I've had Sonos for a few years now, always a Sonos Beam in my living room and a Sonos One in my bedroom, with Google assistant added. And I've always had the ability to say "Ok Google, play Duo mix on Spotify" and the Sonos that heard me, would play without any issue. But recently, both my living room and bedroom sonos' are insisting I declare which Sonos I want the music to play in. If I don't say "in my bedroom" it won't play and I have to start the voice command over. It's a small detail that is a bit annoying. If I'm 3 feet away from the bedroom sonos', you're obviously the one I want music to play on, the living room sonos didn't hear me or activate to listening mode.Why did this change, and is there a way to change it back?
Using Google Assistant on Roam, I can play TuneIn as well as ask for Time, but can't use Apple, Spotify or YouTube
Using a Sonos Roam speaker with Google set up, I cannot play music from music services. If I set my default music provider to either YouTube, Spotify, or Apple Music, and then say 'okay google, play the Police' I get the following:"Okay playing the artist The Police on YouTube Music" "Sorry it looks like you haven't set up your account on that media service provider yet"But all my settings in Google Assistant look correct? Note: that I can ask for the time, I can also play music from TuneIn, something about the other services is busted?
I have google nest mini and Sonos one. I cant use “ok google” let Sonos play music.But I can play music thought Spotify app , Sonos app , Mac app. Steps to reproduce(speak to google nest mini):1, Ok google,play music on Sonos.2,Ok,play Spotify music on Sonos, sorry, This device does not support this feature. Steps to reproduce(speak to Sonos one):1,Ok google, play music on Sonosdoesn't respond.but if I ask weather or time, it worked. I changed my google assistant default audio device to Sonos, it also doesn't work.
When I give my Beam Google Assistant a command to play music, it plays on my Play:5 instead. The Play:5 sits below the Beam and is inputed from a turntable to play my old LPs. That works fine. The Beam is connected via ARC to my Samsung TV and works fine for TV audio also. Both speakers are in the same room, with the Beam on the top shelf of the media center and the Play:5 below it.My question is: Why does a music voice command on the Beam play music on the Play:5 instead? Also, why I cannot control the volume of the Play:5 from the Beam voice command. I have to touch the Play:5 buttons to increase or decrease the volume.Thanks,
I have Sonos devices in two homes. Both homes are included in my Google Home app. However, i am only able to install Google Assistant in one of those homes. Each time I install it in one home it unlinks from the devices on the other home and I need to do all the installing again.
I am need of some support. To clarify I have had number of Sonos speakers and google home devices for over 5 years I think so am familiar with both technologies and their capabilities however I have recently purchased an Arc which is the first sonos speaker I have owned with built in assistant capabilities.I have set it up and the “hey google” wake word works 99% of the time regardless of how loud the speaker is this is fine. However I have found the actual voice recognition is very hit and miss. I have been doing some experimenting and to remove variables I only use a single voice command during testing “activate the movie scene”. I have found that this probably works less than 50% of the time. When it doesn’t work it is not miss understood, the speaker simply ignores the command completely. Sometimes it only detects part of the command but sometimes it is the start of the command or the end of the command but never the bit in between or misinterprets the words. Furthermore I h
I’ve seen meny have similar problems, but nothing really seems to fit my use case so lets have a go:Ever since I started to use GA on my Arc I intermittently get the famous “I can't reach the internet right now ...” message. First I thought it was that I was running the speaker on wifi and there was interference from the neighbours, so I switched to wired directly to a port on the router.Problems persisted.Next I thought that my pi-hold blocker was doing something, I checked the logs, found a few blocked requests and whitelisted them.No more red in the pi-hole log, problems persisted.Next I made notes on circumstances, like if I had been using the TV, or streamed from a computer or Spotify, before it stopped working or if it worked during, which app as in from which device had accessed it last and so forth.Sometimes it worked, sometimes not in all cases.Next to check was if the message coincided with specific times of day or day of week. Same again, sometimes it worked, sometimes it di
Hi all,It seems like our Sonos Roam is only remembering one voice match profile - The latest one added. We can add an extra voice match profile using Google Assistant on our IPhone or android tablet, and it works temporarily - The Sonos Roam recognises and can identity both voices.However, after a while, it seems to forget one of the users and only retains the latest voice match profile added via Google assistant.This is an issue, as only one user can utilise the personal results features of Google assistant - For example, adding items to a shared grocery list on Anylist or Google Shopping Lists.I think it might be forgetting the second voice profile when the Sonos Roam is powered off using a 5 second press. Anyone else have this issue? ThanksJW
Hey y’all. I have a Sonos Play:5 (Gen 2) set up in my living room and I recently purchased a Google Nest Mini (Gen 2) to control it. I’ve set everything up to the point where I can tell the Nest to do things like pause and start music on the Sonos, but when I try to command the Nest to play a specific artist / genre / playlist etc. (e.g. “Hey Google, play jazz on Sonos in the living room”), it replies with the following error message: “Sorry, it looks like Apple Music isn’t currently supported on the living room”. I have set up Apple Music as the default music service on the Nest, and have logged into the same Apple Music account on both devices. I’m a bit puzzled by the error message, since I’m pretty sure I was able to control Apple Music on the Sonos via the Nest at an earlier stage of setting the two devices up. But maybe I’m just misremembering. I’ve read suggestions elsewhere online that controlling Apple Music on a Sonos Play:5 via the Nest just isn’t supported. In any case, doe
These speakers are good enough.In a world where interoperability is the norm, Sonos just doesn’t cut it. I can’t get my TV audio to stream wirelessly.I can’t get my other non-Sonos speakers to play at the same time as the Sonos. If you have other Google home devices, don’t pay extra for the Sonos One’s with the assistant integration--they don’t integrate. You can only reinstall the music services and they will not work the same. I don’t know what the point of that is. Actually, the point is to likely to try and force Sonos users to buy only Sonos speakers. But the world isn’t like this in 2022. I hope the Product Owner was replaced and there are plans to actually make these work in a connected home with other devices. The speaker quality is 6/10 for the price. I might replace them with the Klipshe.
Really annoying that Apple Music doesn’t show up as one of the options to choose when being asked to choose music service in google Assistent. Only YouTube Music and Spotify are to be chosen. I don’t use neither of those. When is this going to be adjusted? I’m very disappointed that Sonos have these shortcomings.
Hi,I've been trying to set up Google assistant on my two Beams.Neither of them allow me to turn the Microphone on.I have successfully added Google assistant to my Sonos One.Although I can turn the Microphone on for my Move, I cannot add the Google assistant to it either.Any tips would be greatly appreciated before I submit a support ticket.All of my speakers software have been updated.Thanks.
I’ve seen a few questions on this subject, but they all appear to be at least a year old.I just specifically purchased a One SL and paired it to a Google Nest Hub Max so I could use voice commands for Apple Music, but even that doesn’t work.Is there a timeline for fixing this?
I’ve just switched from Alexa to Google Assistant on my Sonos devices. Previously I could for example “stop bedroom music” spoken to any Sonos device, and it would stop the music currently playing on the device ‘Bedroom’ With GA, it only controls the music on the device I speak to, regardless of me specifically stating Bedroom. Am I missing something? I assume GA can do this?!
I’ve noticed a large conversation around getting "Support for Apple Music with Google Assistant”, whereby people were frustrated that Google Assistant on Sonos doesn’t support the ability to play music from Apple Music at this time. I just wanted to make people aware that they can workaround this limitation, albeit in a very limited capacity, by using IFTTT to play a specific "Sonos Favourite" you’ve already “Added to your My Sonos” app home screen area.Requirements: You’ll need to first have a basic IFTTT account with Google Assistant and Sonos added as Services. And you’ll need to have already added what you want Google Assistant to specifically play (ie a playlist) to your My Sonos area by selecting it in the Sonos app and choosing the option "Add Playlist to My Sonos". Steps: You then “create” a new applet in IFTTT that uses Google Assistant service for the "If This" part choosing "Say a simple phrase” to trigger it. Then you choose the "Then That” action which uses the Sonos serv
I have scoured these forums for different solutions here but to no avail. I have a Sonos Arc soundbar set up and added to my google home. The devices it created in the Home were “Sonos TV Control Soundbar” and “Soundbar”. I enabled the google assistant and it works great with my account. My wife is using iOS, and also has google home installed on her device. we have a google mini speaker that will recognize her voice and mine as separate, which is the desired result. On her account, when you go to the voice match settings, the Sonos soundbar is not listed as an available device to use with voice match. There is an option to add a new device to voice match which i tried. I had to log back into my sonos account and confirm adding the devices. After I did this, I now have two “Sonos TV Control Soundbar” and “Soundbar” devices on my google home, but voice match does not work for her account, nor is it listed as an option for voice match in the google app. We are both managers on the a
Hi All,I hope someone can help me. I am trying to get Google Assistant to turn on a particular radio station (RTE Radio 1) on my Sonos.The strange thing is that it finds it and plays it on Google speaker but when I set the Sonos as default speaker it does not work. “Said turn on RTA Radio 1“Sure, RTÉ Radio 1 from TuneIn. Playing on Kitchen…Sorry, I can't find what you asked for….”I am not having this issue with any other radio channels I listen to. But unfortunately this is what my partner listens too and now wants to throw out the Sonos speakers.. Any help or ideas would be great.Thank you all.corcadorcha
Spotify volume becomes quiet and unchangeable after I use the Google Assistant on my Arc. I use Spotify direct cast and it will work normally (I can change the volume in Spotify app, Sonos app, or speaker volume buttons) until I use Google Assistant. Then the volume becomes quiet and I can’t change it using any method until I unplug the Arc. I can still change the volume of TV and Google Assistant voice responses, just not Spotify. Has anyone experienced this? Any ideas how to fix?
I don’t really understand why I can’t use Google Assistant with Sonos when I can use it with Android. One of the reasons buying a Sonos product was it’s Google Assistant support. I found the list of supported countries: https://support.sonos.com/s/article/3491?language=en_US When will Hungary be added to the “coming soon” part and when can I expect it to be supported?
Hiwe are experiencing some GA issues with our sonos setup.We have a kitchen (1x play one) and a dining area (2x play one in stereo).The rooms are next to each other and it is very easy for all speakers to hear the “hey Google” trigger. If I ask a question, I would expect the closest room to reply, but both rooms reply and generates sort of an echo Is that how it is when it is not native Google speakers?
Google Assistant works fine on Sonos 1 if my phone is out of the room.If my phone is in my pocket and I'm in front of the speaker and say, "hey Google, turn up the volume". It turns up my phone instead of the speaker even though the speaker beeps in response to the hey Google.
