PROBLEM: When I ask to Google Assistant to play some song uploaded on my free YouTube Music account or on my local NAS it can’t.
STEP by STEP action:
I have only one Google Account on my Android Device.
First of all I set up Google Assistant to control Sonos throught my Google Account (on my Android Device).
Then I connected my free YouTubeMusic account to Sonos App and I set YouTube Music as my preferred service on my Android Device.
Then I uploaded some songs on my YoutubeMusic account. If I ask “Ok Google play porcelain of Moby on Sonos” it reply “Ok I’ll play porcelain of Moby from YoutubeMusic on Sonos…. I’m sorry the content is not available on Sonos”.
I also tried to remove the YoutubeMusic Account from the Sonos App then I uploaded some songs on my NAS and paired Sonos App with NAS (I can see it on my Music Library on Sonos App). So I asked “Ok Google play porcelain of Moby on Sonos” then Google assistant reply “Ok I’ll play porcelain of Moby from YouTubeMusic on Sonos… I’m sorry I can’t go further If you don’t setup your account on this provider”. Why? I would like to listen porcelain that resides on my NAS!
So the problems are twice:
- I can’t use Google Assistant to play uploaded songs (on free YouTube Music)
- I can’t use Google Assistant to play songs on my local NAS.
Anyway, If I use Sonos App with its browser I can play songs from my free YouTubeMusic account or NAS. In other words I can only play them if I use the app instead of voice.
P.S. I further set up TuneIn with Sonos, Google Assistant works well when I ask to play some favorite radios on Sonos.
May I’m wrong with somethings?
Same issue as described before in other topics
