For those of you Sonos speakers, you’re going to love this. Google announced this morning that Android users can now stream Google Play music directly to their Sonos speaker through the app. That’s a pretty big deal, considering how popular Sonos speakers are right now. Instead of using the Sonos app, you can just use the Google Play Music app on your phone, which is probably a lot better than the Sonos app.
“In Google Play Music, we’ve found a great partner to bring this vision to life for the first time on a global scale. Together, we’ve created a music experience that shows how media, devices, and sound can seamlessly work together in the home.”
All you need to do is tap on the Chromecast icon in the corner, and then choose your Sonos speaker, instead of Chromecast obviously. It’s just that simple. If you’re like me, and you live in Google Play Music, than this is a great thing to have, especially with All Access available for streaming to Sonos too. For those that don’t know, Sonos speakers are kind of like Chromecast, except they are speakers and not a TV. Nonetheless they are still some pretty amazing speakers.
With Google Play Music, you’ve got over 22 million songs at your fingertips, especially if you have All Access for $9.99/month. You’ve also got your personalized playlists and radio stations like the “I’m Feeling Lucky Radio”. It’s definitely a great experience with Sonos there. You can also upload your own music for free to Google Play. Google gives you storage for 20,000 songs. So if you have a song that Google Music doesn’t have, you can simply upload it. It’s just that easy.
