This widget solves the problem all Sonos users have: to control a list of all your zones from your notification screen without the need to unlock your iPhone or launch the Sonos app.

SonoControls gives you Sonos volume and track controls for ALL your zones, as a widget on your Today Notification screen. This widget is accessible on your WiFi network, even when your Sonos is not playing! Great to come home and start your music, without the need to unlock your iPhone or launch the Sonos app.

See it in action on YouTube:

Just swipe and control your Sonos system.
• Control all your Sonos speakers from the Today Notification screen
• Volume up, down, mute, play, pause, next, previous track
• Works great together with the official Sonos app! It adds a handy widget to your Today screen, even when your iPhone is locked
• Need to switch playlists? Simply tap the track/artist name text to start the official Sonos app (when installed)
• SonoControls is an independent and unofficial app, and is not affiliated with Sonos in any way.
• Clean layout with nicely sized controls and album artwork
• Works with both a single or multiple controllers, grouped and paired
• Show or hide speakers. Pick the speakers you'd like to see in your widget, and change the order of your speakers
• Show grouped speakers as a group, or as individual speakers
• The widget scales size to fit on the screen, but you can also pick your favourite size manually
• Set the volume precision to your taste, and limit the maximum volume to protect your ears
• Designed and built by somebody who uses his own Sonos system daily!
• No configuration needed, the app finds your Sonos system automatically. If you group or ungroup controllers with the Sonos app, just use the refresh button in the SonoControls app to see the new grouping
• Works for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch
• Some Sonos network configurations do need manual IP address configuration, which is quite easily done in the App, tab settings. Need setup support? Contact me on for personal support. Thank you!

Will not work!

I cannot, even after watching video, get the start up screen to move. This Apattiea60 needs to be updated. Something is wrong for many of the users. Handed over money for nothing.

Hello, Sorry to hear that. The app works in iOS 12 here, the trick is to access the today screen, in order to add the widget, as displayed in this video: , please drop us a message at

Not working anymore.

Can’t see speakers. Doesn’t swipe down or left or right. Practically unusable. Perhaps it’s an iOS update that did that??

Update: Working excellently again! Thanks for the instructions.

Hmmm that is strange, still works here and for other users. Could you check this video?

Perfect addition my Sonos system

Just what I was looking for. Thank you for your work on the app. Have been using just over a week. I have a 10 speaker installation so far. Makes quick adjustments to audio much more convenient than drilling down to the Sonos app controls. It is Worth the $.
