Sonos firmware update adds support for Kindle Fire

Sonos, makers of wireless music systems for the home, announced today the release of Sonos System Software 3.6 along with a new Sonos Android Controller app which supports Android tablets and the Kindle Fire.

In addition to taking advantage of the tablet’s larger screen size, new features of the app include alarms, music library management and Twitter support.

Other features of the new firmware include free access to 150 expert-programmed radio stations, ability to create your own Slacker radio, support for the AAC+ music format and the introduction of Sonos Labs, a place for users to experiment with up-and-coming music services.

On the downside, Sonos says with the 3.6 release, it will no longer support the Windows DRM format.

Discuss the Sonos update in Digital Home’s Home Theatre PC (HTPC) and media extender forum.
