Sonos updates iOS app to allow iTunes music streaming from phone or tablet

Sonos has unleashed quite an impressive update to its iOS app today, allowing iPhone or iPad users to stream their iTunes library to any Sonos speaker directly. Previously, the app was limited to specific sources such as your computer’s iTunes library or streaming services like Deezer, Rdio, Slacker and others. Being able to stream on-device content directly to your Sonos:3 or Sonos:5 speakers puts the company in direct competition with Apple’s AirPlay solution, which allows users to do the same thing through an AirPort Extreme/Express router or an Apple TV.

Sonos is one of those investments that, while expensive, completely changes the way you listen to music in the home. It’s seamless, high-quality and app-friendly.

    If this is about an iOS update with no mention of Android, then why is there a Nexus in the picture?

    There is an Android app to control the Sonos system. The ability to stream music files stored on your Android device is not available yet directly. You could probably you use something like Samba to make your files available to Sonos by emulating a Windows share.
