A question or two/three to Sonos:
Today, anyone that wants to use the Google Mini with ANY third party speaker has to also buy the CCA puck from Google. But since Sonos users have been given a way to not need the puck if they have Android devices, not allowing them the same benefit while using Google Home/ Mini is more likely a Google decision, not Sonos? Hopefully, that will be revisited soon by one/both and is part of the announced integration of Google Assistant?
My next question: In this "enabling Google Assistant" that Sonos says it will do soon, is this allowing of Google Home/Mini to work with Sonos without a CCA puck all that needs to be done?
And if so or otherwise, since "play to Sonos" works automatically, immediately and very well in any place in the world where GPM service is available, will Google Assistant do so just as soon and as well? Because this last bit seems to be a major challenge for Sonos where the Alexa integration is concerned; Alexa is also released now by Amazon in Canada, India and Japan, but there is no knowing when it will work on Sonos the way it does in US/UK/Germany, the only countries where Alexa was available when Sonos released Alexa integration.
Finally, what else will be included in the first iteration of an enabled Google Assistant by Sonos?
Some clarity will be welcome in deciding investments between different command hardware going forward.
