Alexa is officially the first voice assistant to be available on Sonos, a move that turns the wireless speaker product into a voice-controlled sound system.

Originally announced a year ago, Sonos has been working "day and night" with Amazon to implement the features.

Alexa on Sonos will be available as a beta software update today. You will be able to control your speakers using Amazon Alexa-compatible devices including the Echo and the Dot.

The update will be available in the US, UK, and Germany.

Music is one of the most used features with Alexa," said an Amazon spokesperson at an event in New York today. The new Sonos integration allows you to ask Alexa to "play the new Killer's song" and Alexa will find it.
