I have the Play One with Alexa which works amazing. I also have an Echo Dot in another room that works beautifully with my Sonos system. The only slightly annoying thing is that I have to tell my Echo Dot "Play Rock in the Living room". If I don't specifically say "in the living room" the dot plays the music (which is technically correct). Does anyone know if there is a way to change the default player/speaker so that I no longer have to specifically say the location of the speakers I want to use? In other words I would just say "Play Rock" and my Sonos speakers would kick on.
I can't seem to find anything specific to this question while searching the Alexa forums.

Nope, this is the difference between a Sonos One vs a Play:1 + Echo Dot combination. If you think about it, this is the logical way for Alexa to work; you are asking Alexa>Smart Home>Device 1(Echo Dot) to output music on Alexa>Smart Home>Device 2(Sonos Player)
This all may change when/if Sonos supports Alexa Groups but there is no time frame for this at present.
