Sonos for Mac (formerly Sonos Desktop Controller) allows you to control software for the Sonos Music System. The app is committed to keep improving the home listening experience. Enhancements and changes included in the latest free software update are listed below.

Select Google Play Music from the music menu and check out new features like recommendations based on the time of day, recent activity, enhanced playlist support and more. Turn on shuffle and the order of the tracks in the queue changes. Don’t like the new order? Turn shuffle off to return the tracks to their original playback order. Turn shuffle on again and get a different mix! This release makes it easy to set up a home theater. Your SUB or surrounds can now bond to a PLAYBAR without the need for an app component to be wired to your router. Follow the steps in the app to set up your home theater. If your Sonos for macOS home theater is already set up – no need to change a thing.

Music in your house
When it comes to playing music, we believe all rooms should be created equal. That's why you can put ZonePlayers in absolutely any room where you want music - either connected directly to speakers or to your home theater and stereo system. With the app, no room is off-limits and you can add music to practically any number of rooms: the bedroom, the backyard, even the bathroom.

Music in your hands
The tool puts the control of all your music and all your rooms right where it should be -- in your hands. With the touch of a finger you can find and play a world of music, whether it's streaming directly from the Internet or stored on your computer. Tune in to your favorite radio station or browse through your entire music library. You can play the same song in every room or choose different songs for different rooms. It's up to you. And so is which Controller you use - the dedicated Sonos Controller, the app Controller for iPhone, the app Controller for Mac or PC, or a combination of all four.
