Are there plans to get a widget for controlling the most used speakers in your home? I would love to be able to turn up and down the volume on my playbar from the home screen.

Yes pls, I second that. Painful having to unlock phone, locate the Sonos App, select the correct room and change volume. Having a iOS widget with volume up and down for the active room would be fantastic. This would make up for the slow and clunkyness of the S2 app.

It would be great if it also allowed for adding/removing speakers (check and uncheck) from currently playing audio.

Really hard to believe it's still not there, after all these years 😔

It’d be amazing if the Night Mode toggle could be added into the widget too please

This would indeed be a game changer! This should have been ready for iOS 14 in September. Does Sonos not pay attention to WWDC??

Apple dropped iOS 14 on devs without notice. Unprecedented. Spotify only just added a widget to their app in the last week.

Hoping this gets implemented in the next update, s2 not really bought anything new worth noting for me yet. +1 for this.

Exactly what I was searching on this forum!

Upvote for this idea !

+1000 to this. I love my Sonos but I really wonder sometimes why the app (which should be a top priority) often lacks key features. Prioritize making the best iOS experience as humanly possible.

@Simon B Hi, any update on this being implemented? IOS 14 been out for a while now and very surprised Sonos haven’t added this to the app, been a couple of updates since. This is a very requested feature by users.

Thank you

I’d also love this!

However, for folk requesting interactive controls for things like volume, iOS 14 doesn’t currently allow for this, widgets can only display information, and link to particular points of the app (opening a specific task in a task manager, for example, not completing it within the widget).

Hopefully Apple will open up this level of functionality at some stage, but I would’ve get your hopes up until iOS 15 or after...
