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 goes wrong
Sonos does a pretty good job with privacy and security as a whole. Still, with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant built in, know that those voice requests are being sent to Amazon and Google even if Sonos doesn't hang on to any of your voice recordings. Sonos did have a small privacy goof early in 2020 when they sent an email to 450 customers and revealed all of their email addresses to each other. To be fair, we've all probably made a mistake like that so we'll cut them a little slack.
