Good speakers, terrible app

T2boogie's Review of Sonos Controller

Reviewed on 9/5/18 2:35 PM

I bought a couple of Sonos speakers in Jan 2018; I’d heard great reviews about the technology and was finally ready to commit. Since then, I’ve regretted that decision. The speakers provide quality sound, but the app is always problematic. So much so that I’ve had multiple tech support calls (their technicians were cool). But the point is that instead of updates improving the app, things tend to get worse (for me)... a lost of functionality, new bugs, etc. I can’t complain about the sound, just the app. I’m tired of listening to a song and right when it’s my favorite line, having it cut off midway.

Songs Skip

There is a lot I love about the Sonos system, however there are two things things that are very frustrating and inexcusable. The first is that songs regularly skip while playing on Amazon music. The second is that songs will consistently end prematurely while playing off of my iPhone X. Please fix ASAP. It’s been going on for far too long.

Fantastic

Modern perfection. Great design - fantastic system. Highly recommended. Not much more to say.

Update ruined everything!

Livforever's Review of Sonos Controller

Reviewed on 9/5/18 2:12 AM

I don’t know what happened with the second to last update. I used to be able to turn on my apple tv and it would play immediately through Sonos Play Base. Now unless I click into my phone app for Sonos the option for the audio output for apple TV doesn’t even show up. Once I do then I manually have to go into the apple tv settings to manually select the sonos speakers for audio. Why why? Is there a way to go back to the tent version? So sad.

A few years ago I committed my whole house system to Sonos. After the last 2 upgrades I wish I was back on my old cds. It’s a clumsey, user u friendly system. I think they are throwing out upgrades with minimal beta testing. I am mad and trapped

Still skips songs or stops when playing from iPhone

Sonos has had this problem for a while, and it still isn’t fixed. If you want to listen to a playlist or any music on your iPhone on your Sonos system, Sonos will suddenly stop playing in the middle of a song, and maybe if will skip ahead several songs before resuming play. At first Sonos tried to blame it on WiFi, but that was a mistake because everyone who reported the issue had perfectly functional WiFi. It turns out that the problem happens when your phone screen locks. (This used to not be a problem.) Once your screen locks because you aren’t using your phone, Sonos stops playing or skips songs. The “workaround” is to change your settings so your screen never locks. Not a good option for your battery, but that’s what Sonos suggests. One would think they would have fixed this problem with the update, but that’s not the case.

This was easily a 5 star system. Then to get ready for Airplay 2, they neutered my current system functionality. In response, I neuter this app rating.

When will Alexa be available in Mexico?

Albert Val's Review of Sonos Controller

Reviewed on 9/4/18 4:50 PM

I love Sonos and I use my speakers everyday. I’ve had these for almost 10 months now and still no Alexa support available in Mexico. I speak fluent English and wouldn’t mind the fact that Spanish wouldn’t be available but waiting on the “Smart” part of the speaker to be fully available is concerning.

Not impressed

Dannnnnnnnnnnnn's Review of Sonos Controller

Reviewed on 9/4/18 3:07 AM

I bought 5 of these a year ago and have had constant problems ever since, especially trying to play music from a source other than Spotify (eg music on a phone), which typically plays only the first 30-60 seconds before skipping to the next song. The sound quality is great but the software is glitchy and poor.
