Sonos’ One and Beam speakers already include Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant, which you can speak to through their onboard microphones. Google Assistant will be added at a later date. Support for Siri onboard has not yet been announced.

The Sonos speakers now appear in the Apple Home app. They can now form a group as part of other Apple products. You can address them with Siri either through a phone or via the HomePod.

Other companies, including Bang and Olufsen and DTS, have also announced that they’ll add support for Siri.
