Connect your speakers more freely
An amazing new addition to the capabilities of the Sonos system, Sonos have now released a free upgrade available on all new and already purchased Sonos systems. With this Sonos update you won't need a Sonos BRIDGE for Multi-Room playback between your speakers, making things even simpler.
You will be prompted on the Sonos Controller app that an update is required.
Now you can play music in sync between rooms on Sonos speakers, or play different tunes in each room all from your Apple device. You can now allow up to 32 people to add music to a playlist in any room using their own iPhone, to create wonderfully interactive party nights.
Please note that if you're using a Sonos PLAYBAR with a subwoofer or wish to build a 5.1 home theatre system, you'll still need to use the BRIDGE.
Sonos Android compatibility
Play music from your Android phone or tablet through your Sonos wireless device. If you have Android 2.1 or higher (Android 2.2 and higher is required for podcasts), it only takes three easy steps. Update your Sonos Controller for Android to software version 4.1.1 - the rest of your Sonos components do not require an update.
When you've confirmed your Android device is on your home wireless network, launch the Sonos Controller App. Select ‘This Mobile Device' from the Music menu and see all your device's music, playlists and podcasts ready for playback on your Sonos device.
Wireless and Ethernet capabilities
If you choose to operate your Sonos PLAY:3 wirelessly, simply use your Ethernet port and bring standard Internet connectivity to your PC, set-top box, DVR, game console or network hard drive. This enhances the device's practicality, whilst providing a host of connectivity options.
Big things do come in small packages
Use your Sonos PLAY:3 Wireless Multi-Room Speaker wherever you desire as its compact size allows for balanced horizontal or vertical use, fitting well around the home.
You have the power
Turn your Android, iPhone or iPad into a remote control with a downloadable app through the wireless connection, for modish functionality between devices.
