The prevalence of smart speakers is seeing them be integrated into a rising number of households which is also increasing privacy concerns, so new products like the Sonos One SL are being created with this in mind.
The speaker boasts a microphone-free design that is intended to let users seamlessly stream their favorite music or audio content without having to worry about privacy concerns. The unit isn't able to connect users to a voice assistant yet will deliver high-end audio capabilities from any room including the bathroom thanks to a humidity-resistant design.
The Sonos One SL speaker features WiFi connectivity and Ethernet to let users intuitively integrate it into their living space. The microphone-free design addresses consumer segments who are becoming increasingly concerned about their in-home privacy in the face of the Internet of Things (IoT) revolution.
