When I say pause or rewind, the command does not work unless I say "rewind chrome cast 5 seconds". If I just say rewind or pause, the response I get is that it does not know how to do that yet. Any way to make Google Assistant perform the commands directly to the chromecast without having to specify?
On the google assistant site it says you can tell google "i like this song" or "thumbs up" and it will like/dislike the currently playing song on spotify. But when i play spotify via sonos speakers setup with google assistant and i tell it "thumbs up" or "i like this song" it just says "sorry i cant do this yet". any idea why this doesn't work? i tried relinking spotify etc but that doesnt help
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]
I have the Sonos One speaker that supposedly has Google Assistant built in. It is recognized by the system and plays music without a problem. I have gone through the whole install routine for getting Google Assistant to install and the app and it says it is installed. But nothing happens after Hey Google -- no response whatever. One issue I noticed in installation -- the instructions say that the devices appear and you choose if you want Google Assistant on each particular device. I never get that opportunity. At the end of installing Google Assistant after Voice control, I just get a message that says GA is now operating. I've tried removing the sonos and google assistant apps from my iPhone and reinstalling. I say something like "hey Google, play the beatles in the kitchen" (the name I have to the One). Nothing happens. Any suggestions?
Hi, Last Bestbuy's flyer is advertising that Google assistant will be available on Sonos in Canada as of July 9th. Is it possible to confirm whether this is true or not ? [img]https://cdn.iphoneincanada.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/sonos-google-assistant.png[/img] thanks
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
Can’t figure out the correct google assistant command to tell the beam to switch audio to tv output instead of Spotify after listening to music. Any one figure it out? When i used Alexa, it was “switch beam to tv”’or something similar. If it matters, I’m also using a Logitech harmony to control the tv through assistant integration.
I have recently purchased Sonos speakers and have added Google Play Music. I don't have an extensive library of uploaded music in GPM, rather I have saved artists and then browse Google's entire library. That said, I can only see my uploaded music on the Sonos app. Is that the way it is designed?
It has been imposible to connect my sonos one gen2 with Google assistant. Alexa works, but will not control Spotify, so I can listen to music but need my phone to pause, fast forward, selector, etc. Very dissapointed. Chatted with support, no solution. I have a JBL smart speaker, installation was a breeze, works perfect with Spotify, smart switches etc.

Hi, I'm using my Sonos One speakers with Google Assistant. Some more details on my set-up: [list] [*]I'm using my setup in Belgium. But I had to set my Sonos account to USA, due to stupid location limitations... [*]My Google Assistant language is Dutch (Netherlands), as Belgian Dutch is not yet supported by Google on smartspeakers [/list] Here's an issue that I'm facing... I can use most Google Actions without any issues. But as soon as there's media playback inside the action, there seems to be a problem. 2 examples of impacted actions are [url=https://assistant.google.com/services/a/uid/000000511c330486?hl=nl_nl]VRT Nieuws [/url](the Belgian public broadcast) and [url=https://assistant.google.com/services/a/uid/000000b364209f9a?hl=nl_nl]NOS[/url] (the Dutch public broadcast). Both actions allow users to listen to the latest radio news. However, they don't work on Sonos devices, while they work on smartphone and Google speakers without issues. Is there a general issue th
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.
