It was in October 2017 – about 19 months ago – that Sonos first teased the idea that Google Assistant was coming to their advanced smart speakers. Finally, it seems that the feature comes to at least some Sonos products as soon as next week.

The information on the rollout is hidden in the company’s second quarter report (via Android Police ). In that report, Sonos mentions that a software update comes to US-based Sonos One and Sonos Beam speakers that will bring integration of Google Assistant. Assistant support will meet other countries “in the next few months”, which – judging from previous records – may mean anything.

Here is the full text of the report:

In this quarter, we want to highlight the highly anticipated launch of Google Assistant at Sonos. We have been working on this for quite some time and are proud to roll it out next week. Through a software upgrade, Sonos One and Beam will support the Google Assistant in the US, with more markets coming over in the coming months. This feature will really enhance the customer experience and mark the first time consumers will be able to buy a single smart speaker and get to choose which voice assistant they want to use. We believe that giving consumers choice is always the right decision, and we anticipate that this philosophy will be adopted in the industry over time.

Although it may sound incredible, it looks like Sonos says the truth when it is said that these speakers will be the first in the market that allows users to choose which assistant to use within a system. It will surely be an appeal by Sonos One and Beam.

Currently, Sonos One costs $ 199 while Sonos Beam costs $ 399.
