Hi all, hoping for some help. Just set up a Roam and authorised the google assistant etc. However, when I try to use the voice function to play a radio station, I.e. Radio 2, TALKsport I get the message “sorry I can’t find what you asked for”. Probably an easy fix so hoping this can be sorted fairly quickly. Thanks
We are four people in our familiy and we have four sonos devices spread around the house which we all use from time to time to stream Spotify from our own accounts. It all works very well when we use the app. However whenever somebody uses Google Assistent voice control to play a song on spotify it automatically streams music using my spotify account - regardles of who gives the control. This happens even if i’m at work. How can we set it up, so it uses their own? If that’s not possible how can we then make a shared account for the house - and use our own private when out? Cheers!
Have my ARC connected to my LG CX.The assistant will sometimes activate during movies and random TV without me saying “hey google”.No words or sounds come close to “hey google” or “okay google” when the assistant activates.Anyone noticed this or have any suggestions?Thanks.
When trying to follow the Google Assistant setup guid and the small gif showing how th app should look, the “Add Google Assistant” button is not present in the app while it shows in the clip. When following the, I don't get past the guide page in the app telling me to install the app, login in and adding my Sonos and my Music services.My Sonos devices has been added in the Google Assistant app, and the music service as well without any issues. The Google App just reports that it cannot find my units. Does an updated point-by-point guide exist that actually matches the Sonos app(and maybe even also the Google Assistant app?
Two days ago my long-standing Google Assistant “Good morning” routine on the Sonos One started telling me that it couldn’t do “that” unless personal results was enabled in Google Assistant for this speaker. I tested and found that it’s referring to the “tell me my reminders” command in the routine. The Google Home app doesn’t offer the “personal results” setting for Sonos speakers, but there is an “enable personal results” setting under Google Assistant settings in the Sonos app, and it was correctly set to enable. But apparently it has stopped working. I checked another non-Sonos speaker that has Google Assistant, and it’s also affected by the same new bug - it has the “personal results” setting enabled, and it no longer works. The “personal results” setting continues to work correctly for Google Home speakers. Google has obviously made a change that kills personal results for all non-Google speakers, either deliberately or as an accidental bug.
I checked if Google assistant is possible to be install to my Sonos beams or not.and I confirmed that it is possible.However, my area(Japan) is still impossible to use Google assistant on my Sonos.Are there any schedule to apply google assistant to Japan?
I want my Sonos One to be the default music speaker when I say a command like “play rock music” or when it’s already playing “play the next song” without having to mention which speaker. I don't have the option in the home app that's mentioned in other threads.
Hello,I need your help please:Can we use google assistant or any other system to record conversations in a room where a sonos is without notifying it? Can we use the sonos system combined with google assistant or any other one to listen to activities happening in a room?I am asking as I suspect my ex husband set this up to follow my conversations and listen to activities happening at my home. Thanks so much for your help!
Since a couple of days, my Sonos Beam (Gen2) and/or Move keep saying they can’t ‘reach Philips Hue’, when I use voice commands via the Google Assistant. This used to work fine previously. The problem seems to be related to ‘scenes’, because a more simple command as ‘Turn of all the light’ still works. Maybe something went wrong with the most recent software update from last week, or so?Thanks in advance for all the input!Michel
PROBLEM: When I ask to Google Assistant to play some song uploaded on my free YouTube Music account or on my local NAS it can’t.STEP by STEP action:I have only one Google Account on my Android Device.First of all I set up Google Assistant to control Sonos throught my Google Account (on my Android Device).Then I connected my free YouTubeMusic account to Sonos App and I set YouTube Music as my preferred service on my Android Device.Then I uploaded some songs on my YoutubeMusic account. If I ask “Ok Google play porcelain of Moby on Sonos” it reply “Ok I’ll play porcelain of Moby from YoutubeMusic on Sonos…. I’m sorry the content is not available on Sonos”.I also tried to remove the YoutubeMusic Account from the Sonos App then I uploaded some songs on my NAS and paired Sonos App with NAS (I can see it on my Music Library on Sonos App). So I asked “Ok Google play porcelain of Moby on Sonos” then Google assistant reply “Ok I’ll play porcelain of Moby from YouTubeMusic on Sonos… I’m sorry I c
I have tried resetting multiple times, reinstalling all my apps and also a factory reset on my Sonos move. I verified it is connected to the same network as my phone and while I know there is a connection between my phone and the sonos device it still will not install google voice it goes through the steps and when it looks for the device it says not found.
So the Sonos Era 100 and 300 have been officially announced - without support for Google Assistant.The following article from The Verge (https://www.theverge.com/23627044/sonos-era-300-100-announced-price-features-hands-on) mentions this: ‘Sonos says this is due to changes that Google has implemented for companies that want to run the voice service on third-party hardware. Patrick Spence claims it’s unrelated to the ongoing legal battle between the two companies and insists Assistant is now more of a “heavy engineering lift” than it was before. “Right now, we don’t see it being worth the effort. We hope Google will take another path that will allow us to continue to offer it in more of a lightweight manner the way we do today.”’Does this mean that those new speakers cannot be controlled by an additional Google Nest speaker either via the Google Home integration? And will this lack of Google Assistant support eventually affect owners of existing Sonos devices, such as the Sonos One/Move
I added google assistant as voice control in sonos and this works fine. I added Apple Music as music service in sonos and that works fine selecting music through the sonos app.I set Apple Music as preferred music service in google assistant.I get an error when asking music through voice control. First there is confirmation of the command to play the song through Apple Music but then it states that this is not supported.this Sames a pretty basic action, why is this not working?
All ot the sudden. One of my Sonos one devices no longer plays music when I ask it to on the Google Assistant. It says I must tell it what device to play it on. It never did this before and it's obviously kind of stupid since it is obviously the device I want to play it on. I thought the fix would be to pair the Sonos one as its own speaker but I can't find that option in Google home. I can for other rooms where I have legacy Sonos devices paired with Google home devices. But when it's all integrated in one thing I can't seem to figure out how to make it default to playing on itself anymore?
It is UNACCEPTABLE that you are marketing Sonos Roam speakers with GOOGLE VOICE ASSISTANT and ALEXA when you do not support it in Poland. The Roam should not be sold in this market as you are misleading customers with your translated user guide, indicating it can work. Only to figure out, by digging deeper on the website that it does not.Can I ask you Sonos, why you are selling the Roam in Poland, when you are fully aware that the only product that should be on sale is the Roam SL?As for the laziness of not adding voice support with English is beyond me. Next of, except for the fraudulent behavior against your own customers, this practice is exceptionally fraudulent against your competitors. They are not advertising their products with features they do not deliver.As a company you have lost all integrity as it is quite clear you do this deliberately. Fortunately I am in a position to advice quite many people on consumer products, needless to say, your brand will forever stay in the bla
The web is awash with all sorts of answers to similar questions, some with answers two or three years old which might as well be written on papyrus for all their relevancy to today.So let me ask my own.Here’s what I have now:1 Google Nest Wifi Router 1 Sonos 1 speaker 1 crummy old wired doorbell chimeWith these I can play music through my IPhone on the speaker via Nest WiFi, to which the speaker is connected. I can, sometimes, hear the crummy doorbell ring.Now I want to add an electronic doorbell/camera to this mix.I am looking at the Google Nest Wired doorbell. Wired, so I don’t have to mess with batteries. I could care less if the existing chime worked. I could even disconnect the chime itself, since it isn’t always loud enough. I want the signal from the bell to connect to the Nest Router and from there to the Sonos speaker and chime over the speaker. I see a lot of content saying you can get the doorbell to ring through a Google speaker but I don’t want to buy another speaker jus
We have a number of Sonos speakers, three of which use Google voice search. We each have our own Spotify user profiles and Google Assistant accounts, including my wife. For both of us, Google complies with commands to do things like switch on lights, and if we ask it "Who am I," it knows each of us by name. But for me, it only functions when I request music. It indicates that it doesn't understand for my wife. Using her Spotify app, she can effectively send music to Sonos, but voice commands are ineffective.
I’ve been trying to add the ability to control my Sonos system with Google Assistant. In the Sono2 app, I go to “Service & Voice”, then select “+ Add a third-party smart device to control Sonos”. I then get the option of either Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. When I choose Google Assistant, I get the following screen: It doesn’t let me add any functionality in the app itself. I have followed this instructions on Google Assistant but it doesn’t work. I spent a long time on the phone with Sonos Technical Support but they couldn’t solve this. Anyone get past this issue? Thank you
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?
