For this guide, we'll be adding Google Play Music to the Sonos app. The general idea/steps will be the same no matter which service you're adding, but some things could be a bit different depending on which one it is. Without further ado, let's get started.

  1. Open the Sonos app on your phone.
  2. Tap the More button on the bottom navigation bar.
  3. Tap Add Music Services.
  4. Tap the music service you want to add (for this example, we're using Google Play Music).

  1. Tap Add to Sonos.
  2. Tap I already have an account.
  3. Tap Authorize.

  1. Type in the code shown on the last screen.
  2. Tap Next.
  3. Tap the account you want to use.
  4. Tap Allow.

  1. Go back to the Sonos app.
  2. Type in a name for your account.
  3. Tap Done at the top-right of the screen.

You're all set! Next time you open the Sonos app, tab the Browse button on the navigation bar to browse through music/podcasts from any of the services you've added. Have fun and happy streaming!
