Over the past year, social music services and features have enjoyed quite the uptick. Why? People want to share the joy of listening–it’s one of the many ways to feel connected to those who aren’t in your physical proximity.
Of course, Sonos is all about listening out loud in the home, but we also want to let you share your musical tastes and discoveries with friends far and wide–starting with your Twitter followers. Did you know you can tweet what you’re listening to on Sonos directly from any of your controllers? There’s even an AutoFill feature that lets you skip all the cumbersome texting if you so choose.
To start tweeting from Sonos, check out the two tips bellow, which are categorized by which controller you use.
