Avec 8 Play:1 et 1 Connect et 1 controller Androïd sur Samsung S7 (87% du marché mondial des smartphones en 2016 !) je m'étonne de l'inertie de Sonos qui ne fait rien pour développer TruePlay sur Android.
I think you've made your point, insertusernamehere. No need to do a "+1" on every single thread that mentions this. Please.

No nead to take the piss ffs.

You can be sure that Sonos would rather have Trueplay on Android than not as they will inevitably cheese off a lot of customers but it is extremely churlish to suggest this is for any other reason than the stated (by Sonos) variation in microphones leading to variable results. I'm quite sure they will have attempted to calibrate the devices on the fly but for all we know the microphones are so rubbish that not only do they vary tremendously by phone but also temporally during the tuning process.

Either way. It IS trivial to borrow a mates iOS device for 10 minutes and tune your speakers
Well, ELAC doesn't appear to have a problem doing it with Android phones, so it is feasible. I believe they require a microphone calibration step before the room tuning.

Actually IMO yes i do to show my agreement.

I love Sonos. Now comes Trueplay for tuning my Sonos speakers. What? Only iOS? Does anyone else here have an Android phone?

I'd be happy to. I'll offer $5. Each, even.

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?

Will there ever be an Android version? If not, does anyone wish to purchase my Play 3s?
The reasons for no Android is the number of different microphones on Android hardware, even within the same model line, makes it impossible to configure the Trueplay algorithm for every one. iPhone mics are standardized to just a few models. so the configuration is possible.

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.
