The Alexa voice control features that Sonos promised last summer are finally here. At a media event in New York this morning, the company said support for Alexa will be available in public beta through a software update starting today. The initial integration will work by pairing Sonos speakers with Alexa-enabled Amazon devices like the Echo and Echo Dot.
