ITunes has modified its policy of downloaded music and Sonos accordingly has opted to remove the 'On this iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch' feature. I’ve read the article Sonos put out, it made sense, but my listening experience has taken a turn for the worst.
It looked good on paper, but in practice not so good. Let me explain.
I have iTunes synched with my devices. If I am sitting on my couch and endeavor to listen to music in my library, I’ll go in to my iPhone and press a few buttons and hopefully listen to whatever I want. But, if my Macbook air is in sleep or energy saving mode, I have to get off my rear and physically log on to set the music from the laptop. There is no problem if the music originally is played from the Macbook. This is some serious “Highlander stuff”, there can be only one… way of playing synced music from
Podcasts – upload the downloaded?
The Danish national TV and radio is called DR, and they have podcasts which are enjoyed by the whole family. However, under Sonos 10.3 we’re having difficulty playing a podcast, which has been downloaded onto a phone from DR’s webpage. These podcasts are not available in streaming format, and thus we have to get an LG Bluetooth speaker instead of the seamless Sonos WiFi-based interface to enjoy that form of entertainment.
That’s not right!
Our connected Sonos network should be able to play a downloaded podcast from an iPhone without having to upload it to a streaming service. Maybe it can indeed, but I didn’t get the memo.
Am I thicker than a bag of rocks, or is there really no solution? Please advise.
