Hi Peter,

Right now we don't support Sonos Speakers natively but you might be able to connect Pacemaker to these if you use a 3.5mm jack cable from your device or if your speakers allow you to send all audio from your iOS device using AirPlay. Sonos have a guide explaining how you might be able to use AirPlay here: http://www.sonos.com/en-gb/airplay

ever since spotify worked on your sonos loudspeakers with a by passing of the sonos app it has been great... but we are still waiting for greater era to come.. when you can have a solid home party with pacemaker direct to the sonos speakers.. do the programming.. get the job done.. it feels unsatisfying that this hasn't been done Looong time ago.
Remember that we have paid for the app. I am sure somebody will do it sooner or later and then you will have lost your pole position!!!

Thanks for showing support for this. This is something still on our radar and we appreciate the support shown by the community. Right now, we don't have anything specific to announce but we really like the idea.

How annoying that having discovered this great app the out put is not available through SONOS.

I create playlists and mixes all the time but this would have saved me a lot of time if I could just stream the output of pacemaker and make it available with SONOS.

Every house I go to these days has SONOS

What a shame - more annoying that this has been asked for along time but no progress has been made.

Grrrr :( get it sorted

Hey Tom,

Thanks for the feedback. We're looking into Sonos support still. To add this kind of functionality means we would need to work directly with Sonos to make this possible. Hopefully in the future we'll have more to share about this.

Thanks Phillip

I'm sure there is a reason why you have not done this but surely if you allow the mix to be saved as a mix rather than a set of instructions. One could then just play this back through SONOS.

Why can this not be done?

For legal reaons we're unable to allow users to export their mixes as audio tracks. This is because music from Spotify is rented and not owned - therefore you do not own the right to make copies of tracks.

Thanks Phillip

Yes I understand the licensing restrictions of Spotify streamed music But what about if all the music I'm using in a mix is on my own device and purchased/owned by me and not on Spotify - why can N not create a playable mix that I can stream, access and play via Sonos?

Thanks again

Tom

Great question - recording iTunes tracks (local music on your device) is actually possible with Pacemaker for iPad but on iPhone for battery life and performance reasons we haven't enabled this technology. We'd love to add Sonos support so hopefully if there's enough interest in this feature from users and we can work with Sonos then this will be possible.
