Using Sonos to Listen to Pandora

 

You can group, edit, control and stream to your Sonos device directly from the Pandora app.

To do that, make sure you're connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Sonos device, and open the Pandora app.
 

Tap the casting button on the Now Playing screen to initiate a connection with your Sonos device.
Once you've connected successfully, the casting icon will appear filled in,

and a new navigation screen (or "device shelf") will appear. This shelf will allow you to edit your Sonos groups, select which devices to play through, or control the volume of your devices.

  • To edit the group of currently playing devices click on Show Group.
  • To make changes to other groups click Edit.

Create New Stations from Sonos

You can also create new stations, edit current stations and control your Sonos device directly from your Pandora app.

Using Sonos with Alexa Voice Control

 

As long as you initiate your music from the Pandora or Sonos apps, you'll be able to use Alexa to control your music fully.

 

However, if you ask Alexa to start playing Pandora, she'll only be able to play your radio stations, not any on-demand content. As a result, you'll lack some of the features of your subscription if you start listening this way.

 

For more information on using Alexa and Sonos to control Pandora, this article on Sonos' website may help.
