Hello. I am trying to sync my wife's voice with sonos so she can play sonos via voice control on Google assistant. I can do this on my device but she cannot. The Sonos app on her phone is logging into my Sonos account and therefore picks up my voice control not hers. Is there a way to make this work, so she can control Sonos with her voice? Thanks
Plenty of help on the web to connect to Apple Music but i dont want to do that, i am playing music from my Mac via Sonos Controller but i cant work out how to set Assistant to use that music library, it wants a "service" but music library on a computer doesn't seem to be a "service". For "music services" within assistant i have "no default" set since its not you tube or google play, have i missed some settings or is this just not possible? Thanks
I've been using Sonos with Google Assistant since it first became available, but over the last several days there's a new problem: Google Assistant frequently forgets what room my Sonos One stereo pair is in, so when I say "Hey Google, turn on the light" I get the surprising and annoying response "Ok, turning on 8 lights" (that's a stupid bug on Google's part - there's no way that "the light" should ever be interpreted as "all lights" if it doesn't know what room it's in, but leaving that aside as a Google bug...) When I check the Google Home app, I see my Sonos speaker pair in the correct room. A couple of times the problem fixed itself spontaneously after a while. A couple of times I was able to fix it manually by removing the Sonos speaker pair from the room and re-adding it. And a couple of times, like today, that didn't work because Google Home stubbornly says "There was a problem communicating with Google" whenever I try to touch the Sonos speaker room assignment (and it only af
Hi I have a Beam hooked up to a Sony android TV and am using Google Assistant throughout the house (2 Ones in other rooms). I can turn the TV on and off, as well as changing the volume, but cannot get anything more advanced controls to work, such as playing Netflix via voice control through Google Assistant. Does anyone know if this is possible, and if so how do you need to set it up? I have another (non-smart) TV with a Chromecast, which you can control via Google Assistant so had hoped Android TV would be the same as Chromecast. Thanks in advance
Hey guys, I love the Google assistant integration with my Sonos! But i have 9 Sonos speakers of which only 1 Sonos One speaker. Voice control works perfect, but i was wondering, is there a way to push the playback of Google assistant to all or to more than only my 1 Sonos ONE speaker? It would be cool if I can push Google's Assistant voice to all my Sonos speakers in my dining room but I have clue if that's possible? thnx !
It's extremely silly that the Sonos beam has Google assistant built in, but I can't add it to a speaker group and play multi room audio with the rest of my Google cast enabled speakers. Im not buying any more Sonos products until this gets fixed. I know they want people to stay in their ecosystem but that's more of a deterrent than anything. Get it together Sonos!
Hi, Using a Google Mini to control Sonos is proving a little testing... When I say "Hey Google" I expect the Sonos volume to drop so GA can hear me... But it doesn't... I then shout "Volume 10%" and the volume INCREASES (it was playing higher than 10% so should have reduced...) I then shout "Volume 10%" again and, once again, the volume goes up (even louder)! I think GA/Sonos *thinks* it dropped the volume to hear me and the unexpected increases are the result of only doing the restore half of the temporary volume reduction. Anyone experienced the same? (Anyone else wishing the Sonos app had a "reboot all devices" option?)
Hi I’ve bought a Sonos Connect:amp and some B&W loudspeakers (ceiling) for my new kitchen. I read somewhere that I had to use a Chromecast Audio unit to play music through voicecommands (Google mini) I can play music through the Sonos amp by choosing "Kitchen-cast" but not through chromecast audio. No sound. How do I solve this? Is there any setting I must do in the Sonos app? Has anyone got this to work? Thanks.
Help! Google assistant works fine on my Sonos system for everything except music playback. Assistant music playback works fine on all other devices in the house, just not Sonos. Weather, general web enquiries all work fine, but here’s an example of the music problem: ”hey google, play Mumford and sons” ”Alright, playing Mumford and sons on YouTube music” ”sorry, I don’t know how to help with that”. or ”hey google, play bbc radio 4 on tunein radio” ”ok, playing BBC radio 4 on tunein” ”sorry, I don’t know how to help with that yet”. Already tried: [list] [*]Removing and re-adding assistant [*]Removing and re-adding YouTube music [*]powering off and on Sonos speakers [*]powering off and on house router [/list]
I've just got my Beam. Very impressed with the sound quality and the ease of setup, my TV is a 9 year old Sharp Aquos and I thought I'd end up using the optical cable but was very happy to discover Aquos Link is, in fact, HDMI-CNC! So, all working. Good stuff. I knew GA integration was a bit quirky but I was really frustrated not to be able to pause Netflix or YouTube with GA. "OK Google, pause" just resulted in "sorry, there was an error". Once paused (via the app on my phone), a simple "ok Google, play" gets it started again. I tried renaming the Beam but no luck. Strangely though, an "ok Google, pause" works with Google Play Music. After fiddling and searching for a while my son eventually suggested "OK Google, pause Netflix/YouTube", which, to my delight, works! This isn't a big deal but are there a lot of these inconsistencies? I'm wondering if there's other functionality that I might discover seems not to work as my phrasing isn't quite right.
Hi everyone Just started to use Google Assistant on my impressive new Sonos Beam. The problem is that my Android phone picks up my instruction at the same time. The phone then echoes everything but with a different accent!! I have tried switching my phone (Oneplus 6t) to silent but phone still reacts separately. Anyone have a similar issue... And solution??
The speakers in my kitchen are driven by a Sonos Connect Amp. I have Sonos products on all floors. When configuring Google Voice Services, it sees all floors, but only sees my Play. Connect Amp and Bar/Subwoofer are not seen. shall I keep digging or is it impossible? Thank you.
Hello Everyone, I live in the Netherlands and I recently purchased a Sonos Beam with 2 Play 1 (all in the living room) and an IKEA/Sonos speaker for the bedroom. I also have a Google Home Hub. I managed to play Spotify properly on the Google Home Hub using voice control and I also manage to play Spotify on all Sonos speakers using the Sonos Android App. I have the Beam connected to a Sony Android TV and, if I ask it to play Spotify, it automatically turn on the TV and plays Spotify, but I cannot manage to use Google assistant to play Spotify on the Beam (and the 2 Play 1) having the TV off. Similarly, I cannot use google assistant to play Spotify on the IKEA speaker in the bedroom: when I ask Google assistant to play music on that speaker, it says that he is going to play Spotify on that speaker, but eventually ti says he cannot help with it yet. Does anybody had a similar case? How can I fix it? Thanks a lot!!!
The voice service used to work very well before using my phone and then just stopped working. I went and bought a google home mini to see if that would work but same result. I have reset everything but still no result. I have a google play subscription I say " OK Google, play classical music in the living room". response is "alright, classical music from google play playing on living room, sorry I'm not sure how to help you yet" and "sorry I cant help with that yet". I have also tried to play in the kitchen (I have Sonos play 1 in the kitchen as well), but the same response. I have tried to unlink the service from my phone and use my tablet instead , but same responses. Google home app shows the speaker connected through sonos in the living room and kitchen. I have contacted the tech support but have had no luck yet
Hi, i have a google home in my kitchen. When a song is playing and I ask it to be added to my library, it adds it. When I try to do the same when music is playing through my beam, google says that it is not able to do add the song to my library. I am the only user set up on the beam. Does anyone know why this might be? Thank you
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?
As the title says, I know it is possible to do via the app by adding a Room/Group to another one which is currently playing and the music will be played in sync. As it is a bit annoying to always open up the app when I move rooms, I'd like to just be able to give a voice command (using Google Home) to handle the above mentioned actions. Example: Currently playing a Spotify playlist in the living room on a Play One stereo pair. I want to go to the kitchen (where another Sonos 1 is currently sitting not playing anything), so I'd like to tell my Google Home for example: "Extend music to the kitchen" and after returning to the living room something like "Stop playing in the kitchen". I guess it is not possible that way up to now, so I suggest including something like this in the future, because that would make it much easier to enjoy multi-room music. The constant fiddling with the app is a real disturbance given the fact, that voice assistants are now supported (another example: Alarm
I have a sonos one and other older sonos. When I go into Sonos app and choose 'voice services', and follow the steps - google, add to sonos, select the sonos one (by name of where it is in home), 'go to google assistant app', 'continue' And it just hangs saying 'just a sec'. I tried unlinked sonos from google home, extra steps appeared in the sequence above prompting me to link it again. I am in Australia I was in the beta program and it worked then - on a different sonos system (but same account). Any idea what is wrong? Thx Ian
