Sonos One now is gen 2 with an update to the processor,
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and increased memory.

The new Sonos One Gen 2 announcement seems to indicate that the sound quality is the same and the Gen 1 and 2 are interchangeable.

But the glimmer of
hope Aussies have been waiting for is mentioned in passing:

There aren’t any functionality changes between the two,
and Google Assistant will be coming to both of them when we’re ready to go.

It appears that both Gen 1 and Gen 2 will support Google Assistant.
Sonos has an update here
  –
it’s a few months old but still attracting comments. Most have given up waiting
and bought a Google Home Mini!

And the added
processor speed and memory should enable AirPlay 2 support.

GadgetGuy’s take: Sonos One is sweet

It is the best sounding speaker, and while Alexa support is good, in Australia we have embraced
Google Assistant. At last count, 76% of
smart speakers were Google Assistant capable, and
Alexa, Siri, et al. were well behind.

Sonos is important because
it supports so many music sources.

The Gen 2 is identified
on the product label and box.
