Sonos updates its software for better performance and audio quality

Sonos has released its latest software update which improves performance and audio quality. 

 

BETTER LOOKING
  • Radio by TuneIn has new icons and high-resolution album art making browsing more fun! 
  • Improvements to viewing tracks in an album take better advantage of the space on your tablet.

GOOGLE PLAY MUSIC IMPROVEMENTS

Select Google Play Music from the Sonos music menu and check out new features like recommendations based on the time of day, recent activity, enhanced playlist support and more. 

SHUFFLE IMPROVEMENTS 

We’ve improved shuffle so now you can see how it affects the queue. Turn on shuffle and the order of the tracks in the queue changes. Don’t like the new order? Turn shuffle off to return the tracks to their original playback order. Turn shuffle on again and get a different mix!

PLAY:1 IMPROVEMENTS

We’ve enhanced the clarity and presence of the PLAY:1 sound as well as optimized the PLAY:1 bass performance when it is paired with a SUB.

SIMPLER SETUP FOR SURROUND SOUND

In this release we've made home theater setup even easier. Your SUB or surrounds can now bond to a PLAYBAR without the need for a Sonos component to be wired to your router. Follow the steps in the Sonos app to set up your home theater. If your Sonos home theater is already set up – no need to change a thing.
