Hi Andrew

Thanks for that, I haven't tried it that way so must do so when I have time.
Certainly it's a kerfuffle to do it with Google Assistant integrated.

Kind regards,

Hi,

I didn't go the route of switching from Amazon to Google on the speaker
itself, for clarification this is if your speaker has the assistant built-in
and it allows you to switch from Alexa to Google.

What I wanted to do last night was integrate Sonos into Google so I would
control it from my Google Home Mini.  This means keeping Alexa on the
speakers themselves but allowing Google Home Mini as an extra control point.
For John you only have this option since you don't have Sonos speakers with
an integrated voice assistant.

I did this by going into the Google Home app, then adding the Sonos
integration by choosing the option to add a third-party device.  There was a
huge list of devices I could add and I had to pick Sonos from the list.  It
then took me to a site where I had to enter my Sonos account and password
info and at that point it linked the accounts and I could see the Sonos
speakers in the list of devices in the Google Home app.

Andrew.

When Sonos first announced you could use Google Assistant on their
integrated speakers the Sonos 1, I couldn't get it to work, and got a
similar message 'Oops something went wrong' when I tried to switch.  I
haven't revisited it to be honest, I use Alexa and bought a Google Home Mini
when they were on offer earlier in the year.  The way you have to switch
between Google and Alexa on the Sonos speakers is a bit of a pain.

Kind regards,

Hi I have tried to add Sonos to the goole but it says this is not available
in your region.
