Question

How can I use Smartthings (the new app) to play a playlist?

So I recently updated to the new Sonos integration, per Smartthings' recommendation in their September 17th email. That is, I changed the 'type' to "LAN Sonos Player Websocket". This, of course, broke my existing scenarios involving Sonos, such as playing a white noise playlist when I turn on the "goodnight" routine.

In trying to do something similar with the new app, I cannot find the setting to play a playlist (or any sound, for that matter) from any of my Sonos speakers. The only options available are to set the volume, or to mute/unmute.

Does anyone know how to accomplish this simple task which was quite easy before?

Thanks!

I'm in the same boat as Josh. SmartThings forced us to change the device handler for the Sonos speakers, and now I can't ask them to play an mp3 file off a CIFS share. :/

It'd be great if there was some documentation offered for this driver/handler.
