Now that Sonos has added AirPlay 2 connectivity to its range of speakers, it's time to board the Apple train. With AirPlay 2 you can now stream directly from your iPhone to a Sonos device or ask Siri on an iPhone, iPad or HomePod ($ 349 at Walmart) to get your new beam Soundbar to control, for example.

Unlike most Sonos setups, adding AirPlay 2 is not as easy as adding a new speaker. But CNET is here to help you through the extra steps.

What you need:

First: Download the latest version of the Sonos app ̵

1; Sonos notifies you when your speakers or software need updating. Just click OK. In general, you do not have to visit the App Store. Once everything is up to date, there is another step.

Once this process is complete, each speaker can be considered as an AirPlay 2 device, and Siri and Alexa can work simultaneously. That is, Siri over your phone and Alexa on the Sonos One ($ 189 on Amazon.com) and Beam. That's it, that's all you have to do. Come on, stream!
