Wife can't request music by voice, but other things work by voice
We have several Sonos speakers, 3 of which have voice, using Google. My wife and I each have Google Assistant and our own Spotify user profiles. For both of us, Google obeys commands for things such as turning on lights, and it recognizes each of us by name if we ask “Who am I”. However, it only works for me when asking for music. For my wife, it says it doesn’t understand. She successfully sends music to Sonos using her Spotify app, but using voice doesn’t work.Any suggestions?
Hello,Are Google Home routines supported using the Google Assistant on Sonos products? I was hoping to replace all of my Google Speakers with Sonos but when I say “Hey Google turn off the lights” (which is a custom Google Home routine it works though the Google devices but not Sonos devices.Thank you,Greg
Play on a Sonos Groups from a Google Assistant
I don’t think this is possible, but all the answers I find are from 3 years ago (which is depressing because it feels like an updated feature is never going to come). I don’t want to group any google speakers with my Sonos speakers. I just want to know if there is a way to say “Hey google play “song” on “my Sonos group”. “My Sonos Group” is one of several groupings I’ve built in the Sonos app. I know there is no way to group within the Home app itself, but is there no command that Google Assistant can’t send to Sonos to just play an already set up group?
Google Home on Sonos in Poland
Hello,I was wondering is it possible to use Google Assistant through SONOS in Poland? I’m preety sure it was available, before SONOS introduces its own assistant. The main issue is - can I use SONOS to control Google Home devices in Poland? If not, and the problem lies that the Google Assistant feature in SONOS is not available in Poland, can someone answers if SONOS is working on it ? Or when can it be introduced? I belive SONOS looses a lot becouse of this issue... I don't care about service in Polish, but it would be nice to have any Google Home service, since the product is adapted to it in other countries? Are there any other devices that I can add to my home system that will allow me to use Google Home/Assistant and SONOS without problems?
"Sorry, there was a glitch. Please try again in few seconds."
I’m using 2x Sonos One and Beam 2. All of them are using Wi-Fi 5GHz via the Unify AP. The apartment is small (<50 sqm) and the network is usually stable. All the devices are updated to their latest firmware versions.However, couple times a day when I say “Ok Google” or “Hey Google” the Sonos speakers immediately answer with “Sorry, there was a glitch”. Then if I repeat myself, assistant is able to process the query.What can I do to help you diagnose the problem? I’ve already submitted the diagnostic information via the app. Is there anything else I can do?
Google Assistant not playing a particular radio station (via TuneIn)
Hi,Using voice commands to start radio stations. Some are working and some that worked before is not.

“Hey Google” causes Arc to lower its volume
I have SVC and Alexa enabled on my Arc, not Google Assistant. I do have a google home in the room as well and if I say “Hey, Google” or “OK, Google” the Arc will lower the volume. The volume does not go back on its own. Removing SVC didn’t fix this. Is there a fix for this?
How to play a specific radio station using Google Assistant?
Google Assistant on Sonos works great for me in almost al cases. There is, however, one case in which it doesn’t work that great.My favorite Radio Station is the Dutch station NPO Radio 2. If I ask Sonos “Hey Google, play Radio 2” it always starts the ‘wrong’ station Radio 2 UAE (via TuneIn). Even if I ask it more specifically, “Hey Google, play NPO Radio 2”, the same, wrong station is played.The NPO Radio 2 station is available (next to many other Radio 2 stations) via the Sonos Radio service.Question:Is there any way to play a particular radio station in case of such ambiguity?Or, on other words, is there a way to let the Sonos/Google system know that, when I ask to play radio 2, I want the system to play the particular Dutch radio station NPO Radio 2?
Can't activate voice match on Sonos Beam
Hi all, I'm trying to activate voice match to my Sonos Beam unsuccessfully. It used to work before but it is not working anymore. Any commands issued by my wife google thinks came from me. I've deleted my home and started from scratch and I was able to see the Beam as a supported device for Personal information. However, only my google mini shows as a device for voice match. Anyone had a similar problem and was able to fix this? Thanks Rennan EDIT: Managed to fix it. I clicked on Add device with Voice Match. However, I was getting a weird error "No WiFi connection" as I was definitely connected to my WiFi. I decided to spam the Try again button and after a few tries the Sonos Beam was recognised. Don't know what is wrong with my account to constantly pop up the no WiFi message, but spamming the try again button did the trick over here.
Play google assistant on all speakers in group
I have 2 Sonos ones in a stereo pair. Only one can be set to run google assistant.I think it would be nice to have the option to have google assistant answer on both / all speakers. Currently the response will only come from the one that is set to run google assistant, and I dont see any way to change that.This would be nice for example when asking google to play pink noise or anything similar, where sound appears to be coming from google as opposed to having sonos play from a music service.Even better would be if all speakers could listen for the wake word, and then start the command from whichever hears better

Can multiple users control Sonos One with voice match?
I bought a Sonos One last week, and would like to allow my family members (in the same Google Home house) to control it with Google Assistance Voice Match. I have a number of Google Nest speakers in my house, on which this works great. Each family member's voice is recognised and gets personalised results.I have been able to add Google Assistance voice control in the Sonos app, and have added the Sonos in the Google Home app. However, Voice Match only works for myself, not for my familiy members. I have noticed that, unlike the Google Nest Audio and the Google Nest Mini speakers in my house, the Sonos is not in the list of devices using Voice Match.Am I forgetting something or doing it wrong? Or is it just not possible to use Voice Match for multiple users on the Sonos One?Your help is much appreciated!
Sonos Arc with Google Assistant: "mic is muted" and "mic is back on" while music is playing
Hey all,I set up Google Assistant on my Arc last night and it keeps repeating “mic is muted” and then after a couple of seconds (or sometimes longer) “the mic is back on” while music/sound is playing. I did find this sonos thread with the same issue, but there are no other devices around it and I cleaned the device to make sure there wasn’t any debris.The only other thing I can think of is maybe the heater is somehow interfering with the device (there’s a vent about 1.5’ below), but the mic only seems to be triggered while the speaker is active and not at rest.Here are some videos of the behaviour: I ended up disabling GA on my Arc for now (luckily I have a nearby Move that’s currently able to pick up my GA voice commands), but it’d be great to be able to use it on the Arc since we don’t plan on having the Move in that location permanently. Any ideas?
How to ask Google assistant to play music for x minutes
I have just replaced my two JBL link with Google assistant by two Sonos One. With the JBL I used to ask Google assistant to play music for a certain duration and it worked very well.Now, when I ask the same to a Sonos One, it plays for the requested duration and then, Google Assistant says "excuse me, I didn't understand". And it continues to play. Are there kind of limitations with the Sonos devices?
Apple Music supporting voice command using Google assist.
I have spent hours on the phone with Sonus support regarding voice command for Apple music. Support says they have exhausted all the possibilities while troubleshooting and to contact Google. communicating with Google seems to be very difficult. When attempting to use voice command with Apple music, the responses is that Apple Music does not support this arc device. Hopefully someone has come across this before and has a solution.
When will Google Assistant for Sonos be available in Japan
Subject says it all, it is ridiculous that we have Google Home products in Japan since many many many years, and there is still no integration with Sonos.Could the Sonos team at least state whether they have the intention to get this working?I don’t think there are legal problems, because you sell Sonos One with Google Assistant, so incorporating is definitely not an issue legal wise.So why don’t you support speakers like the Sonos 5?
