I posted something similar in an iPlayer thread but thought it might be helpful as a new topic.

It's possible to stream any sound from an Android device to a Sonos device. The AirAudio app will find Sonos (or AirPlay, DLNA, Cast, AllPlay, HEOS, Fire TV, Roku) devices connected to your network and stream any sound playing on the Android device. This means that any app can be used as a source - no waiting for official integration.

Unfortunately, you need to have a rooted device for this to work. I've got this setup on an old Android phone and use the phone as the main Sonos controller. Works perfectly, but there is a 2 second delay which means it's unfortunately not usable for video.
