Sonos meets Alexa
The Sonos One is moisture-resistant, so you can use it on your deck, porch, or patio.
What's easier to use than a Sonos multi-room audio system? One you can control with your voice. The Sonos One wireless speaker with Amazon Alexa built-in makes it possible. Just tell Alexa what you want to do, such as play tracks from select streaming services, or get a weather update.
Alexa also makes the Sonos One the voice control hub for your Sonos multi-room system. Tell Alexa to turn up the volume of the PLAY:1 in your kitchen, or play your party mix through every Sonos speaker in your home. And that's just the start.
Voice commands get the music flowing
The Sonos One has a 6-mic array with noise cancellation to ensure Alexa clearly hears your commands — even if the music's loud. And an LED indicator lets you know when the mic's off for privacy. A responsive chime lets you know Alexa's listening and has heard your commands.
Selecting what to play is now easier than ever. Tell Alexa to mix and match from Pandora®, Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, and more. And of course, you can control even more music features through the Sonos app on your smartphone or tablet.
The Sonos One lets you access many of the services Alexa has to offer. Start by downloading the free Amazon Alexa app to your smartphone to set up your “skills.” These are the services you can direct Alexa to access. It includes information sites, popular smart home brands such as Nest and Wemo®, sports sites, and more.
Once complete, your Sonos One and Alexa are ready to serve you. Just tell it what you want, such as "Alexa, ask NETGEAR to enable guest network."
Voice, touch, and app commands together
Control your Sonos One anyway you like. Tell Alexa to play a track. Pause it with your smartphone. Start it playing again with the speaker's top-mounted control buttons. You have total control of the Sonos One, even when you're not in the room.
Expand to any (or every) room
Your Sonos One can be part of a larger multi-room audio system. Place Sonos players like the Sonos One, PLAY:1, or the larger PLAY:3 or PLAY:5, in every room where you want to listen to music. You can set up the players to work on your existing Wi-Fi® network. Or, you can connect any Sonos speaker to your network router, and Sonos will create its own dedicated wireless network for even better performance. You can also use a BOOST to create this network if you can't place a speaker near your router.
Trueplay speaker tuning for optimal sound
If you use your Sonos control app on an iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®, you can use it to fine-tune the Sonos One with Sonos's Trueplay feature. It uses the mic built into your device to measure how the sound reflects off your walls and furnishings, and then it adjusts the speaker's settings for the best possible sound.
Which music services work with Alexa?
Here's the list of music services you can control with Alexa (updated December 2017):

Expand your Sonos system
You can have up to 32 Sonos music players in your system, and each one can play an independent selection of individual tracks or playlists. Listen to jazz in the den while your spouse plays rock music in the kitchen, or pump a single playlist of songs throughout the entire house during a party.
