I've tried on my Beam, a Sonos One Gen 2 in my kitchen and my Sonos One Gen 2's as surrounds in my living room. None of them will play a broadcast message no matter where it originates from. I've checked for updates, everything is up to date. All of them will send a message but non of them will play any. Otherwise, the GA seems to be working fine. This is quite inconvenient though. Hope there is an update to fix this soon.
[feature request] make it possible to have both Google Home and Alexa as voice services in one speaker
This was the reason I spent quite some money on getting 5 Sonos One's and Sonos Connect. The whole idea here was to limit number of devices you need to have a) multi-room audio b) Google Home assistant and c) Alexa assistant throughout your home. This is critically important for me and new Google Home update doesn't give me any value if I have to turn off Alexa to use it. I badly need BOTH.
Google Assistant on Sonos is giving me a problem trying to play my favorite local news station News 1130 from TuneIn as I commonly do on Alexa and Google Home, for example on Google Home: "Hey Google, play News 1130 radio" = "All right, playing News 1130 on TuneIn", station plays. But with Google Assistant on Sonos One: "Hey Google, play News 1130 radio" = "All right, playing CKWX on TuneIn" = "Sorry, it looks like that content isn't available on TuneIn" (CKWX is an alternative name for News 1130). Saying "play CKWX" instead produces the same response. Google Home recognizes "play CKWX" as an alternative to "play News 1130", and the station plays correctly either way. Selecting and playing the TuneIn station News 1130 from the Sonos app to the Sonos One works fine. Playing other TuneIn stations on the Sonos One by saying "Hey Google, play (station name)" seems to work fine in a few other tests. So for some reason the request to play this particular TuneIn station is bein
I have a Pandora plus paid account which allows listening without commercials. That account is appropriately linked to Google home (I can see it in my Linked Media, and have tried unlinking and linking again, which registers fine). Sonos speakers are linked in Google home. However when I play a Pandora station and start it with Google home mini or other home assistant device and send it to Sonos (which I specify "ok Google play x station on Pandora on X sonos", and Google responds saying it is playing on Pandora on X sonos), it plays one or two songs and goes straight to a commercial, like it is a free Pandora account. This is not an artist discovery thingy, but a true commercial (which I never hear listening to hours of Pandora on my tablet/phone). Is anyone else having this issue, or have a fix? Pandora plus works great if I play it straight on my Sonos; works fine if I play straight on Google home, or from Google home to a Chromecast audio device into my sonos; only doesn't work
After the outage earlier today I finally have everything working and I couldn't be happier (I can play, pause and change volume on my old Play 3s with my voice which is all I wanted for two years now). But it's a little unfortunate that in a room with (1) a Google home and (2) a sonos speaker, I still have to append "on the kitchen Sonos" to my requests to begin playing music (otherwise the music plays on the answering Google device). The Google home app lets you configure what the default device is for playing music, and it lists not only my various Google speakers but also my vizio TVs on the network, etc., but it strangely doesn't list my sonos speakers. Is there a way to make this happen?
My Beam is acting glitchy again. Voice command to ask Spotify to play was working the other day now it isn't. It says "I can't do that here but you can ask me to play it on one of your other devices." However, if I use Spotify Connect, it works. All other voice commands work.
Hi, I now have Google Assistant on my Sonos Beam[img]https://uploads-eu-west-1.insided.com/sonos-en/attachment/e7803936-b995-48f2-83b6-60ce019dd071.png[/img][img]https://uploads-eu-west-1.insided.com/sonos-en/attachment/4b8e989c-638f-4469-bff0-3a237bf84264.png[/img] but the assistant recognizes the Sonos speaker as a TV. So now each time I say “Turn off the Bedroom TV” it doesn’t know which TV to turn off because it thinks the Sonos is a TV.
almost 50% of the stations that i ask google assistant to play on the sonos won't play and i will get this error. google assistant says: sorry it looks like the requested content isn't currently available on tunein. This is not true. these stations work when i use the sonos app to play. furthermore, these stations work when my friends use google home to play the same stations i want to play. so basically, when i ask google assistant to play these stations for me i get that error but if i use the sonos app it will play the stations.
Hi, I used to live in the UK and bought my two Sonos 3 speakers there in 2015. I moved to the US in 2017 and despite changing my location on my online profile and updating everything, I am unable to access services here in the US, specifically the google assist voice control (it says your country doesn't support this - although US is the only one to support it. I also can't get the Sirius XM station to come up in the service option. I've deleted the app and reinstalled but that doesn't do anything. I've even got 'Controllers' - new ipad and iphone that I bought here and they don't have the service on. Can anyone help.
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.

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
Ok, Sonos [b][i]MOD EDIT: PROFANITY[/i][/b]. I'm from Ukraine and I bought two Sonos One and planning to buy Beam in the future. I bought it even though Alexa do not work with Russian language at all as I heared that there will be Google Assistant which is working perfectly on my Android device. And now I [b][i]MOD EDIT: PROFANITY[/i][/b] can not activate it, as it says that's it's not available in my country. Again it's working perfectly on my Android device. I can assure you it understands Russian perfectly, moreover almost everyone person from post USSR country understands Russian and can talk on it. So what the [b][i]MOD EDIT: PROFANITY[/i][/b] problem to activate it as it was done by Google themselves? I bought two Ones, a Sub and was planning to buy Beam. Not planning now for sure.

I've seen the topic of 'casting', specifically in terms of how the Google/Sonos integration works, discussed in various topics recently. I thought it might be useful and fun (for me at least) to have a separate topic. First, I'd define casting very broadly. I'll say that casting is the process of interacting with one electronic device (A) for the purpose of causing a second device B to playback audio or video without wires. This definitely is broader than one you'd typically think of as casting, but I think it's worth defining it this way to better understand the interactions. Maybe 'control' is better word to use, with casting being a subset, but control would go well beyond audio/video, and I wish to limit the scope. So second, in an attempt to categories the types of casting, given how I've defined it, here what I see. 1 - Stream casting (probably a better word for this) - This is where device A actually passes the audio/video content to device B. Device A could be ge
Just got a beam and sub for my HT and a few times in the last couple of days GA has activated when some on the TV says something like "okay. Cool." It's decidedly uncool because it lowers the volume to the point of not being able to make out dialog for what seems like eternity (probably 10s)
Ive just tried to change radio stations using assistant and now suddenly my speaker isn't available anymore eventhough it was just playing. This is just a recent example but there just seems to be endless issues and incomplete functionality with assistant. Nobody from Sonos is explaining what's happening or why we had to wait so long for something so bad.
When is use Google Assistant and say: "Play Radio Paradise on Kitchen Sonos" the assistant responds "Sorry, it looks like the requested content isn't currently available on TuneIn" If I ask Assistant to play it on my Kitchen Chromecast it works fine. This has been happening for several days now. I couldn't figure out where to report this as a bug?
I have a google home mini and the Sonos beam in the same room, and they are linked in the Google Assistant app. However, when I ask a question such as “Hey Google, what time is it?”, both the Home Mini and the Beam answer (not in sync with each other, so they talk over each other). Is there any way to get just one or the other to answer, but not both?
