You can reset your Sonos speaker by disconnecting your device, and then holding the top two buttons while you reconnect it.
Resetting your Sonos speaker like this will delete your speaker's personal information, previous settings, and any downloaded music.
You may need to reset your Sonos speaker if you're giving it to someone else, or you simply want to restore it to its original settings.
Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories.
No matter how long you've owned your Sonos speaker, you can always reset it.
A reset is especially helpful if you're giving your speaker to a friend or family member, looking to resell it, or want to fix bugs.
However, note that this is different than rebooting your system by unplugging it and plugging it back in. Unlike a simple reboot, a factory reset will permanently erase all of your speaker's information, settings, and music.
After following the steps below, your Sonos device will be restored to its factory conditions.
Check out the products mentioned in this article:
Sonos One (From $195 at Amazon)
Sonos One SL (From $175 at Amazon)
Sonos Five (From $499.99 at Amazon)
Sonos Move Amazon (From $399 at Amazon)
How to complete Sonos factory reset
1. Unplug your Sonos speaker to turn it off. Or if it's a battery-operated Sonos Move, take it off its charging base and turn the device off.
2. Locate the two buttons on the top of your device and hold them down. Depending on your device, the buttons will be different — they might be "Join," "Play/Pause," or "Mute." It doesn't matter what they do.
On the Sonos Move, instead of holding the top two buttons, just hold down the "Join" button.
3. Plug your device back in, or place it into its charging cradle, while you're still holding the buttons. Your Sonos' light will blink orange and white, and then turn green.
4. Once the light turns green, let go of the buttons. The green light should still be on, which means it's been successfully reset to factory condition.
5. You can then head to the Sonos app where you'll be prompted to set up a new product. Tap "Set up this product" and then follow the onscreen instructions to set it up.

This week: What's one more decade when you're Reed Hastings?
"To be totally clear, I'm in for a decade."
So said newly appointed Netflix co-CEO Reed Hastings during the company's quarterly earnings call on Thursday. Hastings will now share the top job with the company's longtime content boss Ted Sarandos, but his message was clear: He's not going anywhere.
To anyone who's looked at the dismal track record of such dual-CEO arrangements lately, Hastings' promise may seem improbable. Whether it's Hastings or Sarandos, one of the pair is unlikely to still be in the job 10 years from now. But Hastings has proven far more prescient than almost any other business leader, so we decided to take a look at what the world will look like in 2030, as Hastings prepares to retire.
The population of the Earth will be close to 9 billion, according to UN estimates, with 43 "megacities" including India's "Greater Delhi" and its 39 million residents.
Computers will possess artificial intelligence equal to human intelligence, says famed futurist Ray Kurzweil. And China will be the world leader in AI, using it to dominate the military, public governance, and industrial production — at least, that's if China's "Made in China 2025" plan succeeds.
Self driving cars and Flying taxis will ferry people around cities in places like Japan, Korea, and Dubai. But our homes and office buildings will no longer have windows (and your eyesight will suffer greatly) due to strict climate emission standards — if you believe President Trump's recent prophecies.
And the first base for humans living on Mars will by then be in its third year of existence, Elon Musk says.
In short, Netflix will have a giant multiplanetary addressable market to stream videos to (or whatever gets streamed at that point), just as the 69-year-old Hastings hangs up his spurs. I'm not sure if "Grace and Frankie" will still be in production, though.
Of course, you don't have to wait until 2030 to get a taste of the future.
As Eugene Kim reports, Amazon's secret project building a home robot for consumers is getting closer to reality. There's even a sales price — potentially exceeding $1,000 — already under discussion.
It would make the waist-high robot code-named "Vesta" and resembling a "Roomba vacuum-cleaner in human form" the most expensive gadget in Amazon's hardware closet. Unlike the unwanted crumbs sucked up by a Roomba, however, the Amazon robot might roam your house hoovering up an assortment of private data — a risky proposition for any tech company these days.
So what's Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos thinking? Besides Bezos' thing for bots, it's not entirely clear what's motivating this initiative. Some speculate the Vesta could test the potential for Amazon to expand its Alexa voice assistants into the market for higher-priced luxury goods, while simultaneously letting Amazon flex its technical chops.
Read Eugene's full story on Amazon's robot here.
Alphabet's Verily goes to Code Red
Not far from Amazon's Lab126 office where the Vesta robot is being developed, Google's sister company Verily has been operating in "Code Red."
As Hugh Langley reports, Code Red is the name for Verily's efforts involving the coronavirus. And according to insiders that Hugh spoke to, it has not exactly been smooth sailing. Seven day weeks of 12-hour days, constant fire drills, and a culture of fear rule the organization. Speaking out is not only discouraged, it is punished.

Earnings season surprises
Snap's Q2 results caused a bit of a shiver among investors on Tuesday. Not because the recovery from the coronavirus pandemic is taking longer than expected, as IBM attested on Monday, but because the lockdowns didn't deliver the sustained levels of user engagement that Snap was banking on.
"This initial lift dissipated faster than we anticipated as shelter in place conditions persisted," Snap CFO Derek Andersen, explaining the shortfall in Q2's daily active users, said. (The report came out on the same day that Business Insider's Paige Leskin reported that Snap has hired an outside law firm to investigate allegations of discrimination.)

Snapshot: Boom times for virtual influencers
Just when social-media influencers were set to rule the world, the pandemic — and its many disruptions — has put their ascendancy on hold. But, lest marketers be without an influential face to pitch their wares, a special breed of "virtual influencer" has rushed in to fill the void.
Lil Miquela, pictured below, signed a deal with legendary Hollywood talent agency CAA in May. Unlike her flesh-and-blood counterparts, Miquela doesn't stop producing new content just because of a virus, explains Kara Weber, president of Brud, the virtual influencer startup that created the celebrity avatar.
"During the COVID pandemic when other artists can't go anywhere, Miquela can be anywhere," Weber said, noting her electronic client's growing popularity with brands seeking to connect with consumers in the "brave new world where we're all living inside our homes."

Chinese tech investors are increasingly looking for a way to gain access to India’s untapped potential, and their approach has been to bet on local talent to best approach the market.“From 1990 to 2014, aggregate Chinese [foreign direct investment] in India was less than $2 billion.From 2012 to 2016 or 2017 that number was $6 billion to $7 billion,” mostly led by China’s tech giants like Alibaba and Tencent, said Dev Lewis, a researcher at Hong Kong-based think tank Digital Asia Hub during a TechNode Emerge panel at TechCrunch Shenzhen on Monday.Chinese investor interest in India is primarily centered around e-commerce and social media, said Richard Xu, who heads the US operations of Grand View Capital, a New York investment bank.Unlike US tech giants, Chinese companies often choose to invest in local startups rather than rolling out their products straight from the Chinese market, because of the differences between the two markets.“[Chinese investors are] not saying let’s be the Facebook of India.
Now that all the big 2019 phones have been released, it’s time to look forward to next year’s handsets, and if these early leaks are any indication, the Galaxy S11 could be in line for a huge upgrade in the battery department.According to noted Samsung leaker Ice Universe, Samsung’s next batch of flagship smartphones may get significantly larger batteries, with even the smallest of the bunch – the Galaxy S11e – featuring up to a 4,000mAh power pack.Compared to the 3,100 mAh battery used in the current Galaxy S10e, that would be an improvement of nearly 30 per cent in overall battery capacity.As for bigger versions of the Galaxy S11, Ice Universe says the S11+’s battery could be as large as 5,000 mAh, which would also be a pretty big jump up from the 4,100 mAh battery in the S10+.But what’s more important than the increased size of the S11's batteries, is what Samsung could do with all the extra juice.While other phones like the OnePlus 7 Pro, Pixel 4, and others upgraded to 90Hz displays in 2019, none of Samsung’s phones this year had displays with high refresh rates, despite Samsung being the manufacturer responsible for making the panels featured in many of its competitors.
