What's New in Version 8.2.1
This update fixes a bug we found in our most recent software release.
Navigation Improved - Same Terrible White Backround
This latest update significantly improved navigation ease and speed, but the UI is still sub par. Seriously, listen to your users and ditch the terrible bright white background! Guys- it’s terrible. I know your very acoustically focused, but I would like to keep my vision. If you even just inverted the colors it would be a huge improvement. At the very least give the option as a setting. The old dark background was great and I cannot think of one good reason of why this is better. Maybe there’s a kickback if people use pandora to control sonos?!
Update: Why are you integrating with Pandora’s app?! Another new BS feature bringing down a once great app and speaker system. Uncontrolled increases in volume would not stop until I uninstalled the app and re-installed. I liked the sonos app so that I didn’t have to use the individual music apps and had access all together. Extremely disappointed with the recent changes with this app, and the selling out for another buck from pandora over your customers. The only thing you should be adding is Apple AirPlay support and stop focusing and these frivolous distractions that’s are only lowering the ease of use and core functionality.
Interface is quirky
Acute Problem. Latest version including today’s 8.2.1 is broken. Recently added albums and playlists in my Apple Music Library are not syncing to Sonos. Sonos controller is clueless that I made a Sibelius playlist yesterday. My macOS and iOS devices are all synced, but my Sonos controllers aren’t. I often wish I could stream to Sonos directly from iTunes or iOS Music like airplay devices. Sonos proprietary controller is just not as rock solid as it should be.
Previous Review: The speakers work and sound great. Connects to my massive Apple Music iCloud Music Library just fine, even though it takes a while to sync my latest additions. iTunes changed the names of the Apple Music tabs quite a while ago, but this app still has the old titles. My pet peeves are that it does not know how to ignore "The" when listing alphabetically, and the "Albums" listing is not by artist. Also, it does not give the alphabet listed vertically to speed up scrolling down to artist down the alphabet like U2 & Van Halen. Being very used to the many options the iTunes interface provides, this seems very limited and rigid.
Lacks Polish But Works
Just bought a few Sonos Ones with Alexa, so needed this app. It’s about 5 minutes more complicated than necessary. You need to dig into the bowls of the app to play a Podcast, menus for control of Apple Music, etc. It’s almost like they tried creating a parallel OS within iOS. Once installed, it should allow specifications to be done within Alexa app, and natively within iOS to stream directly to my speakers. But it’s cost me 5 additional minutes and therefore, it cost this app a single star in the ratings. Otherwise, it works as well as advertised. Nicely done Sonos. You’re leaving Bose in the dust with your embrace of technology, and the refinement in the sound from your speakers. Good job!
