Customize root browse

You can customize the way users see the first container of your music service when they browse into it on the Sonos app. This is known as the root browse container. On larger devices such as tablets with screens 7 inches high or larger, the app’s default is to display icons as a grid. On devices smaller than 7 inches such as mobile devices, the Sonos app’s default is to display icons in a list. You can override this default behavior using the RootNodeDisplayType in your presentation map. See Customize display for details.
