I am trying to play a playlist with 224 hours of music but keep getting message saying unable to add songs to queue. I have done step 1 reset but that didn't work. Any suggestions? It seems disappointing that I can play this on my simple UE Boom but not on my flash Sonos Move device.

Thanks for that information.
There’s no solid limit of 2500 songs that can be added to a queue, it’s more a case of what the network can transmit in time during the initial playback request. Most networks will struggle to send information of over 2500 tracks to the player before the music starts, which can result in errors in adding tracks to the queue.
The comparison between the UE Boom via Bluetooth and your Sonos system which operates via WiFi isn’t exactly fair, since the transmission methods of the music are rather different. Your UE Boom will rely on the direct connection between the phone/tablet/PC and the speaker, whereas the Sonos system connects directly to Spotify’s servers and streams that way. This is how you’d be able to start playback and switch off the device that started the music and it would continue playing - this wouldn’t be the case for Bluetooth.
As a workaround, you might want to consider using Spotify Connect. This would mean using the Spotify app and starting playback there, casting the music to the Sonos system. This would remove the need for the player to queue the music and should let you play the entire playlist of 3772 songs.
