How to connect your phone to Sonos Roam using Bluetooth

The Sonos Roam is the second portable Bluetooth speaker from the multi-room audio company, but unlike the first – Sonos Move – it doesn’t have a physical Wi-Fi to Bluetooth toggle switch.

Instead there is one button next to the USB Type-C power port that controls both the power to the speaker and pairing, which means it’s not as simple to get the Sonos Roam into Bluetooth discovery mode and pair your phone as it is with the Move.

The speaker automatically transfers between Wi-Fi and Bluetooth as you move in and out of your home, but if you’re wondering how to put the it into Bluetooth mode and pair Sonos Roam with your phone in the first place, we’re here to help.
