Spotify Connect was just announced and I was surprised that I didn't see Sonos in the list of companies that would provide support. Many Spotify users have been asking for a long time to be able to use the Spotify app as the controller for selecting songs, as it provides a superior experience (you still can't even see the Top 5 songs in the Spotify view within the Sonos app, and it is difficult to look through an artist's collection to find a specific song unless you know which album it was in). Please support spotify connect. Additional details on Spotify Connect are here: http://www.theverge.com/2013/9/3/4688166/spotify-connect-launches-to-stream-music-to-compatible-speakers If you look at the post on theverge, even the first comment was one asking for Sonos support for the feature.
well, sort of ;) Just thought that I would share this with the community - I am running a sonos controller from my web browser under linux ! happy times I just installed an extension called "arc welder" ([url=https://developer.chrome.com/apps/getstarted_arc]https://developer.chrome.com/apps/getstarted_arc[/url]) into my chrome browser. Arc welder lets you run android apps in your chrome browser and guess what ? the 5.3.1 apk of sonos controller for android works a treat go forth, run your sonos controller under linux. at last. All features of the android controller seem to work perfectly. Julian
Hi, I am in the midst of building out a Home theatre setup and like many would like to reduce the number of wires in my living room. I currently have a PRIMARE SPA 22 A/V receiver ([url=http://www.primare.net/assets/_managed/cms/files/SPA22usermanual.pdf]http://www.primare.net/assets/_managed/cms/files/SPA22usermanual.pdf[/url]) and also a pair of JM Lab Focal front speakers both of which produce exceptional sound. I would like to know whether it is possible to use my existing 2 channel setup with the PRIMARE SPA 22 A/V receiver but introduce a centre channel and 2 rear surround channels all connected to the A/V receiver so that I can have the A/V receiver pushing the sound from a BluRay movie/player to the the Sonos components and the 2 Focal speakers. Thanks, M
I am not sure if this should happen but if i use my iPhone Sonos app to play music I can control that series of tracks with my apple watch. I can change the volume, pause and skip tracks plus i get the track names. I cannot add to the playlist or change the speakers or have access to the library. It does not work with iPads or laptops. It seems that once the iPhone app has been opened then the watch can be used. witch does seem logical. I have an original watch series 0 and an iPhone 5s
As the title suggests I have recently updated to v9.0 but the feature I am most looking forward too trying (playing apple music via Siri voice commands to my Sonos One) does not seem to work. I can open the apple music app on my phone, select the sonos one as a speaker to airplay2 and hit play - that now works ok. Cheers Sonos ! ? BUT The Sonos blog guide indicated that if I were to add the airplay 2 enabled sonos product (sonos One in my case) to my homekit app as an accessory this would then allow Siri voice commands via mu phone. I have followed those steps to add my sonos one but it seemingly leads to nothing - I open the home kit app, select accessory and add without code but then the speaker does not appear. I have tried pressing pairing button on the unit. Am I missing something here??
Just read the announcement of the new Google Cast for Audio ([url=http://chrome.blogspot.com/2015/01/introducing-google-cast-for-audio.html]http://chrome.blogspot.com/2015/01/introducing-google-cast-for-audio.html[/url]). I don't see Sonos listed as an early supporter, though. Any chance something is in the works?
Like many users, we use Sonos in two different houses. We have two NAS's of music that I'm planning on keeping synchronized with RSYNC. What doesn't sync or cant get exported are Sonos Playlists. It would be great to be able to ad-hoc export them and then to import them as well. Using the UPnP interface, I've noted a Java program that can export playlists, but importing them is a bit troublesome. It would be great to have this feature.
I'd very much would like to control (or at least monitor) my Sonos system over VPN. I can control my lighting and HVAC via Lutron and my IP cameras but it appears that the Sonos iOS app only functions over the device's wireless interface (network). All that is required is a change to allow the Sonos app to use any network, wifi or otherwise. This could be implemented as a enumerated list in the app's settings where the user could enable or disable (on or off slider) each network type and then sort the list to establish a priority. I understand that there would be a delay if for example, my primary network was wifi but I was currently connected remotely via VPN, I would have to wait for discovery via wifi to timeout before the app would begin searching via VPN. This would be acceptable to me. Thanks!
We are writing summer 2019 and still Sonos only supports SMB version 1 for the Music Library share. [b]This is not acceptable.[/b] A file share running SMB1 is extremely vulnerable to all the variants of cryptolocker virus that exists today. File share servers (NAS, Windows, Apple OS) can only support one version of SMB - so you cannot from the same box have one file share (for Sonos) using SMB1 and the other file shares using SMB2 or SMB3. This way Sonos puts each and every file share at serious risc - just because they don’t update their file share protocol to comply with this century. And for the record - the “solution” through PLEX is not a solution. Unstable at best.
Upgraded to v8 on my iPhone and for the life of me cannot figure out how to switch the playbar back to the tv audio music source after playing music on the playbar? This was extremely easy on older version but not do not even see the option for TV audio? Suggestions? The TV music source is on the upgraded controller on the Mac but cannot locate on the phone app.
