Sonos Unveils Its First Portable Bluetooth Speaker, Supports AirPlay 2

Sonos today introduced its first portable Bluetooth speaker, the Sonos Move.

The battery-powered Sonos Move features both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for listening at home or on the go, AirPlay 2 support, built-in Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, and up to ten hours of continuous music playback per charge. The speaker features an oval-shaped design with IP56-rated water and dust resistance.

‌AirPlay‌ 2 support means music playback on the Sonos Move can be controlled with Siri, and the speaker will also appear in the ‌AirPlay‌ picker on iOS devices and in the Home app across iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch.

Sonos Move pre-orders begin today on Sonos.com. The speaker will be available starting September 24, priced at $399 in the United States.

Sonos also unveiled a lower-priced version of its Sonos One smart speaker without built-in microphones. Priced at $179, the Sonos One SL costs $20 less than the regular Sonos One. Like the Sonos Move, the One SL supports ‌AirPlay‌ 2.

The new One SL replaces the Sonos Play:1 and will be available globally starting September 12.

I’ve been looking forward to this but at that price it’s a no buy for me

I like the fact that they offer a version with no microphone. Some of us do not want listening devices in our homes but want to have the latest speaker technology. :)

10 hours of playback is standard but water resistance is low for this class

Average to low specs, high price, Apple fans should love it?

I dumped Sonos after they recently stopped supporting streaming from my phone. That was a very disappointing move.
To be clear for others who read this, they stopped supporting streaming of files stored on your phone, from the Sonos app, because there were cases where it didn't work. Streaming those files via AirPlay2 works just fine. And streaming anything else still works. The Sonos support article on this ('https://support.sonos.com/s/article/2922') says:

The ‘On this iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch’ feature has been removed from the Sonos app for iOS. The way this feature was originally architected has become unreliable with newer versions of iOS.

Six pounds. Not sure Sonos quite understand the concept of portable :D
Doesn’t weigh much more than the average laptop. If lifting 6 lbs is an issue you may want to see a doctor.

a non issue since it syncs with Apple Music and just about every other music service on Earth.
