SONOS have just released an update that ads a nice new feature. You can now playback music directly from your device. Your iPhone, iPad or iPod will need to be running iOS6 to make this happen.

Normally you’d have to go in search of an online service to start streaming around your home, but now that music already on your device can be used. Given this functionality has been available on the desktop, it’s surprising it’s taken this long to arrive.

While this is a welcome addition, there are other developments that should be higher on the priority list. The addition of a Windows Phone app for one. That aside, there’s still no AirPlay support, that means if you’re playing content on your device, you walk in the door, you should be able to push one button to have that streaming around the house.
