Google Assistant and Amazon Music Unlimited
Will we be able to play music from Amazon Music Unlimited to our Sonos speakers using Google Assistant in the future? I realize an Echo device would be the obvious choice here, but I'm hoping to be able to do this with my Android phone.

However, you mentioned your android phone. You can speak to Alexa on your phone to play to a Sonos speaker already, with either the Amazon music or Alexa app.
I suppose I could use the Alexa or Amazon Music Apps, but I'd prefer a hands-free solution. I'll just keep waiting. Thanks for the idea though.
Surprisingly, it does work on the Sonos! For example, you can say “Hey Google, play x on Amazon Music” and it will play correctly. However you have to say Amazon Music as you can’t set Amazon Music as your default music provider in the GA app. If you just say “Hey Google, play x” or “play music” it will say you haven’t set a default music provider, or it will play via Spotify or whatever you have set up in the GA app
If you try to play via Amazon Music on Google speakers, like the Nest mini, it will just say “sorry, voice actions aren’t available for that app” which is annoying but not surprising.
