Bluetooth pairing

  2. Press and hold the Bluetooth button on the back of the speaker until you hear a tone, then release. The status light blinks blue when the speaker is ready to pair.
  3. Choose Sonos Move 2 from the list of available devices in your Bluetooth settings. Your mobile device will automatically connect next time you press the Bluetooth button.

Select a location

You can put your Sonos Move 2 just about anywhere. For maximum performance, here's a few guidelines:

  • For best performance, leave at least 1" (2.5 cm) space around the back of Move 2 when placing it next to a wall or shelf.
  • It’s ultra durable. With a tough outer shell and IP56 rating, Move 2 is built to withstand falls, bumps, moisture, dust, UV rays, and extreme temperatures (charging base is for indoor use only).
  • Enable auto TrueplayTM in the Sonos app—Move 2 can tune itself for amazing sound no matter where you are and what you’re listening to.
  • Don’t use or store your Sonos speaker upside down.

Microphone on/off

The microphones in Sonos Move 2 are used for voice control and other features found in the Sonos app, like auto TrueplayTM.

The universal microphone switch on the back allows you to quickly turn on or off all microphones in the speaker and adds an extra level of privacy when you want it (it's turned on out of the box).

The voice services button on top toggles voice control on and off without affecting the microphones needed for auto Trueplay and other microphone-related features.

When the voice services light is on:

  • If you set up voice control, it's ready to listen.
  • The universal microphone switch is on.

When the voice services light is off:

  • If you set up voice control, it's not available.
  • The universal microphone switch could be on or off.

Voice services

Use your voice to control your Sonos system with any voice-enabled Sonos product—play and control content, turn the volume up or down, and more.

  • Sonos Voice Control: control your whole Sonos system with hands-free ease and unmatched privacy. Sonos Voice Control comes ready to use—it only takes a few seconds to add when you set up your speakers. More information
  • Amazon Alexa: you’ll need the Sonos app and the Alexa app with the Sonos skill enabled. You’ll make some changes in both apps during setup. Learn more
  • Siri: you’ll need the Apple Home app. Add your AirPlay2-compatible Sonos speakers to the Apple Home app and then use an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV to ask Siri to play music (currently limited to Apple Music). Learn more

Note: Voice control isn’t supported in every country yet—this feature will be available as soon as Sonos and a voice service launch together in your region.


Every room is different. Trueplay tuning measures how sound reflects off walls, furnishings, and other surfaces in a room, then fine tunes your Sonos speaker to make sure it sounds great no matter where you've placed it.

Trueplay works on iOS mobile devices running iOS 8 or later. During tuning, you'll move around the room holding your mobile device.

  1. Select > System, and pick the room you want to tune.
  2. Choose Trueplay Tuning to get started.

Auto Trueplay

Portable Sonos products like Sonos Roam and Move can tune themselves automatically. Auto Trueplay uses your speaker’s microphone to detect the environment and make periodic tuning adjustments so you get great sound wherever your speaker is and whatever you're listening to.

Go to > System, and select your portable speaker to turn on auto Trueplay.

Set up stereo pair

Pair two Sonos speakers in the same room for an even wider, stereo experience. One speaker serves as the left channel and one serves as the right channel.

Note: The Sonos speakers in a stereo pair must be the same type.

  1. Place the speakers 8 to 10 feet apart. Your favorite listening position should be 8 to 12 feet from the paired speakers—less distance increases bass, more distance improves stereo imaging.
  2. Go to > System.
  3. Select one of the speakers you want to use in the stereo pair, then choose Set Up Stereo Pair to get started.

Turn off WiFi

(not available for Sonos Era 100, Era 300, or portable products)

You can disable the touch control on your speaker. You may want to do this to prevent a child or curious pet from accidentally adjusting playback or volume. Learn more

Battery Saver

(portable products only)

To save battery life, you can set your portable speaker to power off automatically instead of going to sleep. It won't appear in the Sonos app until it’s powered back on.


(Sonos products with line-in capability)

When a projector, turntable, stereo, or other audio device is connected to a Sonos product, you can adjust these line-in settings:
