Disable Sonos One Alexa from playing a sound when I say "Alexa"
I just set up a Sonos One with Alexa and the sound is noticeably better than the Amazon Echo. On the Sonos One though, each and every time I call "Alexa" it plays some kind of acknowledgement tone. When I call my Echo or Dot, thankfully there is no such tone. Is there anyway to disable it?

But seriously. It’s not coming. Google Assistant, yeah I know, will hopefully be windows-98-error-sound free.
It does turn on already, but whether or not that is adequate notification that Alexa is listening is most likely up to Amazon, not Sonos. Also, many people mount their speakers in locations where the light is not visible. I think the tone should probably be on by default (although, Amazon please, choose a better tone!) and then leave it up to the user to decide whether or not to turn it off, perhaps with an additional disclaimer.
Coming from other Alexa devices, I find this sound to interfere with the command I'm giving, forcing me to pause after saying "Alexa".
If u cannot do it I have to return my 2 sonos one
100% agree. That sounds is very loud plus it's sound quality is not premium at all, bum... Sounds like 14 bucks speaker
Thanks for reaching out!
more than a year since this post ^^^ from Sonos (Oct-2017) - come on sonos, this can't be a hard feature to implement
