Sonos Voice Control is a voice experience that delivers fast, accurate and hands-free control of your music and your Sonos system with unmatched privacy, now available in the French language.
PARIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Sonos (Nasdaq: SONO), the leading sound experience company, introduced Sonos Voice Control to its French listeners through an update of the Sonos application which enables Sonos Voice Control in the French language in France. Available since June 1st in US English, Sonos Voice Control delivers effortless control of your music and your Sonos system using only your voice. Designed with privacy at its core, Sonos Voice Control is the simplest way to connect listeners to the content they love. The Sonos Voice Control experience is now available for French Sonos listeners.
“One of the most natural and effortless ways to connect to your music is with your voice, but we knew from listening to our customers that privacy concerns meant many were choosing not to use voice control,” said Joseph Dureau, Vice President, Voice Experience, Sonos. “We created Sonos Voice Control purely for listening on Sonos, putting privacy at its core. Since launching in the US, we have seen customers listening to 30% more music than before. We are energized by this progress and look forward to expanding to new people and places starting today in France.”
