Still no Japanese Mp3 tag support?

This question was raised 4 years ago and it’s baffling that there is still some issues about it.

Songs with Japanese characters as their title/artist/etc. are displayed in giberrish although they are perfectly displayed with other software (MediaMonkey, or just Windows Explorer...)

This is the case on both Windows and Android apps.

Any idea how to fix this issue?

Hi @gemini1096, thanks for reaching out. 


Apologies, I’m not personally familiar with the older thread. I’ve tested this with a track in my Windows music library, and it does appear to display correctly on both my Windows and Android controllers. Do you happen to have an example song that doesn’t display correctly? Would you be able to take a screenshot of how it displays in the Sonos app compared to the Windows Explorer screen?




Sorry for the late reply. I updated my library and this seems to have solved the issue.
