Now while its great to see that Spotify radio is going to make it into the Controller app, having used Spotify for a few weeks now on my Sonos system i think Sonos need to go a step further. In effect i think that the spotify app, for ipad for instance needs full integration into the Sonos system (as it does for Napseter etc) What ive found annoying to date is that if im playing a tune on my Sonos system that i like, i then have to go to the Spotify app, search, and find that tune, then click on the star button for example so that its added to my Sonos Controller. That kind of functionality should be included by default.
I currently have 3 Play 5's in the house (Master Bedroom, Kitchen, & Garage). They work great and I'm finally home to enjoy them since I work out of town 9-10 months out of the year. The new user interface is much better than the old but I still need to get used to it. Anyways...on to the issue. the ALARM. In the Master Bedroom I have the alarm set to wake up and a certain time every day of the week to the Sonos chime. The Sonos Chime is nice and I like the way it gradually gets louder. However my big complaint is that: 1) You can't turn it off from you iPad, iPhone, etc? At least no where I've seen. 2) Where is the Snooze button? Nothing pops up on the screen of your iPhone/iPad to let you know to snooze or turn it off. I don't understand why this isn't part of the ALARM feature. 3) You have to get up to turn it off at the Play 5 by hitting the MUTE button, which does turn it off but if you hit the MUTE button again...music starts to play. At this time it appears to
I have a Playbar and Sub and am very happy with them. I thought of buying a Play 1 to have on my bedside table to effectively replace my clock radio. However, there is no clock or workable alarm, snooze or volume control post alarm with the current Sonos set up. My idea is to include within the Sonos App the ability to have a digital clock displayed when chosen that can stay open when the iPhone is on a dock so this can be displayed overnight. There are various alarm clock Apps on the market that offer this. When the alarm goes off there could be a snooze and volume control on the screen of the open Sonos App that could be easily accessed by the user. This would then allow the user to have a fully functional alarm clock solution using the Sonos App and speaker/s. Thoughts??
I have been a member of the Beta program, but as I cannot add a music service (Amazon music) I have un-enrolled from the Beta Program. However, I am unable to delete the controller from my iPhone. I have deleted the app and then downloaded from the App store. But, when I open the App, it is still showing I am on the beta release. Any ideas?
Can not get CR100 to connect to my existing system - I have a bridge hooked up directly to my router and everything else is just plugged into the wall - I have a couple play 3s, sound bar, sub, couple of play 1s - About my Sonos shows WM:0 - when I push the arrows on my bridge while the CR100 is in pairing mode it acts like it is trying connect but then tells me it was unable to connect. Please try again (1) - I have turned off the cr100 and recycled it - same thing happens - please help - I am using a Mac - all of my other controllers (ipad and CR200) work
I have just moved into a new house and got a new ISP. I had to set up my play 1 and 3 as a new system. Got that set up, however it keeps asking me to update the system on the app and I keep getting "Error code 9" and I am unable to add any music services (spotify soundcloud etc) or set up so I can access my music library on my NAS drive. I was on the beta program and also left it to try it. Still got the same message. I now have 2 systems set up but can only listen to whats on my phone which is pretty useless. thanks in advance for helping
In the Sonos App (iOS) I'm not able to find how to change the sound settings in the app. It used to be you could hit settings --> Room Settings then have the option to update surround settings, bass and audio settings, etc. I'm not able to find that anywhere. Any help would be great! I was watching a show on Netflix last night and the surround settings inside the movie were really poor and I wasn't able to turn down the surround like I used to be able to. Very frustrating.
Hi, I applaud sonos for enabling the URL scheme to allow the an app (such a an home automation app) to launch the sonos app, but this is only have the job. Can we now also have a "return to originating app" button added to the sonos controller. Its possible at least in IOS as CasaTunes has this included in their controller. here's a link describing this with Roomie Remote and casaTunes [url=http://www.casatunes.com/multi-room-audio/index.php/product-tour/roomie/]http://www.casatunes.com/multi-room-audio/index.php/product-tour/roomie/[/url] quote "Simply add a Roomie Activity for listening to your CasaTunes music, add a Roomie Command of type URL, and configure the URL to launch the CasaTunes App when pressed. When launched, the CasaTunes App will display a [i]back[/i] button with an optional custom label you supply, which when pressed will return control back to your Roomie

My Android controller informs me that there's a beta update available, but when I try to install it I get a message saying I should follow the instructions in an e-mail. I have received no e-mail, so cannot proceed. And before you ask, yes, I've checked my spam folder! There's a similar thread here, but the links given are for a previous version.
