TuneIn is no longer available on Sonos. Only Sonos Radio and Spotify. No longer can I use my Sonos to listen to my favorite local and regional radio stations. It’s a good thing I still have my Bose Radio. And my Sonos will end up on the closet shelf, unused. Maybe I can sell it on ebay.
Hello,When using my spotify on Sonos, my music keeps skipping tracks or stopping completely. The strange thing is, if my wife plays the same spotify account on Sonos from her phone, no issue. Only when i press “play” on my phone does the issue occur. If i use “Sonos radio” from my phone, no issue. We have two spotify accounts connected and I have tried toggling between both from my sonos app on my phone without luck.Given the information above, i would think to rule out internet speed/connectivity (since everything works fine on her phone) and also any spotify account issues (since these also work fine from her phone). Thoughts?
Evening folks …. this really is Sonos development week for me. Thanks to all those helping me sort nearly half a dozen issues this week. And some days to go yet 😀Just firing up my Roam to check all well for a trip next week. Playback of music sources all seem fine (Amazon / Tidal) and also Audible. But TuneIn only allows selected channels to play best I can see.BBC World is fine, Kerrang is fine. But BBC Radio 4 or Radio Shropshire for example, shows the channel graphic but zero audio output?Checked it’s up to date but otherwise I’m at a bit of a loss as to why. Not a frequent radio users and indeed only added the TuneIn service to the app yesterday.Grateful for any direction why mainstream channels so not appear to be working.Plan was to take this for a lengthy trip and run it off mobile. I was only testing Norton VPN to see if that was working ok and then found this one.EDIT: Just continuing to look at this and it turns out it’s not just the Roam but all my Sonos devices not seeing
I have audio recordings of children’s books I’ve made for my kids. I have it set up so I can stream them from my Drobo 5N2 media server. This works well for things like Plex on my smart TV, but I am having issues with streaming audio to Sonos. It works well most of the time, but then will suddenly skip the current track and start playing the next one. I have confirmed that it is inconsistent whether a given track is skipped, and there doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with the media files.Here is my diagnostic number: 783586731. The Play:1 device is called “Playroom” that has been skipping the tracks.Thank you.
While you can launch lossless music via the Sonos app (ie Amazon Music Unlimited), I’ve yet to see a Voice Assistant be able to do this yet (ie Alexa plays lower quality non-lossless music from Amazon Music Unlimited). I even thought Sonos Voice would solve this issue but it doesn’t. Has this been resolved yet in the last couple of months or so (on any combination of Voice Assistant and Music Service)?
I’m looking to add Amazon music to my browser on Sonos play1. When I go to the list of music providers through the services & voice tab it brings up a list of providers with Apple Music being at the top, yet Amazon music isn’t there to select (I’ve scrolled through & tried searching for it), neither is Spotify for that matter. Does anyone know how to resolve this as I only pay subscription to Amazon music. I’m in the UK so it should be there shouldn’t it?
Hi, sorry for the noob question... totally new to Sonos (yesterday) and trying to get everything sorted in the app.I have a lot of tracks in playlists in my YT library that I now want to stream on Sonos. I've set up all my other streaming services successfully...but not YT.I've linked and authorized through Sonos app and YT, but when I access YT in the Sonos app I get the message 'Unable to browse music'.I've deleted and started again...no difference.I've re-authorized...no difference.Any suggestions for a fix before I ditch the Sonos app (on day 2 😂!) and buy a Bluetooth receiver.Many thanksRob
I am trying to figure out a way to get a Spotify playlist by an artist to show up in the native Sonos app so I don’t have to play it from the Spotify’s app. Absolutely driving me insane. Accidentally did it once but have no idea how I actually did it. I am an Apple Music guy so this is foreign. I have a Spotify free account. Went on the Spotify app and added the playlists to my library. They do not show up anywhere in the Spotify account on my Sonos app. It’s just generic Spotify generated crap. Adding it to Profile does nothing. I can Airplay it to the speakers and then it shows up as Recently Played in Sonos under Spotify. From there I have to add it in as Sonos Favorites and finally have access to it. That is about 4 steps to long. Any way to clean this up would be helpful.
I have a Sonos One Speaker that has been hooked up to my home internet since 2015. It has worked just fine until recently -- when I opened my Apple Music account and got the message:“Your Apple Music account needs to be Reauthorized” I click “OK”, and get: “Your Apple ID xxxxx will be used to reauthorize account” The ID is correct, so I click OK.After a few seconds, a screen pops up ( with bells and banners...) and the text says: “Your Apple Music Account has been Reauthorized” SO...I click the “DONE” button at the bottom and get the message:“Unable to browse Music...” I click out of that screen and get:“Your Apple Music Account Needs to be Reauthorized” AARRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!I could play that loop many times with no good outcome...Everything is up to date, speaker, sonos software, computer, etc.Here’s what hasn’t worked so far: 1) Turning Router off and on (many times) 2) Rebooting the Speaker. 3) Setting it all up again from the beginning, trying BOTH an iPhone and an Android.
Hi,I’m implementing my own SOAP Webservice based on the provided WSDL. At the provided WSDL the trailing slash is replaced by a # before the action.Ex.: http://www.sonos.com/Services/1.1#searchAt my implementation the action URL si the followingEx.: http://www.sonos.com/Services/1.1/search So the calls to my SOAP Webservice fail with the following error:System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: Server did not recognize the value of HTTP Header SOAPAction: http://www.sonos.com/Services/1.1#search. I’ve already added my custom music service to the device at the APP but I get no calls to the API My Web Service is implemented with C# ASMX
I listened to Audible books for many years on my Sonos system. That was Audible.com. I now use Audible.co.uk. I find and begin the books easily. My problem is that the system doesn’t save my place. At first, I noticed it would go back to an earlier chapter. Now, it doesn’t even do that. Every time I come back to a book I have to start from the beginning and jump from chapter to chapter until I get to where I left off. All this assumes I neatly finish listening at the end of a chapter. Otherwise, it is chaos.I spoke to Audible.co.uk help. Of course, they said it was nothing to do with their books. I needed to speak to Sonos. I told them that I had no problem listening to books from Audible.com. They were not impressed.I don’t see anyone else with this exact problem. Anyone have any idea what might be happening? I tried to reinstall Sonos. No difference. I’m using S2.
So far I like my Sonos speakers but find it odd that for something so expensive, it doesn’t support what I consider basic functionality. Since Sonos supports TuneIn, it seems to me it should be able to let me login to my TuneIn account so I can play the music I have subscribed to. I don’t want to subscribe to the Sonos radio stream. My workaround is to stream TuneIn to my Google Cast with TV which is connected to my Arc.Looking through the community archives, it seems there’s a lot of people that want this but Sonos isn’t interested.
Hi,I have been using Deezer for years but want to switch. Currently I can save to a Deezer playlist using the sonos app - so it’s then possible to access the playlist later in the car etc - rather than making sonos playlists which are only good at home. This function is not possible with Apple Music so a deal breaker for me as seems a fundamental function! Does anyone know what music streaming services I can save playlists to whilst listening/using sonos app?tia
There have been a variety of posts in the community before with people having consistent issues with Stingray Music over the years. For those who loved the music service but hated the repeated issues with it, thus eventually giving up on them (like I did), I’d highly recommend that you add the Stingray Music service back again and give them another try. I’ve been trying them for the past couple of weeks and the service has been super rock solid, better than they have ever been in the past. Seems like someone finally got serious on their end and fixed all of their backend incompatibility issues with Sonos.
