Sonos speakers gain support for AirPlay 2

Last October, we commented that the Only U.S had added support for AirPlay 2 on your most recent speakers.

Since the beginning of last month, when the company announced that the feature would be available in July, owners of versions compatible with the protocol were waiting for the update to be released, which was released today for all iOS users.

With that, owners of the models Sonos One, Beam, Playbase and the second generation of Play: 5 they can update the Sonos app on their devices and enjoy the connection with the iPhone / iPad or iPod touch and also perform some actions through Siri.

With AirPlay 2, you can instantly send the sound from any AirPlay-compatible iOS application to Sonos. This means that you will have another easy way to use Sonos to listen to tracks from Apple Music, Spotify, Audible, Pandora and dozens of other services.

To set up Siri on AirPlay 2, it's easy: just open the Home app (Home), select the option ?Add accessory? (if you have never paired another device) or touch the plus symbol (+) in the upper right corner. Then, tap ?I don't have a code? or ?Can't scan?, select your Sonos speaker model and follow the on-screen instructions to finish.

In addition to Siri, certain Sonos speaker models have another virtual assistant, Alexa developed by Amazon, which also allows the user to control the playback (increase or decrease the volume, rewind or advance a track) of a song, for example example.

If you have a Sonos speaker model compatible with AirPlay 2 and one that is not, such as Playbar or Play: 1, you can still use the feature on the second device. To do this, simply connect one speaker to the other and enjoy the benefits of integration with AirPlay 2.
