Amazon8217;s Alexa announcements feature has been added to Sonos speakers for the first time.
The Sonos One and Sonos Beam smart speakers now have the ability to broadcast messages around the home, bringing the young ones to the dinner table or making sure everyone in a household is kept in the loop.
All they have to do is say 8220;Alexa, announce8221;, 8220;Alexa, broadcast8221; or 8220;Alexa, tell everyone8221; and the following message will be recorded. It will then play on every Alexa-enabled device in the home.
Although other Sonos devices, such as the Play:1 and Playbar, can play music sent to them through an Alexa-enabled device, it doesn8217;t seem that they are compatible with Alexa announcements at this present time.
