Google just released native support for SiriusXM via the Home app. It is listed as a “radio” service. I can use voice commands to start and stop stations just fine on the actual google home products (Hub, mini’s etc), however when I attempt to target my Sonos system for playback I am told by Google Assistant that the device is not supported. For example, I say to my Home Hub “Sonos Kitchen play Phish Radio on SiriusXM”. Google Assistant recognizes the command as valid with something like “OK playing Phish Radio on SiriusXM on Kitchen” ; immediately followed by “Sorry kitchen is not supported at this time”. Is this a bug or functionality that is not yet built? Please note that I am logged into the same SiriusXM account on both my Sonos system and the Google Home system.
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

I’ve had my Sonos speakers for years and been able to to control them via my Google Home assistants, but since some time ago whenever I say “Play Music on Five (name)” I get the response “It seems you haven’t configured the account with the media distributor yet”.Its not Spotify its referring to but Sonos (If I just say “Play music” it plays music from Spotify on my iPhone”. I’ve removed/added the Sonos account in Google Assistant/Home multiple times, I can see the speakers in my devices list but I can not get inte to play.I’ve tried resinstalling all apps (Google/Sonos) and I’ve tried to different devices. It does not matter which speaker I ask Google to play on, I get the same message regardless.Any suggestions?
Can't add voice assistant to Beam "Google Assistant is not available in your country" when Sonos account is already set to "US" and when already have a Beam with GA active
I think subject say it all. I can't add voice assistant to Sonos Move that I have recently purchased and added to my Sonos System. I keep getting a "Google Assistant is not available in your country"Now the strange thing is that I already had a Sonos Beam for a while now and I managed to add Google Assistant to it by setting my Sonos Account Country to “US”.The Sonos Beam Voice Google Assistant is working just fine, however, when I try to add it to the Beam I keep getting the error "Google Assistant is not available in your country". What else should I do? I’ve tried loggin in and out of the app, I cleared data/cache, I tried setting Sonos account country to UK, then back again to US, but nothing seems to work. Am I missing something? As I understood it one didn’t need to make any changes to the Google Account right?
So, I was able to successfully get my new Sonos One to show up in Google Home. However, it wont show up in the Spotify groups -- Ive tried disconnecting and re-linking everything. any ideas? Only 3 of the 4 show up.I do use TP-Link everywhere. Thank you!
Hi all,It seems like our Sonos Roam is only remembering one voice match profile - The latest one added. We can add an extra voice match profile using Google Assistant on our IPhone or android tablet, and it works temporarily - The Sonos Roam recognises and can identity both voices.However, after a while, it seems to forget one of the users and only retains the latest voice match profile added via Google assistant.This is an issue, as only one user can utilise the personal results features of Google assistant - For example, adding items to a shared grocery list on Anylist or Google Shopping Lists.I think it might be forgetting the second voice profile when the Sonos Roam is powered off using a 5 second press. Anyone else have this issue? ThanksJW

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.
Whenever I ask Google Assistant on Sonos Roam to play a specific music, it will play just the specific song then stops.However, the Google Assistant on any other device I own works differently, it will play the song first, and then related songs.It's quite infuriating because I have added this device to the kitchen and it's supposed to help my wife on listening to music in a hands-off manner, and it's driving both of us nuts. What is the point of having an assistant if you can only achieve the behaviour you want by using the app? (which is quite bad btw)I see that are some people that have similar complaints as old as 5 years ago. Is there no solution to this?
I have a Sonos Arc, which is connected to my LG TV (lg65nano956na) using eARC. I have Google Assistant setup on the ARC, and everything is working fine. I am able to ask Google Assistant to Turn ON or OFF the TV, using voice commands - where Google Assistant then uses the Sonos TV Control Integration to execute the command, as my TV itself does not appear as a smart device in the Google Home app.I am however facing one isse, that if the TV is already “OFF” and Google Assistant is asked to turn it “OFF”, then it turns ON. This in itself is not an issue (as it does not make sense to do).The problem arrives when I use the “Turn OFF everything” command, to turn OFF all my smart devices. In this case, all my smart devices turn OFF, including my TV.. unless the TV is already “OFF”, in which case Sonos TV Control turns it back on.Any idea why this happens and if there is a way to solve it?
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.

Spotify volume becomes quiet and unchangeable after I use the Google Assistant on my Arc. I use Spotify direct cast and it will work normally (I can change the volume in Spotify app, Sonos app, or speaker volume buttons) until I use Google Assistant. Then the volume becomes quiet and I can’t change it using any method until I unplug the Arc. I can still change the volume of TV and Google Assistant voice responses, just not Spotify. Has anyone experienced this? Any ideas how to fix?
Hello,I have 2 daughters which both hold a Sonos One in their room. They both want to use the Google Assistant to play their playlist on Spotify.Unfortunately, Google Assistant is using always the same account on both loudspeakers.Is there a way how I can pick and choose the Default Spotify Account?
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
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.
Hey guysI’ve recently bought a Nest Doorbell (battery) but for some reason, I don’t get the Doorbell to send me a notification on any of my Sonos devices. Things I already tried:Re-linking the Google Assistant with Sonos (service) Re-linking Sonos speaker with Google Assistant (those are two different things in the apps) Factory reset my Sonos Beam (2)The Doorbell does give me a notification on my Google Home Mini in the bedroom but that’s not how I want my setup to be. I also had a chat with Google Support and they told me to ask Sonos because on their end, everything is working as it should, since I get notifications on my Google Home Mini. Pretty frustrating. And I did find another article on here but after trying all those solutions, still no result, which is why I’m writing this.
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.
So having stopped UK listeners accessing radio stations from abroad, the ongoing legal wrangle for TuneIn now means it’s dropping access to internet radio stations. I don’t know the extent of the takedowns but at least 2 stations I listen too regularly are now not available.While I know there are workarounds my biggest concern is that these don’t work via Google Assistant because TuneIn is the default service. So with the loss of non-UK radio stations, plus the new takedowns of internet streams and the on-going absence of BBC radio services, TuneIn is becoming unfit for purpose in the UK on Sonos with Google as the voice assistant.Is there a solution in the pipeline that would allow UK listeners to access other radio stream providers with Google, or to allow people to set a default other than TuneIn? The current situation means that there’s an increasing number of services that are just unavailable via voice control.
Hello, my Sonos system worked well with Google Assistant for years. I use roam and beam for voice control. All my Sonos products are shown in Google Home, while lately when I ask Google Assistant to play music on any named Sonos player, it just replies "the mode is not available". I have tried restart wifi router, reset Sonos system, re-connect Google assistant, nothing works. Any help is very much welcomed.
