I don’t think there has been an answer on this one? I have seen may people have asked. Until last week I was able to ask my google home mini to ‘Hey Google - play <insert radio station> on Play 5. Google would say “ok, playing <radio station name> on Play 5. Now, its says “ok, playing <radio station name> on Play 5…. sorry i can’t find what you asked for. driving me mad. Has anyone found the answer? Have uninstalled the voice service from the Sonos app. Have take off and re-added Tunein. Diagnostic: 534294251
I decided to give Google Assistant a try and during this proces Sonos wants to you confirm you give Google access to what your playing, etc. Okay fine… But how do I revoke this access again? I decided to not use Assistant after trying it and want to revoke Google’s rights to access anything to do with my Sonos. Normal services you can add and remove, but voice services you can only add?
Why can't I play music on Sonos groups with my voice with the Google Assistant? It is ridiculous to pay so much money on Sonos devices, if I can't even play music on a music group with the Google assistant!Sonos is a multi room system, but one of the key features ist not Support by the Google assistant. And don't blame Google on this, you could easily sync the groups as separate devices into the Google home app.
I have a Beam in the lounge with two One SL’s as surrounds. Google Assistant works fine on this setup. I have just bought the Roam and when trying to add the Google Assistant, it simply does not find the device. I have now tried it several times, both through Google Home and also starting within the Sonos app. I removed Google Assistant from my Beam and tried again in Google Home, it found the beam instantly … but not the Roam. Ugh. The Roam is on my network, I can play Spotify through it, I can add it to other speakers to play the same music concurrently (speaker groups?) … but I can’t add Google Assistant … as Google Home just cant find it! Frustrating to say the least.
The Beam google assistant worked fine for a year, but coincidentally around the time I’ve updated the iOS sonos app to v2 I couldn’t use the assistant anymore (I say hey google and get the response in the title of this post). I’ve managed to fix it twice by going through the google assistant and sonos app and reconnecting everything, but next day it comes back to this. Tried to uninstall the sonos app v2 and use the v1 again, but it can’t connect to it, probably because sonos v2 had installed a new firmware to the beam when I first installed it. is there a permanent fix to this?
Does anyone know what is the google home voice command to change the volume on my Samsung tv that is utilizing sonos’ playbar via optics setup? for example if I was listening to Spotify on my tv or watching Hulu/Netflix? When I ask google to increase volume on living room tv not thing happens...I tried different combination like increase volume on Sonos...living room ...etc...but no success.
I have a Playbase & a Google Home. The playbase is called “sonos” in the Google home setup. I can give commands to my phone or to the Google Home to control the volume on the Playbase so I know they are talking to each other. But, what else can I do with Google Assisant? Every guide I find talks about commands for a device like the Beam that has a microphone build it. I would like to be able to:start music playing on the playbase (one of the Sonos services), pause music that is playing on the playbase, change input on the playbase, perhaps other stuff.Has anyone with a playbase done ANYTHING other than control volume?Thanks in advance.
I think the answer will be that voice commands will never work as advertised in which case this is more of a vent post. I had a Sonos surround setup (Play:1, Playbar, Sub) with a Google Mini connected and decided that it would be nice to get rid of the Mini and also add Airplay2 to my setup as Sonos advertise adding a compatible speaker to a group enables this functionality, so I bought a pair of One (Gen 2) speakers. Shortly after replacing my Play:1 speakers (inc. installing new wall mounts, filling the holes of the old ones) I found Airplay2 would not work, after reading forums found that as part of a surround controlled by a Playbar it will not work, even though neither of the two official Sonos blog posts cared to mention this… I was a bit annoyed but the main reason for the swap was to get rid of the Google Mini. I then started to try simple commands using the voice assistant and it is awful, the wake command works flawlessly but then most of the time whichever command I use will
I can issue play/volume commands on Google Assistant to a specific speaker (e.g. "Play x station on Pandora in Kitchen"). However how do I command to play in Kitchen, Dining Room, and Bedroom (as an example)? Is there a command for 'everywhere'? or 'all speakers'? (e.g. "Play x station on Pandora in Everywhere")
Hello, I've actived the Google Assistant on my Sonos one which is working great so far. However the audio que and the answers Google gives are way louders than the current volume (5%) should allow for. It's next to my bed and esp. at night this is quite annoying. Is there any way to control this? Also maybe it's an idea to introduce the feature that Google Home speakers have for some time now, the ability to set a max volume at night hours.
I have both Alexa and google assistant integrated into my house. I’m disappointed that there doesn’t seem to be a way to set up a stereo pair of Ones with one speaker doing Alexa and the other doing google assistant. It fits with what was described as one assistant per speaker. This would also solve the problem of both speakers in one room going off at the “Alexa” or “hey google” wake work. I currently mute one of the two mics because of this repeatedly happening. Would be nice to be able to use the other speaker with the mic muted for google assistant. Am I missing something?
Ive just tried to change radio stations using assistant and now suddenly my speaker isn't available anymore eventhough it was just playing. This is just a recent example but there just seems to be endless issues and incomplete functionality with assistant. Nobody from Sonos is explaining what's happening or why we had to wait so long for something so bad.
Verbally asking Google on my sonos arc to play music results in this response: "Sorry, it looks like you haven't set up Spotify Premium on your Sonos app. To play from Spotify Premium, link the same account on both Sonos and Google Assistant."I've tried looking at other posts but I haven't seen any working solutions. I've done exactly as Google said as well as reinstalling apps and reconnecting Spotify to Google assistant and to Sonos. But I still get the same message every time.
I can't add Sonos to Google's Home or add Google Assistant to my Move. Both approaches fail after giving my Sonos credentials, telling me to register speakers to my account. I have 10 speakers registered to this Sonos account! I used to have it all working, specifically allowing me to use my Sonos Port as the default speaker for a bike mini, in my kitchen. This all broke, so I removed the integrations and started again. But it added my V1 Connect, not my V2 system. So I moved my V1 Connect to a new Sonos account, leaving all my V2 stuff on the original account. Now I get this issue when trying to add Google Assistant integration to my V2 system account.
I feel like I've tried every fix that's recommended, but no luck. When trying to add Google assistant to my Sonos App, the process seems to work perfectly, but after the process is complete, it does not work and it doesn't show up under Voice Services in my Sonos App. Even after it says it was successful. Additionally, the Sonos Playbase does show up in the Google Home app, just not in the Sonos App. Bottom line, Google Assistant doesn't work. Everytime it says it's successful, but never shows up under Voice services (in Sonos App) when I click "Done" from my Android phone. How do I fix this? Ps. I've tried changing room names, removing music services, starting from scratch, etc.
When I ask Google Home ‘Ok, Google Play Music’ it plays music I like (probably my supermix)When I ask Sonos Arc ‘Ok, Google Play Music’ it plays music I have never heard.Also I can't like/dislike currently playing song using voice ‘Ok, Google Like/Dislike/Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down’I’m using YouTube Music service
Hi All,I hope someone can help me. I am trying to get Google Assistant to turn on a particular radio station (RTE Radio 1) on my Sonos.The strange thing is that it finds it and plays it on Google speaker but when I set the Sonos as default speaker it does not work. “Said turn on RTA Radio 1“Sure, RTÉ Radio 1 from TuneIn. Playing on Kitchen…Sorry, I can't find what you asked for….”I am not having this issue with any other radio channels I listen to. But unfortunately this is what my partner listens too and now wants to throw out the Sonos speakers.. Any help or ideas would be great.Thank you all.corcadorcha
Hello there, I recently connected my Arc and Gen 3 Sub to my Prism+ TV through the HDMI (ARC) port without any challenges. The sound stage is stunning! Especially the solid and punchy bass from the Sub. However, the Google Assistant through the Arc is unable to turn on the TV. The TV’s built-in Google Assistant was working well. My TV model is Prism+ QE86 Pro.Any thoughts from anyone?
Google Assistant sleep sounds now work on my Sonos. However, whenever the sleep sounds are about to end (1 hour I believe is the default), Google Assistant shouts out “SORRY, I DO NOT UNDERSTAND” or something to that affect. Obviously not good, I’m asleep by this time only to get woke back up!
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?
Clearly our Sonos Beam has mics and the ability to output sound. It also has Internet access. Are there any actual hardware limitations preventing voice calls being enabled, or is this a business decision by Sonos and/or Google? Will Sonos ever enable Google Assistant voice calling?
Hi Can I use a Google Home Hub (the device with the screen) to control Spotify and Sonos? I would like to place the Google Hub in my Kitchen and link it to my Kitchen Sonos system. I would then like to say “Hey Google, play the Arctic Monkeys” and have the Google Hub display album artwork etc but have the Sonos speakers play the audio (and not the Google Hub). Is this possible? I have searched all over and can’t find an answer and might have to resort to buying one and trying it and then returning it if this is not possible!
I am a old style Hi Fi enthusiast, recently looked at Bose outdoor speakers at Costco, was almost ready to buy these when i decided to look into a online benchmark where the Sonos Move was recommended, thats what i ended up buying online. I was willing to spend $$$ exited about what i read about the Sonos performance i bought a bundle Sonos Move + One SL on eBay from a large authorized dealer just to later find out that this pair is unable to deliver Stereo, but that is a different story. The Sonos Move arrived yesterday afternoon and i quickly wanted to try it out before dinner, had 15minutes for that. Started unpacking powered it up following the instructions, installed the app on my Android, registration, question after question after update after question, the thing was finally satisfied to play music after around 20 Minutes or so, food on the table getting cold. Grrrr, Ok playing with the Sonos Android app while eating i tried to listen to my favorite music stream di.fm, but no wa
