FAQ

How do I use Bluetooth?
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.
What does the Sonos app do on Bluetooth?
The Sonos app will control your system on WiFi but not Bluetooth. To listen on Bluetooth, use a streaming service app, such as Spotify.
Does voice control work on Bluetooth?
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.
Can I stereo pair Move?
Yes. You can pair two Moves on WiFi for stereo sound.
Can I use two Moves as home theater surrounds?
No.
Does Move pair with Sub?
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.
What does the IP56 rating mean?
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.
Is the charging base weather resistant?
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.
Can I take Move to the beach?
Yes.
How long does the battery last?
Move’s battery will last for up to 10 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.
What’s the lifespan of Move's lithium-ion battery?
The battery should last about three years or 900 charges, after which you can purchase a replacement battery.
How does auto Trueplay work?
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.
Will auto Trueplay work if the microphones are off?
No. The microphones must be on for auto Trueplay to work.
Do the microphones hear commands when audio is playing?
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.
Can I turn the microphones off?
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.
How do the new processor and increased memory affect the product experience?
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.
Will Sonos One Gen 2 work in stereo pair and as surrounds with the original Sonos One?
Yes, the Gen 2 works seamlessly with the original Sonos One as a stereo pair or home cinema surrounds.
How does Sonos One Gen 2 use Bluetooth Low Energy?
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.
How can I tell which version I have?
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.

Reviews

Can't I just use my personal music streaming subscription?
You’ll still have to pay licensing fees to use music in your business. Additionally, if you want to get rid of the ads that interrupt the music, you’ll need to pay for a premium subscription on most services. It’s usually more cost effective to subscribe to a music streaming service for business use.
Why do I need a commercial music streaming service?
Composers, musicians, and artists deserve fair compensation, especially when their music offers extra value to your business. As a business owner, you’re legally responsible for paying license fees for music you play in your venue.
What is considered a public performance?
The Copyright Law of the United States defines a public performance of music as, “Music performed in a place open to the public or at any place where a substantial number of persons outside of a normal circle of a family and its social acquaintances is gathered.”
What are Performance Rights Organizations?
BMI, ASCAP, and SESAC are known as the Performance Rights Organizations (PROs) that represent songwriters and music publishers in the United States. If you play music licensed by one of these organizations and don’t have a license from them, you can potentially be held liable for copyright infringement, which can result in thousands of dollars of liability as well as costly legal fees.
