Hi
I just bough a Sonos One.
I just have a question regarding airplay and lock screen control on iPhone.

Is it possible to control my current Sonos speaker (play 1) through the lock screen on my iPhone once I install my Sonos One which supports airplay 2?

Or would Airplay 2 also make the missing lock screen control problem?

Thanks

Hi Sonosatmyhome,

Welcome to the community. The software is what determines lock screen functionality. Adding a Sonos One won't change the lock screen control options. If you have any non-Sonos AirPlay devices on your network, the lock screen controls won't be available in the Sonos app. You can disable AirPlay on non-Sonos devices in your home to keep the controls working, even while using AirPlay on a Sonos One.
