Sonos have dominated the wireless hi fi space for many years with a range of products that hit the sweet spot for millions of music lovers. Recently however, some have felt that their software was falling behind in a market now crowded with suppliers.
That has all changed.
Sonos have released an all-new Controller app that puts real power and control back into the hands of the listener.
We now have more music choices than ever before, with more devices in more rooms of our houses. The new Controller app does a brilliant job of making music easy again.
You can now search for an artist, album or song across all your music services at once. No more hunting down that new artist across multiple services because they’re not licensed everywhere.
You can create playlists using music from your library and any of your music services – you’re no longer restricted to a single music service at a time.
The sleek new design makes everything more intuitive, faster and easier. It’s now much simpler to find music and play it across one or multiple locations, or select different music across different rooms.
