Keeping its word to tweak its line of audio gear as needed to improve performance, Sonos' upcoming software update takes aim the Play:1. When version 5.4 arrives, audio clarity for the compact speaker will get a boost, making vocals sound better. What's more, the Play:1's bass tones were dialed in to better pair with the Sub in more robust setups. Speaking of those, the company nixed the required hub for connecting multiple speakers last year, and now it's offering the same wireless configuration for living rooms. Should you choose to employ a couple Play:1s as part of your home theater system, you'll no longer need that Bridge, Boost or physical connection to a Soundbar in order to connect them. New features are coming to the Sonos app to expand those services you've added -- things like recommendations for the perfect track at a certain time of day. And that list of supported third-party services is said to grow, too. If you can't wait for the update to officially arrive this summer, you can give the beta a go right now on desktop and Android controller apps.
