sonos-controller-mac-pc-update.jpgMulti-room audio specialists Sonos have revamped their Mac and PC controller apps, offering an updated interface for users looking to control the company’s speakers dotted around their homes.

New features such as instant volume control, a new Party Mode that lets you control volume levels in grouped rooms with one touch, a faster and improved search tool and a “better-than-ever” drag-and-drop interface will “make it easier than ever to find, control and play music in any room – right from your favourite desktop or laptop”, according to Sonos.

There’s also a new Mini Controller widget too, which Sonos describe as “a slick, pop-out of album art that lets you control your music while you’re working in other apps, so now it’s even easier to control any music you want – any way you want”.

The Sonos 3.7 update will best work with Mac OS X 10.6 or higher, or Windows 7 SP3. Rolling out next week, check out the refreshed software in action in the video below:
