Press the Power button to turn on your Sonos Roam.

  1. Make sure Bluetooth functionality is enabled on the device you want to connect to the Sonos Roam Bluetooth speaker, and then view the list of available Bluetooth devices you can connect to. For example, on an iPhone, you would navigate to “Settings” and then “Bluetooth” to display the Bluetooth screen, and then slide the toggle to the right of Bluetooth to the right side of the screen to ensure it is enabled. On the most recent version of Android, you would need to go into the Settings app on your device, tap “Connections,” tap “Bluetooth” and then make sure the Bluetooth toggle is turned on.
