Using the Sonos Connection with SimpleCommands




SimpleCommands provides almost all of the features you enjoy on the Sonos app, but with ubiquitous and simplified control.

Smart Speakers

Play/pause music, adjust your speaker's volume and switch tracks all from the SimpleCommands app or SimpleCommands Companions. You can also play customized noises on the Sonos speakers listed in the 'Voice Clips' section below.

Voice Clips

Voice Clips are available with certain types of Sonos speakers (listed below). Voice Clips allow you to play customized notifications from your smart speakers, such as announcing "The kids are home!" when your kids pull up the driveway.

  • Sonos One (not to be confused with the 1)
  • Sonos 5
  • Any Ikea Symfonisk Sonos device
  • Sonos Beam


Your Sonos Items are the names of the smart devices in your Sonos account. If the Item name is not to your liking you can add a SimpleName and use that name instead.
