Sonos sues Google over wireless speaker technology

Home speaker maker Sonos sued Google on Tuesday, claiming the search giant of violating five of its patents, including its wireless speaker-to-speaker communication technology design. The company is looking for financial damage and want to prevent the supposedly unauthorized selling of Google headphones, smartphones, and laptops in the US.

In a complaint filed for the central district of California with the U.S. District Court, Sonos said it shared its wireless multiroom speaker technology with Google in 2013 to integrate the platform with Google Play Music. Sonos said with the launch of its multiroom home audio product, Chromecast Audio, Google started infringing the patent in 2015.

“Google’s misappropriation of Sonos’s patented technology has only proliferated, as Google has expanded its wireless multi-room audio system to more than a dozen different infringing products, including, for example, the Google Home Mini, Google Home, Google Home Max, and Pixel phones, tablets, and laptops,”

Sonos also said Google had warned of its infringement, dating back to 2016, at least four separate times.

“Over the years, we have had numerous ongoing conversations with Sonos about both companies’ IP rights, and we are disappointed that Sonos brought these lawsuits instead of continuing negotiations in good faith,” said Google representative.

According to The New York Times, Sonos has also filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission.
