Mixed operation of old and new models

Sonos promises to continue support

The CEO promises to continue providing security updates and bug fixes for older models.

Perhaps it was the coincidence in time with the end of support for Windows 7 that led to some misunderstandings: when Sonos announced last week that it would no longer provide updates for older models of the multi-room system, a shitstorm apparently swept over the company. Many customers apparently feared that their products would now become unusable. Sonos CEO Patrick Spence now adressed customers again with a promise: according to him, there will continue to be security updates and bug fixes for aging Sonos devices. This means they will remain fully functional, but will not receive any new software features. Originally it was said that this would also affect newer products that are integrated with old ones. Now Spence says that they are working on a solution that will at least allow old models to run together with new models in the same home.
