Sonos Announces Sonos Beam & AirPlay 2 Support

Today, Sonos introduced Sonos Beam, the most versatile smart speaker for the living room, delivering incredible sound for virtually any streaming content and support for 80+ music services, support for Amazon Alexa at launch, and multiple voice assistants over time.

The $399 USD Sonos Beam will ship globally starting July 17 and is available for pre-order today on www.sonos.com.

With Beam, Sonos has combined three products into one – a Sonos smart speaker featuring Amazon Alexa, a sound bar that packs more than enough punch for most rooms, and the one device you need for all your music and streaming content in the living room. Like all Sonos speakers, Beam is part of the Sonos home sound system, meaning owners can easily integrate Beam into existing multi-room set-ups.

Sonos also announced that AirPlay 2 will be available on Sonos in July via a free software update. With AirPlay 2, you can play music and podcasts from their iOS devices directly on their Sonos speakers, including the new Sonos Beam, Sonos One, Playbase, and the second generation Play:5. With a single supported speaker, AirPlay content can be streamed to other Sonos speakers in the system. Customers also gain a new voice experience with the addition of Siri to start a track from Apple Music and play in any room on Sonos.
