Alexa on Sonos Move.

Apologies if this has been covered but I’m banging my head against a brick wall here!


I have a stereo pair of play 5’s in my living room (and an Echo Show to control in that room), a pair of One’s in the kitchen (obviously built-in Alexa) and a brand new Move in the bedroom. 

If I ask Alexa to “play *insert song*” in the kitchen or living room, it plays it straight away from Deezer (my chosen preferred service). However, a voice command on the Move seems to be totally disconnected from that and attempts to play music from Amazon, despite me having set Deezer as the preferred service on the Alexa app also!? 

Is this a known issue with Move? Your help is appreciated!
