Social, usable from the Hopper's quick-launch bar, will allow viewers to log into and manage multiple Twitter and Facebook accounts, as well as showing a Twitter feed for the show or channel being watched at that time. A data bar at the bottom of the screen will provide more stats and information about the program, including what areas of the US are commenting about the show on Twitter, and the program's "sentiment rating."<br />

While it has worked with the music streaming service before, version 4.1 of the app will now allow for playlists to be created using music from any source without using the queue, and will also allow users to create and edit Spotify-specific playlists, according to the company <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/286588==http://blog.sonos.com/news/new-sonos-software-update-enhances-spotify-sonos-playlists/" rel='nofollow'>blog</a>.
