Is it just me, or is there no way to set alarms in the new app?

I always use my Sonos one as a alarm to get up in the morning, it’s the only reason I bought the thing. And I absolutely hate that they removed alarms in the new app. Please bring them back as soon as possible.

Yes you're not alone! Bring it back ASAP please - it's the reason I bought my speaker!

I can’t believe it: the Sonos alarm clock is gone?

I trusted it and downloaded the new app, and here’s the unpleasant surprise.
What solution do you suggest?

Besides that, it seems like the timer that regulated the duration before falling asleep has disappeared too…

What a terrible decision!  Who at Sonos is authorizing the release of an “upgraded” app that actually reduces the usefulness of Sonos?  Fire that idiot and hire some intelligent software developers!

Your experience with the iPad are not the point. The issue here is the stupid decision by Sonos to remove this function from the phone app. I've checked the absolutely latest version (80.00.08) of the app and the function is NOT there. Nor has anyone from z Sonos replied to the repeated requests on this thread for information about a return of the alarm. So I wouldn't advise you to let the world know you can still use the alarm on other platforms - the brilliant minds at Sonos might pounce and remove it from there tomorrow

This is a shocking omission in the new app

Me too!

How could Sonos possibly remove such a valuable feature in the App.? This is not only a crazy commercial decision (maybe it was a mistake???), it is totally unacceptable. Would someone at Sonos please record a Post promptly stating when this feature will be restored please?

You can use a desktop controller to manage alarms.

I tried, but couldn’t find the alarm option anywhere. I used the the web interface.

Unbelievable decision. Amazon echo time.

Just update your app again.

On my Mac there's an alarms setting at the bottom right of the screen. I had to use it last night because of this $%##@ app “upgrade"

App is updated. Using IOS on iPhone. Still no alarm showing settings>mamage. In UK. Help.

I’m seeing the Alarms in the new App and I’m in the UK too - try signing out/in on the new App and see if that resolves it. I’d suggest fully closing the App too inbetween the sign out & sign in.

If you update the Sonos App from the App store - Alarms are in there now. At least I’m now seeing them on my iPad controller…

I’ve signed out and back in, I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it a couple times… still no alarms. 
This is maddening!

Hi Ken. Thanks. Just tried it twice and no change. I'll try deleting and reinstalling the app.

I’ve a Pixel 7 with the latest app (80.03.04-release+20240618.cd11093). All my Sonos are up to date (79.1-54060). But still I don’t have alarms!

I’ve reinstalled the app several times, I’ve deleted the app data several times, but still no alarm.

What’s wrong SONOS? According to your release notes, alarms should be there since several versions. Why I don’t have alarms in my app?

metti I had a similar problem and found the issue to be related to add blocker / firewall software that was blocking communications between the App and airship.com, who I believe provide services such as feature flags that companies can use to turn on / off functionality. 
 

When I lifted the firewall temporarily, I was able to get access to the Alarms.

I then also had to keep it lifted to set an initial alarm.

Thanks for the hint, but it didn’t work. I’m using indeed an unbound blacklist, but I didn’t find any request to airsip.com. I’ve also disabled the blacklist and still it didn’t work.

 

To be honest, if SONOS requires internet access to set an alarm, then I really no longer understand what they are doing...

I’ve to correct myself and yes, I’m more and more disappointed what SONOS is doing.

I had to whitelist msmetrics.ws.sonos.com and restart the app and suddenly, the alarms appeared 😔

Sorry, they should fire the people who are responsible for such a decision! 😡 How bold do you have to be to link such a functionality with collecting data for marketing? Sorry SONOS, this is a NO GO!

Deleted anbd reinstalled the app, logged back in and I can confirm that it is there now. Hurrah.

When it does show up, you should see it here in the new App in the ‘manage’ area below ‘About My System’.

I’m in the same boat. Deleted and reinstalled the app on both my iPhone and iPad. System is up to date according to the system check. Still no alarms!
