Sonos and Roku are in talks to integrate Roku Connect and Roku Entertainment Assistant software into Sonos’ audio devices, according to a report from CNET citing an anonymous source.
The integration would allow voice commands to be sent to a Roku device, such as a Roku TV, via a Sonos speaker.
“The discussions are in the early stages,” the source told CNET.
Sonos spokeswoman Laura Morarity told CNET the company “won’t speculate on any potential future partnerships,” adding “that said, Sonos is committed to bringing the voice services our customers want to our platform. So naturally, we’re open to having discussions with any number of companies crafting innovative voice experiences.”
