When I ask GA to increase volume indeed increases it. But only by 1%, which is not perceivable at all. So if I wanted to go from 20% to 30% I would need to ask it 10 times! This should be much more rapid, like 0% (muted), 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% or even 0, 5%, 10%, 20% etc. Similarly If I ask GA to “Set volume to 5”, it sets it to 5%, not 50%. Is it a recent bug, something that will get fixed soon or Sonos feature?
Morning, Just received Move and trying to set up Google Assistant to it. I keep getting an endless loop of signing into Sonos and then it going back to the page as per the attached screenshot. Any ideas on what to do or what may be causing this? Many thanks! [img]https://uploads-eu-west-1.insided.com/sonos-en/attachment/f635900b-8cdd-4ee3-a5aa-f19afd47ca5b.png[/img]
Two speakers with google assistant unable to play different music on different speakers with Spotify
I’ve gotten my daughter a sonos one so that she can play her own music (she doesn’t have a mobile of her own yet so speaking to the speaker felt like a good solution). However any music started from google assistant takes over my music in the rest of the house. Has anyone configured their system to allow for two speakers connected to google assistant that can play different songs on different speakers simultaneously? I use Spotify family subscription and separate accounts. Can anyone point me to the solution?
Having trouble adding the google assistant to arc. No issues adding to move or one. the google assistant app just says “no device found” when i try to add to my arc... All devices on same wifi set up.Have already tried factory reset, unlinking and relinking sonos account to google assistant. Super frustrating as I want to use my ones as surrounds with the arc but not lose the google assistant. any tips?
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
I have a Sonos One. Google Voice services recently quit working and I was not able to successfully re-add them. I did a factory reset on the speaker and I’m now attempting to add the Google Assistant. In that process the Sonos app transfers control to the Google Assistant app. The app is “Looking for devices” but the result is always “No devices found.” I’ve tried this several times. Any suggestions? Ironically, adding Amazon Alexa is a snap. It’s just adding Google I’m having problems with.
Hi there,For months I have been trying unsuccessfully to stop our Sonos Five from renaming itself. It keeps reverting to an old naming convention. We have a Google Nest Hub Max as well. I have tried troubleshooting many times with both Sonos and Google Support which has included factory resetting both the Google Hub and Sonos Five speaker and uninstalling/reinstalling the Google Home and Sonos apps but the problem recurs, usually the following day. Any ideas what might be causing this or how to resolve?Thanks!
Have just set up a Google Best WiFi mesh in my house to help with dead spots on the virgin media hub 3.0. Are there any advantages to switching my sonos from the virgin network to the new mesh? Thinking of google assistant and home connectivity etc.
So there it is.. a gigantic fail. In short: Sonos finally shows up on Google Home but as a device rather tan WiFi speakers. One can control Sonos playback from Google Home, but cannot use the speakers freely. This means no Sonos speaker integration to a Home Group, no using a Sonos speaker as a "default speaker" for another speaker.. none of that. I've waited all this long just to be able to extend the music I play in my living room (5.1 stereo hooked up to Chromecast) to the Play:1 I have in the kitchen and today I found out a huge "close, but no cigar". Anyone else feeling the rage of a thousand dragons or just me?
Hello all,I have a problem with my setup.I can’t say : “hey google, switch the music on the sonos FIVE in the room XXX”Google says : “it’s not possible, I don”t understand”If I say “hey google, say to everyone the dinner is ready”google answer : “there is no other speaker configure”But in the same time I can say : “hey google, play music in the room XXX” -→ it worksOther example, I say “hey google lunch music on deezer” → OKbut i cannot say : “hey google stop the music in 5min”, google answer “I can not do that because there is no media currently playing !” :oI really don’t understand what is wrong…Thanks by advanced for your help.PS : sorry for my poor english
Bought a sonos over a year ago as I was impressed with the sound quality. The selling point though was that it would have google asistant as i use alot of nest and google products.1 year later no sign of google assistant in ireland. UK USA Canada australia who are all english speaking have it. Other languages have also been rolled out. If I lived in Nothern Ireland which is part of UK could get Goolge assistant but not in the south of Ireland. Do not understand. Our accent is not that thick that google would not understand . Nest and other google assistant devices work in the south of ireland. So dissapointed should have invested money in a different product. WHY taking so long and no date in sight
I was really excited to update my Sonos system with Google Assistant. I use both Alexa and Google Assistant for different tasks because they are good a different things. When I updated yesterday, I was really disappointed that I can't run both at the same time. Am I doing something wrong? Or do I indeed have to pick one or the other?
I am having trouble getting sonos to work with google assistant for myself and my family members and our separate Spotify accounts. We have a Sonos one and a sonos amp in our living room and a google home in each of our bedrooms. We have 4 google users each with voice match turned on. We have 4 Spotify accounts, one for each google user. Each user has all google home and sonos devices listed as matched ‘devices’ in google assistant. However, we are constantly being told by sonos that our requests for music on the sonos device cannot be completed. What is the proper way to configure multiple family members with multiple Spotify accounts and multiple google accounts on one sonos speaker/system?
I’m using 2x Sonos One and Beam 2. All of them are using Wi-Fi 5GHz via the Unify AP. The apartment is small (<50 sqm) and the network is usually stable. All the devices are updated to their latest firmware versions.However, couple times a day when I say “Ok Google” or “Hey Google” the Sonos speakers immediately answer with “Sorry, there was a glitch”. Then if I repeat myself, assistant is able to process the query.What can I do to help you diagnose the problem? I’ve already submitted the diagnostic information via the app. Is there anything else I can do?
Apologies in advance if this is an existing thread but have limited time to search at the moment. Wondering if there's been a workaround/patch developed that allows users to control volume of GA response(s) on Sonos speakers. At present, stereo paired One in bedroom wakes our kids in the next room at minimum volume when used in the middle of the night. We'd appreciate being able to either silence or turn down GA -- current minimum volume is only reasonable with other white noise (ie: when windows are open and somebody is mowing, etc). Cheers!
Hello, I was wondering if anyone can help me. I have a number of Sonos products including a Beam and Two Sonos Ones Gen 2. The Google Assistant that I have set up with the products is truly awful. I have to ask it several times to play a song or to even stop, it doesn't understand questions like “what time is it”. I have 3 nest minis and these work perfectly and understand every command. The nest minis are much further away from the router than all my Sonos products. My Beam is right beside my router. Can anyone help? thanks
Google Assistant on Sonos is giving me a problem trying to play my favorite local news station News 1130 from TuneIn as I commonly do on Alexa and Google Home, for example on Google Home: "Hey Google, play News 1130 radio" = "All right, playing News 1130 on TuneIn", station plays. But with Google Assistant on Sonos One: "Hey Google, play News 1130 radio" = "All right, playing CKWX on TuneIn" = "Sorry, it looks like that content isn't available on TuneIn" (CKWX is an alternative name for News 1130). Saying "play CKWX" instead produces the same response. Google Home recognizes "play CKWX" as an alternative to "play News 1130", and the station plays correctly either way. Selecting and playing the TuneIn station News 1130 from the Sonos app to the Sonos One works fine. Playing other TuneIn stations on the Sonos One by saying "Hey Google, play (station name)" seems to work fine in a few other tests. So for some reason the request to play this particular TuneIn station is bein
I’ve been having trouble with erratic responses from GA on Sonos for days, and now it’s completely broken! I eventually tried the last resort of unlinking and relinking my Sonos account to Google. Now I can’t activate Google Assistant on my Sonos speaker at all. Google sees the speaker just fine, and can play music to it. The Sonos app sees the speaker just fine, and can play music too it. But Google Assistant won’t link to it - Google Assistant just says that it couldn’t find the Sonos speaker, even though Google Home is playing music to it right now. Just as a test, I added Alexa instead. Installs quickly and works fine. The fault is between Sonos and Google. Returning to GA, I finally got it to find the Sonos speaker and install after about 25 tries. But it’s still not functional. It either gives no response or says “something went wrong/there was a glitch”. If I tell Google to resync devices, the Sonos speaker beeps and makes an announcement. But it quickly returns to unresponsive
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
Dear SonosAs a Sonos user which uses your integration with google assistant I think it’s absolutely horrible that you can’t choose the volume on the assistant. It doesn’t even include a mode for the evening/night. When I’m asking the assistant or for example turning of the lights in the night, assistant just screams out loud with the last playback volume and wakes up my whole family. This basically ruins the whole experience and makes it unusable, I’m even thinking of ditching the assistant on the Sonos speakers and buying some nests instead which i think shouldn’t even be considered when already having a full Sonos system. Please address this issue asap, or at least release a quick fix.
I have a Beam for about a year. Before, I was able to play music on my Beam normally by asking Google Assistant to play it from Spotify on the Beam. Recently I purchased couple of One gen 2 speakers and set them as surround. After that I’m unable to ask Google Assistant to play music on the Sonos. I also noticed that my Sonos is no longer listed as speaker on the “Media” menu in Google Home app. Now the app only detects my google nest speakers, but no sonos speaker.I can still play music using Sonos app or airplay, and all Google Assistant commands work perfectly. I have tried to reboot my Sonos and make them as single speakers, but still Google doesn’t detect the speakers in “Media” menu. Is there any bug that cause this or any change on Google policy that no longer allows non-Google speakers to play music using the google assistant?
