Hi there,I have already programmed my Samsung remote to the playbar but i was wondering if the IR on the playbar can somehow be controlled using Google assistant just to turn the tv off and on? The only thing i can find on this is using the beam which uses its hdmi too control the tv. Many thanks for the advice as to whether this can be done or not. Cheers Rob
I currently use Google Assistant in 2 different places, lets call them home1 and home2. Both homes are set up under different locations in the google home app (home1 and home2) , and all cast devices are appropriately assigned. In home1, I have a chromecast connected to a TV, and have been using Google assistant to turn off the TV ("turn off TV' usually works). Recently, I have set up a sonos beam with google assistant in home2. Now, when I am in home1, and ask Google assistant to 'turn off TV', it says 'turning off Sonos TV control'. This is referring to a Sonos TV control device that has been assigned to home2 (I assume is a feature of the Sonos Beam). I have no sonos devices in home1. I have tried renaming my Home1 TV to something else (television for example), with no change - the command to turn it off keeps activating this Sonos TV control located in home2. Anyone have any idea how to stop Google assistant from calling on a device not located within my current loca
Have a 6 Ones, 2 first gen and 4 second gen plus 2 Beam's. Over the last few weeks more and more issues with GA. Daily will ask for new track or radio station hear faintly new track etc GA cuts in hum there's been a problem try again in few seconds light then changes from grey to white and I hear what I wanted. This issue is on the incease it's irritating. Have rebooted all speakers no change.
When I ask my Sonos: "Hey, Google! Play Heart 80s". It replies with: "Playing Heart 80s on TuneIn". However, it then says: "Sorry I can't find what you asked for". This is really disappointing, because Alexa plays radio stations without any issues. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
If you had the same issue as I did with trying to get Google assistant to work with Sonos One paired with Sonos Playbar as Surrounds, it’s a Simple fix…. 1. Get a Sonos Boost or 2. Get an Ethernet cable (use to be supplied with Sonos but doesn’t anymore) and Connect it to your Wireless Router. Unplug the Playbar for 10 seconds remove the Sonos One surrounds and add them back. Make sure you use the Sonos One as the left surround, if your using a Sonos One SL as the right surround... Hope this helps
I recently bought Sonos Move. I set it up in my summerhouse with no problem with Wifi and Google Assistant. Now I just Got Home to my other House and Google Assistant doesnt seem to be able to find Move again, so I can set up the Assistant on this other Wifi. Anyone know what I’m doing wrong? I can set up Move to this other Wifi, and event though Move is on the Wifi, Google Assistant doesnt work.
I have Beam with Google Assistant as a Voice Service - it generally works fine I can play the Google Play Music Playlists I have generated myself both through the App and by Voice Command. I can only play Auto generated Google Play Music Playlists (.e.g Thumbs up or Recently Played) via the App - I cannot get the system to identify these Playlists via Voice Command. I can get other Google Smart Speakers to play these Auto generated Playlists by Voice - this seems to be something related to Sonos. Any ideas ?
Been trying to get this working for over a day with no success at the moment, things i’ve done: Removed all Music Services apart from Spotify (which is also set up on my GA) Here’s what happens - I try to add the GA from the add voice services section of the app, this then opens a web page that then redirects me to the app store for GA - I already have that installed and it just says open. When i manually open the app nothing happens - i can manually link Sonos in the GA app, which works, but the Sonos app then tells me i have an error. This is for 3 Sonos One (Gen 1) devices Any ideas?
I have recently set up my new sonos one gen 2 speaker with spotify free with google assistant but unfortunately more often than not it plays different artists from what we ask it too. i.e Hey Google, play The Verve and it states it will play The Verve but it plays Stereophonics instead. It’s the same if ask it to play a certain song it will play something different. Has anyone experienced this issue? Thanks
Hei, jeg har linket sonos mot google. Fungerte ok. har i ettertid flyttet eierskap av sonos til ny epost. Da sluttet google å funke. Jeg får opp «det kan ha skjedd ett problem» i google appen. hvis jeg prøver i google å legge til sonos står det «sonos er tilknyttet».. Flytter jeg eierskap tilbake virker det fint igjen. jeg kommer ikke lengre. Hva skal jeg gjøre?
I’ve got my Sonos speakers linked with my Google account and until recently I could tell Google Assistant, either on my phone or on my Nest Hub, to “listen to ‘artist/song’ in the ‘roomname’” and it would play the choice on the Sonos speaker in that room. Something seems to have changed recently though. Now if I say “listen to ‘artist/song’ in the “roomname” it ignores the room and just plays on the device that received the request. The Sonos speakers show up in Google Home and in the correct rooms, when someone rings my Nest doorbell the Sonos speakers announce that there’s someone at the door, and if I ask the Assistant to “play ‘artist/song’ on ‘speakername’” it will work. I’ve tried moving the speakers between rooms in the app, I’ve unlinked and relinked my Sonos account and I’ve made sure that my One speakers are set up to use Assistant too, just in case, but it still won’t work as it used to. Any ideas?
My Sonos beam use to confirm changes to lights in the same room with a chime, after google made this change to google assistant. But in the last couple of months it’s gone back to telling me “turning off 4 lights” rather than a discreet chime. I have tried turning my beam off and rebooting but it still won’t go back to using the chime response. Has this feature been broken on Sonos speakers by a Google or Sonos update? I still get the chime response on google home mini’s I have in the house. Thanks
Ive successfully used the Google Assistant on my new speaker. However I cant get the feature to work if it moves away from my router. All other services work i.e music playback through the app. I want it in the neighbouring room to the router, all of 7 metres away. All other wifi dependent devices work. Just seems a bit strange to me. Any ideas?
I would like to create a “group” for all my Sonos speakers within Google Assistant so I can adjust volume, play music etc. on ALL the Sonos speakers at once. I have them assigned to separate rooms, but still would like to address them as one. I have tried creating a “speaker group” in Google Assistant, but the only device that shows up is my Google Home speaker and my Sonos Beam.
hello. I have an odd problem with my sonos beam! Google assistant is working fine on my beam just like on my Google home mini. However, when I issue this command "okay Google play the latest news about Microsoft [or any specific topic]". It only works on my Google home mini! My beam replies back by saying "I can't find news about Microsoft yet[etc.]" Why is that and is it normal? Thanks
I have been struggling with getting my sonos one to work with google assistant. I have tried everything suggested. Sometimes it allows me to play music (youtube music paid subscription) and radio and other times it just ignores me. Very frustrating. Currently it won’t let me add anything to my shopping list at all (just ignores me!) although it will let my son add items! Compared to my google mini it is a world away from the voice functionality that has. Does anyone find that sonos/google works and is it worth persevering or should I just accept it isn’t going to work as a google smart speaker? It is under a year old so I should be able to return it as faulty since the google functionality doesn’t work. I could then either get a google max speaker or use my google mini to pair with another wireless speaker. Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts or advice!? James
Hi Just purchased the play one to go with my system. I had alot of trouble just getting through the google assistant app with my ph, so used my tablet. So eventually I got to ask the speaker to play some music. Low and behold the only replies came from my tablet and mobile that were in the same area. The only response from the speaker was that there has been an issue somewhere and to try in a few seconds. Now, even the speaker doesnt activate when I say, hey google let alone find any music or information. Its now just a speaker within my system.
I’m sure this is a simple question but I was unable to find a clear answer. I have a Google home & plan on getting a Sonos Gen 2. I don’t don’t to replace my G Home because it is my understanding that Sonos isn’t a fully capable of Google Assistant. Will I be able to mute the assistant on the Sonos and use Google Home to command it to play music on the Sonos? Also is that correct that Sonos is not a fully functional assistant?
I have the privacy settings set pretty tight on Google … no web activity, no location activity,etc. I’m having issues with GA interacting w/ Sonos. I can see the devices in Google Home settings, but when I try to play music on one of them it resonds, “To get help with that, I’ll need more information...”. I assume that’s Google oblique way of telling me I need pull my privacy pants down and go full-blown GA.
