What's New in Version 5.4


By your request, we’ve improved our shuffle feature in the Sonos App to relist upcoming tracks in their new, revised playing order. TuneIn Radio also has a new new look with improved icons and high def album art.

Enjoy some slight changes we’ve made to improve the clarity of the PLAY:1. We’ve also optimized the bass performance when you pair the PLAY:1 with a SUB.

We’ve made a wired connection to the router optional for home theater setups (i.e. surround sound). If you already have Sonos home theater– no need to change a thing.

Finally, we’ve also created an updated set of tools to help our partners easily bring new features to the Sonos app in the future like time of day music recommendations, and more.

Customer Reviews

I'm an IT/AV specialist and I sell Sonos, but app needs fixed!

I've sold and owned Sonos for 3+ years now, it is great product and my friends and customers love it. However I have to agree with blurbyu in the review below, that the smartphone app has become flawed. It loses my many Sonos components after I start playing them. Sometimes 2-3 songs in on Pandora, sometimes just after unpausing them. My network uses Static IPs, and my Sonos Connects are hard wired to my LAN, and my iPhone 6 is static IP to the same network wirelessly. I have reset all my units many times, and update everything constantly. But for the past 3-4 months the app loses one or two of my Sonos players. They randomly show up and disappear in the app over a 30-60 minute session of music. It's very annoying when a song is going that I want to turn down from 100ft away, and suddenly the player is gone from the app, but still streaming music.... LOUDLY. I have to manually run over to the Sonos component and turn it down with the buttons. Fix the app guys!!

Wish I'd started years sooner

I've become a huge Sonos fan and wish I'd tried out the system years instead of mere months ago. I've dispersed four Play:1s around the house and have a Soundbar for home theater surround minus a Sub (so far). I've had zero of the problems I see in other reviews. The software is Apple quality and while not audiophile caliber the hardware is the best digital reproduction I've heard. I wish I could control the volume on my locked phone from the phone volume buttons as I can with the Apple music app, and I wish the rest of the album/playlist would play when I start with a song in the middle. Other than that, I'm totally satisfied.

Great System! Frustrating App...

First, let me just say that I think the Sonos system is great!
It does what I want it to do, it does it well, and it's incredibly flexible. I highly recommend any and all of the Sonos components.

However, this is a review of the iPhone App itself.
I think this is the weakest, or at least most frustrating piece, of the system.
Roughly 90% of the time it refuses to see my system. If I close and re-open the app, it may work or it may not.
I've found the only way to reliably get the app to find the system is to turn the wifi off on my phone (while the app is open) and then turn the wifi back on. As soon as the wifi connects the App refreshes and shows the system.

This never used to happen, or at least not nearly as frequently, until an update a few (6?) months ago. There have been a number updates since and the problem almost seems to be getting worse.

Sonos, please fix this app. It is hindering me from using my system as often as I would like. It is also keeping me from recommending the system to my iOS loving friends.
