Hi, was hoping someone could help me out. I’ve just purchased a Sonos Roam and have a few issues. My existing setup is only very basic with a google home and several google tv devices, all running on the same network. The Sonos Roam is my first Sonos purchase. Firstly I can’t install google voice control on the Roam. I follow the steps on the Sonos app to add a voice assistant, and when it opens the google assistant app to look for devices, it can’t see the Roam. After looking for devices it fails and says to ensure WiFi is on and that your iPhone and assistant devices are on the same network. WiFi is definitely on and everything is on the same network. Also, I can’t get the Google home to see the Roam and stream to it. When I open the Google home app the Roam is listed under devices along with my other google products, and says it is linked, but when I select media on the app the Roam isn’t listed. Any help would be much appreciated.
I have a stereo pair of nest audios in the living room and i’m thinking of upgrading to either a pair of google home max or sonos 5. I was leaning towards sonos since its not a discontinued product and in future i’ll be able to add more speakers for home cinema etc. i was thinking i’d be keep a nest audio to voice control the sonos, glad i found this forum to check! as i understand it i won’t be able to voice control a stereo pair for playing music, changing volume etc and it all has to be done by phone or physically? and simple things like setting an alarm doesn’t work at all even if it wasn’t a stereo pair?
If I set an alarm with Google Assistant on the Sonos One, will the alarm show in the Sonos app? Also, if I set an alarm with the Sonos app, is Google Assistant aware of it? I’m trying to troubleshoot alarm problems and right now, the Google Assistant and the app don’t seem to be aware of the other’s actions. Thanks.
Hi… I‘ve had a Roam for awhile now and it has worked great. I had it set up with Alexa. I keep it sitting on the Sonos charging pad. When I’m using it, it’s usually off the pad. When finished, l leave it off the pad. It goes to sleep in about 30 minutes. And it stays in sleep mode until I’m ready to use it again.A few days ago I set it up to use Google Assistant. Everything seemed fine. But now I’m noticing when I leave it off the charger and it goes to sleep, it will wake itself up (status lights go on). I didn’t do anything. It will go back to sleep after 10 for so minutes, but it seems to come on again by itself at some point. Over the course of a day, I think this is happening over and over, and this behavior is causing the battery to drain. To test, I kept the Roam next to me (not on charger) while I worked. It went to sleep. But about 30-45 minutes later, I heard a Sonos One (with Google Assistant) I also have in the room beep on it’s own (not because it heard the wake phrase… I
On my Sonos One Gen2, when I set an alarm, google says it is setting the alarm for the time I specified. Then I ask her what time it is set for, and the answer is 3 hours later than I said, and snoozed to the correct time that I requested for the alarm. Google answers the time and time zone queries correctly. I can find no setting to correct this. Thanks for the help.
Using Google Assistant on Roam, I can play TuneIn as well as ask for Time, but can't use Apple, Spotify or YouTube
Using a Sonos Roam speaker with Google set up, I cannot play music from music services. If I set my default music provider to either YouTube, Spotify, or Apple Music, and then say 'okay google, play the Police' I get the following:"Okay playing the artist The Police on YouTube Music" "Sorry it looks like you haven't set up your account on that media service provider yet"But all my settings in Google Assistant look correct? Note: that I can ask for the time, I can also play music from TuneIn, something about the other services is busted?
I have various voice activated Sonos speakers, and control a lot of my music via a “Hey Google” command.I also have an Amazon Unlimited subscription, having recently closed my paid Spotify account.However I have not found a way to access Amazon via the “Hey Google” voice command. If, for example, I say “Hey Google, play The Beatles”, she’ll head off and play a series of songs on a free Spotify (with advertisements) service. I don’t seem to be able to set a default to get that service to go to my Amazon account instead.Any clues??
I've had Sonos for a few years now, always a Sonos Beam in my living room and a Sonos One in my bedroom, with Google assistant added. And I've always had the ability to say "Ok Google, play Duo mix on Spotify" and the Sonos that heard me, would play without any issue. But recently, both my living room and bedroom sonos' are insisting I declare which Sonos I want the music to play in. If I don't say "in my bedroom" it won't play and I have to start the voice command over. It's a small detail that is a bit annoying. If I'm 3 feet away from the bedroom sonos', you're obviously the one I want music to play on, the living room sonos didn't hear me or activate to listening mode.Why did this change, and is there a way to change it back?
I have google nest mini and Sonos one. I cant use “ok google” let Sonos play music.But I can play music thought Spotify app , Sonos app , Mac app. Steps to reproduce(speak to google nest mini):1, Ok google,play music on Sonos.2,Ok,play Spotify music on Sonos, sorry, This device does not support this feature. Steps to reproduce(speak to Sonos one):1,Ok google, play music on Sonosdoesn't respond.but if I ask weather or time, it worked. I changed my google assistant default audio device to Sonos, it also doesn't work.
When I give my Beam Google Assistant a command to play music, it plays on my Play:5 instead. The Play:5 sits below the Beam and is inputed from a turntable to play my old LPs. That works fine. The Beam is connected via ARC to my Samsung TV and works fine for TV audio also. Both speakers are in the same room, with the Beam on the top shelf of the media center and the Play:5 below it.My question is: Why does a music voice command on the Beam play music on the Play:5 instead? Also, why I cannot control the volume of the Play:5 from the Beam voice command. I have to touch the Play:5 buttons to increase or decrease the volume.Thanks,
I am need of some support. To clarify I have had number of Sonos speakers and google home devices for over 5 years I think so am familiar with both technologies and their capabilities however I have recently purchased an Arc which is the first sonos speaker I have owned with built in assistant capabilities.I have set it up and the “hey google” wake word works 99% of the time regardless of how loud the speaker is this is fine. However I have found the actual voice recognition is very hit and miss. I have been doing some experimenting and to remove variables I only use a single voice command during testing “activate the movie scene”. I have found that this probably works less than 50% of the time. When it doesn’t work it is not miss understood, the speaker simply ignores the command completely. Sometimes it only detects part of the command but sometimes it is the start of the command or the end of the command but never the bit in between or misinterprets the words. Furthermore I h
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.
I’ve seen meny have similar problems, but nothing really seems to fit my use case so lets have a go:Ever since I started to use GA on my Arc I intermittently get the famous “I can't reach the internet right now ...” message. First I thought it was that I was running the speaker on wifi and there was interference from the neighbours, so I switched to wired directly to a port on the router.Problems persisted.Next I thought that my pi-hold blocker was doing something, I checked the logs, found a few blocked requests and whitelisted them.No more red in the pi-hole log, problems persisted.Next I made notes on circumstances, like if I had been using the TV, or streamed from a computer or Spotify, before it stopped working or if it worked during, which app as in from which device had accessed it last and so forth.Sometimes it worked, sometimes not in all cases.Next to check was if the message coincided with specific times of day or day of week. Same again, sometimes it worked, sometimes it di
Hey y’all. I have a Sonos Play:5 (Gen 2) set up in my living room and I recently purchased a Google Nest Mini (Gen 2) to control it. I’ve set everything up to the point where I can tell the Nest to do things like pause and start music on the Sonos, but when I try to command the Nest to play a specific artist / genre / playlist etc. (e.g. “Hey Google, play jazz on Sonos in the living room”), it replies with the following error message: “Sorry, it looks like Apple Music isn’t currently supported on the living room”. I have set up Apple Music as the default music service on the Nest, and have logged into the same Apple Music account on both devices. I’m a bit puzzled by the error message, since I’m pretty sure I was able to control Apple Music on the Sonos via the Nest at an earlier stage of setting the two devices up. But maybe I’m just misremembering. I’ve read suggestions elsewhere online that controlling Apple Music on a Sonos Play:5 via the Nest just isn’t supported. In any case, doe
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
These speakers are good enough.In a world where interoperability is the norm, Sonos just doesn’t cut it. I can’t get my TV audio to stream wirelessly.I can’t get my other non-Sonos speakers to play at the same time as the Sonos. If you have other Google home devices, don’t pay extra for the Sonos One’s with the assistant integration--they don’t integrate. You can only reinstall the music services and they will not work the same. I don’t know what the point of that is. Actually, the point is to likely to try and force Sonos users to buy only Sonos speakers. But the world isn’t like this in 2022. I hope the Product Owner was replaced and there are plans to actually make these work in a connected home with other devices. The speaker quality is 6/10 for the price. I might replace them with the Klipshe.
Really annoying that Apple Music doesn’t show up as one of the options to choose when being asked to choose music service in google Assistent. Only YouTube Music and Spotify are to be chosen. I don’t use neither of those. When is this going to be adjusted? I’m very disappointed that Sonos have these shortcomings.
I don’t really understand why I can’t use Google Assistant with Sonos when I can use it with Android. One of the reasons buying a Sonos product was it’s Google Assistant support. I found the list of supported countries: https://support.sonos.com/s/article/3491?language=en_US When will Hungary be added to the “coming soon” part and when can I expect it to be supported?
Hi,I've been trying to set up Google assistant on my two Beams.Neither of them allow me to turn the Microphone on.I have successfully added Google assistant to my Sonos One.Although I can turn the Microphone on for my Move, I cannot add the Google assistant to it either.Any tips would be greatly appreciated before I submit a support ticket.All of my speakers software have been updated.Thanks.
I’ve seen a few questions on this subject, but they all appear to be at least a year old.I just specifically purchased a One SL and paired it to a Google Nest Hub Max so I could use voice commands for Apple Music, but even that doesn’t work.Is there a timeline for fixing this?
