Sonos announced several weeks back that they were going to have a new version of their Controller app coming, and though they've had users beta testing it for a while, today we're getting our first glimpse at how it looks. And it looks good. The above video shows off the app on an iPhone and iPad, though you can expect a similar look and experience on the Android release as well.

The app brings the features we know and love about Sonos, just better looking and more smartly organized. Album art is surfaced across the app, as is discovery of new music from across the web. Most importantly, Sonos will have universal search across your libraries and streaming services.

We still don't have a time frame more specific than this spring for when the app will be available, but we're looking forward to it nonetheless. Sonos has confirmed that the new app will be compatible with Android devices all the way back to Android 2.1 (though why you would have a high-end high-tech sound system like Sonos and be using a phone still on Eclair is beyond us).

Sonos users, what do you think? Is this updated Controller app looking like everything you've dreamed it would be?
