I have had successful alexa and sonos integration for some time. Multiple ‘native’ alexa devices (spots, fireTV) and multiple sonus devices (tv sound bar & sonos 5’s) and a mixed sonos move device. Everything worked fine until a few days ago -- when I ask alexa to play my flash briefing I get time and day then “here is your flash briefing” then silence. Similarly when I ask alexa to shuffle my spotify playlist I get “Here is music from spotify” and then silence. I have powered down/up, logged out of amazon/alexa accounts and back in, deregistered services and re-registered,...still nothing.
Bonjour Comme beaucoup d'entre-nous, j'ai été obligé de scinder mon système SONOS en 2 systèmes S1 et S2 (connect Amp obligatoirement sur S1 et sonos roam sur S2 !).Or la skill SONOS ne sait pas asocier 2 systèmes. Avez- vous trouvé une solution pour gérer les 2 systèmes via ALEXA ? J'ai vu la solution stupide proposée par SONOS qui est d'utiliser Google Assistant : je pense que SONOS n'a rien compris de l'utilisation des assistants vocaux. Une autre solution est d'utiliser un autre compte alexa : quelle est la marche à suivre ? Cordialement
Hi has anyone else had difficulty with Alexa activation with Ones? I'm trying to get BBC radio to play in one room, Alexa announces BBC Sounds app, but nothing happens. It works fine in other rooms. I've read a lot of negative feedback over the last week or so to about voice activation, has something happened recently?
I’ve just spent two hours re-setting my Sonos One so that it recognizes a new router. Alex is working Ok, because when I ask her the time, or the weather, she gives correct answers, and when I ask her to play a particular play list, she finds the play list and says that she’s playing it, but there’s no sound after that??
When I ask Alexa to “Play my notifications” on every other Alexa-enabled device in my house, it almost never fails. However when I ask Alexa to do that on my Sonos soundbar, about 50% of the time she plays a song. Has anyone else noticed this?Alexa on the soundbar seems to be biased toward assuming you want to play music. Is this something that can be corrected?I know that Alexa “learns” in a macro sense. Does she learn in a micro sense--for example that I don’t want to play music while others might.
I noticed (twice on my first day of Sonos customer - my first Move arrived yesterday) that eventually I can’t talk to Alexa, she wouldn’t reply.I have come up with the following workaround: click the Bluetooth button to activate Bluetooth click the Bluetooth button again to deactivate itSounds familiar to anyone?Wi-Fi coverage is good. Can use music with Spotify just fine on the Move. It’s just Alexa
I have two Symfonisk Bookshelf speakers as a stereo pair in my bedroom. I had an Echo Dot in my bedroom with the Symfonisks (“Bedroom”) as the preferred speaker for the Dot selected in the Alexa app along with a Firestick. With this set up everything was working fine. I could say “Alexa, play music” and it would play music through the Symfonisks. I could similarly adjust the volume and stop the music without suffixing the command with “in the Bedroom”I’ve added an additional Echo Dot and paired it with the original one as a home cinema for the Firestick. The Bedroom Symfonisk pair are still the preferred speaker. Now, I can still ask it to play music without suffixing it with “in the bedroom” but I can only get Alexa to control the volume or stop the music by adding the “in the bedroom suffix” to the command.Any ideas how I can resolve this?I’ve tried disabling and re-enabling the Sonos skill with no luck.Cheers!
Quale è il comando vocale che applica la duplicazione di quellom che sta producendo uno speaker sonos su un altro? Per capirsi meglio la stessa azione della pressione continuata del tasto play/pause? What is the voice command that applies the duplication of the one spekaer sono another one? To better understand the same action of continuously pressing the play / pause button?
I searched the help quite extensively for this issue but didn’t find anything. Nevertheless apologies if I missed something and this has already been answered.I noticed my Echo Spot is no longer controlling my ConnectAmp in the kitchen and on further investigation it seems it now thinks the Connect is a Roam. I have deleted it from the Alexa app and rediscovered it, it still discovers a Roam and won’t control it. I tried renaming it, that didn’t help.Here’s the thing, I did have a Roam for a couple of weeks but returned it as, to be honest, it was a bit crap, constantly losing connection and needing resets. It took ages to get it set up in the Sonos 2 app, whilst leaving all my other devices connected to the Sonos 1 app….so I am guessing this is at the root of the issue. I have, however, removed all the Sonos 2 stuff from phones and laptop.Does anyone have any suggestions short of me completely starting from scratch, removing all my devices from the Sonos app and rediscovering them?
Hola,Soy propietario de 3 dispositivos Amazon Echo y 2 altavoces Sonos One (Gen 2). He intentado crear una multiestancia para que suene en los 5 altavoces la misma música de Spotify, pero no logro. Leyendo foros, veo que no es posible ya que las tecnologías son imcompatibles.Encuentro poco serio que Sonos indique que es compatible con Alexa sin especificar que es “parcialmente” compatible. Hay alguna solución o tiempo en el routemap de desarrollo para que incluyan esta compatibilidad? Gracias.
Every couple weeks, Alexa stops responding to commands or stops responding consistently. For example, I can start playing something with a voice command but cannot stop playing or adjust the volume with a voice command despite hearing the acknowledgement chime. To fix this issue, I have to disable and re-enable Alexa several times before capabilities are restored. Have others experienced this? Is there a long term fix that is known or in the works?
Over the past three weeks or so voice control of my Sonos Move has become erratic. I have already worked with the tech support desk via chat to disable/enable Alexa and some of the music services. Normally after a reboot everything works great. At some time later, saying “Alexa stop.” doesn’t work. A command to play a channel or music in Amazon is successfully repeated by Alexa, but the action doesn’t take place. If I go to my Beam and tell Alexa to play X on the Sonos Move that seems to work. The Play5s, Beam, and Sub work great in my office and don’t seem to have this issue.
I switched from Comcast to Verizon, uninstalled Alexa and reinstalled. Upgraded to the new Sonos app and when asked to play a station on Pandora, Alexa will acknowledge, but no music plays. I’m at a loss for what to try next.
About 4-6 weeks ago, Alexa and Google Home commands can no longer find my Sonos devices.I can ask both services for the time and weather just fine, but I can no longer play music via voice command (I can only play music through the app).What gives? Why can’t smart assistant services find my Sonos devices any longer?
