Release Notes for Sonos Software Version 8.1

Current software version

This update delivers support for the all-new Sonos One.


Control Sonos One, the smart speaker for music lovers.

Sonos One blends great sound with Amazon Alexa, the easy-to-use voice service, for hands-free control of your music and more.

Connect Sonos One with Amazon Alexa easily over Wi-Fi. Just set up the speaker, select the Sonos skill in the Amazon Alexa app, and you’re all set to play music, get news and answers, manage your smart devices and enjoy the wide selection of Alexa skills using nothing but your Sonos One.

Since Sonos and Amazon Alexa are continually updating with new features, services and skills, your music and voice options will both keep getting better over time.

Voice control for Sonos with Amazon Alexa is currently supported in the US, UK, Germany and Austria. These features will be available in other countries when Sonos and a voice service launch together in that specific country.
