I just read a similar article on Android Central. It seems like old news to me but it's getting new coverage because Google said something about it at CES.
Looks like there is no google cast integration.

I wouldn't take a beta/demo feature demonstration as the last word.

From the article:

There is also the “works with Sonos” side, which lets Sonos speakers serve as music endpoints that can be controlled by other Google speakers. In other words, if you have a Google Home and an older Sonos speaker (or a Sonos speaker set to Alexa), you can use your Google Home to start music on the Sonos.



So, ask Google Home Hub to cast something to a Sonos speaker. Perfect.

Thats true, i'm quite sure that they would have told the verge otherwise, if they had plans to integrate google cast in the near future (what ever thats means for this company).
On the contrary....if they're still trying to make sure the feature works, and weren't sure one way or the other, they wouldn't speak a word of it.

This is bad news since I got a Sonos One to go together with my Chromecast speakers and Google Home Mini's...

I hope it can be added in an update...
I've got my sonos working with my home hub with a chromecast
Only if your Sonos has line in

Has anyone tried Google Home integration through the beta program yet? I imagine you sign an NDA but I'm holding up hope that someone is willing to share info.
If there was such a thing, then yes, I’d be willing to bet there would be an NDA, and that the great majority of people would be loathe to break it, as there might be not only harsh penalties (?) but serious impact for any potential inclusion in future beta tests. Not to mention it’s unlikely that a Sonos operated forum would allow a comment about what might be going on to stand. I’d think at the very least, you might be better off asking that question pretty much anywhere else but here.
