I don't think Amazon has released Alexa in Hong Kong, so Sonos hasn't added their support either. You'll need Amazon to release the entire Echo architecture, and then Sonos has to do some magic to get the skill out as well.

I hear that guys are getting Alexa to work in Hong Kong, even though it's not released here yet... is there any work around? And do Sonos have an anticipated release date?
So with the news of HomePod today, I decided to plunge in the Alexa world. I have a 5.1 setup with 2 Play:1s as the rear channels. I'm reading I will need 2 new Sonos Ones for stereo connection, but will it work (with the Alexa features) in a 5.1 setup with the playbar and sub?

That's correct. The Sonos Ones would act as your surrounds with the PLAYBAR. Alexa would be available from both.
thanks so much, just bought 2 for pickup today! will have to figure out what to do with my other play:1s now!
