I am trying to set up a Group called “everywhere” to play on my 3 Alexa devices, Alexa, Dot and sonos.  

Group works great for Alexa and Dot.  When I try to Add Sonos Alexa app says it is not compatible.  All are on the same network and the Alexa app sees all 3 speakers.  

Starting to get a little disappointed in the Beam.  This should not be this hard.  

Any ideas? I have made sure that everything is on a single account in Alexa.  That was an issue in the past with lights, I was logged into my account on my phone and Alexa was set to my wife’s  I have since logged into my wife’s alexa app account for the time being in hopes of fixing this.

Hi,

 

Echo Speakers and Sonos are different systems so you cannot mix groups for playing music.

 

Echo speaker groups in Alexa can play music in sync

 

Sonos speakers groups in Sonos App can play music in sync

 

Amazon also restrict some features for 3rd party speakers, such as drop in, calling etc.
