Sonos — the company with those super cool wireless speaker systems for your home — has announced that they’ve partnered up with Google to add seamless integration of Sonos into the Google Play Music app. You can stream 20,000 of your personally uploaded tracks, and if you have All Access you can stream over 20 million of those tunes, as well.

You’ll be able to control playback (pause, play, skip, shuffle and repeat) and volume all from within Google Play. This also means you’ll have full access to playing playlists, radio stations and more over your Sonos system.

Simply hit the Cast button within Google Play, and it’ll pick up your Sonos system just as easily as it would a Chromecast. That, or you could do your bidding from within the Sonos app if you’re so inclined. Either way, it’s great that the functionality is finally here and doesn’t require shoddy bridge apps or Frankensteined solutions.

This marriage is so official that Sonos has their very own page over at Google Play. Be sure to take a look if you aren’t already part of the Sonos family and see if they have something that fits your needs. If you are, well, simply update your apps and you’ll be treated to seamless integration of your vast ecosystem of music.
