Connecting an Android device to SonosNet

<= Back

SonosNet is the dedicated wireless network that Sonos creates when operating in a BOOST Setup. Connecting an Android device to SonosNet allows you to have control anywhere you have Sonos speakers, even outside of WiFi range. Once enabled, the Android device will automatically connect to the closest Sonos speaker, not to your router’s WiFi, allowing greater control range due to the dedicated Sonos wireless network. This option is only available on Android devices.

Please note: Once the Android device is connected to SonosNet, high bandwidth usage on the device, such as streaming HD movies or downloading large files, could negatively impact Sonos’ performance.

Connecting your Android device to SonosNet:

– From the More tab, select Settings > Advanced Settings.

– Tap “Connect to SonosNet” and “Next.”

– Tap “Allow Connection” so it’s checked, and select “Done” to complete the connection.

Once the connection is allowed, SonosNet will be added to the list of available wireless networks. Please note that the Android operating system will determine which network to connect to, if there are other options than SonosNet. The Android device may use SonosNet or it may choose another network. To force use of SonosNet, forget any other networks your device may automatically connect to.

Disconnecting your Android device from SonosNet:

– From the More tab, select Settings > Advanced Settings.

– Tap “Connect to SonosNet” and “Next.”

– Tap “Allow Connection” so it’s unchecked, and select “Done” to disconnect your Android device from SonosNet.
