Sonos Roam Bluetooth Pairing: A Comprehensive Guide

Summary: Bluetooth pairing is one of the coolest features of the Sonos Roam. All you have to do is press and hold the power button on the speaker for 2 seconds until you hear two chimes before releasing. You should see a blue light blinking as an indication that the device is ready for pairing.

With Sonos, you can listen to your music anywhere in your house.

It offers a modern HiFi system which is an alternative to large speakers that you’ve probably had at your gran’s home.

Indeed, Sonos is the current market leader offering complete flexibility and the ability to stream music to multiple rooms.

And yes, it comes with Bluetooth pairing allowing you to connect the speaker to your TV, laptop, smartphones, or tablets.

    The easiest thing to do is to check power, make sure the device is in Bluetooth mode, and move the Sonos and your Bluetooth device to a different room.

    Sonos portable products must be in Bluetooth discovery mode when pairing with Sonos for the first time. When in Bluetooth discovery mode, your portable Sonos Roam’s status LED will flash blue. 

    If your Sono Roam is in sleep mode or turned off, you won’t be able to connect via Bluetooth.

    Bearn in mind, Bluetooth devices and portable Sonos products must be close to each other for them to connect. Distance between Bluetooth devices affects connection strength.

    If you think something nearby is interfering with the Bluetooth signal, move your portable Sonos product and your Bluetooth device to another room and try pairing again.

    Can you connect multiple Sonos Roam on Bluetooth?

    The short answer is yes, but only over Wi-Fi.

    Unfortunately, you can’t pair two Roams over Bluetooth in a stereo pair, which is something several other portable Bluetooth speakers can do.

    To pair Sonos Roam with other speaker, go to the Sonos app and group your Roam speaker with other Sonos speaker in the same multi-room system.

    How do I connect my phone to Sonos?
