Sonos is finally opening up its closed network via a newly announced Sonos Sound Platform

This allows approved services to directly integrate into the smart speaker network. The first to integrate with the program is automation service IFTTT.

IFTTT is a automation platform that connects smart home tech. Using a rule base system If This Then That.

The service is currently live in beta with limited functionality. Currently supporting:

  • Basic playback
  • Volume – up / down / mute / unmute
  • Play a set song / album / playlist

However there are a selection of default applets to give ideas on what the integration can do.

We have put together a guide on how to connect Sonos to IFFF.
