Can Alexa ask before playing on speakers that were previously grouped.

This morning, I ask the Sonos 1 in my office to play a local news station, I had forgotten that on Sunday all speakers were grouped, needless to says Alexa complied and woke up everyone in the house. 😞
SO it would be great if the Alexa skill recognized that the speaker being targeted realized that it is part of the group, and asked if I wanted to play to the group or just that particular speaker.

At this time, Amazon's Alexa skill set knows very little about third party grouped speakers. It thinks it is playing to a single room, it is the Sonos app that does the grouping. Early next year, Amazon is addressing grouping and other facets of third party multi-room speakers with their new AVS Multi-Room Music SDK. I guess we will see then what this new SDK has for functionality.
Thanks for the reply
