Hi, I'm looking in to buy a Sonos play 5, currently I have a couple of Google assistant smart speakers. I was wondering if I could pair/sync them with a Sonos play 5 so that I can play the same music across devices or play only on certain devices. Thanks for your help.
Hi everyoneNew Sonos user here. I’ve set my Beam Gen 2 and pair of One SLs (living room) with Google Voice, and I’ve also linked a Google Home Mini (kitchen) to the Sonos in the hope that:I can use the mini in the kitchen to control music on the Sonos system in the living room; I can transfer whatever is playing in the living room to the kitchen and vice versa; and I can duplicate whatever is playing in the living room in the kitchen and vice versa.Please can somebody let me know if this is possible? The problem’s I’m having are:When I try and transfer or duplicate music (e.g. by saying “play in the living room as well” it says it doesn't recognise that command? If I ask the google home mini to play something it defaults to playing on the Sonos system - I would have thought I’d need to specify that I wanted it to play in the living room and it would default to the kitchen?Any input greatly appreciated! Thanks
When I initially set up my Sonos ONE Gen 2 speaker it worked absolutely fine. I then got a separate Sonos ONE but without the mic function in order to set up stereo sound.I'm not sure if it was since then or after but whenever I ask Google to play music from Spotify on my Sonos I have to initially ask it twice - Google will respond saying "ok, playing .... On Spotify" but then this is followed by silence until o repeat the command.Similarly, when I try to cast from Spotify, I will often choose a song which will start playing, then cast it to my speaker but then have to pause and play the song again before it starts playing.I don't know where the problem is, but I have noticed others have mentioned similar issues on these forums a year ago. I was hoping it would be a temporary bug but it has now been like this for almost a year.Any ideas? My Google mini works flawlessly (and has full Google assistant functionality) but I do think the Sonos speakers are better quality so would like to ge

Hi EveryoneDoes anyone know if there is a way to turn off the lower volume when listening function for assistant on Arc?I’ve followed the instructions but it seems to only be available for google made speakers?It’s a bit annoying when I’m watching something and the assistant is triggered by dialogue from a movie, I’ve lowered the google sensitivity but can’t seem to find any setting to turn off the lower volume when listening function.Any help is appreciated, thanks!
Yet another question about the availability of Google Assistant in Finland - but please bear with me. My mother tongue is Swedish (and every Finn learns Swedish, as it is our second official language). According to this support page, Google Assistant is available in Swedish through Sonos. So why wouldn’t this feature be available for all native Swedish speakers in Finland? It feels like an arbitrary restriction that just as well could be lifted for all Finns - most of us speak English as well, so even if you wouldn’t support the largest language here, it would still be beneficial to all Sonos users.Even if this was impossible, the frequent pop-up in the app to activate a voice assistant should be removed in all locations where this is not possible - currently if feels like you are showing your customers the middle finger.
I have successfully connect a Sonos One (actually more than one speaker) to Google Assistant. Give the issues I was having with the Move, I did factory reset on one of the Sonos Ones and subsequently “reconnected” it to Google App so know that it can be done in this environment. That said I have not been able to complete task on Sonos Move. Move is visible and works on Sonos App and is Blue tooth connected to my IPhone. When I go through the Google voice activation process the following occurs…. Select Room - (Select Sonos Move) Sonos Application then takes me to Google App where a message appears at bottom of IPhone “Device Setup in Process try again later”. I push “Try Again” button on IPhone. Google App then looks for my device - “Sonos Move” appears and I push “NEXT” blue button. “Allow this device to use your Google Assistant - Sonos Move”….Push “ALLOW” blue button. Google App then goes into a search mode “Connecting to device”….where a message appears “there may b
There seems to be a really old thread on this where Sonos stopped responding, so I thought I would follow up - any update on being able to play Apple Music via Google Assistant? This feature has been available for Google Assistant for a while, and I think Sonos may be the only speaker that doesn’t do this in the market. Any update?
Sonos devices are becoming increasingly popular in Russia. Sellers widely advertise the ability to manage Google Assistant as a competitive advantage. However, they do not say that Google Assistant is not available in Russia. I found out about this only after the purchase and this may be not only a reason for a refund, but also a lawsuit.There is no point in selling devices with a voice assistant in Russia, since it is not supported. Customers pay money for voice control but can't use it
Hi! I've recently got an Ikea Symfonisk Bookshelf because of the great design and quality hoping to use it along with my google chromecast and assistant in order to form a streaming group with each one of them in different rooms. However, I can't find any way to sync the products since Sonos doesn't have the voice services available in my country. The thing is that I'm only really interested in using all three devices for streaming music together so I'm looking for a way to be able to add the Sonos Symfonisk in my Google Home app only as an additional speaker, I don't need the voice service at all. Does anyone know any solution? I'm unfortunately considering returning the Symfonisk unless I can find a way to solve this problem.
Our Google assitant on beam started saying “something went wrong try again in a few seconds” in the middle of the night around 4 am a couple weeks ago… it’s pretty random, it said it a couple time during the day too. I have closed the mic and removed the Google Assistant from my system but it kept saying it anyway 🤯. The only solution I have is to mute all my sono hardware before going to sleep but sometimes I forget 🤦🏼♀️. Is there a way to stop it or to make a routine to mute all speakers during the night?
If you have Google Assistant, a Nest Doorbell with visitor announcements and Sonos Ones, Sonos One SLs, and Play:1s, will the announcements play on just the Ones or on the entire system? Can you stream content via Google Assistant to just the Ones or can it play on any speaker in the ayatem?
I must admit to wanting to ditch the Sonos roam because of a few silly things that are annoying me - a lot!I use Google assistant, have been for years - so I was very happy to know I could use it with the Sonos roam - however...it isn’t great is it?Example - I say: Hey google, stop playing in one hour. It tells me it can’t set a sleep timer when there is no media playing! There is media playing.I ask to play a specific song - it doesn’t - it takes me to a playlist - always.When I plug the google home hub in and use that - to compare...it works perfectly and does everything I ask.Why is this so?
I’ve added the Sonos ARC to my Google account.It does show up as Sonos TV control, as expected, however, it can’t be used as it toggles between “Not responding” and “Connecting” and never goes through. I can’t use it to control the TV.The internet connection is stable, I’ve also tried connecting the speaker using an ethernet cable but the result is the same.I’ve created a short screen-video to show how it looks like:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdsQh0A4woc I’ve found this topic from a year ago which seems to be the same issue, but it was closed for comments without any solution
Trying to ask Google to play Pandora staton, but it tells me it looks like I have to log in again on this media provider
I only use Pandora as my music streamer, and I can use it when making requests in the Sonos app on my phone, but when I try the “Okay Google” verbal request, it acknowledges my question, but tells me that “It looks like you have to log in again to this media provider.” I’m logged in everywhere I can find. So I’m not sure where it’s wanting me to log in again.
