Different behavior controlling Playbar after Spotify update using Alexa

Hey guys, here is my experience until now with a Playbar and an Echo Dot after the Spotify Update.

I can now successfully launch playlists, songs and artists from Alexa but I see a different behavior than before the update.

The thing that I found weird is this, previously when I put some music to play on my Playbar from Spotify (thru the app), I could just say "Alexa, next/previous song" or "Alexa, pause/resume" and it did the action on my Playbar.

After this last update, I need to add the speaker name to the actions otherwise Alexa would not pause/resume/next/previous/volume up/volume down. I have to say "Alexa pause Living Room" and etc...

Is this intended? Do someone else found this out too? Will it return to be as before when it controls Spotify "globally"?
Thanks

Apparently it's back as it was before (and stated in https://sonos.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4343?_ga=2.101123590.680809778.1512581844-515559700.1511199177) where Spotify correctly skips/plays/pause without specifying the room name.

Thanks Sonos!
