Control your Sonos system using Siri Shortcuts.

Orto allows you to teach Siri a phrase like: "Play My Discover Playlist in the Kitchen"

- Play a Favorite (My Sonos), in a particular room at a particular volume
- Set the volume of a group or speaker
- Break up speaker groups
- Stop one group or speaker
- Set Shuffle
- Stop all speakers
- Set TV input

Once you have setup Siri Shortcuts you can access them within the Apple Shortcuts app then mix your Sonos system with other smart devices to create the perfect scene.

What’s New

Version 3.4

We're putting this App out to pasture. It's being renamed as Orto Shortcuts Legacy. Although we won't be adding new features we will make sure it keeps working as long as possible.

Try out out the new version of the app under the name "Orto" on the App Store. It's like this one but with loads of extra ways to control your Sonos.

Should be able to set separate device volumes

Bought this app to run a Special “morning routine” shortcut, and kind of disappointed. Each morning, I set all speakers to one group, laundry room at one volume, bathroom at another, and other areas to low. Unfortunately this app only supports an “across the board” volume (not even relative to the volumes in the group) and sets all speakers to that exact percentage. Wish there could be some granularity!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. We've added this granularity to our new "Orto" app

A few bugs and awkward UI, but overall it does what it says

Looking for an easy way to control my Sonos system through Siri Shortcuts, and ran across this. I’ve also tried IFTTT, SonoSequncr, Simple Commands, and Yonomi. Orto is pretty much the easiest way to get shortcuts that actually work created. Sure, the UI isn’t the most straightforward, and a few bugs/quirks exist, but definitely worth the purchase.

Worth it

Brings a large degree of convenience to our Gen 1 Sonos set up. I do with there was a way to play specific playlists but outside that it’s nice to be able to use Siri intuitively with short phrases to get the system playing, stopping, volume changes etc.
