The integration allows for smart home controls, Alexa skills, and audio controls for streaming services (although with Apple Music, voice controls are limited to just playback and volume).
Starting today, Canadian customers can get Alexa in the Sonos One speaker via a free software update. Apple has not mentioned when HomePod will be introduced in Canada but said that it will be…
