New features in updated Sonos Controllers for iOS and Android

The new Sonos controllers, version 3.8.1, offers a variety of enhancements for Android and iOS devices.

The Sonos Controller for Android has been optimized for both 7-inch and 10-inch Android tablets, giving customers improved control of their music. Landscape mode on Android tablets is also added. The album art screen has also been made larger to more clearly show what is currently in play.

The Sonos Controllers for iPhone and iPad now look even better with high-resolution graphics designed for Retina displays. You can now use the hard volume buttons on your iOS devices to control the volume on your Sonos system, but only when the app is active.

Sonos has not yet released an Windows Phone app.
