Sonos Updates Its Software—Promises Android Tablet Control With Spotify

By Andrew Tarantola on at

Sonos Inc, makers of wireless HiFi stereo systems, announced a system software update today that promises a host of new features as well as deeper integration with one of the Internet's largest streaming music providers. Here's what's new.

The biggest addition is that Sonos' Controller for Android has been optimised for tablets running OS 2.2 or higher. That means you can now adjust your music from a Kindle Fire, HTC Flyer, Motorola Zoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab, or Sony Tablet S. It also includes a new alarm feature, library management tools and Twitter connectivity.

Spotify users will see tighter integration as well by now providing them access to their Spotify Inbox and the ability to play New Releases and Top Tracks. Other tweaks include new AAC+ support and a beta sandbox. [Sonos]
