Hi, I just set up my Google assistant to control my Play:3 with google assistant on my phone. I can control it like pause it set up the volume or skip songs but whenever I try to play music I get an "I can't do that yet" responde from assistant. My default service on assistant is Google play music which is also added to Sonos with the same account. Any of you having this problem? Any ideas on how to solve it?
GA integration NEEDS to allow Sonos/Home device grouping and ability to set Sonos as default speaker
I’ve been looking forward to this rolling out for so long, bought a Home Hub in anticipation as my dream was to ask the Hub to play a song on Spotify, and it’d play on the Sonos One while showing the song info and controls on the Hub. Would be an amazing media setup. Obviously, I was pretty damn disappointed to find that this wasn’t possible. Not only does the Home Hub not show the song info/the Spotify app (it just shows volume and start/pause/skip controls), you even have to specify that you want it to play on Sonos. This is cumbersome and we shouldn’t have to do this every time. I have the Home Hub and the One in the same room, so if I leave both enabled it defaults to the Home Hub. This could all be fixed by allowing the Sonos to be set as a default speaker for Home devices as this would allow the functionality to accomplish this. The only way I continue to invest in more Sonos and Home devices is if we have the ability to group all of these devices together to work in perf
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
Anyone else having an issue with Google Assistant and Spotify? Google assistant works fine when I use it but, no one else in my house can get it functioning. The error they receive is that the Spotify account must match on both Sonos and Google assistant. I have Spotify Family so everyone can manage their own playlists. Sonos does not seem to recognize multiple Spotify accounts, therefore only my account is logged on the Sonos. Anyone figured out a work around?
Just set up Google assistant on my Sonos Beam - assistant recognizes my commands like add Milk to shopping list, but when I ask it to play a artist on Spotify it tries and then says - "device isn't available right now" . I can play Spotify music through Sonos app on all speakers including the Beam. I have removed the Google assistant from the Beam and added it back just to see if that fixed it. I did change the name of the device during the process of setting it up. Has anyone run into this error and figured out how to fix it.
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?
I'm not surprised that I can't play the music in my local (NAS) library with the new GA/Sonos integration. However, is it also not possible to play music that I've uploaded to my Google Music account? I can do this using the Sonos app. If I try "Hey Google, play (artist) in the office" I get "OK (artist) from Google Play Music playing in the office. Sorry looks like the subscription tier for Google Music is not supported." I've also added "from my library" to the command and that doesn't help.
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?
Everytime i ask it to play music, tunein or do anything with the speakers, it just says: It looks like the "den" isn't available right now. Den is my stereo pare speakers. Please help? I've tried removing the service and reinstalling google assistant, restarting router, unplugging and plugging my speakers.
I was really excited to update my Sonos system with Google Assistant. I use both Alexa and Google Assistant for different tasks because they are good a different things. When I updated yesterday, I was really disappointed that I can't run both at the same time. Am I doing something wrong? Or do I indeed have to pick one or the other?
So I just updated my speakers with Google Assistant today, and I have some initial feedbacks on it. Firstly, it’s very infuriating not able to use Google Assistant on both of my Sonos Ones (Gen 1). Sometimes I have to get in my bathroom, and I’d like to shout my commands from it. But only one speaker is able to turn its mics on, and it’s even on the further one to the bathroom. Also, the mic button on the disabled speaker doesn’t work. Secondly, the response time is noticeably longer compared to when Alexa is enabled (only when I request music). Thirdly, Google Assistant doesn’t recognize my commands for music sometimes. For example when I say play Stan by Eminem and Elton John it just says “Playing Stan on Stan”. But when I says playing Stan by Eminem it plays normally. I’d like how to get around that problem. Thanks!
I just updated my Sonos system and Google Assistant to control my Sonos speakers. I am getting an error when I ask Google to play Spotify in any room. It states Spotify is unavailable. When I ask google to play Spotify on the Mini home, It works perfectly. I have unlinked and relinked both accounts and I am still getting the same error. I tried the same command with Pandora and it works fine. I can ask Google to play Pandora in any room or on Mini Home and it works flawlessly. Any assistance here would be greatly appreciated!
I was excited to see integration with Google assistant, however when I try to add sonos, the following happens: 1) I go to voice services and add Google Assistant 2) this takes me to the Google screen where it authenticates me using the same email address that's on my sonos account 3) this then redirects me to the sonos authentication 4) after authenticating on sonos, it says I need to register my speakers to my account, so I click Go to Sonos App, and the process starts all over again. This doesn't make sense. My speakers are registered to my account. When I go to the sonos website, and sign in with the same email address, I can see all of my speakers. Elsewhere in this process it says if I go to More > Settings > Account Settings and I don't see "Account" I need to update my sonos system. I do not see "Account" - I see my email address as the linked account and then I see Transfer account. Where is "Account"? I've also confirmed my app and speakers are all up to date.
I have Play5 and Play3 speakers throughout our home. My Sonos account is logged in through the same email address I use for my Google Assistant. My Sonos account correctly lists all of my speakers I own as part of my system. So why, when setting up the Google Assistant skill, am I unable to get the setup wizard to recognize that fact and continue through the setup?
