Sonos is one of the best audio products manufacturers that provide a reliable wireless audio system with brilliant sound. However, despite being a well-built sound system, it also comes with several problems.

As it’s been said that everything has its ups and downs, and Sonos is no exception. Though it offers excellent sound in your room by room, the service is disrupted when there comes to its update issue.

And, this frequent update process of Sonos is the biggest complaint of most Sonos users. Yet, as Sonos adds new product features and releases them now and then, the controller devices and apps want to update more frequently.

However, you can avert this more frequent update system if you take some necessary steps and update your Sonos in a regular disciplined way.

So, in this article, I will discuss how often you should update it to help you avoid frequently updating issues.

How often does Sonos update?

Well, I’d say that how often Sonos is updated entirely depends on how you want to update the system, as there is an auto-update option. Yet, you should organize your Sonos update every 3-4 months.

This will help you to update the system periodically. But, before updating, it is important to know if there are any new products available or not.

Most of the time your PCs or your ANDROID devices want to be up to date since Sonos releases cool new features. So you can get better functional services and fix bugs.

Besides, you should also know that the App updates and the Sonos hardware system updates are completely different and unique to the controller devices.

Most of the Sonos updates require the hardware system to be updated. And then, it requires App updates on each of your controller devices.

Alright, as I mentioned before about the auto-update option, if you want to update your Sonos automatically, you can do it in a scheduled way by following two-hour periods.

This auto-update system ensures that you have all the new latest features as well as security updates.

However, if you don’t want it, just turn off the automatic updates system and also the update notifications on not only your mobile devices but also on the Sonos App.

Well, I should also remind you one thing if you are running a beta, you may experience more frequent update threads.

 Why does Sonos update so often?

The Sonos update process is a common issue that most users have faced. But, there are some reasons that force Sonos to update so often.

One of the main reasons for updating Sonos more frequently is if you turn on the auto-update option through advanced settings. This will force you to update the controller devices’ Apps.

Not only that but also, if you install any new controller devices or purchase any new products while switching off the Sonos updates, it will give you update threads by force.

Besides, as they release new products so often and also you want a new code with cool features, there come constant Sonos updates.

Furthermore, if there is a fixed IP address issue, it will also lead to your Sonos update. And, last but not least thing is that if one or more of your player units aren’t connected to the system while updating Sonos, it will leave those units out of the update process.

So, when those units come back online, it will ultimately lead to updating their system.

How long does the Sonos update take?

Updating the Sonos system can be done in two ways: automatically and manually. And, usually, it takes only about 5 minutes to update the Sonos system.

When a Sonos update is available for any of your controller devices no matter if it’s on your PC or your ANDROID mobile device, you can update it by turning on your auto-update options. This will automatically update Sonos.

Besides, you can do it manually by checking the Sonos update notification. If you find out that there’s a new update available, just follow the steps to update your Sonos speakers.

However, if you are updating Sonos automatically, I’d recommend you do that by tapping scheduled. It will help you to prevent unwanted update postponed issues.

 Do I need to update my Sonos?

Yes, it is necessary to keep your Sonos system updated.  This updated system provides you access to any new products with cool features.

Besides, you will get the latest music services as well as newly released player unit updates. The cool features prompt you to fix the uncool things and permit you to access the music easily.

So, without updating the Sonos system, it is really tough to conform to doing these cool changes all the time.

Not only that but also it updates your Sonos security system. Otherwise, you may get a thread and also experience that the Sonos system loses its current functionality.

Moreover, you also don’t want to wait for a long time to fix the bug. So, regularly updating Sonos is essential that help you fix the bugs easily.
