won't be too surprised to see Sonos pulling all Google access to their speakers very soon unless a reasonably large payout gets agreed....looking like Amazon/Youtube thing happening all over again. (Obviously thinking the same could happen with Amazon if they’re going after them next)Naughty Amazon and Google...
That looks cool! Just realised scrolling through the posts on the Sonos page on a certain website that the pictures looked familiarOn a separate note, picked up a discounted Flexson ceiling bracket for the super cheap One I got after they bricked my CR100 controller.
It’s been getting very little use since purchase but now I can put it in the en suite and get to use it daily whilst showering and other bathroom activities.
not bad for £53, down from RRP of £100, just because the original box was damaged.

I guess the danger is Google offer to buy out Sonos to make it all go away and in the process gain Sonos' patents — chump change for Alphabet/Google for all of Sonos' patents. That would also give Google an edge over Amazon ie. if Google own Sonos and in turn all their patents then that puts Google in a strong position to go after Amazon for patent infringement. Maybe this is actually Sonos' game plan / plan b.So what do we reckon to all this Sonos/Google stuff then?
Have to be honest and don't feel too over the moon with all this having only just taken the plunge on the Beam and One's....
Isn’t that the reason most people buy the Beam or One’s though?Be interesting to see how it turns out...be surprised if it has any short term effect on Sonos — unless you currently use Google assistant/music or Alexa/Amazon music with your Sonos speakers. But be good to see the little guy win for one!
