We have a lot of exciting plans for the future and we wanted to share some of them with you all. First, check out Patrick Spence's post on the Sonic Internet here: http://blog.sonos.com/en/welcome-sonic-internet/
In addition to our Sonos One, coming October 24th, and support for Alexa through Alexa devices, we’ve been hard at work on some great new partnerships as well.

We’re excited to announce that Sonos is bringing Airplay 2 to our platform, available next spring. You will be able to play from devices in your Apple ecosystem – including content from YouTube and Netflix - now on your Sonos players. You will also have the ability to talk to Siri-enabled devices (iPhone, iPad, AppleTV) to play music on your Sonos speakers. We’re not sharing all the details around this integration yet as there’s still work to be done, but we hope you’re excited too. We’ll share more soon, so watch this space.

The Sonos Developer Platform is also coming in 2018. We will be officially opening a developer platform, and deliver APIs to any developer who wants to integrate with Sonos. We'll also be rolling out a certification program so the highest quality experiences will have the ability to earn the “Works with Sonos” badge. You’ll start seeing some exciting home automation options out there with our official badge, marking them as partners and certifying their API integration.

We know you’ve loved using your Spotify App to control Sonos and we’ve been working to bring that experience to more services. Starting in the coming months, we’ll be adding the ability to control Sonos directly from additional music service apps, including Tidal, Pandora, Audible and iHeart Radio.

We hope you're as excited as we are.

audible officially available now https://en.community.sonos.com/announcements-228985/audible-on-sonos-6804502
Any plans for supporting MLB Game Day audio on Sonos. If not, can I return my 9 Sonos products?
MLB has already stated that they were the ones who completely overhauled their steaming services, and they are experiencing a backlog testing devices that must be certified for using the new streaming methods. This includes Sonos. So talking to them is probably your best bet.
Sonos products featured MLB audio as a major feature in the in-store display, which prompted me to buy Sonos,

Sonos website still states that MLB audio is a feature of Sonos speakers.

This is 100% on Sonos. It's their product. Their issue to resolve.

No one knows why mlb did this, ask them. Sonos didn’t change anything

Uhhhhh, if you read the post above, Sonos already has resolved it. MLB just hasnt't gotten around to testing their resolution. Should Sonos storm the halls of MLB headquarters and force them to test it at gunpoint?
