@Bills_list Welcome to the Sonos Community and thank you for bringing this question to the Community. I understand that you have added a premium Spotify account to your Google Assistant. Have you also added this Spotify account to Sonos? If yes, does the Spotify service work from the Sonos app? Also, who setup up your network, as we can see a diagnostic report showing you are in both Sonosnet with daisy chained products and on an access point for Station Mode with some of your Sonos products.

After confirming that Spotify works from the Sonos app. I would then ask that you correct the Ethernet wiring of your Sonos products. When possible we recommend wiring Sonos to the router, an unmanged switch or a manged switch with STP Settings properly setup. You do not want Sonos products Ethernet wired to themselves as this could cause broadcast storms. If any Sonos products are not Ethernet wired and are with about 40’ of an Ethernet wired unit they will connect into Sonosnet.

I am not aware of how far apart your Sonos products are, but if your Amp’s are in a  rack and only three or 4 products are Ethernet wired they should all be in Sonosnet. After correcting the daisy chain then please follow these steps:

  1. Power down your wifi network equipment with no lights, meaning no battery backup, for 30 seconds then power back on
  2. Power off/on your Sonos products with lights for 15 seconds starting with the Ethernet wired products
  3. Re-boot the Sonos app on the mobile device running the app after the network and Sonos re-booting are completed

 When all is re-booted and re-connected please test the voice commands using this link as a guide. After completing the above testing please let us know the results and submit us a new diagnostic report using this link and provide us that report number here.
