Update Issues

Common solutions

Retry the update

Try starting the update again from the Sonos app. If you control Sonos with more than one device, you can also retry the update using a different Sonos app.

Reboot your router

Unplug your router from power, wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in. When your network is back online, try updating Sonos one more time.

Reboot your Sonos products

Reboot each Sonos product in your home by unplugging the power cable, waiting 10 seconds, then plugging it back in. If you have a Sonos Move or Roam, press and hold the power button for at least five seconds, wait 10 seconds, then press the power button to power it back on. Once you have rebooted all of your Sonos products, check to make sure they all show up in your Sonos app, then attempt the update again.

Reduce the distance to your router

If your mobile device or laptop has a weak WiFi signal, the Sonos app can have trouble going through the update process. Try moving closer to the router and trying the update again.
