Sonos doubles down on battle with Google, files second lawsuit with new claims

Legal battles between companies are destined to either play out in a settlement very quickly as each side comes to terms with the expense and ultimate lose-lose nature of a drawn out fight; or they go barreling down a path that costs everybody in the long run.

Google fires back at Sonos with its own patent infringement countersuit

Back in January, Sonos filed a lawsuit against Google, telling the story of a company that used its power to steal intellectual property and infringe on 100 separate patents. The claims even raise the topic of antitrust. The filing called for the courts to ban the sale of most Google-made products with any relationship to audio.

Sonos is releasing a new app that's incompatible with some older hardware

Sonos is releasing a new version of the Sonos Control app on June 8th, but not all of the company's previous hardware will be able to make the switch. In what seems to be a compromise regarding its controversial (and since backtracked) policy regarding abandoning legacy hardware, older devices will be left on the current Sonos app, where they'll continue to work and get security updates. Newer Sonos hardware will be able to migrate to the new "S2" Sonos app, which will get new features like saved room groups.
