I’ve seen the support article on the available commands through the Alexa Sonos skill. However, the command set it pretty limited. I have some suggestions I would like to see implemented. We have a Sonos Beam in our master bedroom...the kids’ bedrooms are right down the hall. These would be helpful in automatically managing the device when my wife and i are watching TV at night:
- I have an Alexa routine to switch Night Mode on every night at 9pm. However, there is no method to automatically switch it OFF the next morning. I have to manually do this through the app.
- The ability to control the bass level through Alexa. I usually keep the bass level at around 8 or 9. There’s a surprising amount of bass coming out of such a small soundbar. I would like to be able to have the skill automatically turn down the bass and night and then back up the next morning.
Others may have various reasons for wanting to control these features as well. I’m not sure why one would create the method for turning on Night Mode or Speech Enhancement without also enabling the ability to turn them back off through the Alexa skill. The API is obviously there because the app can control these features (manually, of course).
