Sonos Software Update is a Doozy, Adds Android Tablet Support, Slacker Streaming

Paul Lilly

If you're a Sonos user, go grab your dancing shoes and air guitar, because the Sonos System Software 3.6 update gives you more ways to rock out. One of the big additions is Android tablet support via the Sonos Controller for Android app. With Android smartphones already supported, users are now able to wirelessly control Sonos from any Android 2.2 (or above) device with this update, including the Kindle Fire.

The latest Sonos Controller for Android build also includes a few new enhancements, such as alarms, music library management, and Twitter support. You can download the app from the Android Market here .

Sonos 3.6 introduces Slacker Radio as a free music service on Sonos in the U.S. and Canada. This addition gives Sonos users access to over 150 "expert-programmed stations," as well as the ability to create unlimited custom stations from a library of millions of songs. There are ads, of course, which you can get rid of by upgrading to Slacker Radio Plus or Slacker Premium Radio.

Finally, Sonos 3.6 includes improved Spotify integration on Sonos. Spotify fans on Sonos now have access to their Spotify Inbox and can play music from Spotify's new releases and top tracks. The software update also adds support for ACC+.
