Samsung adds Spotify Connect support to Shape speaker range

Samsung has updated its Wireless Audio Multiroom range of home audio equipment to allow Spotify to run off multiple speakers simultaneously, bringing Samsung's multiroom speaker system in line with competitor Sonos. Applying to the Shape M7, Shape M5 and other audio products in the range, the added Spotify Connect support allows for music to be controlled through the Spotify app itself instead of through a dedicated speaker app.

Logitech adds Sonos control to Harmony remotes

Logitech has added a few new features to its Smart Control and Ultimate Harmony remote controls. Owners of the remotes are now able to control Sonos wireless speakers, including playback and volume using the buttons, and Sonos Favorites from the Harmony Ultimate remote's touchscreen or the smartphone app. Searching on set-top boxes has also been updated to include voice search on the Smartphone app, with users of a device's search box now seeing an option to enter text using voice recognition. Logitech has also updated the setup procedure for the remotes, adding in automatic detection of Philips Hue lights, Sonos systems, and other compatible networked devices.
