Hi,I find that with the amazon music apps, rarely, but sometimes the sound increases by itself by about 40%, and most often it is 5 seconds before the end of a song. Problem between Amazon and Sonos system? Just Amazon streaming service problem? What do you think about that?Thanks
Greetings fellow Sonos users,At our meditation center we use the alarm settings on Sonos to play meditation music for 1 minute every hour throughout the day. The issue that occurs with this is that once the alarm plays it erases the current playlist we are using.For example, if we play music over Sonos as part of the meditation, then a live class begins and at a specific time a special piece of music plays from “alarms” it will wipe th playlist and someone has to create a new one for the next section of music needed.Wondering if there is a workaround for this or if we could connect a second device to the Sonos port that has the timed music set up on it ? The 3rd option; would we be able to use spotify with exact timing for music to play from that streaming app to achieve this desired function?Many thanks!

I know you add/authorize Amazon Music as service, but can Sonos differentiate, and or prioritize playing downloaded songs from you Amazon Music library? (My theoretical scenario is if your internet connection speed is slow, can you play your downloaded Ultra HD Amazon Music without buffering or loading?)
I use multiple audiobook services, and have found that both Audible and Libby are compatible with Sonos, but the one I use most, Chirp, doesn't seem to be set up to play together with Sonos. Is there anything I can do to get my Chirp audiobooks to play? A workaround? Like direct wireless speaker function? Petition either Chirp or Sonos to make the compatible? Suggestions welcome. PS, I have 3 of the IKEA symfonik (spelling?) IKEA+Sonos speakers and an operating a Google Pixel Pro 6 (android system), if that is relevant.
we’ve moved from Spotify to Apple Music. It’s a shame the Sonos implementation of Apple Music is lacking this feature over Spotify. we listen to the discovery and new for you playlists and would love to tap to add to a playlist. It was talked about 6 years ago….Any updates?
Request for technical assistance. I have one Sonos Move and I bought a second one for the stereo. I can't set it up because in the S2 app I installed on my Android phone, when I try to sign in to my sonos account it shows me the message 'try again' again and again and doesn't even get to the screen where I enter a username and password. Likewise when I enter the system - add product. It asks to sign in and continues to bring me to the Try again screen again until he exits. And it also happens to me on the iPad that I try to connect to the same network. I tried to go to a completely different network, at my place of work, and on the other network the application succeeds in connecting and signing in, so I connected to my account on the other network, but when I returned to my network and tried to install the Move, it tells me that it is trying to check if the application is updated (it is) and it cannot go beyond that. It throws me out, something in the access to the Sonos servers from
Wondering if anyone is having problems using direct control from the Pandora app to Sonos? When I choose the “casting” feature in the lower right corner of the Pandora app I’m presented with a list of “devices” that I can cast to. I have no problem with google devices, but when I choose a Sonos target I have problems. At first the music gets sent to the Sonos device, but after a few minutes the controls in Pandora become unresponsive.When the song finishes and the next song begins, the Pandora app does not update, but continues to show the screen for the previous song. At the bottom pf the Pandora app screen I see a message “Buffering...Your music will be back shortly”. At this point the app has lost communication with Sonos and remains unresponsive. The only way to reset is to start a different station from Pandora. This problem is the same across multiple iOS devices, phones and iPads. I have updated all apps, uninstalled and reinstalled pandora and sonos. Also restarted mode
Since I switched to Windows 11 I can't add folders to my music Library settins. I'm trying to add a music folder that's on my internal hardrive and I keep getting the message "Sonos was unable to add the music folder, Reason: The computer "DELLPC" refused to let Sonos connect to it.
Every Sonos speaker in the house blocks Airplay streams and requests an AirPlay Password whenever Airplay Require Password is enabled on the Apple TV or in the Apple Home app.Once the password is enabled, Airplay works well with Apple devices but not with Sonos devices. No Sonos speaker is affected when the AirPlay password is disabled on Apple TV or the Home app. They continue to request the Airplay password.Resetting each Sonos speaker individually is the only thing that appears to solve the problem.Has anyone encountered this issue?(I've attempted to call Sonos, but the line keeps cutting out; case number 04688582; diagnostics 726588139)
I have stopped using the e-mail account that is linked to my iPhone Sonos mobile app but can’t delete it via the app. There is no option to ‘change’ the account whereas I have been able to, I presume, start a new account with the current e-mail. Can anyone help with this as I can’t add any products to the system as I can’t log in to the mobile app and can’t add products via the Sonos site.I did call the help-line earlier with a 15 minute wait but rang off after 17 minutes.Thanks I’m hoping in advance.
My Sonos S1 goes offline a lot. Even when wifi still working fine. But the worst thing about it is that if I’m listening to an audio file on Audible, for instance, when Sonos goes back online the book goes all the way back to the very BEGINNING of the book. It’s infuriating. Especially as there is no way to know where you were which makes you manually search for it. Anyone else experienced this before? Thank you so much in advance! kind regards,
Few years ago many users suggested to add the option to make presets for the sound settings on the app and its still didnt happened. Can i ask you pleeeeease to make presets for the whole EQ settings (10 slots to customize) such as for music we will be able set height levels to +4 and the Loudness on etc. And just by pressing on ‘music’ for example, it will change all the settings. Thanks in advance.
(tv#1) I’m running a Sonos arc sound bar on a Samsung tv using the sonos2 app, All is working great. (tv#2) I’m running a Yamaha YAS-209 sound bar on a Samsung tv using the Yamaha app, all working great.Can I pair the Yamaha sound bar to the Sonos app so I can control everything in 1 app ?
If I add a Boost to my (S1 SonosNet mesh) system that uses a Bridge: Will the Boost increase signal range so that my CR-200 won’t struggle to find the signal. If so, how do I use the Boost? Do I have my system “find” it and then I just plug it in midway between the Bridge and where I use the CR-200?Thanks in advance for your help.
Just setting up my new Sonos Roam that I bought for my daughter. I had wanted it so the she could play her music in her room in the evening without having to have her tablet. In trying to get it to work I find that it is extremely poor at finding any specific piece of music. It does not connect to Sonos playlists so cannot ask for a specific playlist. It does not connect to Spotify - which is probably about the most popular music service known to man or woman.It connects to Amazon Music - but cannot find “The Nutcracker” even though there are several albums of this name if I search for it.I say “Hey Sonos play radio four”. I get Dua Lipa - Hit List on Sonos Radio. I say “Hey Sonos play the song Borderline” - “Sorry I can’t find the song Borderline”.I say “Hey Sonos play the song Hotel California” - “Sorry I can’t find the song Hotel California”.Having tried several songs I have yet to find one that it can find.I would not recommend this to anybody in its current state.
