I have three Sonos Ones (S2) all with Alexa enabled.  The problem is whenever I ask Alexa to play music it comes out of the Sonos in my Kitchen regardless of where I ask i.e I ask in the bedroom to listen to music and it comes on it kitchen whereas I want to listen On the unit I ask in the bedroom.

 

Any help would be appreciated,

Hi

This is probably due to how you have your Alexa groups set-up.  Please check out my post here, it’s old now but will still explain things.
