Sonos integrates with Google Play Music for seamless streaming to speakers and players
Wireless Hi-Fi purveyor Sonos believes it has found a "great partner" to bring its vision to life "for the first time on a global scale". Big words directed at a big company - Google. Starting today, owners of Sonos' Wi-Fi speakers can stream music directly from within the Google Play Music App, or stream Google Play Music from the Sonos app to the company's range of hardware. You will be able to start a song in any room voiced by Sonos' stuff. If you happen to be an user of both, then this must feel like a bliss.
There are some requirements for the operation, though. Your Android must be on the same Wi-Fi network as your Sonos gadgets, and you must have the Sonos Controller app. Then, you are supposed to open Google Play Music, tap an icon in the upper right corner, and choose which speaker you'll be rocking out to. If you'd rather listen through Sonos Controller, though, listening is as simple as choosing Google Play Music from the list of supported devices.
In addition, tapping the Chromecast icon with Google's Play Music app brings the option to stream music to anywhere you happened to stick a Chromecast or three.
Sonos and Google Play Music's apps are free and available for Android and iOS.

I'm more interested in the white-faced Nexus 5 in the thumbnail.

Exactly same thought. BTW why is it running Jelly Bean?
