As those of you who have tried Alexa know, Alexa can check and read your Gmail when you say “Alexa, check email”, but Google Home and other Google Assistant speakers just respond “Sorry, I can’t help with email yet”.

But try asking GA on Sonos

It responds “No matching emails found in Gmail”.

Uh, what? Is it actually trying to check Gmail? If so, what account? Emails matching what? Does it only read emails from Sonos? :grinning:

Hi @Doug Ames, thanks for reaching out. Regarding your concern about Google Assistant on Sonos, I'd like to ask some questions to further check on the issue.

  • Do you have the same Google Account signed in on the Sonos App and the Google Assistant?
  • Does it read your email before on Google Assistant or it never read any email from your Gmail on the Google Assistant?

And also, on your question about google Assistant on Sonos responding “No matching emails found”. I'll try to further check on that, but you may refer as well on this link for Controlling Sonos with the Google Assistant

Let us know how you get on with the advice above.

We're here to answer any further questions you have.
