I’ve got a bunch of Sonos speakers in my house that I love, tied to a paid Amazon Music subscription. In the last couple months Alexa has started to mix up music requests.
If I say something like “Alexa, play songs by The Beatles,” the system will play one song by the Beatles, then a piece of classical music, then another song by the Beatles, then a song by Billy Joel and so on. Sometimes it doesn’t even play a song by the Beatles to begin with: it’ll just play something that seems vaguely related, like Bob Dylan.
It’s as if I’ve got an invisible music queue somewhere that’s getting new requests mashed in among the old ones whenever I ask Alexa to play something. When Alexa is playing music, though, the queue in my Sonos app isn’t available. I’ve tried clearing my Sonos queue when Alexa isn’t playing, and that doesn’t seem to help.
Any ideas? Connectivity is good, and every other feature of the system is working as expected.
