Re: Google Nexus 7 (2012) Sonos Advice Required
While I have never tried connecting external storage to my Nexus 7, I do have a Sonos system (which I love) and a couple of Android devices. If the music appears in the local device music library then the standard Sonos app may play it as they introduced local device music play back on Android in the latest Sonos update. I have however only used this for music stored locally on the device (it works for music on the SD card in my S3) and I have never tested it with USB attached storage. Another couple of possible options are an App called Macronos that can push any music that the Android Google Play app can play out to a Sonos speaker (so if Google Play will play it then this option will work) and another App called BubbleUPnP that is a music player/streamer app and can not only push music stored locally on the device to a Sonos speaker but also anything stored in a cloud Dropbox or Google Music account. Again I have never tested these with a USB attached storage drive.
Bottom line is it should work if the device is seeing the music as "local" if it isn't then you will need to upload it to Google Music and then use Bubble UPnP to stream it from the cloud and push it to the Sonos speaker, use a PC to store the music or get a NAS device that Sonos can access directly (controlled from the Nexus)
Apologies that this isn't a definitive answer but hopefully it at least gives some food for thought
