Sonos One

Review Date 10/23/2019

Sonos One takes the sound quality of Sonos speakers and adds in voice control via Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant for a smart speaker that sounds smart too. Play music, set alarms, ask questions, get answers, pretend like you don't live alone, all with this humidity resistant little speaker that won't freak out during a hot shower in your bathroom. It's not the cheapest smart speaker on the market, but audiophiles will likely approve.

What could happen if something went wrong

Sonos does a pretty good job with privacy and security. Still, with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant built in, Amazon or Google could assume you are depressed based on the sad music you are listening to and send you lots of ads for self-help books.

Misconfigured Networks Vulnerable to PewDiePie Prank
We've been investigating a small number of households with improperly configured networks, such that Sonos players and other devices become accessible from the Internet, and someone instigated a prank to play a message in support of YouTube star PewDiePie on those systems.
