AirPlay doesn’t work, or takes forever to start anything. App doesn’t work spewing “can’t connect” “error” and other BS messages.
Everything was fine with the older app. My setup has literally not change, except for this crap new app. Now I’m using my $100 Nokia speaker, because my $5000 Sonos setup is ******* unreachable.
And do not blame this on the “network” or “router” or “user”: I’ve been running a tight performant network for the last 5 years and it only improved in these Covid times.
FIX. THE. APP!

Happy to report back.
No DHCP necessary. No changes to router/network necessary.
To solve problem 1(AirPlay): hard reboot speakers. Let them join the network 1 by 1, so that they show up in the app one by one(no race conditions, please!)
To solve problem 2(Spotify): got to Spotify account website. Click Apps(not available in the app itself). Deauthorise Sonos. If you open Spotify app - you’ll still see your speakers: do not pay attention. Open Sonos app instead and and follow the process to re-authorise. Restart both apps. Spotify works now.
