Unfortunately this QA doesn't work any more.


I have a play 5 and a play 1. If I set this, the play 5 works but the play 1 does not. How can I solve this? Do I have to adjust anything for that? So I uploaded the quick app 2 times and I changed the IP address for both. Greet Ronnie


Would I be correct when I say that it does not fully work with Sonos S2? Got a Sonos ARC and while it does read the current data, it does not perform any actions like mute, next, volume etc.


Thank you! Very good Quick App.. Is it possible to integrate Spotify Playlists in the future?


yes it works, we can talk about it on the forum if necessary ;)
