I just purchased the 2-pack Sonos Play:1 speakers at Costco.  Set up no problem, connected to home wifi no problem.  But now that I trying to play music stored on my phone through the speakers there is no obvious way to do this.  Please help!

You can’t do that from an iPhone, only an Android phone using a feature called “On this device”. If you’re on IOS you’ll need to set up a music library and stream from that.

thank you that’s what I was afraid of based on everything else I’ve read.  I was just hoping I was wrong.

You need a Sonos One for Airplay2 support. It comes in the basic One guise (with voice control) or One SL (cheaper, without voice control).

It’s worth double checking whether your two pack was PLAY:1s orSonos Ones, too.
