Hi-Fi system producers Sonos today released new controller apps for its wireless sound system, improving what was already seen as class-leading software.
Today’s update enables users on Macs, PCs and mobile devices to control their music using a mini-controller while browsing other apps, and use a single search box to search for specific artists, songs or internet radio stations from different music sources.
Users will also be able to drag-and-drop songs to a playlist and use a Party Mode to control the music volume in single or multiple rooms at one touch.
“Plus, we’ve brought some of the hidden perks of Sonos front and centre,” the company says, “with the Sleep Timer and Alarms now accessible from the main window. And speaking of looks, the new Controller apps will give your eyes something to smile about.”
The international music brand specialises in multi-room, wireless music sound systems, with router-based music control.
Sonos music systems include the PLAY:5 and PLAY:3 models, priced at $599 and $419, respecively. Bridge and Connect devices, that connect speakers or stereos to an internet-enabled wireless network, start at $79.
