Step 1: Unbox and plug it in
First, unbox the speaker and place it where you’ll want it to be for the foreseeable future and place the speaker close enough to your router so that the Wi-Fi signal is strong (or alternatively, near a range-improving Sonos Boost).
Step 2: Download the Sonos app
You’ll then need to download the Sonos app. If you’re on PC or Mac, open your web browser and go to where you’ll be able to download the app.
Step 3: Choose your setup type
Once you’ve installed the app, open it and press ‘Set up a new Sonos system’. You’ll be asked what sort of setup you want to go through, then just press ‘Standard Setup’ – this for anyone connecting over a Wi-Fi network.
Step 4: Select your speakers
If your smartphone, tablet, or computer is connected to the Wi-Fi network, you should be able to see any available Sonos speakers that are in your home. If you have multiple speakers, you can choose which one you want to set up first by swiping between them on your screen.
Step 5: Put your speakers into ‘Join’ mode
The app will then ask you to press a couple of buttons on the Sonos speaker at the same time – the buttons depend on the speaker you have. This will create a temporary Wi-Fi network for your device to connect to, allowing the setup to work.
Step 6: Connect to the Wi-Fi network
Once you’ve pressed the buttons, you’ll hear a chime, and the speaker will show a flashing orange light. The app will ask you to confirm that you see this, to connect, go to your device’s Wi-Fi settings and choose ‘Sonos’. Once you’re connected, go back to the Sonos app and continue. You may be prompted for a password.

Once that’s done, you can select a name for your new Sonos speaker.
Step 7: Add more speakers if you have them
If you want to set up a second speaker (or even more, you moneybags), hit ‘Add Another Player’, and go through the setup process again. You’ll need to assign a name to each new speaker, just like you did before.

Once that’s done, all your speakers will be connected to your Wi-Fi system, and you’ll be able to use the Sonos app to play music on all of your connected speakers.
