An Example: I am playing the same streaming channel in 2 (or more) different Sonos rooms, that are intentionally NOT in a group. The devices are not in sync, because the Sonos app detects this as different streams.
Why can’t the Sonos app detect this scenario and stream that channel to all rooms in sync?
It saves Internet bandwidth and eliminates the “echo” effect (or worse) that’s caused by the out-of-sync rooms. To me, the programming for this ought to be pretty simple. You already have all the information you need for this.
Yes, I know I can create a group. Simple enough. But what if I want to then separate the group and play separate channels? Tedious indeed.
The simplest solution would be for the app to allow using one or two clicks to create a group, and add or remove a room from a group without interrupting the stream in the remaining room(s). Unless I’m missing something, I don’t think there’s now a way to do this.
Thanks in advance for your response(s).

Nevermind. I had re-added a player to my system that had been disconnected awhile, and made sure it had the latest updates. What I was trying to do didn’t seem to work at first.
I tried it again and it did seem to work OK. Easy enough to add a player to a group and disconnect as well, without interrupting the stream. My apologies for wasting folks’ time.
Will let you know if the situation comes up again.
