How can I control sonos using Google Assistant on other devices?

I can't tell Google Assistant to play music from my phone, everytime I speak to Google Assistant on the phone like "play some piano in the living room" or "play something on sonos one", the Assistant always responds with "Sorry, I can't do that yet."

Is it just me or Google Assistant actually can't do that yet?

Hi thisisinsane

I think your online name says it all 🤣

Type Alexa or Google in the search box on the Sonos Suppport Page to learn more about voice assistants and Sonos.

Not sure if you are right @AjTrek1. If I tell the assistant to “Play Celine Dion on Kitchen” (just a test), Sonos starts playing the “This is Celine Dion” playlist on Spotify.

To me it look like @thisisinsane ‘s commands are to generic. Have you tried being more specific (maybe try the command I used above - if you can stand Celine Dion).
