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?
I had purchased my Sonos set up from 2018 onwards when it was advertised as speakers that would come with Google Assistant. After a long wait, Sonos became GA-capable. Does anyone know when Sonos will become GA-capable in Asia. Looking at the list of countries for Alexa, I am dismayed that there does not seem to be any further development for Alexa in Asia. Would the same happen to GA in Asia too?
Hiya. Has anyone experienced issues with Google Home dropping Sonos devices? When I open google home it does not list all my Sonos speakers. what is odd is if I unlink Sonos and reconnect to Google home it lists a different subset of my Sonos speakers - or has connected to some it wasn't previously connected to and dropped previously connected ones! So it can see them it just is not consistent.Ihave a similar issue with Assistant in that it won't connect to all available (those that can work with assistant) - if I tap on voice settings in the Sonos app it shows the other devices as untucked but when I select them and it launches Google Assistant it says it can't find any devices.
Hej!Har en Google Home mini och diverse Sonos. Jag försöker lägga till Google assistant i Sonos appen men går ej. Jag gör följande : Sonos appen Inställningar → Tjänster → Röst / Lägg till tjänst Google Assistant → lägg till Google assistant “Ett ögonblick Det kan ta några minuter."“Google Assistant är redo att användas med Sonos" Men tjänsten dyker aldrig upp i sonos appen under Tjänster / Röst. Jag kan lägga till Sonos inne från Google assistant /Google Home. Så jag får upp rummen etc. Kan styra Spotify från Google home mini och streama till Sonos.Men kan inte styra Sonos native från Google home mini och tjänsten dyker alltså inte upp under tjänster i Sonos appen. Någon som vet vad som är fel? Tack på förhand!//Fredrik
I have a play:1 and have added the Google assistant voice service successfully to the Sonos app. I linked everything and for a success message. I can see my speaker in the Google home app. When i go to Services->Music in the Google home app, Sonos is not available as a choice. Only Google play music and YouTube music, and no default provider are.options. below that are Deezer and Spotify neither of which I have. The last option says, Other Music Services but it is not clickable. When I try to tell google to "play Phish from Sonos on the patio speaker" it always attempts to play from Google play music but then gives me this error "Sorry, it looks like you need to log in again on Google play music on the Sonos app". So I do that, it says it's successful then o try again and same problem. How do I get google assistant to recognize Sonos as a music provider and properly link my accounts?
I recently switched my Sonos One from Alexa to Google Assistant, and it seems to mostly work for everything but the one thing I need a Sonos speaker for: playing music. Whenever I ask the assistant to play an album, all I get in reply is "Sorry, it looks like the requested content isn't currently available on Google Play Music". I'm able to play radio stations on GPM just fine; it seems to only be an issue playing albums or songs. I'm able to play my albums via GPM from the So os app as well, just not using voice control. I also can't play albums to my Sonos speaker from the Google Assistant on my phone; same error message. I have a Google Play Music premium account, and I've checked that Sonos and Google Assistant are using the same Google account. I'm not sure what else to try, so any help would be appreciated.
To whom it may concern,For the entire day of today, I have tried setting up the google assistant in my Sonos speakers. I've had the Sonos One, and the One SL for a while, with the assistant working perfectly until today. As soon as I added the Roam to the app, the problems began. I cannot add the voice assistant to it, moreover, the voice assistant doesn't work whatsoever for any of the products.I have tried the countless solution in Sonos forums and on Reddit, with no success.Once I get to the Google Home app, and it asks me to sign in to my sons account, it redirects to a page that asks for me to update my app (it is updated), and that there are no speakers on my account (yes, there are)I have reset all the accounts, re-installed everything, factory reset all the speakers, deleted and adjusted everything I could. Created new accounts to try and add the Google assistant, but nothing has worked. I have submitted diagnostics #999897859
[b]Moderator Note:[/b] Google Assistant is now available on Sonos. See [url=https://support.sonos.com/s/article/3486]here[/url] for more information. It is just embarrassing that a company of the size of Sonos is incapable of delivering a damn voice assistant integration. Something dozens of other manufacturers, way smaller than Sonos, already managed OVER A YEAR AGO. Sonos charges more for their product, yet is not capable to actually giving us a reliable timeline. They are not giving us updates since November (and that demo in January) and literally treat their customers the worst. By the time they roll out Google Assistant I hope most people have moved on from this incapable brand. At least their share price reflects their commitment.
When I try and link Google Assistant to my Sonos One(s) I get as far as the page that says ‘Go to your Google Assistant App’, however when I click it it redirects me to the App Store despite the Google Assistant App being installed on my phone. I have have tried uninstalling both apps, hard resetting my phone and resetting the Sonos system countless times, but every time I still get misdirected. Has anyone else seen encountered the same problem?
Hello! I'm trying to set up my apartment for a small, simple home theatre, but I'm running into problems with the audio. My current setup consists of a projector sitting on a shelf on the back wall, a Chromecast plugged into the projector via the HDMI port, a Google Home Mini also on the back shelf with the projector, a screen mounted to the opposite wall of the projector, and a Sonos Playbar mounted to the wall underneath the screen. I don't have a TV that's easily accessible to plug the Playbar into (since they're on opposite walls), so having the Playbar pick up the audio of the projector is potentially not possible (or will require a rather long cable). My hope was to connect my Google Assistant to my Sonos account, with the Playbar set up without a TV, and have audio play through the Playbar when casting to the Chromecast in the projector. Currently, the audio for the Chromecast plays through the Google Home Mini's speaker (by default). The Playbar is visible as a device in my
Hi, i have replaced my SONOS play:1 with a SONOS One to get acces to Google Assistant commands. After a succesful setup and adding my Google Assistant in the SONOS app and adding my Google Play Music premium account I though I was set. But apparantly there are major issues: The ‘OK Google’ Command works. After that, 95% of the commands stop working. The microphone just blinks ad thats it. I found a topic about that where a SONOS employee answered that it would be fixed and in a timely matter. This a thread of 4 months (!!!) ago. Is there ANY update on this (No Alexa or another speaker is not a option for me). How is this still an issue? Link to thread: https://en.community.sonos.com/google-assistant-and-sonos-229109/sonos-one-problem-with-google-assistant-6837646 When I use a music command that got accepted (very rarely) this happens: ‘Play number X by artist X’ Answer ‘Ok playing song X by artist X on Google Play Music’ I’m sorry, I cannot help you with this’ Why is this?
I have a surround system with an Amp, two cabled front speakers and two Sonos One surround speakers. As default Sonos chooses the left Sonos One (surround) as the speaker used for interaction with Google Assistant. It would be more convenient for me to use the RIGHT Sonos One surround speaker for this. How can I change this setting?
From the Sonos apps installed on my iPad and Macbook Pro I can manually create playlists from the music library stored on my Macbook --- basically my iTunes library assembled over several years.I can select one of these playlists or a single track and play it on either of my two sonos one devices simply by clicking on it.But I’m not able to do this using google assistant voice control as it doesn’t recognise my Music Library or sonos playlists as music sources. It only seems to accept streaming paid-subscription Music Services e.g. Spotify premium account.Why is this ?Is it simply a commercial decision by Google who hope that I will subscribe to Google Play Music, which would give them a monthly revenue stream ?I could of course subscribe to a different streaming service like Spotify, Apple Music or Amazon Music, in which case neither Google nor Sonos would receive any subscription benefit from me.I’m quite happy for google assistant voice control to tell me the weather forecast
“OK Google” wake command has sensitivity settings in the Home app now. I have other assistant products that have had this feature a for a little while now. It is now available for for Sonos products too. I can confirm for the Sonos Beam and One as I have tweaked them this morning. This should be good news for some of us.
Hi, Just got a Google Home for Xmas and am trying to add my sonos speaker to it. I’ve enabled the Google Assistant in the Sonos App however now when I go into either Google Home or Google Assistant app, each speaker is listed twice and I can’t seem to delete just one of them. Any one else experienced this before
Hi, having just set up the Arc and a Gen 3 Sub, I thought I would add Google Assistant. Unfortunately, when I get to the point, where it asks you to login to my Sonos account, it just say that my email address or password is incorrect! I checked and double checked my Sonos account details, and I am inputting the correct details. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled Google Assistant, but it still says my account details are incorrect. Now what? TIA
Hi there, I’m using my One to control Google Assistant and just got smart bulbs in the room, all *working* but the experience is far from great. The One will helpfully tell me that it’s turned on or off the lights... about 1 second after the lights have turned on/off. Google have resolved this issue when using Assistant through my phone, but the whole idea of the One was not needing my phone on me the whole time. (https://support.google.com/assistant/thread/890788?hl=en) Is there a setting or something I’ve missed to control this? The other part is please let us set the voice assistant response volume! I’m hoping we maybe see these changes in the S2 update already!?
So I'm a huge sonos fan, and recently upgraded to the Beam, which is my first sonos device with Google Assistant support.One thing that google has improved is reducing how chatty the google nest mini is when you turn off lights. You can see them turn off, so having it tell you that it turn them off is a bit over the top.I noticed the Beam does the old behavior of repeating back which lights are being turned off.I'd love to see the Beam updated to not do this.More Info:https://support.google.com/googlenest/thread/10509024
