Is there any volume normalization for streaming services yet?

There is a post from five years ago started by a Sonos employee? https://en.community.sonos.com/music-services-and-sources-228994/volume-normalization-for-online-music-services-5611734

Cmon Sonos, get with the program!

How do you propose to get normalization work on "live" sources source as streaming or TV audio? Normalization requires knowledge and scanning of all items before playback, in order to figure out the max volume of each item. I cant think of a way for this to work on most Sonos sources.
I guess I mean for sources such as playlists or “radio” stations where the set of songs is known.

Spotify handles this fine without problem using the mobile or desktop app.

I am looking for that same experience, without a blaring song out of nowhere every so often
