I set up Google Assistant in my two sonos one (gen 2) and i try to use sleep timer and it not work.

When I have spotify playing, if I say "Sleep Timer for 10 minutes", Google Assistant responds "Sleep timers can only be set when media is playing".

Is there any way to get this to work?

I know this Community section has grown a lot, but this limitation is one of the many issues first raised way back at the beginning. Apparently nothing has changed - in fact AFAIK no issue has been fixed since Sonos first added Google Assistant support.

I don’t think the google sleep timer is available yet on Sonos devices (not sure?), but I know that Sonos has its own sleep timer within the Sonos App “Now Playing” screen (...) ellipses menu.

See screenshot… 

Hopefully that will work for you, for now, at least.👍
