Sonos Voice Control is excellent. It just works and does exactly what I need for my Apple Music account. I also listen to Qobuz, Spotify and BBC Sounds regularly - any idea if or when they might be added to Sonos Voice Control?

Please. Where are my manners, it won’t let me edit my own posts.

Hey @sgoldswo and @Jeffrey_35,

 

We’re always looking to add new options to our products and services. More music services will follow in time but we have nothing to announce right now 🙂

I would ask - please - for Spotify, Plex, local NAS library and SiriusXM as soon as you can.  Just installed the Sonos voice control, but alas it doesn’t work for me as none of the above are supported.

Asking it to “play music” as the tutorial suggests gives a response that I have to sign up for a music service first.  As you can see from above, I do and have.  Just not what’s currently supported.

I'd like to be able to get "Hey sonos" to play Radio 1,for some reason it plays BBC Arabic.??

That does seem odd. Next time you do it, I’d submit a system diagnostic within 10 minutes and call Sonos Support to discuss it. That might give them some additional hard data to pass on to the engineers.

SiriusXM is likely last on the list, its object tree and SMAPI search results are a nightmare to try and match with speech intent. The only thing more painful would be the old Rhapsody API (may that RIP).

Spotify and local library are trivial.

Can’t speak to Qobuz, Plex or BBC Sounds, never tried to wire them to a speech engine.
