You can now stream music to your Sonos speakers using Plex

If you've invested in a Sonos speaker, and happen to be a fan of media streaming platform Plex, you're in luck.

Plex today announced it has partnered with Sonos to enable users to access Plex files through the Sonos app, allowing them to browse and stream their music library directly to any Sonos speaker.

One nice feature is the ability to access your music library away from home using the Sonos mobile software, so if your friends happen to have a Sonos speaker in their home, you can stream your music through their setup too.

To access Plex for Sonos, which is currently available in beta form, you can go to the Labs section of the Sonos app.

Guidelines on setup can also be found here, and you'll need to opt in to join the public beta and enable remote access to your Plex server files.

In a blog post, Plex states: "You’ll benefit from our awesome library and discovery features, and your personal music will look better than ever on Sonos.

"Even if your collection is a total mess, with sonic fingerprinting for our Plex Pass users and metadata for everyone else, you’ll end up with a beautifully organized library."

There's no word on how long the beta will last, but stay tuned for any updates.
