Recently I have turned off SMB 1.0 on my Windows 10 as per Microsoft's recommendation (https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/filecab/2016/09/16/stop-using-smb1/). However, after I've disabled SMB 1.0, the Sonos application stopped working on that Win10 machine (not able to connect to local drives configured in the library). I had to turn SMB back
Could you please advise when will Sonos start supporting SMB 2.0 or later?

Thanks for asking. As suggested already, we don't have any official plans to announce or share right now. Sonos only uses SMB for sharing your local music library off of a Windows computer or a network attached storage (NAS) drive. Mac computers share to Sonos through a different protocol that's setup using the Sonos controller.
If your music listening is through a music service, you can have SMB disabled on your system and Sonos won't have any trouble at all. The only trouble that comes up with SMB1 disabled is for those music shares listed above.
I'll pass on your feedback and interest in SMB2 to the team to make sure they are aware of it all.
