They are highly rated, which makes us think; What if we could connect our Windows 10 computer to a Sonos device and play crazy songs. Unfortunately, these devices do not support listening to music from a computer, what can we do to resolve this issue?

How to Play Computer Sound from Sonos Speakers

From what we’ve gathered, there aren’t a lot of good options for streaming audio from your computer to Sonos speakers. However, we came across an application called Broadcast what you hear (SWYH). Keep in mind that if you have a Mac or mobile device, it will not work for these platforms as it is exclusive to Windows at the time of writing.

Before going ahead, it should be noted that the sound is transferred from the computer to Sonos via SWYH tends to be delayed, therefore you should only use it to listen to music streaming rather only audio film. In addition, the application has still not received an update for the past few years, so although it works in the same way as expected, a day will come when it will not.
