Google telling me Spotify Premium isn't available

No further luck when adding the other three family members accounts to Google Assistant and Sonos.

Google Assistant is jumping between answering “Sorry, it looks like Spotify Premium isn’t currently available. Please try again later.” and  “It looks like you haven’t set up your account with the media service.”

I’ve tried to revoke the access for both apps on and redone the linking for the family members, but still the same issue. My own account that suddenly started to work previously is still working with Google Assistant. 

I can as well continue this monologue that I started with a progress update since it’s now working for the entire family with Google Assistant, Sonos and Spotify. 


I did nothing special, I spent 1-2 hours trying to get it to work, revoked the permissions from the Spotify webpage at least twice and redid the linking several times in both the Sonos app and in Google Assistant/Home. I continued to have the issues already mentioned, no progress and eventually I took a break. 

When I checked back 30 minutes later all the accounts were working. I can only guess that something is cached or delayed, so that it takes a while for the linking to work again after the permission are revoked on the Spotify webpage.

Hi @repress-capita-narcoses 

Welcome to the Sonos Community!

Voice Match is a Google Assistant feature and doesn’t really have much to do with Sonos - I can only recommend getting in touch with Google directly.

At a guess, I would say make sure that your wife’s Google account has the correct Spotify account associated with it, in her Google settings. This issue is unlikely to be related to any Sonos settings - though please make sure that the Spotify account she is configured to use in GA has also been added to Sonos.

Please desist in factory-resetting Sonos - it will not be of use.

I hope this helps.

Great to see Sonos has a status page listing google voice services as having a problem. Unfortunately it doesn’t track downtime or when the outage occured.

How long has this been down?

Today I’m having the exact same issue as everyone else in this thread, trying to work out if the integration has been broken for months or if its only happened today.

Please provide some clarification.

The Google Assistant outage has been on-going for approximately 2 weeks.

I hope this helps.

I had the same issue, which was super annoying after purchasing a new set of Sonos speakers. But, it looked like a google issue at the end from what I can tell. I fixed it by creating a new google account.

- Make sure to switch the account in our google home and assistant apps first.
- add sonos as a device to google home. 
- Remove assistant from sonos.

- Test playing from google assistant app to your sonos. Make sure it plays in sonos. In my case it did play. 
- Finally setup google assistant on sonos. If you do not add sonos as a device from google home, this step will not work.


Same problem here. Very annoying.

Same problem. De-authorized and reauthorized Google account on both Spotify and Sonos. Many many times.


Always get the "Spotify premium is unavailable" response when attempting to use the audio control via Sonos.

Same issue here, "sorry, Spotify premium isn't available" I have the same account on google home, google assistant and the Sonos but still no luck, have there been any fixes to this? It's really annoying

Never had a problem with my move or asking my Google nest to play which would then play on my play 1 but since I bought my beam (gen2) can now not get any of them to play Spotify when requested through Google. Why have the Sonos people gone quiet now heaps of people are describing the same problem?

Probably best if you call Sonos Support directly to discuss it.

When you speak directly to the phone folks, they have tools at their disposal that will allow them to give you advice specific to your Sonos system and network.

The very few Sonos employees who frequent this forum are moderators, and not technically Support. 

This issue started 3 months ago. Combination of Sonos, Spotify, Google worked fine before.

Now, the “.. Spotify Premium..” started.

… and still not been able to fix it.

Everything was working just fine, and sad to say SAME issue! Me and my wife have duo it used to work just fine till my wife had her account and even I could play my Spotify playlist now everything is broken. Pretty sad for Sonoa to not take this matter seriously.
