I am getting a bit tired of the Sonos ecosystem. What used to work near flawlessly has become nothing but a nuisance since I added new speakers and was forced to use the S2 App. I have a Play: 1, SonosOne, Play:3, Play:5 (2nd gen), and a Move. The older speakers rarely show up in the app. Last night was a rare occasion where all speakers appeared. I played some music in 2 of the rooms (Play:5 and Move). Five minutes later I wanted to change songs and only the Move and SonosOne were in the app. If I check my wife’s phone, she will see something entirely different. If I use the app for my Windows Desktop, I will see different speakers than what my phone shows. But rarely, and I mean rarely, will all 5 speakers show up.
I can still somewhat control them even though they won’t show up. For example, if I was previously playing music on that speaker, I can hit play on the speaker and it will play music. But I cannot change music because they don’t show up in the app. It is so frustrating.
I shouldn’t have to reprogram or do any super tech stuff on my end. These are advertised as plug in and play. And they used to be. I keep hoping for some update that will fix this issue, but it seems to become only more frequent. I honestly cannot promote Sonos as the best any longer. What the hell do I need to do to get my speakers working properly? (Sorry. I am frustrated beyond...)
