If you play radio paradise via tune in it will play the live stream which would be in sync.

If you use a phone/tablet  to cast to the  home speaker you can use the phone to sync.   But the only voice commands available are the generic ones like  pause/resume and skip.

Sort of,  they haven't  opened up the ability to start  casting by voice command.     Best you can do at this point is  cast to the speaker and then use  voice commands to skip and pause.

Now that there is native Google Cast support, we can skip TuneIn and use the native app right? Would be nice to be able to say "Play Radio Paridise", and be able to skip numbers etc.

it is complaining "that is not available on tune in" 

thanks anyway
 

Hmmm...  Works fine for me. 

What country are you in? 

Are you sure you're saying "radio paradise"  rather than "paradise radio" or just 'paradise"?
 

In Massachusetts. It must be my Italian accent then :)
I will check tonight if my wife's voice works better 

 

It is now working, not sure what changed from yesterday. I noticed that G Home is sometime get to the Spotify playlist rather than the TuneIn channel when saying "Hey Google play RP on TuneIn". Instead with "Hey Google play RP on Radio" works always well.

Can add a bit to this.
There's still only a handful of audio apps you can launch by voice.
https://support.google.com/googlehome/answer/7172483?hl=en&ref_topic=7195641

It seems The Google Home apps are actually just chromecast  apps under the hood.    Since when you launch something like tunein it shows a casting notification on any connected Android phones.  Which can be used to stop the audio.

Currently you can cast the Android beta app to google home and  give  standard audio commands  like skip / pause / resume

Hey Bill,

How are things progressing with the Google Home App? It seems like the development of it would be a shortcut versus adding the Chromecasting function to both your Android and iOS Apps, and likely give the user better control over bitrates.

Personally, I'm asking as I moved my multi-room audio tech from Squeezebox to Chromecast Audio, and for some reason I can't control TuneIn's bit rates AND it drops a second or two every other song though I have great WAN and LAN stats.

Thanks man,

-Ben

We're developing an app for Google Home (hopefully, anyway — you have to ask them really, really nicely and then wait weeks for them to tell you if they'll allow your proposed app), so I bought one.

We just received a google home mini last night.  I've got it set up to my phone.  Do I have to subscribe to TuneIn in order to get RP to play?  Will it play if I install the RP app?

Perhaps I was a bit hasty in my previous post. The roadblock thrown up by my very-common type of Gmail account just seemed so ridiculous & unnecessary. 

RP via TuneIn is now working correctly ("Hey Google, play Radio Paradise on TuneIn"). My opinion of the relative audio quality of the two units still stands, though. 

I wasn't aware that Sonos was working on a Google-equipped model. I hope their implementation of that is better than their implementation of Alexa (google "Alexa on Sonos" and look for the user reviews/responses).

 
i can relate to your frustration with these roadblocks

this is how and why i purchased my first mac

i had a "windows meltdown" and finally i just got into my car and drove straight to the local apple store   {#Lol}

apple products are high quality and they just work, and that makes for a great customer experience

i haven't read any reviews of alexa on sonos

clearly this is something i need to look into

i just assumed that it was the same or similar "setup" on the amazon rig stacked on top of a high quality speaker

that's a concern for me if i can't get the same functionality with that tech paired with vendors like sonos

never had a problem with setup with either one

i paid about $179 for my first echo and $129 for my first ghome

the echo did sound better but for me the ghome is much at any work related questions

i did the pepsi challenge with both and a string of questions and goog's ai was better

just my experience

if i could get the better brains on a great speaker setup i bite

so i'm waiting on the new sonos spearker with g assistant built in to give that a try

OK. 

Total time to set up Echo:  5 easy minutes.
To set up Home: 1 long, frustrating hour.

Plus, it won't even play RP via TuneIn (which Echo does right out of the box). "Play Radio Paradise on TuneIn" (which works on Echo) gives me some crappy Italian station on Home.

And it sounds awful. Echo is not a HiFi device, but the audio quality is surprisingly listenable. Home sounds like a $10 bluetooth speaker from a truck stop. 

Fail.

 
So you're saying you're not yet sure about how good it is ?
