Strangely, my activity(usage)  weekly / YTD log showing hours used by speakers/ groupings seems to be no longer available.. perhaps it's and I've forgotten from which menu button to find it ... but I don't think so..

Hi IJN, I believe what you’re remembering wasn’t in app, but on Sonos.com 

We recently removed the My Data section of My Account as a result of some behind-the-scenes changes to our data sources. My Data was a way to visualize your home listening habits, such as how many hours of music per week, or most popular Rooms for listening. We haven't made any changes to what data we do or do not collect, this was purely a technical change that necessitated the removal of My Data. We're always looking for ways to help you get the most out of your listening experience in the future, so I’ll pass along your interest in seeing the feature returned at some time.

@Ryan S Are there any plans to bring the analytics dashboard back? I loved it and was actually looking forward to more analytics over time. Is there a different way to get the data e.g. via an API?

I don’t have any specific details on plans to bring back these dashboards, but I’ll let the team know you’re hoping to see them. There’s no API available for use to pull that data either.

that was a feature I truly enjoyed of Sonos.  looking forward to its return.  it was not perfect, particularly after December when Airplay 2 data started missing,but it was interesting enough.

What a shame and it would have been nice to have had a heads up, rather than the link just stop working without redirect or explanation. I also enjoyed seeing the trends of usage (even if the input from the turntable never registered).

I’d love to see this back as soon as possible too please.

if you’re still collecting the data then we should have access to it. It was a good feature and maybe you shouldn’t do stuff to convince sonos owners they are in a declining ecosystem they should move away from.

 

I would like this feature back as well. It was interesting to see the sources I was using most and where in my home I was using the speakers. 

Please bring the “My Data” Page back! I liked it to see how I listen to music / TV in my rooms. Please Bring it back online!!!

I just went to try and see what my Sonos usage looked like since I went into Shelter in Place/WFH, so I’d like to add to the collective cry of “please can we have that back” or maybe have it exposed via developer APIs?

I am going to jump in and echo this request to bring that page back.

Having usage data available is incredibly interesting and also important to help me convince my wife to buy more gear!

Bring it back!

+1 to bring back the "My Data" dashboard please... It's the only reason I chose to share the data. Without this  feature I might as well disable it and add Sonos to my pi-hole blacklist!

Just spent nearly hour trying to find overview of my Sonos usage …

Definitely would be appreciated to have it back available.

Would like the “My Data” feature back as well please ……..

I thought I was stupid not to find the data anylysis on sonos.com and finally found this post…

Please get the usage data analysis back...

Yes, count me in to the list of users who want access to their usage data. Under EU law I think we have a right to all the personal data you hold.

Why are we sharing the data if we don’t get to see it?

 

That really isn’t sharing that is taking.  Please return this feature.

You can stop them from “taking” this type of data by turning off data sharing in the app.

So… This is never coming back is it...

Adding my vote for this. Really miss this feature.

In the meantime, turning off the sharing of usage data in the app.
