I have two Play 1, a sub, and connect. I'm trying to add a playbar but it won't let me add it to the same room with the iphone ap. Any thoughts?

It works the other way around. IE Add the Playbar to the room with your TV and THEN add the Surrounds and Sub to the Playbar room.

It sounds like the Plays and Sub are already in the room you want the Playbar in - Just change the name of the room in the controller.

If you have upgraded sonos to version 7beta, then no iOS devices will let you add new gear. iOS controllers will be in "partial compatibility mode", until full release.
Use android or pc/laptop instead, or opt out of beta and return everything to version 6.

Welcome to the community, JDoodle. If you are unable to add components, it will be down to an issue with the version installed on the controller you are attempting to do this on. Are you running the Beta at the moment? Or are you perhaps using an outdated or incompatible version of iOS? Please see our product guide for the iOS controller for more information. Especially on page 4:
