Owners of the remotes are now able to control Sonos wireless speakers, including playback and volume using the buttons, and Sonos Favorites from the Harmony Ultimate remote's touchscreen or the smartphone app. Searching on set-top boxes has also been updated to include voice search on the Smartphone app, with users of a device's search box now seeing an option to enter text using voice recognition. Logitech has also updated the setup procedure for the remotes, adding in automatic detection of Philips Hue lights, Sonos systems, and other compatible networked devices.
