Sony adding Google Assistant support to headphones and speakers via software update
While Sony just announced a bunch of new headphones and speakers, some older Sony products are getting Google Assistant added via a forthcoming firmware update. As these headphones do not have independent Wi-Fi connections, Assistant availability depends on pairing the headphones with a phone.
The newly-announced WF-SP700N and WI-SP600N noise-cancelling sport headphones, as well as the HT-Z9F and HT-X9000F soundbars come with support for Google Assistant out of the box. For the WF-1000X, WI-1000X, and WH-1000XM2, as well as the WH-CH900N and h.ear on 2 WH-H900N wireless noise cancelling series of headphones and earbuds released last year, software updates will be provided to add Assistant support.
