Sonos Now Supports Apple Music Spatial Audio on These Speakers and Sound Bars
Sonos this week updated its iPhone and iPad app with support for Apple Music spatial audio playback on compatible Sonos speakers and sound bars, including the newly-released Era 300, the Arc and Arc SL, and the second-generation Beam.
Spatial audio simulates surround sound, making it seem like the audio is coming from all around you for a 360-degree listening experience. Apple Music offers thousands of songs in spatial audio, which are labeled with a Dolby Atmos badge in the Sonos app after updating to version 15.2, available now on the App Store.
Sonos launched new Era 300 and Era 100 speakers today with AirPlay 2 support for wirelessly streaming audio from Apple devices. The speakers were announced earlier this month, with more details and pricing outlined in our previous coverage.

I have a HomePod, Sonos Arc and two Sonos One. The Arc had its firmware update this morning, all Apple devices have been updated a few hours ago. But it seems like the only way to play Atmos content is
* by playing it from my iPhone only
* by starting playback from the Sonos app only
So, at home, I must use my iPhone and must use a third party music app for all this to works? Surely it must be easier and I'm missing something?
Just playing music via AirPlay from my Mac seems much easier, especially with Siri (for once, it works).
