Sonos One with Amazon Alexa integration is now available in Canada, as reported by 9to5Mac. The push comes just after the launch of Apple’s HomePod, which is available in the United States, UK, and Australia, but not Canada.
The Sonos One originally launched globally last year, but at the time, it only had Amazon Alexa support for the US, UK, and Germany. The integration allows for smart home controls, Alexa skills, and audio controls for streaming services (although with Apple Music, voice controls are limited to just playback and volume).
Starting today, Canadian customers can get Alexa in the Sonos One speaker via a free software update. Apple has not mentioned when HomePod will be introduced in Canada but said that it will be available in France and Germany this spring.
