AirPlay 2 now available on Sonos speakers via software update
13 July, 2018, 00:03 | Author: Sammy Rose
Previous Sonos speakers will not be updated but if you have a single Airplay 2-enabled Sonos speaker, the rest can connect to the master unit via the companys own multiroom protocol. That means youll have yet another easy way to use Sonos to listen to services like Apple Music, Spotify, Audible, Pandora, and dozens of others.
However, AirPlay 2 also supports grouped speakers.
Which Sonos speakers are compatible with AirPlay 2?
Sonos' four most recent models have native AirPlay 2 support. Sonos' big-sound-in-small-speakers design has won praise, along with loyalty of some users who install them in multiple rooms. Each has the networking and processing capacity to run the update.
But I have older Sonos speakers, are they junk now?
Wisely, then, there's still a way to get AirPlay 2 working with speakers released prior to the Play:5.
If you have at least one AirPlay 2 supported Sonos speaker, but the rest are not, you can group your speakers around the house for serious surround sound. Still, it's a lot cheaper than replacing whole zones-worth of speakers completely.

Instead, there's the next best thing. Suffice to say, you need to delve into your TV's sound menus to make sure it's outputting audio via the HDMI using Dolby Digital, and doing the same with any sources, whether that be Sky, a PlayStation 4, Blu-ray player or anything else. You can be less specific, too, and ask for genres or artists as well. Right now, you can only use Siri to access Apple Music, however. But you dont have to stick with one method or the other; you can control Sonos on your terms.
The solution to that network-exiting problem could well be the HomePod.
The smart speaker market is getting more competitive every day, as Amazon, Apple, Google, and others roll out new products highlighting what their voice assistants can do.

Thanks to the help of AirPlay 2, while you're watching your favorite TV shows and movies on your iPhone or iPad, you can send the audio to your Sonos speakers. You should be prompted to do that when you next open the controller app on your phone. However, you can also manually check for the update if it's not showing up yet, by heading into the settings page in the app. Over the coming months, Airplay 2 will be enabled on speakers from Bang & Olufsen, Libratone, Denon, and others. Here you'll find a list of your Sonos devices, complete with info such as the IP and MAC addresses of each.
