Newer Sonos gadgets and “rooms” now seem as AirPlay 2-compatible gadgets, permitting you to stream audio to them through Apple gadgets. The resolution is a very long time coming for Sonos which promised AirPlay 2 assist in October.
You can stream to Sonos One, Sonos Beam, Playbase, and Play:5 audio system and ask Siri to play music on varied audio system (“Hey Siri, play some hip-hop in the kitchen.”) The characteristic ought to roll out to present audio system this month.
I attempted a beta model and it labored as marketed. A set of audio system together with a Beam and a Sub in my household room confirmed up as a single speaker and a Sonos One within the kitchen confirmed up as one other. I used to be capable of stream music and podcasts to both one.
Given the benefit with which now you can stream to just about each system from each system it’s clear that whole-home audio is progressing quickly. As we famous earlier than Sonos is dealing with powerful competitors however little methods like this one assist it keep within the race.
