Janko Roettgers for Variety: Sonos is finally going beyond its own app: Spotify users will soon be able to control their Sonos speakers straight from the Spotify app, the company announced at an event in New York Tuesday.

The home improvement giant earlier this week began rolling out voice-integrated skills for Iris, its smart home system.
