Release Notes for Sonos Software Version 9.0

Current software version

In this update:

  • Added support for AirPlay 2 to Sonos One, Sonos Beam, Playbase, and Play:5 (2nd generation). Group any Sonos player with an AirPlay-enabled speaker to use AirPlay anywhere in your home. Use Siri + AirPlay from your iPhone or iPad after adding your Sonos speakers in the Apple Home App.
  • Added software support for Sonos Beam - the smart, compact soundbar for your TV.
  • It is now possible to use Trueplay on the iPad 6.
  • Improvements to system status messages, including the ability to display full screen messages and smaller notifications in certain states (like loss of network connection).
  • Creating a Sonos account linked to an email address is now required. Creating a Sonos account lets you add more speakers, get new features, and safely and securely integrate with your streaming apps. Learn more about Sonos accounts here.
  • Performance and reliability improvements.

  • iOS 9 or later
  • macOS 10.10 or later

Alert: Changes to Lock Screen Controls for iOS

It will no longer be possible to control your Sonos system from the lock screen of your iPhone or iPad, including use of the hard volume buttons from the lock screen, if you have an Apple TV or other AirPlay-capable non-Sonos devices in your household with AirPlay enabled. It is still possible to use hard volume buttons from within the Sonos App. Learn more.

Alert: Android 4.3 Is Now Partially Supported

Due to the age and technical limitations of Android 4.3, that OS version can no longer support all Sonos features. Android 4.3 devices can still browse, search and play music using the latest Sonos app. Less common tasks like adding new speakers, modifying your music services or setting up a new Sonos system require Android 4.4 or higher. See our Sonos system requirements for full details.
