I have just set up a new Sonos account for a new Sonos One (gen 2) but when trying to add it to Google Home (following the steps outlined here https://support.sonos.com/s/article/3486 as well as attempting to add directly from the Google Home app), I get an error message saying that this is not available in my country. As per this article https://support.sonos.com/s/article/3491 this should not be the case. I have my address set in both the Google Home app and in the Sonos account to the UK. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Sonos app (as this is the only piece of advice that seems to be available online.
Hi community, (and sonos dev team I hope )I find two post regarding this issue but I can’t get any solution about it…Google Assistant come with a great feature named “Voice Match” that permit multiple users from a same house to retrieve custom data from their own data account (Google Home can share device to different Google account invited in a “house” and retrieve custom information from calendar and other)When I enable the Google Assistant on my Sonos One, I’m able to add the “Voice Match” feature on the Google Home app from the Google account that owned the Sonos One device.When another Google member from my house try to enable the “Voice Match” feature, they are able to list the Sonos One but the get an auth error about an auth check failure.The same test work on Google Nest device.Any idea on that ?there is some picture about that issue :Working (account that own the Sonos device)Not Working (another member from the house) Moderator Edit: Removed images with personally identif
Hello!Apparently Sonos now support Google home routines in their google assistant implemetation which is great :)However, when I start the routine “Good night” and the choosen sounds has been playing for the standard 1 hour duration, the assistant suppendly speak up and says somthing like “I dont understand this command!”.This is very annoying since this is the sleeping mode so to say and you dont want to wake up by this sound. I had a pure google speaker prior to the sonos one and that one did not have this issue.It is like the assistant doesn’t understand the command but the routine is play anyway and the error message is postponed until the routines has played.Note that this is the swedish version of the assistant.

I switched all of my Sonos devices at my upstate home this weekend from Alexa to Google Assistant (2x Beam and 2x Sonos One) and everything worked great and controlled all of those as well as my 3x Connect:Amp devices. The Beam CEC control to turn on and off TVs with Google works great! I attempted to update the Beam and Sonos One at my apartment when I returned to the city and when I run through the process, the Google Assistant app fails to find any devices. My apartment setup has the same Sonos account with the latest firmware updates, same Google Account (which is configured for two homes) and is on the the same UniFi networking equipment (different SSIDs). Are there any known limitations with a single Sonos account at multiples homes? There shouldn't be any limitations on the Google side as I have Ecobee thermostats at Google Home locations. The only other difference is that that I don't have any "real" Google products like a Home Mini at my apartment, so I'm wondering
I have successfully connect a Sonos One (actually more than one speaker) to Google Assistant. Give the issues I was having with the Move, I did factory reset on one of the Sonos Ones and subsequently “reconnected” it to Google App so know that it can be done in this environment. That said I have not been able to complete task on Sonos Move. Move is visible and works on Sonos App and is Blue tooth connected to my IPhone. When I go through the Google voice activation process the following occurs…. Select Room - (Select Sonos Move) Sonos Application then takes me to Google App where a message appears at bottom of IPhone “Device Setup in Process try again later”. I push “Try Again” button on IPhone. Google App then looks for my device - “Sonos Move” appears and I push “NEXT” blue button. “Allow this device to use your Google Assistant - Sonos Move”….Push “ALLOW” blue button. Google App then goes into a search mode “Connecting to device”….where a message appears “there may b
Hello sonosYou keep "solving" all these threads about multiple streams started from Google/Alexa by pointing the finger to google/amazon. Sonos is a big company and you use voice control as a major selling point as you do with multiple room playback. This is very disappointing! Are you working on a solution?(I use spotify premium)
Just picked up a Beam (Gen 1). For the life of me, I can't set it up as a Google smart speaker. I am able to link my Sonos and Google accounts, but when I try to use the Google Assistant app to set up the Beam for use as a smart speaker, the Assistant app (iOS) literally just crashes. The Assistant app recognizes the Beam, but then instead of finishing up the setup process, it just closes. Tried on my iPad - same result. I posted on /r/sonos, and at least one other person is having this issue.
With regular google assistant devices, if I say “turn on the lights” it will turn on lights in the same room.With the Beam, the same command will turn on lights in the whole house. Likewise I can’t control the thermostat of the room that contains the Beam. It changes all of them.What am I missing? The Beam is definitely in the right room in Google Home.
I just set up Google Assistant, and I'm largely happy with it, except that sleep timers don't work. When I have spotify playing, if I say "Sleep Timer for 10 minutes", Google Assistant responds "Sleep timers can only be set when media is playing". Is there any way to get this to work?
Hi! I've recently got an Ikea Symfonisk Bookshelf because of the great design and quality hoping to use it along with my google chromecast and assistant in order to form a streaming group with each one of them in different rooms. However, I can't find any way to sync the products since Sonos doesn't have the voice services available in my country. The thing is that I'm only really interested in using all three devices for streaming music together so I'm looking for a way to be able to add the Sonos Symfonisk in my Google Home app only as an additional speaker, I don't need the voice service at all. Does anyone know any solution? I'm unfortunately considering returning the Symfonisk unless I can find a way to solve this problem.
I have a few recurring issues with google voice and my Sonos ones. Either when I ask to play a radio station the response is OK playing xxx radio station. Sorry I can’t find what you asked for. Or sometimes when I ask to play artist name I get Sorry I can’t do that here but you can ask me to play it on one of your other devices. And sometimes this commands work… wondering if Alexa might be more helpful? We use Google WiFi and have a WiFi point in the neighbouring room to one of the Sonos ones and I wondered if this might cause something funky to happen as I don’t think this was a problem until I upgraded the WiFi points and now have one which is voice enabled. Can anyone help? Please!
I'm using Sonos roam and Google assistant. Previously when using Google home mini, whenever I asked him to play one specific song, he automatically started a radio/queue and kept playing similar songs.When I ask Google assistant on Sonos roam to play a song he makes no queue. Just plays this one song and stops. Any suggestions?
Got the speakers based on voice command and True Tone….only to find out that this functionality is not available in NZ….I was also looking to add these speakers to a group using Google home, also not available in NZ…I now have a nice pair of Dumb speakers…Is there a workaround or hack?
I must admit to wanting to ditch the Sonos roam because of a few silly things that are annoying me - a lot!I use Google assistant, have been for years - so I was very happy to know I could use it with the Sonos roam - however...it isn’t great is it?Example - I say: Hey google, stop playing in one hour. It tells me it can’t set a sleep timer when there is no media playing! There is media playing.I ask to play a specific song - it doesn’t - it takes me to a playlist - always.When I plug the google home hub in and use that - to compare...it works perfectly and does everything I ask.Why is this so?
Hi all, Currently i setting up my home to have a Sonos One Gen 2 in every room. Wanted to configure google assistant such that: In Room 1, If give command to turn off fan, it will only turn off fan in room 1, leaving the rest on. In Room 2, if give command to turn off xmas tree light, it will not execute as xmas tree is in living room. In room 3, if give command Goodnight, only turn off the lights and smart devices in room3. Can i make use of google assistant and home app plus sonos app to achieve this? Thanks for you time. Cheers Jim
I’ve seen this question/issue raised several times and I want to add my vote for this enhancement to the Sonos One. It is really a nuisance not being able to control the volume of the Alexa / Google Assistance separately from the volume of the music.
Starting this topic AGAIN because all the threads are months old and often shut down by Sonos staff. I can play Sirius XM on all my Sonos speakers through Sonos app. I can play Sirius XM on Google speakers using Google Assistant. I can play Pandora on my Sonos speakers using Google Assistant. But what I can't do is play Sirius XM on Sonos (One) using Google Assistant on the Sonos One (or anything else). It says "Sirius XM is not supported on ____". And yes I've disconnected accounts and relinked multiple times.
Losing hours and patience here :-) Google assistant cannot be added to my sonos app to work with Roam. Got support and they told to go online and change the country to US. I did, rebooted the whole thing, uninstalled the app and put it back up again. Nothing happen, still get the same “Not available in your country message”. Any tips before I throw it out a window or write a nasty take down piece?
