Review from Alfons Kannegieter
Mooie app. Wifi valt wel af en toe wel weg. Geluid voor tv en geluid voor muziek is voor surround speakers apart in te stellen. Zou zo ook moeten zijn voor playbase en sub. Werkt verder prima.
You can't add a new station to Pandora through the App anymore. And you can no longer change the sort order for Pandora. App WAS great, I've had sonos for 8 or 9 years. This last BIG update changed the whole layout and now you have to go 3 extra steps to do anything. It's terrible and I hope someone is getting fired over this.
Unfortunately I have to agree with other reviewers, that the app is now worse and counterintuitive. My main gripe is how difficult it is to switch between rooms. It used to be one click, now I have to link two rooms first, before removing the one I don't want again. This makes listening to different music in different rooms impossible.
Lately this has turned into a total pain with bugs and a lousy redesign. What choice does the user have though? Over two years of a great app then ruined by poor QA. This stinks of rewrite maybe due to poor architecture, hence the bug count.
Oh Sonos, what are you doing? Changing the UI was a huge mistake. Nothing like as easy and intuitive as previously. Every update since (and there's been a fair few over the last couple of weeks) seems to create more issues. Can't find Sonos network, dropping speakers, intermittent connection during playback. Initially I thought it was my WiFi causing the problems, but seeing the comments on here has made me realise otherwise. GET IT SORTED
Used Sonos for years. Latest update is really really bad.... the user interface is completely counter intuitive. If you have the choice do not upgrade until Sonos listen to their users and revert the interface back to a usable one. I've had to install 3rd party Sonos apps to control room volume and control. I get the feeling someone has been hired to revamp the UI and this person doesn't actually use a multiroom Sonos system. Swallow the pride and rollback!!
The latest update as of 21st November has certainly improved the speed of my Sonos system. I'm still not sold on the intuitiveness of the app redesign, but am getting used to it. Although generally I do like the new theme. Just needs a bit more polish around the edges. The speed enhancements are much welcomed though. Hopefully things will keep getting better.
This update fixes a bug we found in our most recent software release.
