Alexa integration is not great; routines are not supported and you can’t change the wake word to name a few things. I have since disabled Alexa on it.
AirPlay 2 arrived a week after I had the speaker, this is awesome if you own Apple products. I can stream anything from my iMac/iPhone/MacBook and the Sonos makes it sound amazing.
It's very handy to play music/podcasts through this, as well as voice control items throughout the home. "Alexa, turn on bathroom heater" is very handy on those cold morning.
I have had instances where the Alexa integration has seemingly stopped working "Alexa, play Pink Floyd in Bedroom", "I'm sorry, that device isn't available" even though it's replying through the device. That is frustration; however easily fixed within 2 minutes by disabling the Sonos skill and speaker and re-enabling.
The first thing I noticed was that I was pleasantly surprised that there was now an Alexa app which I could now download on my iPhone to set up the Sonos one as had thought might just be available on android only. (You do, however, need an Amazon account to use.) The Sonos one sounds better than my older gen one Sonos play ones with richer bass and treble, so thought the sound was pretty good. Thought also Alexa also does voice recognition pretty good and better than Siri on my iPhone - Alexa understood me straight away and I also did not have to set up individually for other voices for others to use which was a plus.
Alexa at the moment does have some limitations on Sonos as other reviews have mentioned. However, if you have Spotify as your main music streaming service then Alexa has no problem connecting to this service, though there are other limitations associated with the early developmental stage of this technology . If I give Alexa a simple request and ask her to play some Beatles, Alexa finds a decent selection of Beatles and is able to do the job pretty well. If, however, I ask Alexa for something slightly more complicated like playing my Daily play list on Spotify she does not understand and I would be better off going straight to my app on my iphone. Likewise if I ask for my favourite podcast off ABC Radio National she instead takes me to something completely different in the US.
There are ways of tweaking Alexa's behaviour in the set up menu in the downloadable app. I would recommend for example that you make Spotify your default music provider for example until Amazon music comes on stream in Aus to make it easier for requests. You can also set up a default news service request - so, for example, if I ask Alexa to give me the news - she now cycles through my AFL team's news, ABC news, BBC then CNN if I can be bothered listening to the whole bulletin - though overall I like this feature. It is not possible from what I can tell, however, to tweak her settings to get finer use of Spotify or tune in radio so I can get my Daily mix and requests for Aussie podcasts which do not send me over to North America. But I am not too bothered by this, however, and am hoping that future software improvements may resolve some of these problems. Overall, I like the Sonos one and that Alexa can deal with simple on the fly requests when I come home and want a quick hit of some music or news. It is also a plus that I can use my airplay on my iPhone to stream music. If Sonos are able to make further improvements to Alexa, I would definitely say this is a five star product. At the moment it is still a pretty good product
Sound quality is discernibly not as good as music from our main home theatre setup, which utilises discrete Denon amp, floor standing and centre speakers, but then I would never expect it to be. However, the Sonos sound quality, to my ears, is very much better than any other wireless speaker I have tried (have been through 3 or 4 different brands / models over the years). More than good enough such that I feel completely happy with the purchases, and with listening to music through the Sonos speakers rather than the home theatre setup.
Both prior to and after purchase I read / watched a great many online and YouTube reviews of these and various other (other brands) speakers, and it seemed clear to me that the overall findings are that - at or anywhere near the price point - Sonos continue to be superior wireless speakers.
Their desktop app looks crappy but works most of the time. I hope it could support streaming from YouTube.
Amazon Alexa supports different languages but not on this device. Language is controlled by Sonos' app instead of the Alexa app. To me, Alexa is almost useless in Australia.
