Sonos + Snips + IKEA = responsible smart speakers for the masses?

With the news of Sonos buying Snips and the positive track record of their partner IKEA in smart home products, everything seems to be in place for seeing the first responsible speakers for the masses in 2020/2021. We at ThingsCon hope to welcome them back to one of our events when that happens, but will be following them closely in them mean time. Currently we are interested in how Sonos’ decision to Shut Snip’s Local Voice Options down will play out and the news that the Sonos’s “recycle mode” intentionally bricks good devices so they can’t be reused
