I finally got alexa to recognize my sonos 1 speakers. When I give the command to play music on sonos, alexa states that amazon music is streaming on two divices and asks if I want to stream on sonos. I answer yes, and the music plays on both devices, alexa and the sonos speakers, when i say no, the music only plays on alexa. I only want the music to play on sonos...How do I do that.

You need to include the Room Name in the command. e.g. 'Alexa, play Soft Jazz on Kitchen Sonos' where Kitchen Sonos is the Device name in the Alexa App>Smart Home>Devices and the Room name in the Sonos App.

The problem is trying to get the Sonos and the echo dots to play together is giving me a headache , does anybody have any ideas ? Thanks

It's not possible to sync music across Sonos and Echo devices. You could connect your radiogram to a Sonos Amp to output the music to your Sonos system.
