Sonos Roam connected to the MacBook Pro but it doesn't play.

With the new IOS upgrade to Ventura I have had several synchronization problems. One of these is the SONOS ROAM I already forgot the SONOS ROAM on the MacBook, I turned the bluetooth off and on, I did a restart of the MacBook Pro and the SONOS ROAM, I do the new pairing and apparently they are connected but the SONOS ROAM does not play.

Is the Mac/Roam volume level low, or perhaps muted? 

Have you tried pairing the Roam to another device to see if that works? My thoughts are that might at least narrow things down towards which device isn’t working as it should be.

See this link below too, that’s if it looks like it is the MAC/Ventura at fault, but perhaps also Google ‘Ventura Bluetooth problem’ aswell:

I have the same problem.  Here what I am running;

    Macbool Pro 2019.  OS-X Ventura.  


    I have paired and used my Sonos Roam to my phone (Android) and old Macbook Pro 2018, OS-X Catalina. 

    My new Macbook Ventura works with other Bluetooth devices.  But not Roam.

So, it seems like a Ventura → Roam problem.



I have this problem too

It seems that If I select in the Settings » Sound » Output & Input (Sonos Roam Bluetooth) the Sonos Roam will play from the Mac.  But if I select Sonos Roam Airplay… it will not!
