Music Services and SonosF.A.Q.
Hi everyone!This article will be focusing on Music Services available within the Sonos app - if you have any further questions on this subject, feel free to post a reply, and we’ll update the article What Music Services are available on Sonos? You can find here a full list of Music Services on Sonos - it’s worth noting however that not all music services are available in all regions, you can check where any given service is available to be added to Sonos by clicking the link for that music service.If you should have access to a music service, but it doesn’t show up in the list when adding a music service , then we recommend double checking that you have the correct location set on your Sonos Profile, and then performing a manual check for updates from the Sonos App - this will update the list of available Music Services in the app. What content is available via Music Services? Not all music services offer the same selection of content, and this may even change within the same service
As Sonos don’t seem to want to, lets try and consolidate the TuneIn UK problem into one master thread.What we know: starting last Thursday, TuneIn in the UK started blocking all foreign radio stations. They did this because of a lawsuit they lost in November 2019.Some have also claimed that Sonos Radio is also affected.The known work-arounds are:Add the direct streaming url of the station to the Sonos system (only available to PC and Mac users detailed here Try a different radio station aggregator (eg radio.com)
“Unable to browse music” error for last 2 days when clicking on Calm music service in app. I’ve tried reauthorizing, remove and readd service, reinstall sonos app. All same result. Not seeing anything new on here so…anyone else? Submitting a support bundle if no one else is seeing. I miss twitter support for sonos that would have made this much easier to troubleshoot. thanks
When you select a particular artist in Tidal you can then choose between Top tracks, Albums, EPs and singles, Playlists, Artist radio and Compilations.When selecting Artists radio you are taken to a playlist with no way of starting it. You can only select a track.Clicking the first track does not begin playing everything and adds only that one track to your Sonos playlist.Tidal Artist Radio worked until a few days ago, something has changed.
I was getting this error from time to time, but now I'm getting it on 3/4 of songs... Seems random, as sometimes a song that was working fine would refuse to play and start showing this error (or vice versa). My music source is YouTube Music. I've tried rebooting the speaker, reinstalling te app, rebooting the Wi-Fi router, etc. Also tried using an ethernet cable instead of Wi-Fi. Nothing seems to work. Diagnostic number : 1167656549Screenshot :Thanks in advance!
I am receiving periodically messages when I try to access Amazon Music through my Sonos system that I need to go to Amazon.music.com and supply missing information. I go to the website and there is absolutely no missing information. I delete and install Amazon music in my music services and it usually works, but the next day I can not access Amazon Music. Is this a system issue?
After years paying for Spotify, and having flirted with Apple Music for years as well, and abjuring Pandora, I’ve finally decided that YouTube Music does by far the best job of curating songs for me based on just a little bit of criteria. In short, YouTube Music is the coolest. And yet as has been well noted by other commenters, Sonos completely sharts the bed when it comes to software integration with YTM. Don’t know about others but I can get mine to do a sum total of zero functioning, as far as YTM is concerned. It honestly feels to me like there was some spat between programmers or companies that resulted in a what is essentially a big eff you from one to the other, or a detente perhaps, where someone pissed someone off or had a huge ideological difference of opinion, words were said and then everyone walked away from the conference room table, and left to sit there what is basically a 1/8th developed integration option that does nothing but get people angry. How else can you expl
Good afternoon, I was using SONOS fine yesterdays and then today I am getting the message that sonos is unable to locate the server. I have contacted Apple (IMAC) and then have gone through all troubleshooting. This is a frequent problem and I am getting fed up with the inconsistency of use.
I recently set up a Sonos system, and Spotify is the only service I’ve connected. I want to be able to play songs marked as “explicit” through Sonos, but they’re grayed out. It seems like this has to either be a Spotify thing or a Sonos thing, but… I’ve never filtered explicit content in Spotify, but I checked my Spotify settings just in case, and “Allow explicit content” is indeed enabled I found “Content Filters” in the Sonos settings, but “Filter Explicit Content” is grayed out and says “Not supported” Any idea what might be going on? I haven’t found an answer on the forums yet. Thanks!
Not sure if anyone else is experiencing issues with Sonos Music Library and the Synology NAS becoming unresponsive or very sluggish, or with random speakers disappearing from the S2 app. I recently enabled the Music Library feature in Sonos (before the 13.4.1 update in Dec 2021 which introduced SMB3 support). At that time, I configured my Synology NAS to use SMB1 to allow the connection to work. I was on DSM Version: 7.0.1-42218 and running S2 13.3.2. Somewhere around 11/25/21, my Synology started going offline and become unresponsive. I was running a DS1517+ with 2GB of RAM and noticed that the SMB process was eating a lot more RAM than usual. Also, started seeing thousands of connections from the Sonos speakers, multiple times for each speaker. My Sonos updated to 13.4, but the issue still remained.I opened a case with Synology and they determined that the Sonos speakers were opening hundreds of connections per speaker and leaving the connections open. This was slowly draining the me
Sonos vil ikke spille noen radiokanaler har 1 generasjon Sonos med Play1 og Play5. Styrer Sonis med sonos-app S1 for 4 dager siden sluttet Nrk radioen å virke på alle sonos høyttalerne.

I just added Pocketcasts as a music service within Sonos. I subscribe to a couple of podcasts and they show up when I navigate to Pocketcasts via the music service menu. But those podcasts don’t appear when I use the Sonos search functionality. Sonos searches for podcasts within my other music services (Amazon, Stitcher etc) but doesn’t show any results for Pocketcasts. I’ve tried removing and re-adding Pocketcasts. Is this a known issue?
Added YouTube Music to the app and it says "No Selections Available". Why? My YT account is fine and verified twice now.
So I have installed Sonos app twice now. Setting up my new Move took over an hour because the app refused to believe my router was actually functioning (another story, but relevant as the app gives misleading info a lot). Anyway, then I go onto adding services and all goes well until my paid YouTube Music account is added. I added it twice (using the whole code paste in and authorizing my Google account) and it went through each time. YouTube was successfully added. But whenever I go into YouTube Music from Sonos, it say “No Selections are Available”. Like why??????? I go onto Youtube and verify I have hundreds of playlists. All my other services work. And before someone answers from a Customer Service script and tells me to reinstall everything and reboot my router...no. Just no. I want actual advice about why Sonos is not reaching youTube. Is there a setting in YouTube or is the app just that flawed where I can look forward to playing YouTube via Bluetooth only? This is wh
KQED radio keeps dropping out. No other stream is doing this. At first, I rebooted my speakers. Rebooted my computer. Restarted my phone. Deleted the app. and reinstalled them. If I switch from KQED to any other stream, the dropping out stops. I’m concluding that it’s not on my end. Is there anyone else experiencing this KQED streaming issue?
I finally found a work around for playing music on my android phone on Sonos speakers. I was dissatisfied with using the Sonos app because: 1) Sonos does not sort folders or artists alphabetically (making it extremely difficult to locate a particular artist among 600+); and 2) the Sonos equalizer is too simple (one knob for bass - one knob for treble). The solution is remarkably simple: install the BubbleUPNP and cast your favorite android mp3 player app, podcast app, or other android audio stream. I have seen numerous forum inquiries about this issue, but none of the responses have descibed this simple solution. I am so delighted that I can now play music from my phone to Sonos speakers with total ease.
We are writing summer 2019 and still Sonos only supports SMB version 1 for the Music Library share. [b]This is not acceptable.[/b] A file share running SMB1 is extremely vulnerable to all the variants of cryptolocker virus that exists today. File share servers (NAS, Windows, Apple OS) can only support one version of SMB - so you cannot from the same box have one file share (for Sonos) using SMB1 and the other file shares using SMB2 or SMB3. This way Sonos puts each and every file share at serious risc - just because they don’t update their file share protocol to comply with this century. And for the record - the “solution” through PLEX is not a solution. Unstable at best.
Created a few new Apple Music playlists today and they are not showing up in Sonos. I had now problems with playlists I created a week ago. I have turned library syncing on and off on all devices (as per previous closed thread suggestion) but still no luck. When deleting playlists from Apple Music these changes show up in Sonos but nothing when I add them. Any help is much appreciated.
