The latest Sonos app for Android works on BlackBerry 10

Sonos BlackBerry Z3

The good folks at Sonos have yet to issue an official app for BlackBerry 10, and sadly the Android app throws connection issues as soon as it starts up. Thankfully there are some third-part options, but they still leave out some of the newer features. Today I came across this thread in the Connectedly forums however, where one user stated that the latest version of the Android Sonos app was working on the BlackBerry Z30. I haven't had too much luck in the past getting the official Sonos app to work at all across any of my BlackBerry 10 devices, so I didn't have much hope.

With fingers crossed and Sonos on my mind, I loaded up the latest official version of the Sonos app on my BlackBerry Z3 and much to my surprise (seriously, I didn't think it would work at all) it connected straight away and I was up and running in no time — that's the good news. The bad news is that it doesn't seem like it's working for everyone. Kevin tried loading the exact same version on his Z30 with no luck, getting the same connection issue as before. So it unfortunately doesn't look like this will work for everyone. It could be any number of issues as well — device, OS version, Android version, your Sonos setup, router, modem — you name it.

So if you're a Sonos user and also have a BlackBerry 10 device, give the latest Sonos app a shot and let us know if it's working for you. If you do get it running, hit up the comments and tell us your setup and maybe we can get a better idea of what's going on. And Sonos, if you're listening — this version is super close to working on BlackBerry 10 — so make it official!!

I've tried it before (new version) and not working on my Z30. I hope that all of this talk will ignite an interest at Sonos.

You were right zocster! Working fine now. I'll give it a full test drive this weekend and compare to RoomTunes. Now I'm hoping the same will happen with Smartthings' App. I want to use their products but can't find anybody to confirm that the app works on BB10

Wishing a year ago I knew I was going to end up purchasing an Arctic Spa, Sonos, and Hue system.. I have a BB Bold 9790 and nothing works on it. I mean, yay, sure, there are third party apps out there but I can't wait to upgrade to an Android!

If I win the contest ill test it lol. Otherwise I have no opinion and have wasted a lot of collective time.

You need to side load android runtime. 144. For those having connect issues. Reboot and wait a minute then open app. Might have to close it and re open all is fine.
Unless you have the newest ps update.
