I recently decided to try Amazon Music Unlimited over Spotify, but when I try and play music from the amazon app and click the cast button only one of my sonos speakers shows up. I have 2 One SL a beam and a roam. In Spotify you can easily choose which speaker to cast to. Am I missing something. I have removed my amazon account and then added back to the sonos app and no luck. It is very frustrating. I have an android. I was just unhappy with the sound quality from Spotify so wanted to try Amazon Music.
I'm unable to control the volume of my Sonos Move without unlocking my Pixel phone and opening the Sonos app. This can't possibly be right? I've updated the settings per the help article and restarted everything but it's still not working.When you're listening to music you should just be able to pick up your phone and adjust the volume. Needing to unlock it and navigate to the Sonos app to change the volume is madness! This is my first time owning a Sonos product (I've been 100% Bose up to this point). Bose allows me to do this. Surely this is a bug? If not this thing is going back.
I have a single album, about 30 songs that I uploaded on YouTube Music. When I navigate through the Sonos app, it says "Unable to Browse Music"I have removed YT Music several times and re-auth’d but nothing helps. All other Uploaded Albums work fine. The album works fine in the YT app, just not through Sonos.
I’m having real issues streaming Deezer through Sonos (S1), which have been prevalent for over a week now.I can browse Deezer, access all my Deezer content (favourites, playlists etc), but when I try and stream through Sonos I get an error saying it can’t connect to the server, or it can’t add the tracks. Amazon Music, BBC Sounds, TuneIn all work fine, but not Deezer.I've tried reauthorizing the account, deleted the account and added it again after 10 mins, reinstalled S1, reset my sonos system (deleted all my speakers, turned everything off and on again, added everything back again) but with the same issues, but only with Deezer. Has anyone else had anything like this?
I’ve got a new Synology NAS and trying to connect Sonos to the music folder on it. I’ve enabled SMBv1 and tried everything else that I’ve read in the Sonos community and Synology knowledge base. (I used a WD NAS for years with Sonos, BTW)I’m using a Mac and the path to the music folder is://NASsynology/Volume 1/for sonos(I’ve tried creating a separate folder just called “sonos” thinking maybe it doesn’t like the space in the name; also tried removing the “Volume 1” from the path and/or taking the space out and just calling it “volume1” which is how the name appears sometimes in Synology; also tried the IP address in place of the “NASsynology”...all with no luck) I’m getting an access denied error (telling me to check the ID/password) when using the Synology user-ID/password, as well as when I just skip the ID/password step and just leave it blank. Thanks for any help!
When you select a particular artist in Tidal you can then choose between Top tracks, Albums, EPs and singles, Playlists, Artist radio and Compilations.When selecting Artists radio you are taken to a playlist with no way of starting it. You can only select a track.Clicking the first track does not begin playing everything and adds only that one track to your Sonos playlist.Tidal Artist Radio worked until a few days ago, something has changed.
I have a Sonos 1 at my yoga studio (Play 1, 3 and move at my house). There are many of us using the Play 1 at the studio. All instructors have downloaded the Sonos app. Those that have apple music are not able to get it to join. It keeps saying the they need to renew their service with Apple. (I do not have apple music, is it somehow linking to my account)? Everyone with Spotify is able to link easily. Thanks for any and all support. ~ Melissa

For some reason, I cannot use the ‘My Music’ function of the Apple Music Service anymore. It displays “We’ve run into a problem. Try again.” I have deleted the app on all my devices, reinstalled. I’ve deleted the service and reauthorized. I’ve reset my router. Apple Music works fine. It’s only within the Sonos app that the error occurs. Please help. Family account if that matters, and both users experience this.
If a guest is playing a song on my Sonos and I want to add that song to one of my playlists the S2 controller won't allow me to add it. Or even take me to the album or song info on the S2 controller so I can manually add it. However, I can see in the S2 controller what song is being played. I don't see why this connection couldn't be established so you can continue curating your playlist from songs guests are playing. When I click the (...) It doesn't give any options.
Anyone else having issues with spotify on sonos. Working fine the last couple of days. My kids asked me to play smooth criminal by Alien Ant Farm (their cousin’s name is Annie).Tried with Alexa, she said playing smooth criminal by Alien Ant Farm from Paul’s spotify…..nothing. Tried again, same result.Went into the app on andriod (samsung galaxy s20 ultra), tried to search but no results came from spotify. I went to my spotify app and could play the song but when I attempted to connect to a sonos speaker it just timed out. I tried to re-authorize spotify which said successful but no change. I then dropped spotify from my services and attempted to re-add. Whilst re-adding, sonos reported: “(500) Sorry we are unable to set up your Spotify account at this time.”Just me, or anyone else having issues?Based in Sydney Australia, using spotify premium.
I continually have problems with my Sonos and Amazon Prime Music service. I can play music from my Amazon Prime Music account through the ap and it will play one of my playlists for awhile, then all of a sudden the music will stop. I then get a notification that “…there is missing information with Amazon Music…”.There is nothing wrong with my Amazon Prime Music account, it will play fine off of my kitchen’s Alexa through Sonos while the ap will continue to tell me that there is an issue. I can play music off of the Sirrius station through Sonos with no issues. I can play music off of my computer using the Amazon Prime ap no problem. This issue started a few months back. I have deleted and reinstalled the Amazon Music more than once and it does not help.I spoke with one of the Sonos help personnel earlier today and she told me that the Sonos techs “knew of the issue and that they were working on fixing it”. I have not read that anywhere on the forum. She also directed me to Status
Hi,I own a S2 system (3xFive + Port) with more than 12000 tracks in FLAC & MP3 on 4 folders of a Synology Nas. This year I found out at I couldn't alter my library, without unplugging al the Sonos components & performing the Update Library with just one active component. Also my Port lost, during the night, track of al the music I played the day before. The Fives hadn't had that problem.These BUGs seemed to be resolved with an update from Sonos this month. But yesterdat I noticed that one of my folders are empty, so I can play just 5000 or 6000 from the whole collection. I took me half an hour to get all folders back, because by adding one folder I lost 2 others.Today I found out I miss again a folder!Perhaps this problem is also due to the automatic Library Update during the night, which is, for me, not interesting. Because when I added the folder I lost again 2 others.I'll try to add my folders again & uncheck the autoUpdate function. But that's only a WorkAroundWhat coul
I have an m4a that won’t play, even though it seems to adhere to Sonos’ supported file formats. Here is some more information about the file:Codec: AAC LCSample rate: 32 kHzThe error message I am getting is: “The song is not encoded correctly”. It plays without any issues on other devices.Why doesn’t it work on Sonos?
Hi,I am encountering many problems since the last update 14.6. I use the Spotify service (Android + IOS) with the Sonos S2 app and since the 14.6 update the music cuts itself after a while. I also have trouble listening to music in several rooms and my Sonos ONE SL speakers disconnect themselves. I have to reboot them to reconnect them again. Do some of you have these kinds of problems? I hope that the next update will correct these concerns that are extremely disabling in the use of my SONOS system.
Created a few new Apple Music playlists today and they are not showing up in Sonos. I had now problems with playlists I created a week ago. I have turned library syncing on and off on all devices (as per previous closed thread suggestion) but still no luck. When deleting playlists from Apple Music these changes show up in Sonos but nothing when I add them. Any help is much appreciated.

I have the proper Planet Rock plugin (or whatever it is called!) for Sonos and it seems to work every time on my Roam, but on the lounge speakers, if I don’t play it for a day or so, when I then press play on the Lounge it is never able to play - it comes back with “can’t find Planet Rock station” or something like that.I then have to re-select it from my radio stations on My Sonos and then it plays fine. It does the same thing no matter which app I use - I have it on an iPad Pro and on an Android phone. They both have the same issue.
