Sonos and Pandora have joined together so that you can now control your Sonos speakers directly through the app on iOS. This feature is available to all Pandora users, whether you’re on the free tier or Pandora Premium.
If you’re a Sonos user you can choose speakers, group and ungroup speakers, manage volumes and rooms directly from within the Pandora app. You can also control Pandora hands-free using Amazon’s Alexa.
This is the first time that Pandora Premium has been supported with Sonos meaning that you can listen to songs on-demand and without any interruption from ads. Before this, Sonos only worked with the radio-style station offered by Pandora.
Control from Pandora
Use the Pandora app to send music to any Sonos speaker and easily control rooms and volume.
Enjoy hands-free control with the new Sonos One or by hooking up your system to an Amazon Echo or Echo Dot. Use your voice to play stations, and pause, resume and skip songs.
Try the all-new Pandora Premium
Listen to songs and albums on-demand without ads and create your own playlists. Get a free 90-day trial with this exclusive offer for Sonos owners.
Pandora has said that this allows users to control their music how they wish, and you can find out more information on their announcement blog post.
