The system also goes a step further than most, enabling users to control their home automation devices via Alexa in the vehicle; this includes turning off (compatible, connected) lights and adjusting thermostats.
The Sonos One gadget makes Alexa sound ideal, offering a lot of useful features and allowing you to have a pleasant experience. Additionally, support for Apple's AirPlay 2 will be coming to all Sonos devices in 2018.
The array of six microphones in the Sonos One speakers were almost as sensitive as in other Amazon Echo devices.

For reference, I'm a first-time Sonos user and had no other smart speakers to connect to my Sonos One. The Amazon Tap makes Alexa portable, and the forthcoming Echo Spot lets Alexa serve as your alarm clock. The Garmin Speak does not look like an ordinary Global Positioning System. For better or worse, Alexa doesn't sell its own higher-end speaker. I would have preferred to do both in the same app, ala an "Alexa for Sonos" app, but understand why the experience has to be done through multiple apps, given that Amazon and Sonos are expecting consumers to connect speakers from each of their respective companies. So how does the Sonos One sound? Garmin's Speak can also be used for hands-free calling thanks to Sensory's TrulyHandsfree Alexa trigger.
