No Sonos notification, no volume controle outside app or at lock screen.

I’m recently unable to control my Sonos volume from the start- or lockscreen. Only when inside the app itself.
Sonos isn’t in my notifications anymore either..

Every option needed is enabled inside the app. Battery optimisation for Sonos is turned off.
I tried deleting and re-installing the S2 app, without resolution.
Any idea what I can do to resolve this?

Might be helpful to let the community know what sort of device you’re running the controller on. In order to determine what possible solutions are available.

Oh yeah of course.
I’m using a One Plus Nord running Android 10

Hi @severensm, thank you for reaching out. and thanks for assisting @Airgetlam. About your concern, We are aware that notifications are not working on OnePlus devices as expected when using it in the S2 app, and thanks for letting us know. Our engineering team is working to address the issue and it will be addressed in a future software update. The alternative as of the moment is using a non OnePlus device. Rest assured that we are doing our best to improve your experience with the app and Sonos products. I’ll send you a private message once the issue is fixed.

Keep me in the know with the advice above.

Kind regards

I got the same problem as @severensm. It started today. It all worked fine until a couple of hours ago. I'm on oneplus nord as well. And I have made sure everything is as it should be with the app…

Just so you know ;-)

Thank you
