If you have an Apple Music account: Adding an additional Mac or Windows PC is similar to the initial signup process for i Tunes Match users; it's also a great way to unify a music library if you've been accidentally building separate collections on your personal and work machines — once you enable i Cloud Music Library on both machines, you can download all the songs from your secondary PC or Mac onto your primary computer.

To work, the Sonos Controller app needs to be on a device that’s using the same internet connection as your Sonos speaker.

That means if your phone is connected to mobile internet – or another Wi-Fi network – that isn’t your home internet, it won’t work with the Sonos speaker.

Note: Currently, you'll need an i Tunes library with 100,000 songs or less in it for i Cloud Music Library to work correctly; if you have too many songs, here's how to create a secondary i Tunes library. Access to your Mac's library on any of your other devices (up to 10), for one. i Cloud Music Library may give you copies of your songs in the cloud, but it is in no way a backup service.

If you're an Apple Music subscriber, it also allows you to add songs and playlists from the subscription catalog to your library; you can then save those tracks for offline play. So please, heed our warning: Make sure you have a complete, local copy of all of your music on your primary computer (or external hard drive) before turning on i Cloud Music Library.

If you'd rather avoid that, you can disable automatic downloads on your devices, or only enable the Use Cellular Data switch when needed.
