Central control of all your music

The Sonos app is a simple way to control the different speakers that make up your Sonos system. The design and layout are simple and it's easy to interface with music services like Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play Music, or whatever you use to manage your music collection. You can create playlists or lists of favourites for each speaker, tracking them separately or creating a single playlist for the whole building. Each speaker can have different volume settings, too, so that a listener in one room can rock out while music in another doesn't drown out the conversation. You can also use a miniature version to control music playback without having to launch the full app. The visual design is a little outdated compared to modern Mac apps, but this doesn't affect performance.

Gets the job done

If you're a Sonos user, this app is a great way to control your speakers and manage your music from an OSX device.
