Sonos One users can now ask Alexa to play Spotify music

In October, Sonos launched the Sonos One, which sets the bar very high on what is already the benchmark in wireless audio for the whole house. The big new feature? An integrated microphone that has added support for Alexa from Amazon.

However, there was a big caveat: while Alexa was integrated to control music services like Apple Music, Google Play Music, Soundcloud and others, it lacked a major player under the form of Spotify.

That's not to say that Sonos users could not listen to Spotify at all – once you started listening to Spotify music from your iPhone or computer, you could skip the tracks and change the volume with Alexa.

But part of the beauty of Alexa's integration is the ability to simply request the music of your choice from scratch.

Today, Sonos has rectified the situation, confirms the Verge. Now, Sonos One users can ask Alexa to play their custom playlists, Discover Weekly, or any other music mix that Spotify could offer.
