If your Sonos One is older, worry not. In addition to streaming from iOS devices and Macs, AirPlay 2 will allow Sonos users to incorporate their speakers into multi-room setups that can be managed with Apple'sHome app and controlled with Siri. Even the Playbar or Play:1 can make use of AirPlay as long as it's grouped with an AirPlay 2 supported Sonos speaker.
As previously noted, AirPlay 2 is only fully supported on the company's Sonos One and Play:5 speakers and its Beam and Playbase soundbars.

Now you'll have control of all the speakers via your Lock screen or Control Center.
So how do I get started?
If you have a HomePod, that should have automatically updated to the latest OS version with AirPlay 2 support back when Apple released it in late May. Once updated, you can group older Sonos speakers with AirPlay 2 compatible ones. You should be prompted to do that when you next open the controller app on your phone. AirPlay also lets you unlock sound from a whole selection of content apps and services.
We'll first take a look at updating the Sonos app and then your Sonos speakers. After that, those four speakers with native AirPlay 2 capabilities should automatically show up in the AirPlay menu on your iPhone or other device.
