I am unable to add Google Assistant to Sonos ‘Voice Services’ because I receive the warning ‘Unable to add Google Assistant’ because “… your device’s Android version is not compatible with GA”. I am running Android v5.1.1 I want to set up a Google Home speaker to control Sonos directly – [b][i]I do NOT require that I control Sonos via voice on my android mobile device.[/i][/b] [i]At present, I am able to use Google’s ‘Home App’ on my android mobile device to see the Google speakers, Chromecast etc on my network and these show that these are using Google Assistant. I should like the same facility for my Sonos speakers.[/i] [i]Is there a way of setting up Sonos to work directly with Google Assistant on Google Home speakers (I emphasise not on mobile phone) without having a mobile phone/tablet running android v6 or later? For example, is there a way to do this via the Sonos app on a Windows 10 PC? [/i]
So, I was super pumped to finally set up Google Assistant on my Sonos One, which had been Alexa-enabled since I bought it. However, I am now unable to use my most used commands; I can’t forward or rewind while listening to podcasts. I have tried saying all of the following: “forward”; “rewind”; “skip forward/backward ten seconds “; “forward/rewind 30 seconds”. ALL of those result in the message “There was an error for the Sonos One”. Is this feature not supported and is there an ETA, or am I missing something?
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??
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 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
Hi, I was so excited about Google Assistant integration coming to Sonos as I have a library of about 20,000 tracks of uploaded music in my Google Play library. Unfortunately, even after upgrading my free account to unlimited, with a 3 months free trial, I can't get the Google Assistant to play any of my uploaded music. It keeps telling me I need to re-sign-in on the Sonos app. I have tried this with no luck. Am I doing something wrong or is this functionality not yet available? It works fine with music I haven't uploaded. I can understand Google Assistant not being able to work with a free account but surely uploaded music should be accessible if you have an unlimited subscription? I do hope this functionality is coming soon as i generally only listen to my personal library, rather than new music available though music services. Many thanks Darren
I had another weird error happen today with Google Assistant on my Sonos One. I asked Google to run my morning routine as I do every day, and when it got to the command to play my news radio station, it said that it couldn't do that on this speaker, but could on one of my other Google Home speakers. ??? I tried it again later on the Sonos One, and it worked normally again. No explanation. It's not like it could have misheard something, which is what I usually think when there's an error - this is a pre-set command within a routine. Oh well, another day, another mysterious bug... I'm not sufficiently motivated by the minor problems to go back to Alexa, but the one thing that continues to really bother me is the response delay. When I speak to my other Google Home speakers, the response is almost always immediate, or at least quick. At least half the time when I speak to Google Assistant on the Sonos One, there is a lengthy response delay, anything from 5 to 10 seconds where the LED is
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 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
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 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?
When requesting a song or a radio station by voice, after saying 'ok/hey Google' this triggers the assistant on both Sonos and my Google Pixel 3 phone. The song then starts playing on my phone as well as Sonos! It is very annoying. A semi workaround is to specify the room name, i.e. Play radio on bedroom speaker, but then the radio station starts playing because the Sonos speaker received the command and it stops and starts playing again after a few seconds because the phone has sent the command!? How can I get around this?
Hi, I have a Play:3 I'm controlling with a Google home mini. In the home mini we use voice match so it recognizes who is taking (my wife or me) so I wonder if it's possible to link the sonos to two different assistant accounts so it plays my or my wife's music depending on who is taking. Do you know if it's possible?
I bought one of the sonos 1s on release as i thought alexa would be working. Alexa, play blah blah on napster. No chance so i, along with many others requested that napster be added to the list of compatible streaming services. Its been added to the list was the standard reply, except it never happened and probably never will. A lot of us requested being able to play local files too, yet another pie in the sky dream. So, speakers out of warranty and google assistant appears later than expected, no napster as a compatible service again. Are we going to get this or am i only going to be saying, hey google, youre rubbish rather than alexa, youre rubbish.
I am trying to set a recurring reminder on Sonos One using GA. I set it using my voice and set the time and actual message. However, when it reminds me, it only gives me " I have some reminders for..." not the actual reminder. I am using the same google account on GA and Sonos. I read about "show personal results" and have that selected in GA so it should work. Maybe this feature isn't working yet?? or will only be with voice match? It seems like it should work since I am using the 1 same account with both GA and Sonos. Other than this, the integration works great. Thanks
Hi, after I add Google assist to my Sonos (2 x one + playbar), system unexpectedly turn volume to maximum. After I turn volume down, system several times bring volume to maximum. I’m sure it wasn’t someones mistake or joke. The same situation repeated today - but unfortunately with only small kids and grandma, without ability to turn it off :/ I lock max volume to 50% as temporary prevention, but I’m hope your looking for better solution for this problem.
