Hands-on with the new Sonos Controller for iOS

The folks at Sonos have released an update to their Sonos Controller app for both iOS and Android devices. While it doesn't change much of the functionality, it does add a redesigned UI, the ability to create playlists on the fly and universal search across all of your music services. It's been available on Android in beta form for a few weeks, but it's now officially available for everyone to enjoy.

If you haven't had a chance to check it out for yourself, we gave the app a quick run-through. It's even easier to use than before and gives a much cleaner look than previous versions. Both iOS and Android are on par so you won't find any differences between the two platforms either.

Check out the video above for a look at the new Sonos Controller app, then drop your thoughts in the comments!

Hands-on with the new Sonos Controller for iOS


Great looking and the universal search is nice, but would it kill them to put in an alphabetic index that I can tap to jump down when displaying long lists of albums, artists etc.? That single omission makes me crazy even though I love the sound of my Sonos.

One of the best new features is the ability to change the behavior of the surrounds when using with a Playbar and listening to music. Nice to be able to have the surrounds act as normal (Full) speakers when playing music.
