Would users be prepared to take their Android to a dealer and have its microphone calibrated? Would they pay a fee for this service?

I can't imagine this being cheaper than buying a compatible Apple device off the used market just for trueplay use.
Certainly the cost of a beer to have a friend come over, and borrow their iOS device for 10 minutes is less?
And the Android folk should be feeling less upset with Sonos now that they can still stream from their devices, a feature being deleted for only iOS users.
Sonos will introduce Auto Trueplay on its new portable speaker, meaning it will self-tune to the room, like Apple’s whatever-it’s-called speaker. Android users will no longer be left out. I’m guessing it will be coming to the One and Beam via a firmware update, but really don’t know.

Homepod :)

Which only recently, I think, got the ability to be a stereo speaker, and still has no option to be part of a Home Theater speaker.
Just ask any Android app developer/programmer. It is a nightmare making apps for Android. Compatibility issue is a nightmare. You can never make an app compatible with every Android versions floating out there. And you cannot just make an app for latest Android version either. So, stop whining. Get an iPad or borrow an iPad. Simple. Stop bitching about Android.

People saying they are in doubt about buying sonos for this reason are silly. im an android user and have not fine tuned my speakers, Sonos still sounds damn good. And how hard can it be to borrow an apple device. There are so many sheeps with apple stuff. 

I’m one of those “sheep” as you call me, yet there are some rooms that I’ve TruePlayed, and heard absolutely no difference, and some that I’ve heard a positive change. Frankly, right now, there’s 3 rooms in my controller that haven’t been “TruePlayed”, because I don’t feel the need.

As you say, it’s not an absolute necessity. It’s just an extra that Sonos provides, but even without it, Sonos puts out absolutely outstanding product.

Is Trueplay is gimmick or real thing?

Only Apple has few devices. In general it’s a standard that OS can work on many absolutely different devices. So stop whining :)
