I got my new Sonos One, installed the app and installed google assistance. I can play music on the Sonos, but the google assistance is not working. I added the device in my google account, but it doesn’t respond. I cannot activate the microphone on the Sonos. How can I solve this?
I was surprised to learn that you cannot setup a ‘Routine’ on a Sonos One speaker. This was confirmed by Sonos Customer Care. Specifically I was informed that “Google Assistant doesn't have Routine support within Sonos yet”. Needless to say I was disappointed given the price of the Sonos One vs. a simpler Google Nest Mini. Yes, the sound quality is no comparison between the two which is why I opted for the Sonos. And I just assumed (incorrectly, obviously) that a Sonos One would provide all the setup features you’d find in the Nest Mini. If a $50 speaker can provide daily ‘routines’ then why doesn’t a $200 speaker???I’m hoping the Engineers at Sonos will resolve this issue shortly.
Google just released native support for SiriusXM via the Home app. It is listed as a “radio” service. I can use voice commands to start and stop stations just fine on the actual google home products (Hub, mini’s etc), however when I attempt to target my Sonos system for playback I am told by Google Assistant that the device is not supported. For example, I say to my Home Hub “Sonos Kitchen play Phish Radio on SiriusXM”. Google Assistant recognizes the command as valid with something like “OK playing Phish Radio on SiriusXM on Kitchen” ; immediately followed by “Sorry kitchen is not supported at this time”. Is this a bug or functionality that is not yet built? Please note that I am logged into the same SiriusXM account on both my Sonos system and the Google Home system.
Hej!Har en Google Home mini och diverse Sonos. Jag försöker lägga till Google assistant i Sonos appen men går ej. Jag gör följande : Sonos appen Inställningar → Tjänster → Röst / Lägg till tjänst Google Assistant → lägg till Google assistant “Ett ögonblick Det kan ta några minuter."“Google Assistant är redo att användas med Sonos" Men tjänsten dyker aldrig upp i sonos appen under Tjänster / Röst. Jag kan lägga till Sonos inne från Google assistant /Google Home. Så jag får upp rummen etc. Kan styra Spotify från Google home mini och streama till Sonos.Men kan inte styra Sonos native från Google home mini och tjänsten dyker alltså inte upp under tjänster i Sonos appen. Någon som vet vad som är fel? Tack på förhand!//Fredrik
I know there is another topic on this; but it has been flagged as ‘answered’.It’s not answered with an update. When will this be fixed? Most basic option is to shuffle music on your audio devices, right? When can we expect an update with this bug-fix?
From the Sonos apps installed on my iPad and Macbook Pro I can manually create playlists from the music library stored on my Macbook --- basically my iTunes library assembled over several years.I can select one of these playlists or a single track and play it on either of my two sonos one devices simply by clicking on it.But I’m not able to do this using google assistant voice control as it doesn’t recognise my Music Library or sonos playlists as music sources. It only seems to accept streaming paid-subscription Music Services e.g. Spotify premium account.Why is this ?Is it simply a commercial decision by Google who hope that I will subscribe to Google Play Music, which would give them a monthly revenue stream ?I could of course subscribe to a different streaming service like Spotify, Apple Music or Amazon Music, in which case neither Google nor Sonos would receive any subscription benefit from me.I’m quite happy for google assistant voice control to tell me the weather forecast
HiThe Sonos App does not support Google Play Music very well.I have a Windows PC, Android Phone and Android Tablet. All software are updated.I have Sonos Play 1, Sonos Play One and Sonos Connect.I have read earlier threads regarding this, but i still miss sine og the described issues.- Earlier the app. supported "radio" when a got to an artist. This have been gone a year or more.- In Google Play Music app. a can search for Artist, Song, Genre and more. In Sonos App I cant search for genres. When i eg. Search for Rock ord Jazz i get a empty result.- When in Google Play go to radio stations, there are alot to choose among (and many genres to choose among) The Sonos App only has 7 genres two choose among. I go via browse -> Google Play Music-> Browse Radio channels -> genre Sonos is a superb audio system, and the app is quite cool - but it can get event better. Kind regards Thomas
I set up Google Assistant in my two sonos one (gen 2) and i try to use sleep timer and it not work.When I have spotify playing, if I say "Sleep Timer for 10 minutes", Google Assistant responds "Sleep timers can only be set when media is playing".Is there any way to get this to work?
Hello,I am in the process of building my Sonos system across my house and am absolutely loving it. I do have a couple questions about Google Assistant support:On the Google Home, there is an option under Accessibility to play a sound once the unit has finished recognizing your command. This is in addition to the sound that plays when you say the wake word. I am blind, so this audio queue can be helpful to know when the unit has finished with my command. I suspect this may be one of those things that Google doesn’t give third-party speakers access to, but will it ever be possible to stop an alarm or timer just by saying “stop” without saying Hey Google first? This works on Google Home speakers.
I use Assistant on my Pixel 2XL. I also use it on a Sonos One, which is used by my whole household. We use Spotify for music. I originally had my Spotify account linked to my Google account on the Sonos, but quickly found that if someone else used the Sonos while I was listening to Spotify elsewhere (like at work), then my music would stop. To fix this, I created a house Google account, and linked that Assistant to the Sonos. Then I created a house Spotify account, and linked that account to my house Google Assistant. This works great, no problems. Now I am trying to link Tile to my Google account, so I can ask the Assistant on the Sonos to find my Tile items. This is more difficult. I set up my house Google account on an old, unused Android phone. I am able to link Tile to that account. But since Tile needs Bluetooth, I can't use Tile on Sonos unless that old phone is turned on and in range of the Tile items. I don’t really want to have that old phone sitting around, chargi
Just purchased a Sonos One (Gen 1) for the bedroom mostly for my wife’s use. She likes use voice commands but being Sono’s doesn’t recognize voice, it ‘doesn’t access her personal Spotify account.For the time being I was going to keep the Google Home in the room to recogize wife’s voice and play music on the Sonos. Idealy I would like to make the Sonos one the default speaker for the the Google Home but I do not even see it listed in the Google Home app.Mostly importantly I do not want both of them answering at “Ok Google”.
