AirPlay 2 is now available on Sonos, allowing audio from any iOS app to be streamed directly to Sonos sound systems.

With AirPlay 2, users can play music and podcasts from iOS devices directly to Sonos speakers including Sonos Beam, Sonos One, PlayBase and the second generation Play:5.

Non-AirPlay compatible speakers like the Playbar or Play:1 can also utilise AirPlay 2, provided that they’re grouped with one of the AirPlay friendly devices in the Sonos app.

AirPlay 2 users can instantly stream audio from any AirPlay-compatible iOS app to Sonos. This includes services such as Apple Music, Spotify, Audible and Pandora. AirPlay also allows users to watch videos on apps like YouTube, Hulu, Netflix and more with the audio playing through Sonos.

Those using AirPlay 2 will also be able to use Siri to control Apple Music on Sonos.

Using an iPhone or iPad, users can tell Siri what to play and where to play it with voice commands such as “Hey Siri, play Beats 1 Radio in the bedroom,” or “Hey Siri, turn it up in the living room.”

Sonos customers can start using AirPlay 2 now with a free software update.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
