Interested in some behind the scenes details on Trueplay? Check out our video here:
Sonos version 6.0 is adding support for HLS streaming for radio stations, this includes live streams for stations such as the BBC. Recorded content, also called “Listen Again” are not included in this update but we are working to incorporate them for 2016.
Like listening to the same song over and over again? Single track repeat is now available by selecting a song in the queue and clicking repeat twice (a third time turns it off).
This software also adds support for the new PLAY:5, which is available for preorder here and will be shipping on November 20th in the US (November 25th for the rest of the world). Find out more about the new PLAY:5 here. We know you’ll love it as soon as you have the chance to hear it.
