The Best Sonos App is Here! What's New in the 8.3 Update?

We love the new update on the Sonos app so much, we had to write a little article about it!

One of the great things about Sonos is that they always listen to your feedback and then take action in the form of a free software update - and when we get an update from Sonos, we’re used to knowing it’s going to be worthwhile. In Sonos’ latest update 8.3, we cover what’s been improved below.

  1. Simpler NavigationOne of the most demanded amendments was to keep the 5-tab navigation bar permanent at the bottom of the screen, so you could go straight to the Settings for example, from the Now Playing screen. This actually makes a lot of difference and reduces the amount of time between selecting music from different sources or changing settings quickly. 
  2. Dark Now Playing Screen - The old white Now Playing screen made it look clean and fresh, but the only downside was that at night, this was a little uncomfortable and resulted in needing to decrease the screen’s brightness. We love the new black screen now and looks even clearer due to a better contrast of colours.
  3. Clearer Room Control - Now it’s even easier to see which rooms are playing what music and for larger homes with more Sonos speakers, the scrolling menu can fit more rooms in the screen, so less scrolling required!
  4. TruePlay is now available on the latest iOS devices such as iPhone 8, 8 plus and X

To take advantage of these improvements, go to the Sonos app and check for updates.
