So, we can take our tablets, with the Sonos app, and run the Sonos One speakers using a number of associated apps, like Spotify, iHeart, Amazon, etc.
Say you just want to watch a movie or something on your tablet, and output the sound to the speakers? If you can output the music stream via Wifi why can't Sonos or some enterprising young developer create a compatible app that will take any sound feed from your Sonos connected device and stream via Wifi the same way?
Seems almost too logical and simple to me. Thoughts?

Kumar's point is that if a third-party developer wanted to interface directly with Sonos playback protocols, that would require them to be hacked / reverse-engineered. That is factually correct.
Note that if you're an Apple user there are ways to enable AirPlay today (AirConnect, for example), and AirPlay 2 is coming natively to Sonos some time in 2018.
Moderator Note: As stated in this post, this is not intended functionality and we do not have an official workaround at this time. There are further suggestions in this thread for user workarounds, however.
