Intercom for Sonos lets you broadcast your voice to any Sonos speaker on your network. Just select your speakers from the list of available audio zones. Then hold down the Talk button and speak your message. When you let go of the talk button, your message is broadcasted to the selected speaker.
Intercom is a handy way to communicate around the house and provides the same utility as a one way intercom. Send a quick message from your front yard to the living room. Call for help from the garage. Tell the kids to quite down from your bed.

Ratings and Reviews
Absolutely amazing when it works
Best part present in the app, but missing from description: after it finish it resumes whatever was played at original volume on each speaker. Also adds ability to save speaker groups, something that Sonos app is missing. Unfortunately it works about 50% of the time. Sometimes it shows that it plays the message but speakers are silent. Sometimes it increases the volume but fails to bring it back. Also it doesn't mute music before it adjusts volume
Worked great until it didn’t
When I first downloaded it the app worked great. A little quirky in that some rooms would show up twice, and only one of them would actually work. A slight annoyance, but I worked around it.
After about a month though it started not finding the speakers. I would try and retry over and over. It never found them again. I uninstalled and reinstalled. Tried everything I could think of. Nothing.
Emailed the developer several times. No response at all. It ended up being a waste of money.
Would give it 5, but...
You can't select specific groups of speakers. You either select one, or "all call". I suppose if you pick a speaker that's already in a predefined group, you get something in between, but more granular control would be nice. Otherwise, an AWESOME app. (Update: They added ability to have groups. 5 stars!)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
