Trueplay and Android
I have nearly $2000 of Sonos equipment. I love Sonos. Now comes Trueplay for tuning my Sonos speakers. What? Only iOS? Does anyone else here have an Android phone? I have used a Yamaha 4000 sound bar for years with speaker tuning and I love it. I really think Trueplay would improve my Sonos experience so I guess I better get an iPhone? :S:?

Borrow an iOS device for an hour or so and Trueplay your system. All settings will still apply, and are able to be switched on and off, when controlled via Android.
You seriously think that you're missing out on that much, and don't have a friend who has an iOS device you could borrow for an hour?
Actually IMO yes i do to show my agreement.
Either way. It IS trivial to borrow a mates iOS device for 10 minutes and tune your speakers
No nead to take the piss ffs.
Comment vous savez il's ont rien fait?
Why would any sensible person want to spend their good money on a device that is used once and then filed away for years? It's a 5 minute job to borrow an iPhone or iPad.
Besides, as custodians of the only planet we have it beholds us all to push back on our disgustingly consumerist society.
If there are too many variation on Android, how about you target the majority first? Samsung galaxy S7 / S8 series?
Or sell separate microphone to calibrate which can be resold/shared for other Android users.
No progress after 2 years on Android trueplay, will be hesitant to invest on Sonos promises... 😞
Tuning is quick and easy.
It takes just a few minutes and an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
Where would you prefer it to be "advertised"?
This is what it says about Trueplay in Sonos product page.
"Sonos uses Trueplay tuning to make sure you get the very best sound out of your PLAY:3. No matter where you put it."
With sonos phylosophy of agnostic system and the price, I expected that to just work :P
My mistake though for did not do research (just got over excited with many reviews which often does not mention about this as well).
It will be helpful if Sonos can make a solution for Android (either with selling separate mic or select major brands???).
It is useful for me who don't have many friends with iPhone.
I cannot move my speaker or play around with different placing unless I have iPhone on hand next time.
Also good luck bringing this speaker to South East Asia not many IPhone around :?
Why market a feature like True Play and then tell most of your audience they have to jump through silly hoops to get it to work and again if they move any devices?
