Is this still an issue? Sonos should please figure out a way to play a recently added playlist continuously without splitting them up by albums, where we have to continuously go on the phone and pick the next song. This is quite trivial and seems like should be a simple fix. If the Playbar I bought 3 months ago can’t update to have Airplay then the least they could do is make it possible to play a playlist continuously...Has anyone figured this out yet? Thanks!
So I have been using the free version of Spotify with Sonos for some time, and decided to go for Spotify premium. Before I upgraded I tested that Spotify app as a free user, and was happy with the ability to control/cast to Sonos directly from the app. But after upgrading to premium it started failing. Has anyone experienced something similar? Controlling Sonos from Spotify:Shortly after upgrade to a family plan I was no longer able to successfully cast to Sonos, my devices will show up, but there is either just silence (while the app shows it is playing), or simply a failure to connect. After a connection failure the Sonos speaker will (strangely enough) start playing whatever was the last music/service it played. Weird. Sonos devices (Play 1 and Move) will however reliably show up in the connect list. This behaviour is consistent from both Android app (tested from two devices) and from the PC app. I have removed the Spotify service and reinstalled in the Sonos app several times. Have
HiI have about 2500 MP3 files in my music library.When I start playing, everything is fine - but then I fx. watch some tv, when I again want to hear music and start playing the music library playlist it starts from number 1 again. Isn’t there a way that Sonos remember the last song played and can continue from there???It’s pretty stupid to listen to the same 10-20 songs again and again :)I know that I, via the app, can scroll down to the last played song or shuffle the songs. But I mainly use Google assistant voice commands to start and stop playing music.
Since recent Stitcher and asonos app updates for iOS equipment, both my iPhone 8 and iPad 2…. when I bring up stitcher to play podcasts on sonos, it lists all my podcasts…. Under shows… but no longer has them grouped like they are in the stitcher app. So this means I have to scroll thru all my various podcasts to find what I’m looking for.before these app updates, the groupings came over int9 Sonos…. making it so much easier to find the podcast im looking for.sure would be nice 9f we could get these groupings back!
For some reason just recently using the Amazon music service within the Sonos app my Amazon Music Albums and Playlists recommended for me are all indian music, which I have never listened to before ever. any ideas what’s happened please.

Hi, Sonos has suddenly started skipping all my tidal playlists tracks after more than a year and a half of working perfectly. I don’t believe anything in my system or Tidal has knowingly been changed. I don’t have any other instances of Tidal playing in the household. I have good download speed of circa 30Mb/s. Strangely if I open Tidal direct on my device I can play the same playlist perfectly to Sonos, I just can’t get Tidal to play from Sonos. Other music services play and I can play radio stations. My wife has the Sonos app on her phone and has the same issue. She doesn’t use the Tidal app. Any ideas? Thank you.
I have my Apple Music account linked to Sonos. When I browse “My Music” in the Sonos app, I can see all the albums that I have downloaded on my phone, but some (or in some cases all) of the songs are grey’d out. When I look at the same album on the Apple Music app, the songs are all available / not grey’d out. Any ideas / advice, please?
When I plug my USB into my TV (Sony Bravia A8 OLED), the arc does not play the audio files for movies, even though they are Dolby Atmos, it switches to the TV audio automatically, even though the settings say its playing through the speakers? Does the Sonos Arc not support USB files playing through the TV?
Scrobbling to Last.fm from my Sonos system has been working flawlessly since I set it up a year ago, until just a couple days ago. My first instinct was to try and disconnect/re-connect Last.fm from within the Sonos app, but before I did that I noticed Last.fm wasn’t in the list of available services (both in the PC and iOS Sonos apps) to add. I still see my Last.fm account as one of the active services running but I’m hesitant to remove it since there doesn’t appear to be a way to re-add it.Has something changed? Eric
I’ve been using PLEX Media Server (PMS) running on a Synology Diskstation to serve up local music files to the household SONOS system. It has been working flawlessly until the last couple of days. Unfortunately, both the NAS software (including Disk Station Manager, v: 6.2.4-25556) and PMS (v220.127.116.1128) were updated during this time, so I’m not sure where the issue started, but this is what I’ve been able to establish: PMS will play any mp3 file via either the Android and Windows desktop SONOS controllers (S2). PMS fails to serve up almost all 16bit 44.1kHz flac files to SONOS and reports “Unable to play - the connection to Plex was lost.” This error is reported in both Android and Windows SONOS controllers. I have found only 2 flac files that will play and I can see in the PMS dashboard that they are being played as flac (stereo) at 834Kpbs and 941Kbps, respectively. However, all other tracks on the same album fail to play. I have one album that is hi-res flac and it plays fine b
HI, I have issues connecting to Tunein, mostly where I am trying to listen to previous episodes (live radio seems to work OK - I mostly listen to BBC service). Sometimes when ‘listen again” playback does work, it will stop mid program and then I get the “Unable to play...unable to connect”. I can always go to live radio at that point and it works 100% of the time - no connection issues. I have removed and reinstalled the Tunein service, rebooted devices etc. I created a diagnostic report 1122795564. Many thanks for your help
After Stitcher eliminated my favorites playlist, I started looking for an alternative podcast platform to use between Sonos, Windows and Android. I hoped to try Pocket Casts Plus under their free trial period, but when I try to add the service to either my S1 or S2 system, I authorize my account via the web page and it says ‘success’, but when I return to the ‘Add a Service’ dialog in the app, it says ‘Account not found. Unable to add Pocket Casts account.’
Hello!I have half a dozen playlists, originally made in iTunes, that disappeared when we transferred the music library onto a separate storage unit (NAS).The funny thing is that Sonos still sees them and we can play them by choosing them in ‘imported playlists’. The NAS music library is the only source for the Sonos, and yet we cannot find these playlists on the NAS ourselves!What I really want to do is to find these playlists on the NAS, so that I can re-import them back into iTunes.Can someone clever please point me in the right direction, all my online searches on this topic only throw up irrelevant results for this situation!Thanks in advance!
I have asked before and even been pinned to supposed answers but they seem to be above my pay grade. I cannot seem to get my Sonos system to update with new Playlists or all my playlists. I have updated the music index. This seems to be something that should be a simple update. Can anyone walk me through it in layman’s terms?
For some time, I have been unable to play ‘iTunes’ etc. over Sonos. I get the error ‘The computer ***** refused to let Sonos connect to it. The Apple firewall is turned off and I have tried diasblib the Norton firewall but I still get the same error. There are some apps that can run Malware scans but AFAIK they are not active firewalls.I hope someone can point me in the right direction for solving this.Paul Bedwell
After upgrading my Mac Pro to Big Sur my music library via iTunes won’t play. When I try to update music library the system tells me it can’t locate my hard drive (on which Sonos is installed!). I updated Sonos which didn’t fix it. Can’t add a new path as cannot connect to hard drive. A new path recently appeared showing my library but it has now disappeared again!
Normal Apple Music account, seems to have stopped letting me play different music in different rooms
Hi folks Apologies if this been answered already or if it’s a daft question. I have noticed this happening in the last year or so. When I try to play different music in 2 different rooms, one room will stop playing after 1 song while the other room will continue. I pay for just the bog standard Apple Music (9.99 a month). Have Apple stopped Sonos from being able to play separate albums in separate rooms? It certainly worked fine when I first purchased the system.Any help appreciated and apologies for wasting anyone’s time, first post here! Thanks
I have listened to radio stations of YLE in Finland ( under myTuner). Could do this 20th in the morning,but late in the afternoon these stopped to work. What has happened? Some other local stations as well as the Swedish radio work normally.
Hi, noticed i cannot play any mytuner radiostations any longer on sonos. Sonos app on mobile says cannot play radio station directly when selecting a mytuner radio channel. I can still play all the streams directly in my mytuner app on mobile, so it must be a sonos problem. I can start other radio stations on Sonos if i choose streams from e.g tunein or radioplay provider instead of mytuner.Any ideas on what could be wrong?Have a sonos symfonisk.
