Hello, In my living room I have a Playbase and 2 Ones as surrounds, when I have my Playbase directly connected to my network I cannot enable Assistant in this room. The Sonos ones I have in my bedroom have no issues. Once I remove the physical connection and use Wi-Fi, I am able to configure this without issues. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this issue?
Hi all! I tried installing my two Sonos One today with Google Assistant. First I installed One of them and tried it out and when i give command to lower volume it only lowers the One with Google assistant set up. I then installed the other One in hopes that this would solve the issue but then it doesnt respond in english anymore, it responds in Swedish(!!) Im a Swede so I know 😉 help?
Just bought a Sonos one. I have Spotify Premium as my Default Provider in Google Home, it works on the 3 other google minis I have. But Sonos one keeps saying I am sorry I cant help with that, or I dont know how to do that. If I change my default music service to Google Play Music it works perfectly ( still got a couple of days remaining on current subscription). I have unlinked and relinked spotify on google home and the sonos app but nothing seems to work, anyone had a similar issue?
I'm not surprised that I can't play the music in my local (NAS) library with the new GA/Sonos integration. However, is it also not possible to play music that I've uploaded to my Google Music account? I can do this using the Sonos app. If I try "Hey Google, play (artist) in the office" I get "OK (artist) from Google Play Music playing in the office. Sorry looks like the subscription tier for Google Music is not supported." I've also added "from my library" to the command and that doesn't help.
I have a play bar and two sonos ones (as the back speakers) and a sub. I also have Google home devices throughout the house. Because the Sonos ones are connected to Google assistant, it has the (usually helpful) feature that it will lower the TV volume on the surround sound system when in the living Room. Unfortunately, if someone elsewhere in the house says a Google command to the various other devices throughout, the living Room surround system volume still gets lowered for the command, which is incredibly annoying to anyone in the living Room not understanding why their volume is being lowered. Is there a work around for this?
I'm new here. I'm likely to buy a Sonos amp for my back yard speaker setup. Will there be an update to AMP so that I can add the Sonos amp to a speaker group in Google home? That would clutch it for me. If not, will I have to find a Chromecast audio on eBay and use that? Are there alternatives since CCA is discontinued? Thanks!
I changed ISPs yesterday, including setting up a new modem, but kept my original modem as a router (new modem is in bridge mode) - so all my devices are still using the same networks as before. Everything is working smoothly except for Google Assistant on my Sonos One (gen 2) stereo pair. It kept saying “something went wrong” and “there was a glitch”, so after rebooting it didn’t work, I removed GA with the intention of re-adding it. Except now I can’t re-add it! Every single time, it takes me to the Google Assistant app, which repeatedly “can’t find any devices”. My iPhone and the Sonos Ones are definitely on the same network. Things I’ve tried, with multiple attempts in between at adding GA: - Rebooting the router - Rebooting the Sonos One - Removing all accounts from the Google Assistant/Google Home apps except for mine, which is the same email address as the one associated with the Ones - Exiting and restarting those two apps and the Sonos apps - Restarting my phone - Remov
I've had a One for about a year now, and it has worked fine the whole time. When google home integration came out I linked it and it has been working fine as a unit until today. I came home and tried to get google to play spotify and was met with the response "Sorry I cannot connect to spotify at the moment". I also attempted to play through a spotify instance via my phone as I had many times before. The device "Living room" appears, and I can attempt to connect to play over it. However, it just stays in this state saying connecting indefinitely. No idea why this has occurred as nothing has changed. The wifi remains the same, all other home devices still connect fine. To play any music I have to go through the Sonos app :( :( and this is very inconvenient. I've cycled power and reset the device, but this continues to occur. Any suggestions as how to fix would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Hei. Jeg får ikke til å starte radio på mine stemmestyrte sonos høyttalere. Fungerer fint når jeg gjør det samme på Google home mini. Får bare beskjed av mine sonos høyttalere om at den kan starte radio på en av mine andre høyttalere. Får også til og starte radio på Google home mine via sonos beam eller one. Noen som har en fiks på dette?
I have a play:1 and have added the Google assistant voice service successfully to the Sonos app. I linked everything and for a success message. I can see my speaker in the Google home app. When i go to Services->Music in the Google home app, Sonos is not available as a choice. Only Google play music and YouTube music, and no default provider are.options. below that are Deezer and Spotify neither of which I have. The last option says, Other Music Services but it is not clickable. When I try to tell google to "play Phish from Sonos on the patio speaker" it always attempts to play from Google play music but then gives me this error "Sorry, it looks like you need to log in again on Google play music on the Sonos app". So I do that, it says it's successful then o try again and same problem. How do I get google assistant to recognize Sonos as a music provider and properly link my accounts?
Hi all I have recently been experiencing problems with my Sonos One with GA. Everything was working fine until around a couple of weeks ago when Google does not always respond when saying "Hey Google" or "Okay Google", even when the chime sounds. The problem appears to have been getting worse. Also recently, when setting timers (say for cooking etc.) when the time is up and we tell Google to "stop the timer" or "cancel timer" etc., it stops for a bit but then starts beeping after a few seconds. As you can imagine this can be infuriating and the only way to stop it has been to switch off the Sonos from the mains. All in all, i.e. general responsiveness of the Sonos to GA commands seems to be fairly laggy when compared to our Google Home minis which are a lot more snappy and responsive. I'm wondering whether these are just teething issues which Sonos is working through and whether anyone else has experienced patchy performance? Thanks TT
I was really excited to update my Sonos system with Google Assistant. I use both Alexa and Google Assistant for different tasks because they are good a different things. When I updated yesterday, I was really disappointed that I can't run both at the same time. Am I doing something wrong? Or do I indeed have to pick one or the other?
Googlr is not working in Sonos one gen 2 . Before I was using Alexa and is was working okay. But Google became available so I change to Google, but Google is not responding to my requests. All it can do is play and stop the music and that only sometimes. I am the only one that has this problem?
Just got off the phone with CS and thought it was fixed but nope... I was running one Sonos one for GA but decided to purchase another to complete my surround sound system. Had a hell of a time getting GA to work with both Sonos ones hooked up in the surround sound but CS was able to walk me through disconnecting the surrounds and setting the GA back up and running. Problem now is that when I try and add the speakers back into surround sound it takes away the GA function. Can you not run GA with a speaker in a surround sound set up?
Following the instructions for Google Assistant and it by passes the screen to which I need to sign in to add the account
Following the instructions for Google Assistant I tried to look at removing the service from a speaker in the sonos app , and I don't see Google Assistant I looked in my GH on IOS and and do see speakers. I can and did unlink it there I readded the account I still do not see Google assistant in the sonos app under the room name. This was part of sonos trouble shooting steps to remove it. I am in Canada I am running latest sonos and latest IOS I have A playbar and sub And first gen PLay 5 Using My google home I try saying "OK Google Play pink on Master bedroom" and it says it can't do that right now. I tried "OK Google Play pink in the Master bedroom" and it says it can't do that right now
I have both Alexa and google assistant integrated into my house. I’m disappointed that there doesn’t seem to be a way to set up a stereo pair of Ones with one speaker doing Alexa and the other doing google assistant. It fits with what was described as one assistant per speaker. This would also solve the problem of both speakers in one room going off at the “Alexa” or “hey google” wake work. I currently mute one of the two mics because of this repeatedly happening. Would be nice to be able to use the other speaker with the mic muted for google assistant. Am I missing something?
Hi In the last few days Google assistant as been acting strange. For example if I say "hey Google, turn on the bedroom reading lights" it turns on all the lights in the bedroom. It works perfectly on my google home device or via my phone. From testing I've learnt if I get really close to the mic and speak really slowly it understands what I'm saying. Anyone else having this issue? It was working perfectly. Ryan
Google Assistant on my Sonos One had a problem right from the start: about half the time I would speak a command and then it would sit waiting for 5-10 seconds before the light started to flash and it started processing the command. No discernible pattern to when this would happen or not happen. Then about 3-4 weeks ago, the delay suddenly went away, and I haven't encountered it since - until today. Suddenly since this morning it's back with a vengeance. The response delay is there on at least half of the commands. What the heck is up with Sonos and Google Assistant? Can't they fix this and make it stay fixed??
Hey guys for the past week or so and after working like a charm.. Google assistant on my One has been a mess. First of all if i say Hey Google all good but to actually follow my command i need to scream at it. Today i screamed play it played and then out of nowhere told me how far a Minessota bar is from me. HAHA. also if i dont turn off the assistant on my phone then its a total mess i ll say one thing the One is going to do one thing and my phone something completely different. but most of the time i say hey google it beeps and then just doesnt do anything.. Any help? Thanks

Anyone else having an issue with Google Assistant and Spotify? Google assistant works fine when I use it but, no one else in my house can get it functioning. The error they receive is that the Spotify account must match on both Sonos and Google assistant. I have Spotify Family so everyone can manage their own playlists. Sonos does not seem to recognize multiple Spotify accounts, therefore only my account is logged on the Sonos. Anyone figured out a work around?
