Developer of wireless multi-room music systems for the home Sonos announced its Controller app for Android, to allow the lucky few with Sonos’ expensive gear to control music around the house from their smartphone.
The pitch goes like this:
With the award-winning Sonos S5 in any room and an Android phone in hand, music lovers will enjoy an unmatched wireless music experience in the home. You’ll be able to access and play a multitude of music and playlists from the Internet to your personal music library – all throughout the home, wirelessly. And with the free Sonos Controller for Android app, you can control all your music in every room instantly, all from the palm of your hand. In addition, the Sonos Controller for Android features Sonos’ latest innovation in the home music experience – music voice search – allowing users to find any artist, album or track by simply speaking into the phone.
In order to use the Sonos Controller app, you’ll also need one of Sonos ZonePlayer devices such as the Sonos S5, which is an all-in-one wireless music system you can plug in anywhere. Of course, you’ll still need to wait for the Sonos app to hit the Android Market and that should happen at some point in March…
