It would appear that the development and availability of the Sonos One hardware has forced a premature release of laughably V8 buggy software, which clearly isn't fit for purpose.
What happened to the Sonos USP we all bought into of 'it just works' ?
After waiting for a nearly a year for this integration, the results are very disappointing.
It struggles to understand voice commands, failing almost half the time with 'I don't understand' or 'something went wrong'. I reckon 60% success of a kind is typical, well under par.
You can't control and play most music sources that Sonos support, including your own music library.
You can't set up or control any groups of speakers.
Add to that the revised IOS and Android App looks like a 12 year old designed it. No intuitive hierarchy and more presses to achieve the same as the old one. Classic example of 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'.
It looks like Sonos is on for a repeat of the Version 5 debacle (this is V8). The difference being that they now have stiff competition.
