Google is considering changing the way it reviews the devices that the company sells.
The move would require that the software companies involved with the reviews be held responsible for the outcome.
Sonos said in a blog post on Monday that the review process would now be a “collaborative” one between Sonos and the people responsible for reviewing the device.
“We will use the same team of reviewers that have reviewed our devices for the last six months to work together to make the review of your Sonos device a seamless experience,” it said.
“Sonos is committed to helping consumers have an easy, safe, and enjoyable experience when using Sonos, so we will work together as a team to make this happen.”
Sonos CEO Phil Schiller said the move was about giving consumers a better choice of product, and would not affect the price of Sonos products.
“Our reviews will be independent of the quality of Sonotone, and we will not require you to pay any additional fees for our review,” he wrote.
Sonus did not give details on the changes that the reviews would need to make, but noted that the reviewers would still be responsible for ensuring the product was compatible with Sonos’ streaming service.
“When we launch a new product, we will update our product recommendations and the reviews will reflect this change in the coming weeks,” it wrote.
“You can find our review process and more information about how you can make a complaint at www.sonos.com/about/consumer.”
“We are also going to work to make our review of the Sonos Hue light controller a collaborative one that we all can work together on.”
Sonus’ latest move comes after the company announced that it would no longer make its Chromecast-based speakers compatible with Chromecast.
Sono is owned by Chinese company Xiaomi, which bought the streaming company for $3.6 billion in 2015.
