"Hey Sonos" - Sonos Voice Assistant
Coming June 1?https://www.theverge.com/2022/5/4/23056149/sonos-voice-assistant-features-release-date?“Hey Sonos” will be the wake word for Sonos Voice Control, and the company’s internal tests show it to be quicker than competing assistant services at core music tasks.I would love to see the ability to play songs from my personal music library using Sonos Voice.
Intercom feature request
Hey! Since many of your products have both speaker and microphone in the same device, would it be impossible to contact two (or more of these) in a “call” with each other? Apparently Sonos isn’t able to use Amazon Alexa drop in feature (because of missing blinking LEDs or something?), but could you perhaps make it’s own intercom feature for multiroom homes with multiple speakers? Just use Sonos Voice Control instead of Alexa/Google Assistant to enable this feature so you wouldn’t be affected by other companies like Amazon? I know I’m not alone wanting badly this feature without use of any additional echo devices. Sincerely yours,Aksulotli
Sonos Voice Control answer volume too loud
Hello, I’m using SVC on the Roam. Any answer given by SVC is (subjectively) twice as loud as the actual media volume. This makes it extremely disturbing and unusable for me because it’s basically yelling to the whole neighborhood about my Sonos setup status… making me go to great lengths to actively not use it. What’s the solution here? Thanks in advance. (P.S. this goes somewhat hand in hand with a different topic of mine, discussing the need to not have answers at all.)
iTunes Match with Sonos Voice Control
Hello All,Wondering if there is a way to get the new Sonos Voice Control to work with iTunes Match? Technically, iTunes Match works by matching your physical copies of songs with songs on the Apple Music Library. On the Sonos App, I’ve linked my Apple Music (iTunes Match) subscription with their services, but because it is not legitimately “Apple Music”, I can’t get Sonos Voice Control to work properly with my Match catalogue. Anyone have any suggestions here? Would be nice to be able to send music easily from Roam to Move, but you can’t do that simply with Airplay Music, so I was hoping to be able to start up music directly on the speakers with the Sonos App.
Digging the privacy angle of your Sonos Voice Control. Would love to see it supplant other services. Any chance of considering the following feature requests:Set alarms via voice Set timers (multiple, please) — really useful in the kitchen Intercom functionality (speak a phrase/announcement and have that play on all Sonos speakers — including S1 if possible) Multiple voice recognition & service linkage — or at least a way to specific when instance/account of a music service to play (ie Apple Music - mine, Apple Music - yours, etc…)Regardless of the above, you’re off to a roaring start. Keep up the great work!
Sonos Voice Control - roll out dates?
It seems US has already got the SVC released and seen online that France will get SVC (French?) later this year, but what about the rest of the world? Would be nice to see some kind of timeline for us who don’t want to share what we say with google or amazon.I would be happy to be able to use the same version as for the US, as English is still the main language in my household and I wouldn’t want a local language version.
Controlling Sonos Connect Amp (Second Gen) with Voice Control.
Bare with me here:My setup for the past few years since we got our pool is this.Sonos Second Gen Connect Amp (the white/grey one, not the new black one).This powers two outdoor speakers. I had a google mini speaker outside, that I would talk to while in the pool to change songs, change artist, etc. This has all been working until I changed to the Nest Audio.Below is my thread I have created on the google forums just for reference. I was thinking of purchasing a Sonos Roam since it is portable and waterproof. I would use this to tell Sonos what to do while I am in the pool.My question is, can I get it to function similar to the google speaker, where it does not play music, it just plays on the amp and two speakers.For example, if I am in the pool and I tell the Roam to play an artist, it will start playing on the connect amp, and not the roam. Basically just want the Roam for Sonos voice control. Can it work like this?I am considering an Alexa device just for this, but all my stuff
The only "Controlling Sonos with an Amazon Speaker/Alexa" thread you'll ever need!
I know there are tons of topics and megathreads explaining how to control your Sonos system using an Amazon speaker/Alexa however they all seem fragmented with different procedures and troubleshooting steps and are daunting to try and get through. I wanted to detail out the method that finally worked for me (and that Sonos Tier 1 tech support never reviewed with me).I am a custom integrator and at some point I found out that some of my customer’s Sonos systems no longer worked in conjunction with an Amazon speaker that had previously worked just fine. For example saying “Alexa, play some holiday music” to an Echo Dot with holiday music following in the associated Sonos zone...this stopped working at some point. This was no good as they had adapted to this simple method of playing music through their Sonos systems by simply telling it to.I am not referring to setting up Alexa on an Alexa-enabled Sonos speaker w/ a built-in mic (ARC, BEAM, ONE) as that seems very stable. I am referring t
Sonos Voice: Sorry, your Amazon Music subscription does not allow you to play this content
I’m using Sonos Voice Assistant with Amazon Music. A few days ago, it suddenly stopped working. Almost any content I request gets denied. For instance, I say “Hey Sonos, play Michael Jackson”. Unfortunately, the answer is (almost?) always “Sorry, your Amazon Music subscription does not allow you to play this content.”. I don’t have Amazon Music Unlimited, but Prime Music. It used to work just fine. Furthermore, it does still work if I choose the same content via the Sonos app or the Amazon Music app. Thus, I guess this is an issue with the Sonos Voice Assistant. Maybe it got something to do with the latest changes for Amazon Music, which increased the number of available songs from 2M to 100M I think? I already removed the Amazon Music service from the Sonos app and re-added it. Didn’t change anything.
Sonos Voice Assistant Default Service
Hi All, I just started using the new Sonos Voice Assistant and it seems to be working quite well so far. Whenever I ask it to play an album or a song it likes to always default to Apple Music, but I’d rather it default to Amazon Music without have to always specify “On amazon Music” every time I ask it something. Any ideas how to achieve this?Thanks
Sonos Voice Control is GREAT!
Just got Sonos Voice Control on my Beam Gen 2.(I have 5 other speakers around my home) I purposely avoided all the other voice Sonos speakers because I didn’t like the idea of Amazon or Google listening in on me, not to mention their annoying voices. But Sonos knocked it outta the park with their new Sonos Voice Control. The professional actor chosen is perfect. It is quick as can be and best of all never interrupts the mood or feel of the music. His voice truly has the class and charm of Sonos. I like how it listens a bit longer so when you say “Hey Sonos turn it down” you can wait and see if you like the volume, if not, follow up with “More” and the volume will go down more. This is a nice touch without any chime or voice interrupting the music. You can follow when Sonos Voice Control is listening if you look at the brightness level on the light near the mic. Now I have a massive music library that lives on Dropbox and is meticulously organized in Apple Music(iTunes). I play my
voice assistant issues

Custom commands for Sonos Voice Control [developer API?]
I was wondering if there are any plans to expose some kind of developer API or custom commands for Sonos Voice Control?What I have in mind is invoking a webhook with a command recognized by Sonos. I’d love to use Sonos in my home automation system e.g. by saying Hey Sonos, turn off the lights.As developer I don’t actually need Sonos to integrate with any of the home automation systems. What I would be happy to have is Sonos system to call a defined webhook with recognized words or broadcasting this with MQTT or any other common protocol.In ecosystems like Google Assistant or Alexa these are vastly more complicated, but having this kind of easy-access API would open Sonos to home automation community and similar enthusiasts.
