Voice Assistant Beam disables itself

Hello. This last month, I've noticed that the voice light is turned off so I try and switch the assistant back on but it's fully disabled. Load up the app and I can see there is no service assigned. I did have Google assistant assigned, both times this has happened.

First time it happened, simply adding the service in the app worked perfectly but tonight I tried but the assistant app couldn't find the product. Rebooted the phone and beam, still same issue. Even connected up via a network cable thinking it could be an issue with my wireless AP. 

The ultimate fix was to reset the beam, which has lost true play settings and just a bit annoying, even though adding the beam back to the controller was easy.

Has anyone had this issue and if so is there a way to stop this from happening?

Hi @johndanielpalmer.
Thank you for your detailed post outlining this issue.
Sorry to hear about what's happening and that is really unlikely.
There are a few points that we need to explore in order to figure this out:
> Were there any changes made on your network before you initially experience the issue?
>Doing a factory reset is not suggested troubleshooting for Sonos devices because you will really lose all the data and settings stored on the speaker.
>I suggest using updated Sonos and Google Assistant Apps.
>Ensure that your Google Assistant account isn’t in use on another Sonos system.
>After you did the reset and successfully add the Google Assistant back to Sonos, did the issue persist?
>You can try to check this article about Help and tips for Google Assistant on Sonos.
>If none of the steps are helping resolve the issue you're having, I would recommend that you submit a system diagnostic through the Sonos app, provide us the confirmation number to help us identify what is causing the issue.
