Starting today through a cloud software update, Amazon Announcements will be available on Alexa-enabled Sonos speakers, Sonos One and Sonos Beam, in the United States, United Kingdom and Canada (English).

Whether it’s announcing that dinner is ready or that it’s time for bed, just say “Alexa announce…” and whatever you say next will be one-way broadcasted to all Alexa-enabled devices in your household.
