# FAQ: How do I link zones so they play the same thing simultaneously? --- If you have more than one zone connected to Roon, you can group them together and play the same music in multiple rooms to get the party going! # How To Group Zones ## Open The Zone Picker To Group Zones, select the zone you're controlling in desktop and tablet interface, by clicking in the footer, next to volume: <img src='http://roon-kb.s3.amazonaws.com/2a0eabf8-79aa-488d-a9c9-0b5885b80403.png'/> On a phone, select by clicking below the volume popup and clicking Switch Zone: <img src='http://roon-kb.s3.amazonaws.com/57033bd2-cb23-41e3-aedb-aa4f77e30a0a.png'/> From there, click on "GROUP ZONES" (here highlighted in the screenshot). <img src='http://roon-kb.s3.amazonaws.com/12bacb8f-0fa5-4772-99f6-f5d5a0d003c6.png'/> This brings up the available zones; for example: <img src='http://roon-kb.s3.amazonaws.com/15673e8c-1e5e-484f-a496-b38b553c6de1.png'/> Now click the desired zone(s) to be added and select Save. Your grouped zone will be called something like 1st DAC + 2nd DAC. That's it! <br> ### Renaming If you wish, you can edit the name of the grouped zone in the Zones pop up menu. Click the speaker icon next to the Grouped Zone and select the Settings icon (the gearwheels icon). Now enter the Grouped Zone Name. Note that the name will be lost once you ungroup the zones. To ungroup your zones, select your Grouped Zone and click "Group Zones" at the top of the zones panel. Next click the zones you want to remove and click Save. You can also rename your Group Zone by right clicking (or long press) the Zone Picker at the bottom right of the screen. From there, select Zone Settings. <img src='http://roon-kb.s3.amazonaws.com/41ca820e-391d-4b3e-9bbf-60f7100716e3.png'/> <br> ### Group Types Zones can only be grouped with other zones of the same type, meaning Squeezebox zones cannot be grouped with RAAT zones. These are the types of zones within which grouping is possible: - RAAT Zones - Roon Ready devices - Roon outputs on OSX, Windows, and Android - Roon Bridge outputs on OSX, Windows, and Linux - Squeezebox zones - Meridian Zones - AirPlay Zones Note that Chromecast zones cannot be grouped within Roon, but can be grouped using the Google Home app. See the Knowledge Base article on [[Chromecast]] for more information.
