Sonos now supports Apple AirPlay with system update, Android app goes live

It’s no secret that we absolutely love Sonos’ music systems, and it’s also no secret that we have a boatload of Apple and Android devices laying around. Just now, Sonos has announced that not only is the company’s Android controller app finally available, but a new system update for its devices will be bringing Apple AirPlay support. Additionally, fans of Sonos will be happy to hear that even though you might be streaming audio from your iOS device to your Sonos system, Sonos still supports party mode — bumping tunes throughout every Sonos zone. The Sonos Android controller is available now from Android Market and the Sonos 3.4 system update is available as well. Press release after the break! More →

Sonos Controller for Android coming soon [video]

It’s finally coming, folks. Sonos told us that an Android client was by far the most requested item (and even noted how passionate Android users were about it). Sonos said that the client has been baking for a long time, and one of the reasons for the long lead time was to make sure they could support as many Android devices as possible — since there are varying screen sizes, form factors, etc. There are some nifty features with the Android version of the Sonos Controller, too, like music controls directly mapped to your the Android menu keys on your device, and even the ability to control the volume of the Sonos system via the volume rocker on your handset, and even use voice search to find that specific song you’re looking for. Sonos is bringing the Android client to demo at MWC next month, and the public release is set for the end of March. Video demo after the break! More →
