Sonps please take these user reviews seriously! Update is apalling. User interface is so un-intuitive. Everything takes more clicks to get there or to find what you need and who thought of putting the icons at the bottom of the screen so they get accidentally pressed everytime you pick up your phone?! (This lasted all of a week on Facebook when they rapidly changed it back. Sonos take note!)
How could anyone have approved this upgrade to V8. Completely counter-intuitive. I'm not one of those stubborn technophobes who can't adapt. I'll happily upgrade for the better, but come on Sonos, this is a huge step backwards. You are losing your hard earned fan base. I feel sorry for your customer service reps.
Seriously bad updates rendering my numerous Sonos speakers and hardware inoperable. The search functionality is now super slow and my rooms drop out ALL the time. Don't think I'll be buying anymore of your products until these software issues are solved which based on the previous 4 or 5 iterations will be quite some time!
Ever since the redesign of the app I feel like they have taken several steps backwards in usability. The interface is not so natural to use and it takes mora actions to do certain things compared to before. Also the interface changed to white/bright without possibility to change back.
Nice speaker, crippled by the garbage app. I have 2 speakers and the app will not let me choose which speaker to play on! I can select the speaker and choose something to play on it but it will usually go and play on the speaker I don't want it to play on and just refuses to accept my instruction. Downright infuriating and really making me consider returning the speakers because of this dumb app. This is really badly botched.
Why on Earth do you need to have a Sonos account, just to search for speakers, or configure them? It's like buying a TV, and before you can use it, you have to register for an account with the manufacturer. Ummm... I just want it to work out of the box, no configuration needed, no account registration... I cannot recommended Sonos products.
This update delivers a couple of performance improvements, bug fixes and a security update for the WiFi WPA2 KRACK vulnerability.
