With Sonos version 6.4 there are some big changes to playing music on Sonos controllers. We’re making it even easier to put on music and have it keep playing. Here's some useful information for you about what's new, and don't forget to check out our blog too
for some more.
The default tap or double click function has changed. Tap any song once and it will start to play. Select any song from within an album or playlist and Sonos will replace your queue and play that track followed by whatever comes next.
Listen to a whole playlist by tapping ‘Play All
,’ or hit ‘Shuffle
’ and mix it up, or start an album right from the album view by tapping on the ‘Play’ icon on the artwork.
You can still build your own track order and queues by tapping *** next to any song. Select ‘Play Now
’ to skip the current song and add the selection to the Queue as the next song or songs. Choose ‘Play Next
’ or ‘Add to End of Queue’ and build a playlist.
Once you’ve changed what’s in a queue, Sonos will ask you before wiping out your hard work. If you make a queue you like, save it and it will be faster than ever to jump back in later.
We know there are some huge changes here and hope that it doesn’t take too long to get used to it. Play around with the functions and new menus. You might delete your Queue a few times, so make sure you save the playlists that you like. Discover some new music and try all the options for a bit, and don’t forget to show your friends and family just in case they haven’t seen the news.
