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.

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?
Is there a Google Assistant command that will pause the music in all sonos zones (i.e., when I go to bed at the end of the day? I've searched and can't seem to find any relevant posts. I would love to find a list of all commands, actually, but I can't find that either. Thanks for any help.
I have 4 Ones(sec gen) 2 Ones(first gen)they are part of my home theater set up and 2 Beam's They were all controlled by Alexa until the GA download. I never had any problems with Alexa however A was not as good as GA. I was and am a fan of GA. It's on both my phone and tablet The sec gen Ones and Beam's were changed from A to GA as soon as I received the GA update. No problems straight away however soon had many problems with the GA on the One(sec gen) No response to requests ask for music, radio, turn on/off. No GA problems whatsoever with the Beam's. Got so bad put A back on the two of the Ones. A works perfectly unlike GA. Will soon have A on all the Ones. Other members of the community have had similar issues with GA on Ones(sec gen) how big is the problem
Hi all There have been a lot of requests for the ability to group Sonos devices via voice command to Google Assistant. Whilst this isn't supported yet by Sonos, there is a way of doing this if you have a Logitech Harmony Hub type remote. Here are the steps I've tested: 1/ Open the Harmony Hub App>Harmony Setup; 2/ Add your Sonos players as devices; 2/ Next create an Activity - As an example, lets call this 'Group Sonos'; 3/ Click on Sonos Speakers and then using the link select the specific Sonos devices that you want to group. You can also set the default volume at this stage; 4/ Please link your GA and your Harmony Remote accounts under Add Device>Works with Google>Harmony. If already linked then please Remove the link in the Google Home App and relink. During this process you have the ability to define 'Friendly Names' - there doesn't seem to be a way of doing this any other way. I created 'Group Sonos' and 'Sonos Everywhere' as friendly names; 5/ Save the Act
This works fine on all my other Google Home devices, also using YouTube Music as their primary streaming service. Here if the command I issue verbally to Google Assistant: "OK Google, Play instrumental pop songs" Unlike the Google Home, which starts playing an instrumental pop song channel or playlist, the Sonos responds with: "Sure, playing instrumental pop on YouTube Music" "Sorry it looks like the requested content isn't currently available on YouTube Music" This seems like a bug that someone should look into. Or am I doing something wrong?
Both speakers connected by ethernet to router. No command problems with Alexa Many with GA. Very hit and miss can sometimes take 4,5,6 commands to get a response.Want to stop music I get the audible note the light greys out I can just hear the music in the background then the light becomes bright again and the music is full on. Regularly have to physically turn both speakers off.due to command problems not just the stop command This is irrespective wherher I have my GA tablet or phone in the room. Have uninstalled/installed GA on a number of occasions still have the problem. Have 4 Ones and 2 Beam's all with GA in other rooms gno command problem with any of them
I have a Google Assistant routine invoked by the voice command "Local news" (it plays a radio station from TuneIn as a Sonos Favorite, because Sonos GA has a bug playing it directly). Today I saw a repeat of a problem I've seen before. I said "Local news", and Sonos GA said "Sorry, I can't play local news yet. ". I said it again, same response. Said it again, this time it gave the correct response and played the radio station. I checked my Google Assistant transcript, and it shows that it heard "Local news" all 3 times. Any idea what might cause this bug?
When I ask Google to play a song on Spotify through my Beam, it will say: "OK, here's [song]. Sorry, it looks like you haven't set up Spotify on your Sonos app. To play from Spotify, link the same account on both Sonos and Google Assistant." I have linked and unlinked the same account on both the Sonos app and the Google Assistant app a number of times, and still can't get it to work. Is there something I'm missing?
I have 3 Google homes and a Samsung Note9 and have years of experience with google assistant. Have repeatedly followed instructions and online tips and tricks to no avail. Google assistant is setup however the white indicator light appears and freezes upon being asked a question. Please help, thank you!
Hi, I have set up a play one in my bedroom. I have a 5.1 sonos system in the living room (play1s/playbar/sub). I can play music through the Sonos app on my android phone but the Play One will not open apps via voice command.

Hey, do you also have a problem with the sensitivity of Google Assistant's microphone in Sonos one v2? Sometimes, even from a distance of 2-3 meters, it is difficult to start an assistant. After switching to Alexa, I am able to call her from the other room ... Is this a software problem and will be fixed?
I've been trying to get Google voice services set up on my Beam (living room) and One (bedroom). For whatever reason, the Google Assistant app can find my One in the bedroom, but it can't find my Beam in the living room. When switching back to Alexa, it finds both speakers in both rooms just fine. I read somewhere that having a Google Home in the same room as one of these Sonos speakers might affect this. I did indeed have a Google Home in the same "room" as the Beam, but I have since changed that. Any idea what's going on? I tried on both my 5GHz and 2.4GHz networks and still no luck.
After going through the set up with my sonos one speaker, the software keeps popping up with “device not found”. I have tried unplugged and rebooting both devices. I have also tried reloading the app with no resolution. Can I get some assistance in getting google assistant to function on my device? Thank you in advance. Refards, sound menace
