autoplay with youtube music doesn’t work on sonos beam

Hi , I recently bought a sonos bar, and I’m trying to play songs from YouTube music on my sonos. I have a youtube red account, and autoplay works perfectly fine on my chromecast. By autoplay, I mean when I ask google to play a song, it plays the next song automatically based on its learning & related songs.

I’m trying to make this work on sonos, but unfortunately playback stops after the somg gets finished. Has anyone found a solution to this?

Hi @Rishabhc, Thanks for reaching out, and welcome to the community. Sorry to know about your issue on Autoplay with youtube and Sonos, I want to ask if do you have the Youtube premium subscription? Does it happen on other device controllers that you have? Also, do you have the subscription added to the Sonos App? I’ll ask you to submit a diagnostic report to investigate further what could be causing this issue. You may reply to the thread with the confirmation number to assist you with this issue.  

Keep us posted on how it goes and we're here to answer any further questions you have.

Hi Simon,

I do have a youtube subscription(youtube red) account. Songs do auto play on my google chromecast.

I have my same youtube red account added to sonos.

I’ve submitted my diagnostic report, my confirmation number is 258936505.

Hi @Rishabhc, thanks for the update and for sending a diagnostic report of your Sonos system, upon checking, I can’t see any issues on your system, I want to ask if the Autoplay feature worked on the Sonos App before or not? As far as I know, Sonos has TV Autoplay but not on Youtube. it could be a feature that could be integrated into the Sonos app in the future. We’ll check on this with my specialist. 

Let us know how it goes and we're here to answer any further questions you have.


Hi Simon,

Thanks for your reply. No, the autoplay hasn’t worked before on sonos(I’m a first time Sonos customer!).

Sure, happy to understand the feature doesn’t exist on Sonos yet & not sure if its something which youtube needs to add the feature or Sonos :)

Please keep me posted if you hear about a viable solution in near future.
