I’ve been trying to add the ability to control my Sonos system with Google Assistant. In the Sono2 app, I go to “Service & Voice”, then select “+ Add a third-party smart device to control Sonos”. I then get the option of either Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. When I choose Google Assistant, I get the following screen:
It doesn’t let me add any functionality in the app itself. I have followed this instructions on Google Assistant but it doesn’t work. I spent a long time on the phone with Sonos Technical Support but they couldn’t solve this. Anyone get past this issue?

Make sure you tap the “Add Google Assistant” button, not “Learn more”.
See the full instructions here:
I am tapping “Google Assistant” but this Quick Help screen is what I get and I cannot get past it.
Have you tried deleting and re-installing the Sonos app?
Tried it, same outcome. (Thanks for helping, btw).
This is not answered… I still can’t add Google Assistant for voice control on either an Android or iOS device. Help!
Welcome to the Sonos Community!
You need take no steps in the Sonos app to use your Sonos system with Google Assistant on a separate device. Simply link to your Sonos account in the Google Assistant app, as described in https://support.sonos.com/en-us/article/set-up-a-google-assistant-device-to-control-sonos.
Google Assistant can only be added to a Sonos system if you have compatible speakers, which you do not.
I hope this helps.
