Santa Barbara, CA /Apr. 23, 2024: Sonos today revealed its most extensive app redesign ever, creating an unprecedented streaming experience that allows listeners to organise their favourite playlists, stations, albums and more from over 100 services on one customisable Home screen.

The new Home screen provides faster access to Sonos system controls with one easy swipe up, making tab-to-tab jumping a thing of the past. As a leader in sound experience that’s focused on creating a better way to listen, Sonos intentionally redesigned the app on a modern software platform for an easier, faster and better experience that can support more rapid innovation. The reimagined app supports all existing S2 products and will be available globally through a software update for the S2 mobile app and via an all-new web app on Tuesday, 7 May 2024.

“We introduced the world to multi-room music over 20 years ago, and are proudly playing in over 15 million homes today. As we are always pushing ourselves to innovate, and listening to feedback from our passionate customers, we felt now was the time to reimagine our app experience,”

said Patrick Spence, CEO of Sonos.

“After thorough development and testing, we are confident this redesigned app is easier, faster and better. It once again raises the bar for the home music listening experience, and sets up our ability to expand into new categories and experiences.”

100+ streaming services, one Home screen

The redesigned Sonos app prioritises a listening experience that’s human – allowing you to bring your true favorites front and centre and giving you more control to make your streaming experience your own.

  • Get into your music (and off the app) faster: No need to tap between tabs — the new Home screen serves up all your favourite content and controls, all in one place. Quickly jump back into your recently played, browse libraries and recommendations from your preferred services, and fill your home with music and all the sounds you love.
  • Customise and curate: Enjoy unparalleled curation by designing your Home screen to reflect how you listen. Pin rows of your favourite content and services; then move, edit, or rearrange them to your liking.
  • Search every streaming library: Look for an artist, song, podcast, or audiobook across all your preferred streaming apps at once via an easy-to-use search bar that’s always available right on your Home screen.
  • Elevated system control: Swipe up from the bottom of your Home screen to seamlessly control your entire system and access a visual overview of what’s playing on each of your products, quickly group speakers, and dial in on the perfect volume from anywhere in the app.
  • Sonos Voice Control available with Spotify: with just your voice, you can now play all your Spotify favorites on your Sonos system, including personal or curated playlists, podcasts, audiobooks and more with ease. Spotify is set by default, no logins or settings changes required.

Accessible from any modern web browser, a brand new web app allows listeners the same seamless
system control as the mobile app. The web app will replace the existing Sonos desktop controller and will be available alongside the redesigned mobile app on May 7, 2024.
