Sonos finally updated the desktop controller app to look and feel with the mobile software, which the company released in today's App Release Notes. Desktop controllers are now much easier to use and understand, and are very similar to what you can see in Sonos' iOS and Android apps.
As part of an update that is version 9.2, you can set a maximum volume limit for a specific Sonos device and room with the device. Doing so can prevent a guest from accidentally exceeding the limits of noise, or accidentally bursting out loud music (eg, your child's bedroom). This update also adds support for the upcoming Sonos Amp announced at the end of August.
As part of this shift in desktop software, Sonos says that the macOS and Windows versions of the software will lose some of the functionality that is no longer needed. First, you can not set up an Sonos device or switch to another room using a desktop application. "Sonos uses passwords." Everything is mobile, so you do not have to worry about it, "he says. .
Sonos version 9.2 also ends support for the first Sonos Dock eight years ago. Sonos says it can be used as a charger, but it will no longer connect to a wide range of Sonos systems. This update also partially discontinues support for iOS 9 and Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich. Devices on both operating systems can "browse, search and play music using this version of the Sonos app." But you can not add new speakers or set up a new Sonos system.
