Turning off Google Assistant confirmations

Is there a solution to have Google Assistant stop announcing which playlist or song is going to be played via Spotify using my Sonos speakers? I like to have the music start without Google Assistance actually announcing it first.


Thanks for your input.

Hi @camel P.

Welcome, thank you for reaching out to Sonos Community.

This feature of google announcing the songs going to be played is controlled by Google.

Google assistance is just forwarding all its command to Sonos.

So I'm afraid theirs nothing we can do about this in the meantime.

Let us know if it works. If you need help with any other information, please be sure to let us know.

The feature you’re asking for has been discussed many a time in other communities on other platforms.

A “brief mode”, a feature available on Amazon Echo speakers, isn’t available on any Google Assistant speakers at this moment, including the devices made my Google.

One thing that isn’t working on Sonos speakers only is turning off lights assigned to the same room as the speaker with a chime instead of Google Assistant shouting “TURNING OFF BEDSIDE LIGHT” at you.
