Sonos is set to launch an Android app for their highly popular wireless sound and management system. It’s expected that the application that gives users the ability to control your Sonos system through your phone will be launched in Australia in March.
Sonos already has applications for the iPhone and iPad and they will show the new Android application at next week’s World Mobile Congress in Barcelona
John McFarlane, CEO of Sonos, told TechRadar in the UK “We think we make a perfect pairing for Android. It has taken a year to get the application sorted but we think it will be one of the best on the Market.
“By entering the Android world we are going to be the best music system for Android. It will bring Internet radio into your house, as well as a variety of music services”
“It is the same theme [as the iPhone controller] of pick a room, pick a song and you can start playing.”
The Sonos for Android app is completely free and is compatible with all of Sonos’ products.
It isn’t compatible with all Android products, though, as you will need to have Eclair (Android 2.1) and above.
The app is best used on a screen size of HVGA 320 x 480, WVGA 480 x 800 or WVGA 480 x 854.
