What services are available in my country?

The Sonos app will only display music services that are available in your location. Follow the steps above to navigate to the list of music services in the controller and see what’s available.

Missing ‘Add Music Services’ menu

If you do not see the option to ‘Add Music Services’ on your Sonos app, the version of the app you are running likely needs an update. Check out our article on updating: How to update your Sonos system.

If you’re unable to update the app, or it is already up to date, make sure you are running a supported controller. Some older software versions may still have basic control of your system, but will not be able to change settings or manage services.

For a full list of controller support, see the list here: Controller Requirements.

If your device is not fully supported by Sonos, you will need to use another device with the Sonos app installed to add your music service account.

If you do not see a music service listed

If you know a particular music service is compatible with Sonos and available in your location, but it is not appearing in the list of music services to add, ensure your system is registered to the correct geographic location. You can check which country your system is registered to by following the steps outlined in our article: Missing music services

If you are using a desktop controller, you can check if the missing music service is in Beta by going to “Add Music Services” and selecting “Sonos Labs” at the bottom of the list.
