Once you have set up Move on your WiFi network, press the Bluetooth/WiFi mode button on the back of the speaker to switch to Bluetooth mode. The LED on top of the speaker will illuminate blue. To pair, select Move from the list of available devices on your phone. If it does not appear, press and hold the button.
The Sonos app will control your system on WiFi but not Bluetooth. To listen on Bluetooth, use a streaming service app, such as Spotify.
No. You must be connected to WiFi for the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa to work on Sonos. Voice control features are subject to regional availability.
Yes. You can pair two Moves on WiFi for stereo sound.
No. Because Move is designed to move around your home, pairing with Sub would result in mid and high frequencies in one room and bass in another for imbalanced sound and an inferior listening experience. You can, however, group Move with a system that includes Sub, such as a 5.1 home theater setup.
An IP rating is an international standard that defines how effectively electrical enclosures resist intrusion from foreign elements, such as dust and moisture. The numbers that follow “IP” have specific meanings. The first ranges from 1-7 and defines the degree of protection from foreign elements, such as dust. The second ranges from 1-9 and defines the degree of protection from various forms of moisture, including sprays, drips, and submersion.
Move is rated IP56, meaning it is protected from very fine particles, such as dust, and liquid spray, including humidity, rain, and snowfall.
No. The speaker itself was designed for outdoor use and is therefore resistant to water, dust, and other elements. The charging base, however, should only be used indoors.
Move’s battery will last for up to 11 hours of uninterrupted playback. Pausing, volume level, Bluetooth, heat exposure, and other factors will cause battery life to fluctuate. If left off the charging base and unused, the battery will last about 120 hours.
The battery should last about three years or 900 charges, after which you can purchase a replacement battery.
Move's microphones detect what you're playing and measure the frequency response from your surroundings. Using software, the speaker then adjusts its EQ for perfectly balanced sound.
No. The microphones must be on for auto Trueplay to work.
Yes. The far-field microphones in the speaker detect your voice from any direction. You can speak at a natural volume to activate supported voice commands.
Yes. Simply touch the microphone icon and the light will turn off indicating that the microphones are inactive. The light is hardwired so you know that the microphones are only active when it is illuminated.
Currently there are no feature differences between Sonos One Gen 2 and the original version. The original Sonos One will continue to support all its current features, and more, in the future. Over time, however, the increased memory, Bluetooth Low Energy, and processing power may allow us to bring new product experiences to the Gen 2 version that the original will not be able to support. That said, we have no specific Gen 2-only features planned at this time.
Yes, the Gen 2 works seamlessly with the original Sonos One as a stereo pair or home cinema surrounds.
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) was first introduced with Sonos Beam, and now we are bringing it to Sonos One Gen 2. Just like with Beam, BLE can be used to communicate temporarily with your phone or tablet to simplify the first-time setup process. BLE does not support audio streaming. Once setup is done, Sonos One Gen 2 streams and updates via your WiFi just like the original Sonos One.
Sonos One Gen 2 is marked as “Gen 2” on the product label underneath the speaker. The original Sonos One only has “One” on the product label.
