After trying with limited success in integrating Alexa with home lights, I am thinking of trying again with Google Assistant. Is the GA integration through Sonos with Lutron Caseta solid? For example, can I group the lights and the Sonos so I can say "Hey Google, turn on the lights" to the Sonos One in my kitchen, and GA will turn on the lights in the kitchen? Or is it still sort of dumb, where I have to tell the kitchen Sonos "turn on the lights [u]in the kitchen[/u]"? I don't have the Lutron Caseta swtiches - just thinking of installing them after ecobee toasted the temperature sensor function on their Swtich+.
I currently have Sonos One's 2nd Gen in my theater setup. I've been researching and pondering what speakers to put in the rest of the house. I've been endlessly changing my mind but think I'm leaning towards the Sonos One and I've seen some 1st Gens with decent prices. I do not have experience with the first Gen. Without the updated processor and internals, does GA still function fine? I only ask cause there were few posters speculating that could be one of the reasons they were updated.
I am trying to play music on my Sonos Beam using Google Assistant. I have a Spotify Premium account. When I ask assistant to play anything (song, playlist, artist) on Spotify, it initially says "sure, playing xxx" and then after a pause says, "sorry, the requested media content isn't available for your Spotify premium tier". I am using an iPhone X for the setup. I've tried unlinking and relinking my Spotify account in both the Google Assistant and Sonos apps. I've tried deleting and reinstalling Google Assistant. I've tried disabling Google Assistant and then reenabling it. No dice! I was previously using Amazon Alexa with the Sonos Beam for a short time and Spotify was working fine (but I would prefer to be able to use Google Assistant for other reasons). If I try to play music using Google Assistant through the app on the iPhone, it will open Spotify and go to the correct artist but not actually play the song. Would really appreciate any suggestions.. it's driving me nuts!!
Okay, I have noticed a strange behavior: If I issue the command "*lamp name* x%" to my google home, it replies with a chime and sets that specific (Ikea tradfri) light to x% brightness. If I issue the same command to my Sonos one, It replies with a web search reply. Which is useless to me ;). I am sure that I set the Sonos up in the right google assistant/home group stuff, because when I simply say something like "turn lights on/off" it replies with a chime and does just that. Does anyone have a solution (or at least explanation) for this behavior?
I use Assistant on my Pixel 2XL. I also use it on a Sonos One, which is used by my whole household. We use Spotify for music. I originally had my Spotify account linked to my Google account on the Sonos, but quickly found that if someone else used the Sonos while I was listening to Spotify elsewhere (like at work), then my music would stop. To fix this, I created a house Google account, and linked that Assistant to the Sonos. Then I created a house Spotify account, and linked that account to my house Google Assistant. This works great, no problems. Now I am trying to link Tile to my Google account, so I can ask the Assistant on the Sonos to find my Tile items. This is more difficult. I set up my house Google account on an old, unused Android phone. I am able to link Tile to that account. But since Tile needs Bluetooth, I can't use Tile on Sonos unless that old phone is turned on and in range of the Tile items. I don’t really want to have that old phone sitting around, chargi
I was previously using Alexa, but have switched to Google Assistant now I've got an Android. The sensitivity of waking Google with "Ok Google" is much lower than when using Alexa - when can this be fixed? Also, in my case I have two sonos ones as rear speakers, with amp as front two with sub, when using Alexa both rear ones would listen, now only the rear left?????
Hi Sonos I've just bought a beam and the answers provided by assistant are ridiculously loud (when the beam volume is set just right). Is there any way this can be adjusted? I've got a 100 day trial and the device will be returned if this is not fixable. I don't want to be waking the neighbours every time I get an assistant reply. Looked elsewhere and seems to have been a frequent complaint for quite some time so I presume a fix is imminent??
Just bought a Google home mini and got it conected to my Play 1s and Play 5. I can successfully ask it to play music in the kitchen or whatever, no problem. The only thing I can't get to work is the broadcast. The mini just says "it looks like you haven't got any devices connected". I found [url=https://en.community.sonos.com/google-assistant-and-sonos-229109/google-broadcast-announcement-problem-6827588]this post[/url] but I don't seem to have the Settings>Room Options... so I'm assuming they're talking about the newer Play Ones. So, the question is, it possible to get the home mini to broadcast to the Play 1s and Gen1 play 5? If so, how? Thanks
How do I get my beam to play music that I own and is saved on my phone with a voice command? When I ask it to pay anything, it says I don't have a subscription so Google Play Music. GPM is my default music service since all my music is uploaded into that library. I can cast it to the Beam, but it wont play anything I ask it to.
[h1] "I have a Sonos One and am using the Google interface. Frequently now it tells me that it cannot reach the internet. I have to power it down and back on again to get it to interface properly. Any assistance with this problem would be appreciated."[/h1]
I was surprised to learn that you cannot setup a ‘Routine’ on a Sonos One speaker. This was confirmed by Sonos Customer Care. Specifically I was informed that “Google Assistant doesn't have Routine support within Sonos yet”. Needless to say I was disappointed given the price of the Sonos One vs. a simpler Google Nest Mini. Yes, the sound quality is no comparison between the two which is why I opted for the Sonos. And I just assumed (incorrectly, obviously) that a Sonos One would provide all the setup features you’d find in the Nest Mini. If a $50 speaker can provide daily ‘routines’ then why doesn’t a $200 speaker???I’m hoping the Engineers at Sonos will resolve this issue shortly.
I'm trying to trigger Calm using Google Assistant on my Sonos one, so that I don't have to open the distraction/stress generator machine that is my iPhone. :) However, this task is making me all but calm. When say "on Google talk to calm" to the Sonos it says that "calm is not supported on this device". I've also tried putting Calm content into My Sonos in the Sonos app, which works, but I can't seem to find a way to play those via Google Assistant. Google Assistant on the Sonos One works great I'm general, plays Spotify etc. Calm works when using it from the Sonos app. Calm works when using the iOS Google Assistantant app. Can you provide some trick to solve my ailment?
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.
