Sonos Controller for Android due March with voice control [Video]

Sonos Controller for Android due March with voice control [Video]

Sonos has announced its latest controller app, this time headed to Android smartphones. The Sonos Controller for Android will hit the Market in late March and, like the company's existing iOS apps, be a free download. New on the Android version, however, is music voice search, which will allow users to search for tracks, artists and albums using spoken requests.

Voice control also works for searching for new streaming radio stations, and the Android app has the same multi-room volume and track control as its predecessors. It requires a device running Android 2.1 or later, with a screen size of HVGA 320 x 480, WVGA 480 x 800 or WVGA 480 x 854; that basically means most recent phones.

Turns out that the Chumby 2, which was the name of the device a reportedly leaked image was being associated with, is actually called the Chumby 8.
