Hey y’all. I have a Sonos Play:5 (Gen 2) set up in my living room and I recently purchased a Google Nest Mini (Gen 2) to control it. I’ve set everything up to the point where I can tell the Nest to do things like pause and start music on the Sonos, but when I try to command the Nest to play a specific artist / genre / playlist etc. (e.g. “Hey Google, play jazz on Sonos in the living room”), it replies with the following error message: “Sorry, it looks like Apple Music isn’t currently supported on the living room”. I have set up Apple Music as the default music service on the Nest, and have logged into the same Apple Music account on both devices. I’m a bit puzzled by the error message, since I’m pretty sure I was able to control Apple Music on the Sonos via the Nest at an earlier stage of setting the two devices up. But maybe I’m just misremembering. I’ve read suggestions elsewhere online that controlling Apple Music on a Sonos Play:5 via the Nest just isn’t supported. In any case, doe
There are posts on here that have been locked that are over 1-year old requesting YouTube music 'likes' in the Sonos app. Please action this or allow Sonos speakers as a target for Google cast so we can cast directly from YTM on phones and like there. Yours faithfullyA new Arc/sub/one user
Hi, Thank you for these beautiful sound system. I have a boring problem. As said in the title, I must launch two times the music to have it started. After it's OK. But when I come back after few hours, I still need again to push play two times. -This does not appear with jack connection-This appear with Android Sonos S2 app-This happen when I say "OK Google start music..." Thanks for your help.
Bonjour, Ca fait bientôt 6 mois que mon google assitant ne fonctionne plus sur mon enceinte move. Lorsque je demande de la musique, elle me répond : Excusez moi, Move n'est pas accessible en ce moment. J’ai tout réinitialiser, tout réinstaller, le problème est identique. Es ce que quelqu’un peu m’aider svp ? Merci !!
I’m sure this is a simple question but I was unable to find a clear answer. I have a Google home & plan on getting a Sonos Gen 2. I don’t don’t to replace my G Home because it is my understanding that Sonos isn’t a fully capable of Google Assistant. Will I be able to mute the assistant on the Sonos and use Google Home to command it to play music on the Sonos? Also is that correct that Sonos is not a fully functional assistant?
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
I have a Sonos beam and use Google home, since we got the beam about 13 months ago I have used Broadcast on the beam to send and receive broadcasts. Until this week I swapped my router and broadcasts stop sending, I get the ‘No other speakers connected on your network’ message.I can receive broadcasts still and play music on every other speaker even when requested via the beam. Contacted Sonos who eventually said the feature is not available on the beam, despite a yard of it working! Tried my broadband provider and Google who both said it’s a Sonos issue...obviously!!! Still Sonos deny it’s their issue.…Time to look for another speaker system I think
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 all, In the past few months I have noticed some major negative changes in how we have to communicate with our Sonos system for Spotify.I have a Sonos Arc+2x One SL+Sub, 1x One in Sitting room, 1x One in Office, and a Sonos Roam.Ever since I got the system a few years ago I could simply say “Hey google, play music/ specific song” etc. and it would play on the speaker that heard me say Hey Google.In the past months every time I ask it to do anything it always askes me “I also need to know which device to use. Try saying that again and include the devices name”.This never used to happen, and even when I try include the devices name, about 50% of the time it says the same thing even though I use the speaker name. My wife is ready to throw the system out.This is with Every. Single. Spotify command. even just “Turn volume down” or “stop music”.Is there a way to disable having to include the devices name?Is this a feature that changed recently that anyone else has to deal with?Any help wou
Hello all!I recently bought my first Sonos product, a Sonos One, and successfully integrated with Google Home.It is nice to be able to use music services unsing Google Assitant, but what about the music in our phones? Can we expect to be able to launch and manage music stored on our phones with voice commands?Thanks!
I was not able to broadcast from or to Sonos beam with google assistant. Suggestions on similar threads have been not effective in solving the issue. I got said there are no speakers associated with this account, in response to tentatives to broadcast from Sonos beam.The solution is to have exactly the same address associated with the Sonus beam and google home account including street number. Originally they were a little different.Once I set the same address the issue is solved.

Hi there,I was using google assistant on my Sonos One without any problem, and since yesterday, I have a problem : now if I ask vocally to play music on amazon or a radio on tunein like I was doing before, the assistant answers “one device at least is not available, I suggest you to configure it again...” (approximate traduction of the french message).I tried to reinstall Google Assistant using the Sonos Android App, but the problem persists.Note that I can play radios and music on the Sonos from my smartphone ; it’s only the Google Assistant of the Sonos One that does not seem to find how to play music on the Sonos One it self...
Hello,I am in the process of building my Sonos system across my house and am absolutely loving it. I do have a couple questions about Google Assistant support:On the Google Home, there is an option under Accessibility to play a sound once the unit has finished recognizing your command. This is in addition to the sound that plays when you say the wake word. I am blind, so this audio queue can be helpful to know when the unit has finished with my command. I suspect this may be one of those things that Google doesn’t give third-party speakers access to, but will it ever be possible to stop an alarm or timer just by saying “stop” without saying Hey Google first? This works on Google Home speakers.
