Sonos has officially pushed out version 5.3 from Beta its controller app for Android and brings some important changes when navigating screens within the app.
- Three taps to party mode. Put the finishing touches on your party prep with a playlist to set the mood throughout the house. Use the new drop-down at the top center of our app to easily group or ungroup rooms in just a few taps.
- Retrace your steps. Change your mind on what you want to play? Swipe down to instantly go from Now Playing to browsing. To go back one step further to the menu, swipe right from the far left to view all of your music sources.
- Distractions welcome. If you want to go back to listen to a part you missed, the track progression bar is now more prominently displayed in your Now Playing screen, just below the album art. Drag it to whatever point in the song you want to play.
The big one here is the way in which you can swipe between screens; the amount of time I’ve hit the back button only to be returned to the music source screen.
If you’re a Sonos user on Android you’ll want to grab the update, and you can do so below.
