Sonos, please add this feature!!!
+1.. please work on this.. it's been two years since this request. I'm obviously a Sonos fan, hence the time dedicated writing this request. However, my experience, even as a long time Beta Tester, is that Sonos does not listen to its customers. Prove me wrong please
Along with many others a Group option for Sonos alarm would be most welcome. I have alarms set on three rooms at staggered times. The delay between rooms as one after the other comes on is so frustrating. Please can we have a fix for this


It would be great to see alarms play on pre-grouped rooms, but not using the "Include in grouped rooms" setting as I am likely to change grouping throughout the day, and so when the alarm goes off it doesn't work for me, that it plays on the my previous days groups.

It is also not ideal to set several alarms playing the same source (in my case TuneIn radio), as it is massively out of sync.

I think this would be a huge benefit as did your engineer when I spoke to them earlier.

Thanks.
+1 Wow I thought it was just me not understanding my system by not having the grouped alarm. I do have one query with regards to volume levels on each speaker when the alarm goes on. For example I do not want my Play one in my bedroom to be super loud when the alarm goes off, but I would like my Kitchen to be louder without having to manually increase volume. Any suggestions ?

I saw that another topic asking about the same question has been closed without an official answer

But does the option to group players in the alarm setting, or use pre-configured group of players will be added one day ?

No new updates to share about this topic, but I felt it's important to shed some light on this.

That topic was closed because it was originally a Troubleshooting thread, not a feature request. Feedback is much more effective and actionable when it's able to be found in one central location/topic. Thanks for keeping the conversation going, the team is always working to continually make improvements to Sonos and that begins with hearing from our users.
Please add that.
I’m also surprised this still isn’t possible. Happy to beta test this 🙂
This alarm-sync-failure-thing is a real dealbreaker. It's incredible this is 3 years after the first request not resolved. I recommend people to search for other brands until this is resolved. I'm sorry to have extended my system with multiple speakers. Shame on you Sonos!

Could you tell me which other brand has this feature?
Yup. This is annoying me now that I have a beam that breaks the group as soon as someone turns on the tv
Just turn off the "auto play" feature in the room settings, and it won't change unless you choose to do so.
Just turn off the "auto play" feature in the room settings, and it won't change unless you choose to do so. that doesn’t behave like we would hope because then the tv broadcasts over all the speakers. I use the beam as part of whole home sound so I’d like it to come on when scheduling music to play everywhere, 4:30 when we get home. Since you can’t choose more than one speaker for an alarm, you need the group, but the group is broken up when the tv comes on in the evening.

I like the beam but regret that I didn’t get a regular sound bar
