Unconfirmed Sonos news

A couple of items that came up yesterday:

Nobody I know has heard of Google Assistant on Sonos One, yet. Next version of the Sonos software appears to be another snoozer.

"Airplay 2 may eventually come to Play:5 (2nd gen), Playbase, and One"

I just received an eMail from Sonos:

"Apple AirPlay 2 wird noch dieses Jahr auf Sonos verfügbar sein. Damit kannst du dann Sound von deinem iPhone, iPad oder Mac auf dem Play:5, der Playbase und dem Sonos One erleben. Jeder dieser Speaker ist in der Lage, AirPlay 2 für dein gesamtes Home Sound System freizuschalten."

Also there is an blog entry on the sonos website: https://blog.sonos.com/de/airplay2-coming

So i guess that is confirmed now.

For me this reads: AirPlay 2 coming to every Sonos product I do not own and to none of those which I do own (Play 1, Play 3, Play 5, Playbar).
Sad smiley.

Replace those Play:3 and old Play:5. Huge upgrade.

Right. The Play.3 was obsolete the moment the Play.1 entered the room.

I really liked the old Play.5, but boy, the Play.5 2nd gen is WAY better.

Reading this it clearly states that you just need one of the newer speakers in your network, to be able to play Airplay 2 to all your speakers. So just buy a Sonos One and your house will be enabled.

I believe it is a bit more complicated than that. You can target one of the newer speakers but then you need to group your other speakers with this one to play via Airplay 2. I may be mistaken though.
