”... a must for virtually every owner of a Sonos audio system” (iTopnews)
Sonobit is the most feature-packed remote widget for Sonos on the market. Sonobit has been rewritten to take full advantage of the latest features in iOS 11 and watchOS 4. You don’t even have to unlock your iPhone/iPad to access advanced features like group control and ”Pause All”. Just swipe to the right on the Home screen or the Lock screen of your iPhone/iPad to access the widget.
Sonobit also runs on your Apple Watch! It gives you the full set of media buttons and shows the currently playing song and album art.
List of features:
- Either run Sonobit as a collapsed, minimalistic widget or an expanded, full-featured widget
- Control groups of speakers
- Pause all your Sonos speakers with just one tap
- Toggle repeat and shuffle
- Play/pause, skip tracks, adjust volume and mute
- View the currently playing song and album art
- Hold your finger on volume down to mute and on volume up to unmute in collapsed state
- Launch the official Sonos app by tapping the album art
- Available in English, German and Swedish
No setup is required! Sonobit automatically detects all your Sonos devices instantly. That also means that if you’re on a friend’s Wi-Fi, Sonobit will automatically reconfigure itself and connect to your friend’s Sonos system!

In rare cases, Sonobit is unable to automatically discover Sonos devices. This may be because UPnP is not enabled on your router. If Sonobit says "No Sonos system available", you can manually add your Sonos devices. Start the Settings app on your iPhone/iPad and tap Sonobit. Follow the instructions there for adding your devices and finish by launching the Sonobit iPhone/iPad app once for the settings to take effect.

Ratings and Reviews
This widget can only control the volume and skips tracks No room control. No access to favorite radios or music. Only volume on rooms selected previously on Sonos app and music on and off. That’s it. Waste of money.
No instructions, sure there is something on my Apple Watch but I can’t even change rooms or music playing, this is a waste of $, and if I CAN change these things, HOW, the “app” piece on my phone just shows how to add it to my main screen. Don’t buy this!
No Apple Watch app
Installed as widgets on iPhone and iPad but it does not appear on Apple Watch or in the watch app.
