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.
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 3 Sonos speakers: Kitchen, Great Room (default), and Sunroom. When I start playing music through Google Home it defaults to Great Room. Can I use Google Assistant to turn off/on one of the other speakers? I know that I can do this through the Sonos app but I’d like to be able to do it via voice.
Hello,Im writing to start a discussion on the current state of the integration between Apple music, x Sonos and google assistant and the effects on the Sonos service.Ive gone to considerable effort and expense over the last year converting to Apple Music from Spotify, partly with an understanding Apple music works with sonos.Sonos also has Google Assistant integration. But these three things inexplicably will not work together, even though all services support one another. I feel like ive been really patient with this issue. For Sonos’ (and Apple, google’s) users, most will believe they are stupid, because they’ve set their products up wrong, or, that the sonos service doesnt work properly. They will not go to the lengths ive gone to to figure out its probably a business dispute.Its incredibly frustrating as a user that what seems to be a dispute between two or three of you, means we feel stupid, and our promised service experience remains broken. So I ask you all to get round the tabl
With my Beam connected to my Sony Bravia A8 I have potentially 3 Google Assistant devices available to fulfill my requests. Which should I enable or disable (if any) and which gives me the most control over the TV (if any)given that the Sony is also an Android device with Google Assistant built in, the Beam is plugged directly into it using eARC/HDMI and has a direct connection for controlling it, and for good measure the Google mini in the kitchen can also hear my commands. Thanks for any advice you can give!
Reaching out to the community after multiple attempts via Chat and over the Phone to support at Sonos, and trying multiple recommended solutions. I’m having this weird issue where my Sonos Arc (purchased Nov of last year) will not work with Google Assistant after an unknown length of time. I have set up Google Assistant and it will work find for an hour, 5 hours, a day, maybe sometimes even a week - then all of a sudden when I say “Hey Google”, it will just tell me “There was a glitch, try again in a few seconds” or “Something went wrong, try again in a few seconds”. I have tried the following:removing Google Assistant and re-adding multiple times removing Sonos from my Google Account multiple times unplugging Sonos Arc and plugging back in multiple times tech support made some updates to DNS settingsAfter each of the above, the Arc will work for a little period of time, then randomly go back into the “There was a glitch, try again in a few seconds” or “Something went wrong, try again
Hi, I have Google assistant controlling a play 5 speaker, when I play music the volume from the Sonos is almost inaudible but the Google speakers are quite loud. How do you balance the volume levels and have them not fall out of sync when changing the volume in the future?
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?
Hallå, varit ägare till en sonos One i snart en vecka och det har inte varit några som helst problem att prata med för att be den sätta på spotify till exempel, förrän igår. Jag har iaf själv försökt felsöka vart lösningen ligger, då det bara är spotify som krånglar med röststyrning (inte tex Ikea Trådfri lampor). När jag testade att byta språk på den, så funkade helt plötsligt det helt utmärkt med att säga till högtalaren att sätta på låtarna. Någon som varit med om liknande problem och kunnat lösa det?Hello, have been the owner of a sonos One for almost a week and it has not been any problem to talk to to ask it to turn on spotify for example, until yesterday. I myself have tried to troubleshoot where the solution is, as it is only spotify that has problems with voice control (not eg Ikea Wireless Lights). When I tried to change the language on it, all of a sudden it worked perfectly fine to tell the speaker to turn on the songs. Anyone been through similar problems and been able to
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
And suddenly, without changing anything to any settings my Dutch google assistant cannot locate my sonos speakers anymore. But the English google assistant does, really????.So deleted my speakers from google home, delete the assistant from the sonos app, re-installed the whole shabang but no go. Issue remains. Any suggestions would be welcome.
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?
Hello! I have a Google Assistant on my Sonos One. When I give it a command while playing music or something on Calm through the Sonos app (eg “Hey Google, set an alarm for 6am”) it responds with its confirmation in the loudest voice relative to the background music. Firstly, is there a way to deactivate the voice confirmation? Secondly, is there a way to reduce the volume of the voice confirmations so it is quieter than the background music I’m playing?
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’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
