iTunes library 1/5
By Jimmy Grisham
Software gets better and better 5/5
Love this software
I love my Sonos speakers, but for what they cost, this app should be A LOT more reliable. Songs just stop half way through, and go to the next one, or just stop playing altogether. Also be nice if it would automatically stop when you receive a phone call.
Last update 1/5
By Frustrated 34567
Buffering problems. Intermittent bursts of sound. And now nothing after powering down and reading a Sonos speaker.
Incompatible with my iPhone 1/5
Sonos is Still incompatible with the iTunes library when played from an iPhone. They’ve promised a fix, but a year later all they offer are unworkable, illogical work-arounds. Let the buyer beware.
Good — but falls short of excellent 4/5
By A little Learning...
The Sonos app lets you manage the splendid Sonos ecosystem and replaces the now- discontinued Sonos controller. It
Does the job and is, with practice, useable. But it does suffer from the inevitable limitations of IOS: size/screen restraints make for the need to navigate and it takes time to learn where all the features you need are hiding. But — finally, and with patience — you get there!
Never been happier with my Sonos 5/5
By violet's daughter
I received my first Sonos about 6 years ago. Love, love, love it! I have hearing loss and this works great for me. Last year I purchased a Sonos one and this year I purchased another Sonos one with Alexa. Sandy loves the sound! I never use my stereo with speakers anymore. Thanks for the best product. Sandy Cowan
Mostly Satisfying 3/5
Sometime in the past year or so my system started to clip the last part of songs when playing from an iTunes playlist on my iPhone 7, which turned out to be a well-known problem. Frustrated that Sonia pretends there is no problem.
Best product on market, still. 5/5
By Darnell W.
No better product or app on the market.
I don’t like having to have a registered account to use my system.
Drop outs 3/5
I have my system wired under the Sonos mesh networks and I still get dropouts.
I love Sonos when it works !
More quirks than woody Allen 2/5
When it actually operates, sonos sounds beautiful. However, constant quirks like: only playing 20 secs of each song then skipping, getting generic messages like, “that station is not available,” when nothing is available to play, music still playing after I close everything down, and the list goes on. I use to call tech support once a month (yea I know it’s my router. Right) and each episode is 1/2-1 hr out of my life so now I just warn my guests that the music may end at any moment.
I don’t like that it only works with wifi
Awful app that hardly works on our network. Very disappointing.
Love it! 5/5
We love our Sonos system! I like that we can add more speakers as needed throughout the house. Everything syncs together perfectly. Definitely do not regret the purchases. The app works great as well! I do wish they would add an outdoor speaker that does not need to be plugged in and is weather proof. Would be great out on a deck or patio or out by the fire pit with friends. Until then, we’ll keep enjoying our Sonos system indoors!
Sonos disappointment 2/5
Sound does not sync with tv..... either a nano second before or after.....very annoying!!!
Volume can’t be controlled via remote only phone!! Very inconvenient.
Sorry we purchased this sound bar.
Best Purchase 5/5
I’ve been wanting to buy a Sonos system and finally did. Unbelievably happy with the system. The app is also very good and the system setup was so simple.
Incredible sound throughout house. 5/5
By UNC Prof
I have nine Sonos speakers in my house linked with my preexisting eight speaker system by way of Sonos Connect in the family room to produce incredible sound throughout the house. I have ones in my bedrooms, dining room and study and a three in the kitchen. The two study ones are linked for stereo and to a sub. I play mainly Jazz on Spotify and Pandora over the system controlled by Alexa. I can’t imagine a better or more affordable way to have incredible music throughout the house.
Skips songs 1/5
By Z Money
Sonos is so great except for a new bug that cuts of the end of every song it plays. Absolute gong show.
Missing function.... 4/5
I wish there was a way to Share a Sonos Playlist with another Sonos user. Or, any Share functions at all. If both users have the same music accounts (iMusic, Amazon, etc), I don’t see why this isn’t possible. Maybe in the future?
Trade old hard ware. Fix drop out issues 1/5
By Mac rofalus
Fix song skip issue. Screw your sign in.
Not that great 2/5
I’ve had Sonos for 5 years now and definitely can’t say it’s life changing. Often times I can’t connect to the system from the Spotify app so I have to go through the sonos app but it’s not that easy to find playlists, podcasts etc. FYI it also doesn’t pair with the podcast app on Apple.
So easy 5/5
By Lite fingers
Really enjoy making the move to Sonos.
Doesn’t work with iTunes on my mobile devices 1/5
We’ve enjoyed Sonos for years and music is an important part of our lives. For the past several months our iTunes music skips when played from mobile devices like iPhone and iPad but not when played on our laptops. We’ve given this feedback via a service call. To date there hasn’t been a fix and we don’t hear from Sonos regarding what you are doing about it. It’s difficult to enjoy our music and to refer Sonos to others. Music plays fine from streaming services like Slacker.
Broken update 2/5
I love the products and the app has generally been good. The most recent update has issues. It frequently does not show anything playing, does not allow be to stop or edit the current playlist and does not show all my speakers. Fortunately the desktop app still works correctly.
Pausing and skipping songs 1/5
The app always pauses and skips songs. I’m not able to listen to a full song when playing from my phones library. This has been ongoing for some time with the App and my Play 1 and talked about online, what’s the deal?
Everything that you could possibly hate 1/5
How does this have such good reviews? It’s the worst speaker/app combo I’ve ever had to use. The fact that Sonos in general makes you use their app instead of a standard Bluetooth connection is infuriating, but the app is seriously flawed. You can’t close your phone or it will skip songs. If you need to repair your WiFi, it’s a whole ordeal. Buy Bose or something better than this.
Constant dropping 1/5
I live in a townhouse so not too big. I have a speaker in every room, 5 total. The music constantly cuts in and out or just stops totally. I do have a sonos bridge as well but that hasn’t helped. The speakers are incredibly frustrating to use as they never work when I have friends over. I usually have to get my much cheaper Bluetooth speaker to enjoy music in the house.
Add some features please 3/5
The app is rarely buggy and the GUI is fairly well designed. I would like the following features added to the app.
1. Lock screen volume control and song control.
2. Better integration with Spotify where I have more access to the constantly updated playlists (specifically my “Daily Mixes”). Adding them to my library means that I freeze the playlist and don’t get new updated songs. Since Sonos currently requires that those playlists reside in my library, I can’t enjoy the newly added songs when Spotify updates them.
3. Please sign a deal with MLB so that I can listen to games on my very nice and wonderful speakers 😉. I currently bring out an old Bluetooth speaker and set it on a table. Are we barbarians now!?!?!?
Please add these features to your next code sprint! I’m holding off on buying more Sonos 1s for my patio because of these limitations.
Sonos a World unto itself , leading the way into the future. 5/5
Listen to it, feel it, live it, There is no other.
Confused on how to use Sonos as a Bluetooth device. ??
Extremely slow and worthless 1/5
Sonos trying to force hardware upgrades. They removed the ability to control speakers from phone locked screen. Additionally the software has become slow and errors out frequently. Lastly, in order to use Spotify, one must have a premium acct. Nice sounding product, but not worth the extra money and loss of functionality. Going back to Bose.
This is AMAZING!! 5/5
Sonos is fun, loud and great for music. I love how it is connected with WIFI!! Get sonos!! It’s great for party’s and you can get a bunch of the speakers to put around your house!! Sonos is highly recommended!
By Gypsy Mark
There are a number of poorly designed elements of this app, but the killers that make it unusable are...
1) the lack of lock screen or side button controls if you want to have Bluetooth on.
2) lack of Apple Watch control
3) scrolling through a long list of artists takes a very long time because there is no quick alphabet slider on the right like there is in almost every other music app
Too frequent updates 2/5
I appreciate performance improvement but every time I open the app it needs to update. Most of the time I have to reconnect the speakers individually. Not as good experience when trying to entertain friends. It’s a hassle.
Love the app 5/5
I love this app but I do wish they would get a widget for this app.
Sonos is great 5/5
By hou. dave
We have five speakers and will use Alexa to turn them on in the morning
Podcast support stinks 1/5
By coop 93
Tried to listen to podcast and if you try to rewind or adjust where you are in the podcast using the slider, it restarts from the beginning. I’ve been using Sonos for 5 years and can’t believe it can’t do better than that.
Sonos system 5/5
I started with the Sonos bar, then upgraded to two more portable speakers. I now feel like I have a mini movie theater in my living room. I do music production and sound design for a living and I can say having grown up on Bose systems in the 90s we are in a whole new room with Sonos. Highly recommended, buy direct, and get great customer service.
Getting lazy 1/5
Not innovating and long time customer
Do not buy 1/5
Very poorly designed system. Frequently drops speakers from the network so you have to manually read-add them. Would not recommend.
My Sonos 5/5
We have SONOS speakers in most rooms of our house. Fantastic sounds everywhere. The app is easy to use and play what we want where we want it. Cheers to SONOS.
How about a outdoor speaker next?
Sonos RG 5/5
By RGR Music 23
Me encanta es una súper aplicación
Playing from iTunes does not work
The app is terrible - had nothing but problems adding songs to queue - error 701, been a problem for years. I have $400 ubiquiti access points. I hate it. Very difficult to troubleshoot. Also lose access to Apple Music - oh have 1 gb fiber connection to the internet also.
App issues 1/5
App keeps losing connection to Sonos speakers !!!!!!
The Best 5/5
I am so happy I bought this
I gave away my 1200 Denon and all t5 speakers
Sono is the best
Tidal and Spotify 3/5
Sonos makes awesome audio interface and speaker products. I wish the software were a little bit better. I would love it if I could have the full functionality of Tidal and Spotify in the Sonos software/app (artist radio, my mixes created by Tidal, etc.).

There’s too many updates
