Download the app on your mobile device. You’ll use it to set up and control your Sonos system. If you’re upgrading from the Sonos S1 app, you can remove S1 from your device after you upgrade.

If you have both older and newer products, you can unplug your older products, or upgrade them; or you can create two separate systems—one running S2 with products that are S2 compatible and another running S1 with products that are not.
