A major update for your Sonos speakers is available now
Lyd works with both Sonos software versions (S1 & S2). For more info read the section below.
For most of the Lyd users the Sonos update to S2 should not create any issues.
If you cannot access your speakers after your update. The following steps might help resolving this issue.
Sometimes the Apple Watch refuses to install new Apps. It's a mystery and according to Apple the easieset solution to this is to restart your Apple Watch and your iPhone. An even better solution is to open the App Store App on your Apple Watch and search for Lyd there. The installation directly on the Apple Watch works in most cases.
Select the group/room. Than tap on the more () button and select "Change music". You can select music from your Sonos Playlists / Sonos favorites. To sort the list differently press firmly on the screen. To add music here use the official Sonos App and add add to "My Sonos" or "Sonos favorites". This can be done with Albums, playlists, stations, songs, audiobooks. Podcast stations cannot be added at the moment
Select a room on which you would like to play an voice message. The room can be part of a group. Then tap the button on the bottom left and select "Voice message". You can record the message (up to 30s). Then you can select on which speaker in the group you would like to play the message. Caution: Voice messages are only supported on those speakers and newer: Sonos One, Amp, Play:5 (gen 2), Five, Beam, One SL, Move, und die IKEA SYMFONISK Tischlampe und SYMFONISK Regallautsprecher.
After recording the message it must be transmitted to my server. The sonos speaker gets a random access code and downloads the message. After this, the message is deleted completely. Nobody, not even me, is able to access your recordings, because they are protected by a password and very short lived.
To group Sonos rooms select the room whichs music you want to share across other rooms. Than tap on the more button and select "Manage group". Now you can select all rooms that should play the same music and tap the "Done" button at the bottom.
Since version 2.0 Lyd offers two different types of complications:
1. Complications that just open the app
2. Complications with text that show the currently playing rooms
For every watch face with complications you can find one for Lyd.
Since version 2.0 Lyd is an independant Apple Watch App.
This means you can delete the iPhone App and keep Lyd on your Apple Watch.
The iPhone App is no longer needed, but it can still be used for performing the initial setup.
Before version 2.0: Sometimes sync between iOS and watchOS fails. Please set both devices to flight mode for some time and try again afterward.
If this does not solve the issue: Restart both devices.
Version 2.0 or later: Use the QR Code login or the login directly on the Watch
This issues occurred with version 1.2.2 and the Sonos update 10.4. The recent update 1.2.3 fixes these issues. Your installed version can be shown on the main menu in the Watch App. Open it by using the button with the three dots
This is an issue that could have multiple sources. I will give a list of them:
To edit a group or to change the music there is an extra menu hidden behind a force touch press on the control screen. So when you have selected a room press hard on your Apple Watch screen. It will open a new menu.
I am really sorry to loose you as a customer.
