Not too sure how Google Assistant will be integrated. If it's anything like Alexa, yes - but will either require either A) a voice-enabled speaker such as the Beam or One - or 😎 A Sonos skill that can be enabled on a Google Mini to then control the Play:1

Example: You can use an Echo device to control your Play:1 after you enable the Sonos skill. You would just have to say "Alexa, play the radio on [Room Name for your Play:1]"

Ideally it will follow the same protocol, but we don't know seeing how it's not released yet.
that’s what I was assuming also but will have to wait ´impatiently’ for the new release to see if the protocol will be same as Alexa. Txs
