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.
Google Assistant works fine on Sonos 1 if my phone is out of the room.If my phone is in my pocket and I'm in front of the speaker and say, "hey Google, turn up the volume". It turns up my phone instead of the speaker even though the speaker beeps in response to the hey Google.
Hej! Skulle vilja skapa ett rum med en Play:5 och en Play:1, går det? Jag förstår att det inte går att ha dem som ett stereopar, och jag förstår att det går att länka dem så de spelar tillsammans som två rum. Men i samma rum? Det verkar som det behövs för att man skall kunna använda dem tillsammans med Google Nest. Som det är nu får jag bara ljud i den ena. Tacksam för hjälp! /Alex
Household in an odd state (requires a device with ethernet connection) - otherwise some devices undiscoverable and voice does not work for some voice capable devices
About 6-8(?) weeks ago my a few of my devices dropped out of my household. I don’t know the trigger for that. Most of my voice capable devices suddently kept on “I can’t connect to the internet...” - the only exception was my Sonos Move. There are also some devices that was in the household that are not discoverable (does not appear in the list if devices). In the Voice section of my iOS app, when I go into the device list, it showed the Move and all the other devices that had been configured with voice was not shown (and when I try and add, it says all device already configured with voice). I went to my sonos.com profile and look at my system and a lot if them was showing “offline” even though they are up and has valid IPs. The voice capable devices had their mic enabled but I kept on getting the “can’t connect to internet error” when the wakeword is triggered. Those devices that are showing as offline in my sonos.com:profile:system cannot playback Spotify but can play local li
Hi Guys,do you also face that many issues with Google Assistant connected with Play One ? I’m having 5+1 set with Playbar, one of back speakers is Play One which is synchronized sith Google Assistant. OMG I need sometimes wait 30 seconds for response, not completing the request etc. Anybody found out any solutions ?!Please support have a great day!!!
My Sonos Speakers are connected to my Google mini, and I used to be able to say “Hey google, save this song” when I want to save a song to my Spotify library. I used to be able to do this when I played from the S2 app, and through the mini (Spotify Connect).It was a real nice feature because I discover new music by playing other people’s playlists, and being able to save songs this way was really convenient.However, now no matter how many I reset/unlink my Sonos/google system, I always get the response “Sorry I don’t understand.” It’s been happening for around 2 months now. Does anyone have this problem and can help me get this feature back? Thanks!
I can start playing music or a podcast with Google assistant but one it starts playing no more reaction (funnily yesterday everything worked just fine). I tried all steps suggested - unlinking on both sides (i.e. sonos and google assistant), but can't resolve the issues. Can you please help? Thanks
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
And suddenly, without changing anything to any settings my Dutch google assistant cannot locate my sonos speakers anymore. But the English google assistant does, really????.So deleted my speakers from google home, delete the assistant from the sonos app, re-installed the whole shabang but no go. Issue remains. Any suggestions would be welcome.
Hi all,I have an Arc, a Sub, and two Play:3's as surrounds. I noticed that when asking Google Assistant on the Arc to play a song (from YouTube Music, in this case), its response cuts off the first few seconds of the song. However, when asking the assistant to play a song on a Google device, such as Google Nest Mini, it finishes its response and the song plays afterward without the beginning being cut off.Just in case anyone else may have experienced this scenario also, I spoke with a senior Sonos engineer last week who said he would submit this as a feature request, so maybe a future update will address this.Ultimately, this is nothing more than a very minor inconvenience, but it would be nice to be able to hear a song in its entirety without interruption when requesting it through Google Assistant.
Just wanted to shout out if anyone has this experience. When a voice capable (I configure them with Google VA) device hasn’t been “spoken” to in a long time (I didn’t pay attention to what constitutes “a long time” but my hunch is around the order of 2-3 days), the first time the response will contain an audible click (very soft but nonetheless audible). I will try and submit a diag next time this happens. What other info can I collect if this happens again?
Having jumped into the infuriating and exhilarating world of smart living/iot etc (yes, I have no life) slightly late, I have set up GA on my iPad (and I have the clumps of hair in my hand to prove it). I think I have it now: my Play:5s (Gen2) will never have voice assistant like my Beam but with an iPad and GA, or with one of Google’s speaker mics, I can control the speakers all the same, with voice. I assume there is no way to control the usual Sonos parameters through the Google Assistant app using gestures, ie with my finger? I can do this with Hue compat lights etc. but the Sonos speakers do not have any control (except the Beam which has on off for the linked TV). Yeah, I know the Sonos app is right next to GA, but it still would be nice to simplify these tasks, given that was the idea, I gather, with smart devices. Yorkey Thanks
I used to manage my chromecast using my voice via Google Assistant, for instance “ok google, put Chromecast on pause” ou “switch Chromcast off”. But now, the answer si “unfortunately living room is not compatible”. In french : “malheureusement salon n’est pas compatible”.Is that a change on sonos products ? I have a Sonos BEAM (not the latest generation).Thanks
I have Sonos devices in two homes. Both homes are included in my Google Home app. However, i am only able to install Google Assistant in one of those homes. Each time I install it in one home it unlinks from the devices on the other home and I need to do all the installing again.
Buongiorno,ho appena acquistato una Sonos Beam in modo da poter integrare l’assistente Google alla mia Sonos.Riesco perfettamente a fare l’installazione. L’assistente funziona con tutto tranne che col musica.Quando chiedo di farmi sentire della musica, ad esempio “OK GOOGLE FAMMI ASCOLTARE MUSICA DI VASCO ROSSI SU SOGGIORNO” mi risponde sempre che non ha capito.Ho già provato a scollegare tutto e ricollegare tutto, mi sono accertato di aver stesso login premium sia su google che su Sonos ma niente.Sapreste risolvermi il problema??Grazie mille
I am not sure if this is a bug, part of the lawsuit or what.I have a Nest Audio.I have Sonos Connect Amp powering two outdoor speakers.Sonos is linked to my Google Home.From the Nest Audio, I can tell it to change songs. That is it.It seems it no longer adjusts the volume. It also will no longer play a different artist. For example, if I am listening to Van Halen, if I say "Ok Google, Play Pantera on Pool Radio", it says it can't do that on this device. If I say "OK Google, Next song", that works.Trying to change volume as I said, does not work anymore either.On my phone, if I say "OK Google, play Van Halen on Pool Radio", it will work.Is there something with the Nest Devices that is now broke or a bug?I removed the sonos, readded it, reauthorized YouTube Music. nothing.I tried a second Nest Audio, same thing. It will not do "Ok Google, Play "artist" on Pool Radio".Seems it is just related to the Nest Audio.
Hi all,I worked with assistant for about 2 yrs. now in the living room on Playbar-Sub-One (Rear) setup. We upgraded now the play:1 to Sonos One and SL in the kitchen one week ago, to get convience with assistant too. The distance between both speakers is about 5 meters, with a wall in between.Since the adding of the One in the kitchen, we encounter strange messages from Google like:no setup for room extremly slow performance in executing commands (about 10-15 secs) “your command is not supported yet”Does anyone has experience with this issue? It’s really annoying. It took me a long time to convince my wife, but now I’m angry on myself - waiting 15sec to get the light on or stop music.PS: Sonos App is working well, like before.kr, Thomas
Hola, tengo dos sonos five gen 2 y cuando quiero vincular el servicio de sonos a google me dice que aun no esta disponible en españa. Vengo probando esta opcion hace mas de un año y nada ha cambiado. Con alexa anduvo sin problemas. Alguien tiene alguna idea? Me dice que no esta disponible en españa
When you ask for something that is streamed right back from assistant api and not from an app like Spotify you don't have control on Sonos va app but only the option to ask Google assistant to stop. Substantially when the playback of something like "hei google tell me the news" you'll notice the status of the player from the app or the exposed API as "nothing in play".Missing the option to stop it via any other external API but pressing the physical buttons or asking for "ok Google stop".For speech impaired and movement impaired people this is frustrating. Could you please add a status like "assistant engaged" and a stop button on API and APP?As the playing status is already there this shouldn't be too hard to implement.Thank you.
