This widget solves the problem all Sonos users have: to control a list of all your S1 and S2 zones from your notification screen without the need to unlock your iPhone or launch the Sonos app.

SonoControls gives you Sonos volume and track controls for ALL your zones, as a widget on your Today Notification screen. This widget is accessible on your WiFi network, even when your Sonos is not playing! Great to come home and start your music, without the need to unlock your iPhone or launch the Sonos app.

Just swipe and control your Sonos system.
• Control all your Sonos speakers from the Today Notification screen
• Volume up, down, mute, play, pause, next, previous track
• Works great together with the official Sonos app! It adds a handy widget to your Today screen, even when your iPhone is locked
• Support for both S1 and S2, all in the same app
• Need to switch playlists? Simply tap the track/artist name text to start the official Sonos app (when installed)
• SonoControls is an independent and unofficial app, and is not affiliated with Sonos in any way.
• Clean layout with nicely sized controls and album artwork
• Works with both a single or multiple controllers, grouped and paired
• Show or hide speakers. Pick the speakers you'd like to see in your widget, and change the order of your speakers
• Show grouped speakers as a group, or as individual speakers
• The widget scales size to fit on the screen, but you can also pick your favourite size manually
• Set the volume precision to your taste, and limit the maximum volume to protect your ears
• Designed and built by somebody who uses his own Sonos system daily!
• No configuration needed, the app finds your Sonos system automatically. If you group or ungroup controllers with the Sonos app, just use the refresh button in the SonoControls app to see the new grouping
• Works for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch
• Some Sonos network configurations do need manual IP address configuration, which is quite easily done in the App, tab settings.


Versie 2.1

• S1 and S2 speakers are displayed together in one app, in one list. SonoControls finds them all!
• The volume level number uses a bit larger font size in the widget. Thanks for the suggestion GzrD (UK app review).
• Widget size "small" now also displays room name in the label, just like size "medium". Thanks for the suggestion Matt (via email).
• Widget size "medium" is a fraction smaller so 4 speakers also fit on a 4.7 inch screen widget (iPhone 6/7/8/new SE)
• A few bugs have been fixed.

Finally a widget for Sonos, works like a charm. I see my three different rooms and I am able to change volume without unlocking my phone. The fifth star will come when in the future the IOS 14 widget style is available 🤓. Good job!!

Good to hear that, thanks. The widget is still in iOS 13 style. This is a side project for me, and I still need to find the time for a complete iOS 14 redesign of the widget :)

This setup video shows a screen recording of how to use the app and widget after an install on iPhone with iOS 15.2:

Notice the "edit" and "customize" buttons at the button of the widget list in the video, this is how you can access classic style widgets, which is used in SonoControls.

Hi, tnx for the feedback. In iOS 14/15, the widgets have changed, but iOS 13-style widgets are still supported. The widget is using the classic iOS 13 style and it works on iOS 14/15. I've put up a sticky help post with step-by-step instructions here: . You can also send an email to and I will help you.
