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!
