When Sonos launched their app last spring, they received a lot of positive feedback. They also learnt that that they made some things worse. They have listened to customer feedback  and today launched their next big update to make things better.

Whats new,


Effortlessly move your music around your home with a more accessible Rooms Menu, now available by tapping the top of any screen in the Sonos App.
Using your phone, swipe down from the now playing screen to go back to browse your music. Then swipe from far left to right to show all your music sources.
For iPad and Android tablets, a more engaging browse experience has been added. With dedicated screens for what’s playing and music discovery. Toggling between screens is easy. Building a playlist with new favorites is easier than ever.
The track progression bar is back in the now playing screen, just below the album art. Drag it to whatever point in the song to play.
