What commands can I use with Google Assistant?

For your Google Assistant, there are plenty of commands you can use. You can play music, ask for the forecast, or handle smart home appliances.

The list of general music-related commands is given below. Simply say ‘Hey Google...’ before the command in the list. Any older devices can, instead, require the use of “OK Google…”

Keep in mind that you can add “in the (room name)” to the end of all of your commands if you want to play in a specific room. Otherwise, the music will play on the speaker that responded to your request.

How to use voice commands on Google Home 

When using Google Home, it’s important to start your commands with “Ok Google” and, if Deezer is not your default music service, you should end every command with “on Deezer.” 

  • “Ok Google, play my Flow on Deezer
  • “Ok Google, play My music on Deezer
  • “Ok Google, (Deezer Editor’s Playlist) music on Deezer
  • ”Ok Google, play (name of your playlist) on Deezer
  • “Ok Google, play (artist name) on Deezer
  • Ok Google, play (name of album or song) on Deezer
  • “Ok Google, (genre name) music on Deezer

You can also ask Google to play music according to your mood for example, “Ok Google, play something happy.” 

What else can I ask?

You can ask Google to do a lot more, like tell you what song is playing, skip to the next track or even adjust the volume using these commands:

  • “Ok Google, next song” 
  • “Ok Google, skip forward (X) secs”
  • “Ok Google, shuffle”
  • “Ok Google play this song again”
  • “Ok Google, repeat this song”
  • “Ok Google, who is playing?”
  • “Ok Google, I like/dislike this song”
  • “Ok Google, set volume to 5”
  • “Ok Google, set volume to 40%.”

Note: You can also set and manage your media settings in select countries in English only. To learn more and check country availability please visit Google’s support page

In case the google assistant commands not working on sonos

These are the Steps to resolve issues with the Google Assistant not following commands, not responding at all, or responding with an error.

Before you start

  • Check the microphone status light on your voice-enabled Sonos speaker. If the light is off, tap the microphone icon to re-enable the microphone and try the command again. Move the speaker away from walls, other speakers, and sources of background noise to make sure that the Google Assistant can hear you.
  • You can check what your Google Assistant heard on by adding a filter for Assistant. If the Google Assistant isn’t hearing your commands correctly, consider moving your device to reduce loud ambient sound that could impact how well your voice-enabled Sonos speaker (or Google Assistant-enabled product) can hear you. 
  • A Google account with the Google Assistant can only be used with one Sonos system at a time. If you have a second Sonos system in another location, you’ll need to use a second Google account if you’d like to use the Google Assistant in both places.
