Have a newer Sonos and having trouble adding play 3 to my room

I have a new Sonos with just 2 Play 1 speakers and play bar and boost and sub existing. Set up was great with initial equipment. Today I got 2 new Play 3s. I'm having trouble with adding the play 3 to my room. My room is listed as Living Room. I used the app to add the new Play 3 but living room wasn't a choice, just living room 2. So I picked it but I think Sonos thinks my Play 3 is in a different room because I don't hear anything out of it or my old Play 1s. I tried to remove everything but there isn't that option. I want to remove my living room 2 set up and add the play 3 to my living room but I don't see how to do this. I'm sure people move speaker to different areas all the time. How do I start all over? I just want a play 3 in my room with my other speakers. Frustrated

If the PLAY:1s are already set up as PLAYBAR surrounds then that's your lot. You can't bond more speakers to the same room.

If the PLAY:1s are a separate 'room' then the controller would have given you the option of bonding new PLAY:3s to the PLAYBAR, but you'd nave needed two PLAY:3s.

To use a single PLAY:3 in the same area as the PLAYBAR all you can do is set it up as a separate 'room' and group it. This will be fine for music but it won't be in sync for TV sound.

Thank you. I thought you could add more than the original set up speakers to a room. Makes sense now. Thanks again !
Ok so now I put one play 3 in dining room and one play 3 in bedroom and added them but now no sound coming from them at all. I did the tuning and they made noise then. The living room is perfect with 2 Play 1s. What did I do wrong
What source are you attempting to play? You have selected each of those new rooms, right? Does internet radio not work?
Ok just saw Group settings. All is well
