Sonos pushes visual update for iOS, Android Controller apps

Sonos has released an update for its popular iOS and Android Controller apps, which allow users to manage their Sonos products over the air. The 3.8.1 update is mostly visual in nature, bringing with it a handful of UI-related changes for both platforms.

Most notably, the updated Sonos Controller for iOS boasts Retina display support, which is sure to please owners of the third-generation iPad. The new high-resolution graphics are designed to improve the look of both the iPad and iPhone versions of the app, the company has said.

In more good news for iOS users, 3.8.1 adds hardware volume buttons integration, meaning they can now be used to control the volume on your Sonos player.

For Android users, the update adds optimisation for all tablets, in both 7in and 10in variations. Android devices will also get landscape mode and larger album art.

“These updates not only take the visual experience to the next level, but also give customers greater control and access to their world of music on Sonos,” the company said.

The 3.8.1 update can be downloaded by following the prompts within the app. The Controller app is available for free in Apple’s App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon Appstore.
