Is there a way to see the Move's battery life while in Bluetooth mode?

The battery life is only shown in the Sonos app. If you're connected to Sonos with WiFi, the Sonos app will show you the battery charge by the name of the room in the room screen or at the bottom of the app. Over Bluetooth, if you open the Sonos app, when off of the wifi, you'll see a new screen with the product image, it's name, and the battery life left.

You'll also get an amber LED indicating when the unit is very low on power (15% or under), but no battery life is displayed outside the Sonos app.

The  battery level show only on Bluetooth if the data on your phone are switch on, 3g or 4g. There is no battery status if you will connect a WiFi network when you play over Bluetooth. Strange decision from the engineers.

When I am connected to WiFi, there is no battery indicator for the Move speaker in the app.  It says “Offline” with a red dot next to it.  How do I check the current battery level, since it does not seem to be lasting very long :thinking:

Was your Move also switched over to WiFi mode?

I was listening to the Move in Blue Tooth mode while in the house.  So no, the Move was not on WiFi at the time.

But my Sonos app is connected to the WiFi in my house...
