My Sonos Move cuts out every 5-10 minutes when using Bluetooth

Hi there,

I bought the Sonos Move speaker primarily to use as a bluetooth speaker but I often have problems with it, especially when using Windows or Android devices. For some reason it doesnt happen as often with Apple devices.

Basically the audio will cut out briefly for about half a second, and this happens at regular intervals of around 5-10 minutes. 

Can anyone help me with this? Is the speaker faulty or is there something that I’m not doing right?


Any advice would be much appreciated. This is otherwise a great speaker.

Hi @danieljohn, welcome to the community.


Is there a particular audio source that this occurs more frequently with (i.e. YouTube, Disney+ etc.)? 

It doesn’t sound like the Move is faulty to me, but we may be able to take a closer look at what’s going on inside the speaker through diagnostics.


I suggest the following:

Many thanks for your advice James. I’ll do just what you recommended and see what your team says the next time this problem arises.
