The Sonos Hi-Fi wireless music system has been gaining a lot of respect from both the audiophile and music-newbie communities alike— its sheer power and easy syncing abilities make it one of the best sound system products on the market.
Now, they’re adding even more functionality to their Sonos app for Android, as you can now play music and podcasts straight from your library on your device. The previous version required users to download all of their music to their computers and media servers— streaming all the music stored on your phone or tablet is now possible.
If you’ve got a Sonos player, go grab the update now— it’s live in the Google Play Store. And if you don’t have Sonos, then what are you waiting for? Go get it!
Check out more information below, a link to download the update, and a link to get your own Sonos player.
Here are the instructions provided by Sonos which explain how to stream music stored locally on your device(s).
1. Update your Sonos Controller for Android to software version 4.1.1. This release is for Android Controllers only — the rest of your Sonos components do not require an update.
2. Ensure your Android device is on your home wireless network, and then launch the Sonos Controller App.
3. Go to the Music menu and select ‘This Mobile Device’ – this option will appear if you have music stored on your phone or tablet. You will now see all of your device’s music, playlists and podcasts available and can play them on Sonos.
