I see the subject of unexpected/unwanted explicit lyrics appearing through Sonos Radio stations has been raised a few times over the years and I was wondering where Sonos stood on the issue and if there are any plans to enable filtering?For some father-daughter bonding today my 5yr old asked me to dance with her so we put the ‘Hit List’ station on and were having a great time (my dancing could do with some filtering but that’s a subject for another thread!) when the song Kiss Me More by Doja Cat came on... A lovely little number but one which got a little fruity as things went on to the point where I couldn’t assume her brain wasn’t picking up on the words and phrases that I don’t think she’s quite ready for just yet so had to mute it until then next track came on (which then just drew more attention to the song we’d just had and I’m sure she was mentally ‘rewinding’ in an attempt to decompose what she’d taken in and work out what all the fuss was about!).Any chance of one day being ab
Until today when I used the Sonos app on iPhone or iPad if I went into BBC sounds and then Selected “My Sounds” I would get 3 options - Bookmarked, Subscribed or Latest. When I access via phone or tablet now when I click “My Sounds” I just get a list of icon images of some of the episodes of podcasts I have subscribed to. The desktop app on iMac is still working as expected. I have raised this with Auntie so hopefully it will get fixed
I had a birthday party at my house yesterday.During the evening people asked me to put on music that was not in my free services choices. (You have to pay to listen to quality music on Sonos), so instead of subscribing again and again I decided to go to my computer and transfer all my music to folders on my smart phone (android galaxy s20 updated).This is where the problem comes in... I open my Sonos app (because nothing works without it) and... it can't even find my music files.Imagine that Sonos lists everything according to its taste and in its own way, so that it is impossible to find each other.So I have 2 choices left according to Sonos APP, either press SONGS FOLDER and everything will play pell-mell or select manualy each song after the other on the thousands of useless folders that Sonos has created for me.I tested on the SONOS PC version and everything works fine but not on the mobile app. But it was too late...(See screenshot) https://ibb.co/CQzrZDFHere is the only way I fou
I've been a big fan of Sonos Radio HD since i started my trial and couldn't bring myself to cancel. It just sounds so great, and the station options are great so far; but I can't figure out how we don't have a Bollywood music station yet, or any Indian music at all, really. This seems like an obvious oversight; it's kind of a low-hanging fruit that would be a big crowd-pleaser. Do we just need to throw suggestions out there? (If this isn't the best forum for station ideas, I'd love to be pointed in the right direction.) On a more heartfelt note, the Metal music selection leaves so very much to be desired for fans of the more Nordic Metal styles. I think you could do quite well with a Swedish Death Metal station, or generally Nordic if you want to catch more content. The metal that is on Sonos Radio so far is just absolutely nothing like what I look for in metal music. I would call it more hard rock than anything, but I know I'm biased on that regard. And that's fine, but if you're look
Hi,I'm trying to access music stored on a USB in my Nvidia Shield but keeps getting "No selections available" I'm trying to update Music index but nothing, I can access it through Plex but not sure what the quality is like with them being FLAC on the USB. Any 😣 would be appreciated
Is the lack of Apple Music lossless support a Sonos Issue (haven’t got to it yet) or an Apple issue (not allowing other providers to access the lossless streams)?I actually think Airplay does sound better, but that is not why I bought Sonos speakers. Thanks
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 was just logged on to my server which has my music library on it and noticed 120 SMB connections from my various Sonos devices to the music share. There are tens of connections from today and each of the last few days. Is this normal? I’ve never noticed it happening before. Thanks Jon.
I tried to find and play internet radio with CD quality on Sonos, but I failed except Radio Paradise. (I tried to add Naim Radio FLAC stream on Tunein and got failure in playing it. ) Is there any radio station of CD or Hi-res audio quality, which can be played on Sonos except Radio Paradise? I don't want to find music and play them. I prefer radio.I prefer music without lyrics like classical music. I think Jazz etc. are fine. If there's no free service, is there a paid service?---- Does Roon music player do this job?---- Sonos Radio isn’t available in my country, but I have questions. Are Sonos Radio HD stations just playlists or on-air? If they are playlists, then do they update their stations frequently? Thanks in advance!
Hello,I’ve read all the similar topics I could find but I can’t get my Music Library to load in Sonos S2 on my Mac Mini running Monterey 12.3.1. I’ve both shared the folders and unshared the folder, changed the privacy settings for Sonos, and looked at my router settings to see if there’s anything there I can change. The router doesn’t have anything listed under USB storage devices, despite the fact I have two drives connected via USB C. If I load the native iTune folder the one song I have in there loads. Unfortunately all my music is sitting on external drives. I’d appreciate any advice you could offer, please.Thank you.
I am a happy user of Deezer’s HiFi tier with Sonos, and have been for several years (started on Deezer Elite back in the day...). I chose the HiFi tier as it *was* the only tier offering FLAC quality (and back in the Elite days, it was the only service that integrated with Sonos).My annual subscription is up for renewal next month and I see that FLAC streaming is now available on the cheaper Premium tier too.So, are there any downsides if I ‘downgrade’ to Premium to save some cash?Note: I’m based in the UK. I know that only the HiFi tier offers “360 Reality Audio” but I’m not interested in that. Also it’s an individual account, so I don’t care about family features.Advice please, from those who know! Thanks.
I am running the arc via an LG tv and using the iphone to control settings(via sonos app) and I just read that tidal atmos tracks were now available on my iphone tidal app so was wondering how to “stream” them to my sonos arc.............1)Firstly I get the atmos symbol showing correctly on my tidal app on the iphone when I look at a atmos track2)I get atmos tracks to play when i use the LG tv's tidal app (I know this because atmos symbol appears on the sonos app on my iphone)3)When I try and play/stream to my sonos setup atmos tracks from my iphone tidal app - I get a few streaming options at the top i) firstly using my internal iphone speaker i get the atmos symbol displaying correctly and atmos is played ok ii)I also have a speaker symbol with my sonos room name - however this seems to play (be capped) at hi-fi quality if I try and stream an atmos track iii)I have an airplay streaming option with my sonos room name and this appears with the atmos symbol but it appears on my sonos ap
For some time now I’ve been experiencing an issue playing one particular Spotify playlist on my Sonos One SL. All playlists/albums/podcasts etc play just fine, but one playlist I have will not play. The only distinguishing feature of this playlist is its size. It has almost 5000 songs. Has anyone else had this issue? When I go to play a song from the playlist I get the message: “Spotify can’t play this right now. If you have the file on your computer you can import it.” I attempted a fix through Spotify who tried a few different things but no luck. So here I am, seeing if it’s a Sonos issue.
I have a curated playlist on my iphone app that I have added to my playlists. I’ve downloaded the entire catalogue and even created an additional playlist (a copy of the original) on the app. None of these are showing up on Sonos. I searched for the curated list on Sonos, and it showed up in the search. However, when I clicked on the list it was empty.Any suggestions? I’ve seen old threads talking about the difference between iTunes and Apple Music, but surely that silliness has been solved with Sonos after two years.
I have all my music stored locally on my iPad for when I travel. I have a mobile router WiFi that I use in the van for network and internet. My phone, iPad and 2 Sonos Roams are connected to this network. I can use the iPad Music app and stream music from it to the Roams via Airplay, but I notice that when I am doing this and I open the Sonos app, it shows what’s playing and let’s me control volume, EQ settings, pause etc. But when I go to look for another album etc, I have to go back to the iPad Music app. Is there a way to add the music stored locally on the app directly to the Sonos app? I could then utilise the Sonos app via the network, rather than Airplay and have full control (using Airplay, I can’t adjust volume separately for each speaker etc.). I tried adding a source from Music Library settings in Sonos app, but it wants a network path that I have no idea what to put there for access to the iPad. Thanks for any advice.BTW, those little Roam speakers are sensational, the best
