Josh.ai Introduces VoiceCast on Sonos
We may still be waiting on any kind of voice integration between Sonos and Google Assistant—something that was promised many moons ago—but there’s now another way for the connected home consumer to engage with their Sonos speakers. Voice automation platform Josh.ai announced that it is bringing its new VoiceCast feature to select Sonos devices.
VoiceCast, according to Josh.ai, will expand the engagement capabilities of the voice platform beyond just the built-in speakers that come with the Josh Micro device. The new, more-immersive platform will enable the system to execute responses through surround-sound speakers, hidden in-0wall speakers, and one-off independent speakers. For the Sonos integration, Josh will initially be compatible with the Sonos Amp, the Play:5 Gen2, and the Sonos One. VoiceCast will route Josh’s responses through those devices, which can then be connected to any speaker in the house.
