In my family, music plays a big role in our lives. From the musicians in the family such as my husband’s cousins Charlie and Will Sexton as well as my brother in law Ryan Daisley who have made names for themselves in the music industry, to musicals and other productions that my parents and even daughter have taken part in, we find that music is not just something we enjoy in our family but a part of our lives. With that said, when it comes to the holidays and seeking out the gifts that are sure to please the ones who have music flowing through their veins, I find that heading to Best Buy for the latest and greatest when it comes to those music related gifts is the way to go. So when we were introduced to the new Sonos, which is the smart speaker for music lovers, I was not only excited to check it out for myself but also add it to this years holiday guide as a great gift to give to the music lovers in your life!
See with the Sonos, we not only get a speaker, but a speaker that is a smart speaker that allows us to control what we want to listen to with the sound of our voice! This is because along with the music clarity that we get from this amazing speaker, we find that it has Amazon Alexa built in, which gives us the option to tell it not just what music we want to listen to, but allows us to check the latest in the news, check the weather and even take advantage of all that Alexa has to offer. And we can do this by combining our voice with the Sonos app where we can then manage all our music in one place. This includes Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, internet radio and hundreds of other streaming services. Giving us a hands free control when it comes to music and news that can be accessed when cooking in the kitchen, when in the shower, or by anyone in the home by simply telling it what to play, skip, turn the volume up or down, and more!
Then when it comes to the setup and use, well that is simple as well, because we can set up the wireless Sonos speaker to our home WiFi network, take it room to room as needed, and even connect wirelessly with other Sonos speakers in the home! Which gives the us a clear, rich, room filling sound that all comes from this amazing little smart speaker. Along with the features, clarity and portability in the home, I like that with the Sonos having Alexa, that when there are updates with the Alexa system, our Sonos will automatically update. Making Sonos, the smart speaker, a gift that is sure to be a must have for any music lover as well as any home, this coming holiday season!
