• Change the volume of Sonos groups (rooms)
• Add or remove speakers from a group
• Start playlists and radio stations
• Automatic detection of your Sonos speakers
• VoiceOver support
• Control the volume of every speaker in a group
• The main menu shows which rooms are playing
• Siri Watch Face integration
• Apple Watch complications are available
• Multiple Sonos households are supported

Lyd [ly:d] is Norwegian and translates to "sound" in English

Warning: Lyd only works if you have an Apple Watch (watchOS 4 or newer). A Sonos system is mandatory.
You cannot control other wireless speakers than Sonos.

Update....Not what looking for

Update: The app slowly appears to be more than I thought. It's not intuitive, but I am beginning to start up the Sonos and change the rooms it's playing. Now I just need to figure out how to change stations/playlist. Changed my rating from 1 to 4 stars.

This app controls the Sonos only if most recently controlled by iPhone. I control my Sonos from my iPhone and my iPad. If I have it started on my iPad, I cannot do ANYTHING with this app unless I go get my phone. I was trying to remove that step from my life. Bummed.

Developer Response ,

Hi,
Thank you for your review.
The app is able to control your music no matter where you habe started it. One thing that may be an issue is that the app gets slow when the watch is connected to your iPhone and your iPhone is far away. All the data will be transferred via Bluetooth to your iPhone first and sent to Sonos afterwards. If you have issues with the app controlling Sonos you can disconnect your watch by deactivating Bluetooth on your iPhone. This will make controlling and your Apple Watch much faster as it connects to your WiFi.

I hope that helps. If not you can always send me an email:
alex@lyd-for-sonos.app

Kind regards,
Alexander Heinrich

Nice, but missing one feature

This app does a nice job of controlling my Sonos speakers, but one thing I would like to see is the ability to rewind by 15 seconds or 30 seconds. Where I would find this useful is when I am listing to Podcasts through Pocketcasts. I find myself wanting to back up a bit to catch something I missed. Maybe this feature is there, but I’m missing it? Otherwise, nice app.

Thank you for your review.
Your idea can be a nice addition and I will check if I can add it in the next update.

Kind regards

Very Happy with App

It works, and works well, all for $.99. The Watch integration is well done: the fact that a user can control their Sonos system as an ever-present Watch “Complication“ is handy, and far superior to having to reach for your iPhone every time you want to mute your audio or select different rooms or volumes.

The app directions are clear: just remember to open the app on your iPhone prior do your first use to complete the set up and syncing with your Sonos system before you attempt to use it on the Watch.

I also appreciate that on the information page the developer includes complete contact information.

Many Sonos systems users have commented that it is puzzling why the standard Sonos app does not include watch integration. Go figure. In the meantime this does the trick nicely.
