How do I turn 2 or more Sonos speakers into a group?

You have 2 or more Sonos speakers in house and want to link them together. This way you ensure that they play the same music. This option is useful when you are giving a party or want to listen to the same music in several rooms at the same time. In the following steps I'll explain how to quickly and easily connect multiple speakers in a group.

You have now created a group. Once you choose this, you send music to all speakers within the group. If you want to add or remove speakers from the group, you can easily adapt them. Tap the Group button again and switch the desired check marks on or off. If you want to adjust the volume of an individual speaker, tap the volume bar once in the playback menu. In the next screen, adjust the volume of each speaker separately. Do you want to know how to make a stereo pair of 2 speakers? Then click on the button below.
