Once your Sonos system is set up, you can use your computer to control the music, too. Get the app for your PC or Mac at sonos.com/support.
Note: Get more information about the latest Sonos system requirements and compatible audio formats.
Note: Your Sonos products and the mobile device with the Sonos app need to be on the same WiFi network.
You can switch between wired and wireless setup if something changes in your home. Learn more about setting up your Sonos products.
During setup you’ll create a Sonos account that's used to manage and expand your Sonos system (both in the app and on www.sonos.com).
If you need to verify your user ID, change a password, or transfer your account to a different email address, open the app on your mobile device and tap > Account. (If Account isn't available, your system needs to be updated.)
Learn more about Sonos accounts.
Control the volume on your Sonos system several different ways—whatever works best in the moment.
It's easy to expand your Sonos system anytime.
Just plug in the new speaker, open the Sonos app, and tap Add when it appears, or go to Settings > System > Add Product.
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.
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.
Sonos allows quick and easy access to any Sonos system. When you add another Sonos system in the app, it will automatically connect as you move from one place to another so you can enjoy Sonos at home, at a friend’s, or at your vacation house without missing a beat.
If you are connected to more than one Sonos system and no longer want to connect your mobile device to the current one, go to > System > Forget Current Sonos System. You might want to do this when you join a Sonos system temporarily, like a vacation rental.
If you create a new Sonos account, or you’re using pre-owned products that are still registered to the original account, you will need to transfer system ownership. If you don’t know the credentials for the existing account, go to > Account and tap Sign Out, then go to Settings > System > Transfer System Ownership to assign a new account to your Sonos system.
After you install a new router or change your network password, update your Sonos system with the new network information. Just open the Sonos app and we’ll walk you through it.
You don’t have to do anything when you install a new router (as long as you connect a Sonos product to it) or when you change your password. Your Sonos products will continue to work as before.
