Has anyone managed to get Sonos speakers to show up as devices in the Shortcuts app? I have Sonos Ones and they are set up in the Home app, but they won’t show up as devices in the Shortcuts app so I can add them to scenes/automations.

ahhh I remember now!! LOL IOS 13.2 is suppose to introduce airplay speakers in scenes with automations and I can only assume shortcuts as well. In effect adding Airplay 2 speakers to groups as well. That may be your ticket to resolution! Research IOS 13.2 Airplay 2 Automations and scenes..That should get you excited! It works for me! 😁

I’d love to get this set up too but it think it’s only for HomePods on iOS 13.1 I think.

i am considering jumping ship .... especially with NFC tags now being able to trigger scenes

All of mine show up. When you Create the shortcut add "Set Playback Destination" it will default to the device you create the shortcut on. Highlight that device and a Drop down list will show up and populate all speakers available to play back to. I have 4 shortcuts setup for airplay playback to my Sonos speakers.

OK, I can get then to show up this way, thank you! However, I can only select one at a time?!?! As far as I can see you cannot Set Playback Destination to multiple Sonos Ones?
