I know the Roam has Battery Saver and Wifi Power Saver, but it should have the ability to choose to complete power it off after lets say 30min.If i power it off and keep it in the charger stand, it will indicate on Sonos app that it is off and not response, while it still charges to full and stay off.I dont need it to be “online” all the time like the rest of my Sonos One system, and it should have a feature like that, to also save the battery in the long run, and not force me to have to remember to turn it completely off.
how to stop sonos move from automatically connecting and playing content im not even watching or listening to?
When i put my sonos move on the charging base it will automatically connect to content on my phone that i wasn’t even listening to or watching and suddenly it is blaring in my house. OMG is that irritating!! I NEVER want auto play, period. Can they not add a setting to prevent that from happening regardless of what app is causing it to start?? That was a rhetorical question, obviously Sonos could do that. Is there some way of accomplishing what i’m asking about? Please help!
Big Sonos fanboy me, got loads of them all over the house. Bought a Roam for outside and in the bathroom. Utter UTTER S***E in every single way you can think of. S***e on/off/Bluetooth button and s***e indicator lights and s***e sound and S***E connecting issues. Utter UTTER S***E! Had it well over a year and hate the f*****g thing with a passion. Did I mention it’s utter s***e because that’s what it is. Moderator Note: Modified in accordance with the Community Code of Conduct.
I own 2 homes with a Sonos system in each home. I have recently purchased a roam speaker and connected it to the Sonos system in 1 home. Can I take this same speaker to the second home and connect it to that network without deleting the connection to the network in home number 1?
Hi there,I did search before I posted but never noticed a solution to my specific question I have a multi room setup at home with 7 Sonos devices all using S1.I use a Move as part of that system mainly for my hot tub but it is of course still part of the multi room system.This weekend however I would like to take the Move away from home to use in a motorhome at an event mainly to listen to the events local FM radio which might also be found being streamed and maybe Amazon Music or music from my iPhone.I have an electrical hookup on the pitch but if that fails I can of course use the 230v supply through an integral inverter.The motorhome does not have its own router and there is no Wi-Fi on site AFAIK. The only Internet access would be from my mobile phone but that depends on the coverage in the middle of a field and the contention that you usually see at an event.How best would I use the Move under these circumstances?Would I toggle it to Bluetooth, pair it to my iPhone and just use it
I have two roam speakers in a single room as a stereo pair separated by about 4 ft on top of a TV stand. Wi-Fi router is in the adjacent room about 10 ft away. Why does one Roam always stay connected to Wi-Fi, and the other always disconnects? I’m tired of having to power cycle it every time I want to listen to them.
I have had a Sonos Roam for a little over a year and a half now… It’s without a doubt the most dysfunctional, glitchy, defective speaker I have ever used… I have multiple HomePods and HomePod minis and several Sonos products that work flawlessly but the Roam stutters across multiple Wi-Fi networks and often has difficulty connecting to Bluetooth…but the biggest problem is the transition from one to the other. I have reset the device literally dozens of times and had to forget and re establish the Bluetooth connection and it will work for a day or two and crap out again. This is clearly a well-known problem and I have tried a multitude of fixes that I have researched on these forums and nothing works. It simply is not worth the trouble.
The Sonos Roam is constantly dropping from my home PC and iPhone. Yes, it’s set up properly via wifi with the Sonos app. Yes, I follow the instructions on the Sonos site (incl. factory reset). Yes, it’s fully charged. Etc, etc. I even get it to work sometimes (for several consecutive days)...until it doesn’t (dropping randomly with me doing absolutely nothing).I have looked in several Sonos community threads to investigate and a lot of feedback is not helpful (things I already did repeatedly) and usually condescending (the equivalent of “try ctrl-alt-del you dolt”).My gripes -Why does my Roam keep dropping randomly when using Bluetooth (on my phone or PC) - Actually, don’t answer this - I give up. Why does the Roam not have a Bluetooth button if it is intended to be primarily a Bluetooth device (using the on/off button to pair the device is an idiotic design flaw in my view)? Why do I need to link it with my wifi to get it started in any case (few if any other Bluetooth-enabled speaker
I am a long-time Sonos user and I recently bought a Sonos Roam. I am disappointed that the basic thing about having a dual orientation USB-C charging port was not implemented: the device charges only if a USB-C to USB-C cable is plugged in on the Roam’s end in one orientation, but not the other. I tried a few cables and a few chargers and concluded that it was the Sonos Roam’s fault. Considering that Sonos is a premium brand, I wonder why this wasn’t implemented.Sure, the included USB-A to USB-C cable works both ways, but the world is moving towards USB-C only, so this design is a missed opportunity.
I’ve expanded my Sonos system with a Roam SL, and when at home on the wifi, that all works well. When on a remote, fairly frequently visited, location I was hoping to make use of:Roam SL Iphone S2 with playlists and servicesbasically I was hoping to BT pair the Roam SL with my phone on which I have S2, and from S2 control the Roam SL, and play my family’s all playlists stored on Sonos/S2. But so far S2 looks empty/inaccessible as of content. Am I dreaming up this possibility, or am I just not setting it up correctly?
I am considering buying a few Move speakers to use both indoors and outdoors depending on how I am entertaining. The idea is to put one Move for background music in each of the kitchen, dining room, and study. Then, if I want to entertain in the backyard, I’ll place all three Moves outdoors. (I have a large backyard, so three Moves will not be overkill.) I do not plan on creating stereo pairs inside or out. My backyard has strong WiFi coverage. Will I run into any issues (e.g. audio syncing) if the Moves are not assigned to the same room when using together outside within the same area? I know I can group rooms to make controlling them easier. I am asking about audio quality. I expect it will be fine, but wanted to check.
If you have Wi-Fi connection can you connect pair of roams in stereo mode with Bluetooth source like Samsung freestyle projector? And since roams need to be in bt mode to recive signal from projector that doesn’t unable em to work in Wi-Fi as condition for stereo mode? Thx in adv
At the moment I have to hold the power button down for a few seconds to power it off. Sometimes this doesn’t work and although I don’t let go of the button it thinks I have. So today it took 5 attempts before the speaker powered down.I don’t use the feature where it will shut itself off and go into sleep after being idle for a while because, annoyingly for my use case, it powers itself back up again when I open the Sonos app. This is not what I require because the Roam is only used occassionally in the bathroom. If there was an option to not do this then I would use this method.Given the above, I would like to be able to power off completely using either the app or a voice command. I know I probably need to create a request but I doubt they will do anything if only one person requires it!!
I am beyond done with my Sonos Roam. It has always had issues connecting and staying connected to my network. I have experienced the same issue with Bluetooth. Every month or so I try it again but to no avail. I will step through the troubleshooting process – restarting the device and ultimately my router. Nothing works these days. It shows up in my Sonos app as not connected, and after all the troubleshooting I’m told to try again another time.I spent hours on the phone with Sonos support early on. They admitted this is a known problem that they are working to fix. It’s been close to a year and still no progress. I could not return or exchange it because I got it from Best Buy and discovered it’s uselessness after the return window. IMO, Sonos should not be selling defective products period. I very rarely write reviews but felt compelled to do so in an effort to warn others. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!
This has to be the dumbest question around here, but here goes:When buying a blue / red / green Roam, what color is the USB cable included? I’ve done the research and genuinely couldn’t find that info.A bit silly but I do want my charger to match the cable, otherwise it’s ugly.
I only have the Roam speaker. Trying to download the app and need specific app name in IOS app store. I just plan to use the Roam while playing golf, so need a simple app. Or, do I need a Sonos app at all? have no subscriptions and don’t plan any. What is simplest way to stream music from my iPhone?
Obviously got a Roam today and got to work for about 10 mins and then quickly descended to sadness and cannot wait until tomorrow to return this defective piece of garbage. wifi workedbt workedthen sudden horrendous noise (like cd skipping but louder).hard shutdownreconnect noise came backrepeat shutdownFactory resetagain reconnectedNothing workednow the current state is the roam it is not powering up at all even after charging most of the day. Just an amber light that fades out when holding the power button unplugged.plugged in it does nothing not even the amber light.I calling this product an epic fail and returning ASAP.too bad I like the other Sonos stuff we have…..the controller software sucks but that’s another time.
