Sonos One and Play:1 both have Wi-Fi. I mean a practical option not having to press buttons and reconfigure, etc. Airplay 2 is software only no hardware required. The list includes , , , and the second-gen any Sonos speaker with touch controls. It may take 10-15 minutes after downloading the app for the speakers to appear. Unlike you I cannot see my Play:1s in order to group via airplay. Bringing out some kind of connect like device compatible with Airplay 2 that can speak to the Playbar would probably be the most logical solution if the Playbar can't handle it natively.
Or the Play:5, or even the One? Airplay Sonos will no longer be an issue when you use these three methods. I understand older speakers are not compatible, clearly. But Sonos has made enough progress to have finalized a list of which of speakers will get it. Sonos does not include Bluetooth capability in their speakers, so if you want to link your computer to one of their speakers and listen to the audio from YouTube or Netflix, you're pretty much out of luck. How can Sonos be misleading about something they never said? Buying a Sonos One just to group with the Playbar on mute is a very expensive way round. And calling Sonos customer hostile a company that hasn't obsoleted a piece of equipment in its 10 year history is unfounded as well. When prompted, tap Add Accessory and follow the instructions to add your Sonos One speaker.
Does this mean Siri on the Sonos One and Sonos Beam? Each has the networking and processing capacity to run the update. Sonos has a reputation for lengthy product support, and even its oldest products still work with many of its newest features. Why give Airplay to the Playbase when you can force people to buy a Beam? The Sonos app makes managing multiple speakers a breeze, and once you've logged into your streaming services through the app finding all your favorite music is simple. If you cant use the Apple Music app its actually redundant beyond streaming sound from video on an iPhone ipad. You simply place the Sonos player in any room in the house, and then place the speakers all around the house.
AirPlay 2 works in a similar way. Newer players have the needed hardware. However, bubble well and truely burst by twitter support confirming it only works on newest devices - the play5 gen 2, and play base.

All you need is one supported model in order to use AirPlay 2, then that speaker will distribute the audio to your other speakers.

I can live with it if I can find a way to make the Ones work. My understanding is that the One only added microphones and a different driver. At this point you can group other non-AirPlay 2 Sonos speakers with the supported one, as shown below. You refer to your stereo pair of play:1s as 'living room' but your screenshot does not have a 'living room', it has 'tv room'. You can also ask Siri to play tunes for you. That seems to me to be the easiest answer, although you may not like my idea. With AirPlay 2, you can effortlessly stream just about any sound from your iPhone or iPad to.
The One uses the Amazon Alexa personal assistant, meaning you'll also be able to do most things Alexa can do through your Sonos speaker, such as ask her to order an Uber, turn your living room lights red, or what the weather is like. Airplay 2 doesn't work at all the ones don't show up. The Play:1 is a solid choice for a home speaker. Plus better sound quality, no snooping! When you group one of these Airplay-enabled speakers with older Sonos devices, you can bring AirPlay capabilities to your entire Sonos system. Unlike you I cannot see my Play:1s in order to group via airplay. Just the way I like it!

Now it turns out special hardware was required. I'll be selling mine next week and will use headphones until something better comes along. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this product! Managing multiple speakers and streaming via WiFi works much better with the Sonos app than with the Bose apps. Just the way I like it! If you want to use Airport Express on a Sonos Sound System, then here are the steps to follow: Step 1 Connect Airport Express to the Sonos Stereo component or speakers using the line-in port. They should be able to add it to the app. For audio quality, it delivers. If you're looking for a single, small speaker, however, we think the Bose Soundtouch 10 is a better option with its more versatile connection options.
