Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR ASSOCIATING PLAYBACK DEVICES WITH VOICE ASSISTANT SERVICES
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS D'ASSOCIATION DE DISPOSITIFS DE LECTURE À DES SERVICES D'ASSISTANT VOCAL
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and methods for media playback via a media playback system include detecting a first wake word via a first network microphone device of a first playback device, detecting a second wake word via a second network microphone device of a second playback device, and forming a bonded zone that includes the first playback device and the second playback device. In response to detecting the first wake word, a first voice first voice utterance following the first wake word is transmitted a first voice assistant service. In response to detecting the second wake word, a second voice utterance following the second wake word is transmitted to a second voice assistant service. Requested media content received from the first and/or second voice assistant service is played back via the first playback device and the second playback device in synchrony with one another.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés de lecture multimédia par l'intermédiaire d'un système de lecture multimédia comprenant la détection d'un premier mot de réveil par l'intermédiaire d'un premier dispositif de microphone de réseau d'un premier dispositif de lecture, la détection d'un second mot de réveil par l'intermédiaire d'un second dispositif de microphone de réseau d'un second dispositif de lecture et la formation d'une zone liée comprenant le premier dispositif de lecture et le second dispositif de lecture. En réponse à la détection du premier mot de réveil, un premier énoncé vocal suivant le premier mot de réveil est transmis à un premier service d'assistant vocal. En réponse à la détection du second mot de réveil, un second énoncé vocal suivant le second mot de réveil est transmis à un second service d'assistant vocal. Le contenu multimédia demandé reçu en provenance du premier et/ou du second service d'assistant vocal est lu par l'intermédiaire du premier dispositif de lecture et du second dispositif de lecture en synchronie l'un avec l'autre.
