develop stands and wall mount accessories specific to the Sonos One. These will be available to buy. Sonos One does not have a standard speaker screw mount so always check compatibility of the stand before purchasing.
Q: Do all Alexa commands work through Sonos One?
A: Most Alexa commands and skills are supported by Sonos One. However, several specific features that Alexa provides on Echo devices are not available. These include:
- Flash briefings: These will be available by 22nd November 2017.
- Voice calling, drop-in and messaging
- Setting reminders and getting notifications
- Playing audiobooks: We are working on bringing Audible to Sonos in early 2018.
