Sonos Launches Android App, AirPlay-Compatible Software
Wireless multi-room music system maker Sonos has released its first Controller app for Android, available for free as a download. At the same time, the company released the latest iteration of its system software, Version 3.4, which allows users to access Apple AirPlay music sources in multiple rooms at the same time.
The Android app offers a few performance nuances that Sonos’s iPhone software does not provide, including the ability to search for content by voice command and the ability to use the button on the side of the phone to control the entire system’s volume.
“This introduction fits with our strategy of giving our customers the experience of being able to play and control everything that’s out there,” said Jon Reilly, technical product manager.
