So I got a Sonos Roam as a gift. Issue is I have a full S1 system (several Connects and Connect amps) that are only S1 compatible.

The Roam is only S2 compatible.

so figured I could download the S2 app and use that app with the Roam and the S1 with my existing system 

But it won’t seem to let me and keeps kicking me out to the S1 app (where the roam won’t work).


Can’t I use two different apps on the same phone to control the two different systems?

While setting up the S2 system, power down the S1 system. At this point you may need to uninstall and re-install the S2 controller. Refrain from factory resetting the S1 system.
