Sonos owners have enjoyed a pretty solid audio system for quite some time now, and iPhone owners who own Sonos systems also have the convenience of controlling it from their smartphones. Now the Sonos Controller is finally hitting Android, over a year after the iOS version, but there are a few tweaks that make it a bit different from the iPhone version.
With the Sonos Controller for Android, users will be able to use voice commands, even if there is loud music playing in the background – at least, that’s what Sonos tells us. Unlike the iPhone version, you’ll also be able to control your system’s volume with the physical volume buttons on your Android device when you’re in the app. It’s a small change, but for those used to the controller that comes with Sonos systems, it’s a nice little feature for the app.
You’ll be able to control all your music, whether it’s from your personal library or Internet streaming services like Slacker or Pandora, from within the app. It’s convenient if you’re not near your Sonos system, whether you’re in another room where speakers are set up or perhaps you’re entertaining guests at a party.
