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?

- 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 heard that it should be a Google Account problem. I have someone else asking it with another account and there the response is :
‘ I cannot play this on this device, but I can on any other device’.
I have tried it on a nest mini speaker: Works like a charm.
I paid alot of money to have this functionality on a speaker I expect it to work.
- It isn’t possible play music from a Google Play Playlist? Or to Shuffle my playlist? I get responses that it it not possile to do that? Again why is that? Is there a fix for this?
I did not read the reviews after I bought the speaker and I have seen that there are multiple issues with this, so I would expect this is on the short roadmap to be fixed?
Any help or feedback is appreciated.
