Release Notes for Sonos Software Version 8.3

Current software version

This update includes improvements for the Sonos app.


Easier navigation.

The 5-tab navigation bar is now always visible at the bottom of the app, including on the Now Playing screen.

Black Now Playing screen.

We’ve made the Now Playing screen black, so it's more pleasant to use at night and emphasizes the artist and album art.

Clearer room control.

Now you can more easily identify which speakers are grouped from the Room menu. It also displays more rooms, which is especially helpful for homes with more speakers.

Also in this release.

  • Support for Trueplay tuning with iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X.
  • Some minor security improvements.
