Hi,
I have recently purchased an Echo Dot to go along with my two Play 1 speakers.

When I setup the Alexa skill I created a group which contains the two Play 1's and the Echo Dot, however I can't seem to get playback to work through the Dot as well as the Play's (I can get it to play through the two Play 1's).

Is this possible?

Thanks.

Grouping 3rd party speakers via the Alexa app is not supported at this time. There is a new AVS Multi-Room Music SDK coming from Amazon early next year that addresses this functionality, but whether Sonos can utilize this new SDK remains to be seen; the syncing methods between the two are quite different.
