Sonos speakers now play much nicer with Android. On Tuesday, Sonos updated its Android Controller app to give users the ability to play music stored on phones and tablets running Google's operating system. Previously, the Android Controller app could only be used to play music stored on a PC or media server connected to the same Wi-Fi network as an Android device. The update, Sonos said, will allow users to play music, podcasts, and any other audio files stored on as many Android devices as they'd like.

Unfortunately, the app still can't access music purchased through Google Play, but users can get around this problem by downloading their songs to a PC and then transferring them back to their Android device.
