If I change the Alexa wake up word on my 6 Echo devices to say “computer”, will the 12 speakers in my sonos system still respond to the wake up word Alexa? Or wont the speakers do Alexa tasks at all?

Any Sonos speakers with Alexa will respond to Alexa.

Hi @leobel00.

Welcome to the Sonos community and thanks for reaching out to us. I understand the situation of knowing what may or may not work in regards to the Alexa wake up word.

I definitely agree with @UKMedia. Alexa would definitely respond to the wake word “Alexa”. However, currently, the feature of changing the Alexa wake up word is not yet supported. On the other hand, I would be more than happy to send this to our engineering team to take a look into.  I would suggest subscribing to this thread and on our announcement topic for any feature updates and feature release.

Please let us know if you still have further questions or concerns. We are always here to help.
