Hello All,I am trying to play white noise on my Google assistant through Sonos continuously throughout the night. No matter what I do, it only plays for one hour and stops, waking us up. On Google Home, you can say “Ok Google, Play White music for 10 hours” and it will do so. On Sonos, you can say the same thing, but it will stop after one hour. Makes no sense? I have Sonos in every room and gave up my Google Home so hoping I don’t need to bring it back!Thanks
I have connect my Play:1 with Google assistant and am frequently using my Google Nest Hub to start songs, control playback and volume. But one thing never works, asking it to play another song."Play SONG 1 on Sonos" Works like a charm, but if am currently playing as song and say something like:"Play the song SONG 2"I get the following response:"okay, playing SONG 2 on [name of my Sonos speaker]. I'm sorry that mode isn't available right now" So obviously Google Home is recognising that I'm currently using the Spotify service on Sonos but something (on the Sonos side?) is stopping it. What?
I have a Sonos Beam connected to my Sony TV and usually control the volume by asking Google. It it still working but rather than asking Google to increase the volume to say 4 or 5 I now have to ask for volume to increase to 60 or more. I don’t think I’ve changed anything but maybe I’ve done something weird? I also sometimes change volume through my iPhone (mentioning this in case it’s relevant). Can anyone shed some light on this please?Many thanks
I have had the Sonos Beam for around a year now and been using it via ARC to an old Samsung TV. In addition to this I have 3 Sonos One around the house, and a Sub used together with the BeamThe Beam works perfectly via ARC for TV sound, but I have an issue with the Google Assistant. I am able to turn OFF the TV via google voice commands, but when trying to turn it ON nothing happens (the Beam light blinks for a while and then stops).Strange thing is that if I issue the turn ON command to any of the Sonos One speakers around the house, it works and the TV turns ON!Just got a new LG TV (65NANO956) and was hoping the issue would disappear, but same thing happens. Sonos One speakers can turn on the TV, but the beam does nothing (all other commands like “turn off”, works).System is setup via SonosNet, and the Beam is the access point.Any suggestions to what might be happening here, as the TV evidently does support turning on through the Google Sonos integration as seen with the One speakers
I have a Sonos Move and I am using Google Assistant. Now that there is Voice Match, how do I get my Sonos to hear my voice to use my Spotify Account and get another voice for another Spotify Account? The way we log onto the Sonos is through one account right now but seem to only be able to use one Spotify account for both people.
I have 3 Sonos speakers (one beam, two Ones) with Google Assistant enabled in all of them. Each of them has a name (Living, Dining, Kitchen) and I have made sure that under the Google Assistant settings, ‘Default music speaker’ each one of them has been chosen, respectively. When I say “OK, Google, Broadcast <message>” I get the response “looks like there aren’t any other speakers connected on your home network so I can’t broadcast your message.” When I try the same from the Google Assistant app or the Google Home app on my iPhone, it just searches the web for that phrase. When I try the same from the Google app (so, not the Assistant, not the Home, just a third app, the Google app) it works! I have removed the voice service from all of them, delete the Google Home app and re-installed, re-set the home, but still the same. Any advice?
If I try and play music or radio through my sonos beam using Google assistant, it cuts out all the time. I have to turn on the tv and link to the sonos as the source to allow it to work. Eh? Seemed to have happened all of a sudden. Used to be able to play music through the beam without the tv needing to be on.
Google assistant not playing my tune-in radio station (problems start each time I add new Sonos device)
It seems that every time I add a new Sonos speaker (Sonos One. Move or Beam) Things get programmed in regards to Google reposing correctly to things that were were before?Example#1: If I ask Google to play (radio station) on tunein radio it responds "Sorry, it looks like that content isn't available". It was working before I added the new speaker? I use this command every morning? I can, get it to work from the Sonos app but not Google Voice anymore?Example#2 - Google voice can’t find my you tube music request. Hey Google play Elton John, “Sorry I can do that here”?Then I go through my various resets:unlink and relink “you tube music” Uninstall and reinstall “google voice” Last resort uninstall Sonos speaker and reinstall (not my favorite though!)I am able to get some things back in order but have not been example to fix Example #1 Tunein radio with Google voice. Any ideas how to fix or trouble shoot? RAY THE BATMAN
Just checking if the is my Roku TV or there is a fix? #1 Google Voice through Beam turns off and controls volume up/down but will not turn TV ON? #2 - Also: When I play music on through the Beam, what command do I say to get it back to TV without using the Sonos App? I tried variations of“Hey Google switch bedroom to TV” “Hey Google switch bedroom back to TV“Hey Google turn on bedroom to TVNone of these work?
Hei,Jeg benytter Google Assistant på mine Sonos One som er paret til stereo. På grunn av små barn i huset har jeg måtte flytte den ene høyttaleren. Og nå står den som tar i mot kommando til Google Assistant litt dumt til. Er det noen måte å endre det slik at venstre høytaler er den som tar i mot kommandoer til Google?
Hi,I have had the Arq for one month and the experience with Google assistant is really poor.My first comment is it only seems to work when I shout or get really close to the microphone. What i’d consider a ‘normal’ user experience (reasonably loud) command often doesn’t get results. My second comment is that there is a vast difference between the accuracy of Sonos Arc vs iPhone Google Assistant. I use Arq with commands and i get ‘sorry, something went wrong’, or some garbage response, or just flashing LEDS and back to music. I say the same thing on my iphone/Google Home and it’s works perfectly.
When ever I ask to play music on the Arc via Google Assistant I get the response "I cannot do that here, but you can ask me to play it on one of your other devices."Out of several Sonos speakers that are GA enabled this is the only giving me this issue.I have removed and added GA many times. I have done a complete reset on the Arc at least 3 times.The amount of issues with GA and Sonos speakers ever since going to S2 is getting beyond ridiculous now. I'm just frustrated with dealing with these issues. When I get one fixed, soon there is another bug. Any ideas what to try next?
2 weeks ago I set up our new family Sonos speaker on our home WiFi. I think we’ve spent £160 on what is essentially a high-end doorstop. I and both my parents downloaded the new app, connected to Spotify, connected Google Assistant, set up voice recognition for me and my mum. The lot. Up until now it had been working fine, e.g. Me or my mum could ask Google Assistant to play music on Spotify and it would, or, we could play music through the Spotify app. This morning I did just that and played music on the speaker, no problem, but a few hours later my mum, and then I, ask Google to play some music on Spotify. She says “I can’t do that here, but you can ask me to play on one of your other devices” (we don’t have any) - or something to that effect. So I go to my mum’s Spotify- can’t connect to the speaker, odd, because when I go to my own Spotify, it connects and plays just fine. Google Assistant is still having none of it. So I open the Sonos app on my device, and then my mum’s, and the
Sometimes I tell Google Assistant to play music (from Spotify) by a certain artist and the music plays. Other times I tell Google Assistant to play music by a certain artist and the Assistant says the music by the artist will play but nothing happens—no music. Using Sonos Two. Help!
Hi,I link my Google home and Sonos accounts and my Sonos play appears in my Google home device list. However, when I try and play Spotify through the Sonos and not the Google mini It says that it is unable to connect to the device - anyone know how to resolve this issue?I've already tried unlinking and relinking the accounts twice.Thanks
Hello! I have a Sonos 1 in the kitchen where I use Google Assistant for music, news and Spotify playback. Music works fine and plays back without issue but we often have an issue where podcasts and specifically CBC World Report playback cuts off early, usually around the same point every day with the speaker stopping the stream mid-sentence after about 4 minutes and instantly announcing “That’s all for now.”All devices updates. No issues with wifi or internet. Any advice would be much appreciated!
I have added my sonos speaker to my google home group and it will cast music to all speakers. However the sonos sound is ahead of the other speakers in the group (annoyingly so). I have tried using the sync slider in the app but it does not make a difference. How can I fix this?
