    fyi your link at the bottom doesnt work. Also I’m very interested to know how much of Soundcloud’s new cookie policy carries over to sonos?

      Thanks for the heads up. The link has been fixed, let us know if you run into further issue with this and we’ll be happy to help.

    Yeeeeeees, Finally! Thank you Sonos!

  • Evert Maat

    If you choose a category of music, you only can select one song at the time and add it to the play list. Would be great if you could play a category at random.

      Hello Evert,

      Great feedback. I’d encourage you to visit https://ask.sonos.com/sonos and post it as an ‘Idea’ so other like yourself can add feedback and vote for this feature.

    My feature request has finally been answered! Brilliant news, I spend most of my time with SoundCloud playing in the background.

    When I try to start the SoundCloud app on the Sonos controller for my Mac it says that there was a problem authorizing my account and that’s what it keeps saying. Help!

      Hi Victor, you’ll want to make sure your system is updated under Manage > Check for Software Updated. If you’re having trouble getting your account authorized, can you please give us a call to work live with a technician? http://www.sonos.com/contact Thanks

        Hi I get exactly the same error – any ideas?

  • chrisq

    How do you get Soundcloud on the Windows Desktop App?

    • http://www.sonos.com/support Sonos Support Team

      Hi Chrisq, make sure your Sonos Desktop Controller is updated by going to Manage > Check for Updates. After that, you can select Add Music Services from the bottom of the Music Source pane, on the right side, or go to Manage > Service Settings. You’ll find SoundCloud inside the Sonos Labs section as it’s still in beta. If you’re having trouble adding your account can you please give us a call to work live with a technician? http://www.sonos.com/contact
