Hi, I'm been waiting for this features for the pass year. And I've see 3rd party websites selling Echo dot in singapore. But with the launch of this service from SONOS, I've too notice is only supported in UK,US and Germany, could you advice will it work in asia country such as Singapore, Australia and etc where I'm using the current Playbar and Play 1?
Hey everyone, Firstly, I have scoured threads relating to Alexa and Sonos, but haven’t seen anybody ask or answer this question. I currently own one Play:1 and have been waiting for the announcement and details of the Alexa skill before expanding my Sonos range throughout my home. With the recent details of the new Amazon Echo, I was thinking this could be a good option for smaller rooms, rather than another Play:1. So, let’s say I buy two Sonos One when they release - I create a stereo pair in my living room with these, then I have a Play:1 in my dining room with an Echo Dot, then I put a new Echo in my bedroom - if I were playing music on my living room Sonos pair, could I then also play this in my bedroom at the same time on the stand-alone Echo? I’m not sure this would work because of the cross platform and also how grouping works in Sonos (I don’t own any Echo products, which may be why I’m asking this question), so thought I would ask those who have both! Thanks
I have a Boost system which runs 2x Play One's in stereo, 1x Play One and a Play 3. A little confused at the new development. a) Two ways to make Alexa work with my system. 1: purchase the Alexa/Sonos speaker or 2: purchase an Amazon Echo or Dot. Is this correct, to make all my system work? b) Working with Boost, this creates a "special WIFI system just for Sonos speakers" Will this be ok to work with a) ? I have read everything on here about Alexa etc., I just want to have my system working under this exciting new system. Please help. Thank you.
I have an Amazon Dot connected to my play5 using the line in option. Until today Alexa speech volume and the music volume were fine. I have now updated my speakers, but now I can hardly hear Alexa speaking. (Weather reports etc) If I ask her to play music the volume is fine. I have set the line in volume to 10 for the speaker in the options, but this makes no difference. Anyone else having this issue.? Thanks Marc
I realise this is a beta release and that Sonos would obviously ensure Amazon music works first but having waited a year to find out I can’t use Deezer with Alexa is disappointing. Whilst I have an amazon music account the integration doesn’t work, if I ask Alexa to play something it plays a short example of the song and not from my Amazon playlist. A poor user experience from what should’ve been a great announcement. The new app is ok but you’ve removed the swipe right facility to browse music when in room playback mode and swipe up to view nav bar doesn’t work.
Hi, I set up my bedroom Play1 tonight with an Echo Dot and followed all the directions. Currently, if I ask Alexa to play something specific, Sonos just kicks on and plays the current queue. If I clear the queue and try again, Alexa tells me that the Bedroom is not responding. I have also set up Amazon Music as the default service in Alexa and added it to my Sonos account. Am I missing something?
I've been waiting for a long time for the Alexa enabled Sonos. What I didn't know was going to happen isnthat I would have to buy all new Sonos Ones to get that feature. What I have loved about Sonos that you buy the speaker and it is supposed to get better through software updates...it's part of their marketing literature. What I don't understand is why is Somos deviating from this? I'm now required to buy more speakers to get the feature I want, making my old speakers obsolete? I don't want to have to drop another $1000 to update my home system...I'm only 3 years into building my Sonos system across my house. Please tell me there is a software update that will work with my Alexa Dots in the very near future. Very frustrated loyal customer, Ryan C
Having some issue enabling the skill. It asks me to link accounts... So I do. Log into sonos, then I log into Amazon and when it asks to link them I hit continue. Then nothing. No success or fail screen, it just takes me directly back to the alexa app home screen. I'm hoping I'm doing seething wrong. (worth noting my controller app and sonos speakers are up to date). Any ideas? I'm in the UK if that makes any difference.
I have 3 rooms that I like to group together. I did this in the Alexa app and called them "Everything". If I say "Alexa play Tom Petty on Everything" it plays Amazon music great but if I say "Alexa play Tom Petty radio from Pandora on Everything" it only plays on the Echo and not the Sonos.
I have two Alexa's which are directly linked to Sonos players, One is a Play:5 and another a connect, in both cases the Echo is connected via a 3.5 mm audio cable. After today's update sounds intrinsic to Alexa, such as "What time is is" no longer play through the sonos speakers. If it disconnect the patch cord the sounds play just fine on the echo itself and other audio such as audiobooks/Spotify/SiriusXM stream as well as alarm and timer tones play just fine (and yes it's by patch cable not the new method, if I unplug the cable the echo plays the music via it's speakers). The sounds which are missing are the ones using the "Alexa" voice. I've tried disabling the app, forgetting all the speakers and then setting it all up again which didn't correct the issue. Any ideas this is a rather annoying bug.
I'm excited about the release of the Sonos/Alexa integration. Thank you to the Sonos team for getting this out the door! Setting up the skill was a breeze and it seems to be working very well for me so far. Naturally, I already have some ideas for improvement... :-) I have an Echo device in each room where I also have one or more Sonos zones. For example: - Echo Dot bedroom - Sonos ZP80 bedroom (with a dedicated amp and speakers) - Echo Show kitchen (covers kitchen, dining area, and living area) - Sonos Play:5 kitchen - Sonos Play:1 pair dining area - Sonos Playbar (with sub and surrounds) living area - Echo Dot office - Sonos ZP80 office (with a dedicated amp and speakers) I think it would be great to be able to associate a given Echo device with one or more Sonos zones, so that Echo device would control those zones by default. I would still want the ability to control other Sonos zones by naming them explicitly. For example, if I am talking to my Echo Show in t
I’m currently using the sonos “line-in” auto play so that all audio from an Alexa dot is heard through the sonos. I was hoping to use the Alexa / Sonos integration and remove the audio cable. Is there a way to make sure all Alexa audio is sent to a particular sonos by default? For example, when I ask echo to play jeopardy I want it to be heard through sonos. Thanks!
Hi there Sonos community, This is probably a very early question to ask but I have been waiting to buy Sonos just for the Alexa integration. And now they are releasing the Sonos One YAY :D. BUT... when preordering it says "Voice control for Sonos is not supported in your country, yet". Alexa is actually not supported in Sweden but I have imported it and it works but somewhat limited in regards to location services etc.That doesn't really bother me since I use it to control my Philips Hue, entertainment setup and of course timers when cooking food. I recently purchased the Logitech Harmony Hub Elite which Alexa doesn't fully support in Sweden (location restricted skill). I have managed to get around it using Yonomi but missing out on play/pause/volume up/volume down functions. I know Yonomi works with Sonos but will Alexa actually work in the Sonos One in Sweden. [b]TL;DR Will I be able to take my echo dot and replace it with the Sonos One or will it sense my location (Sweden)
I have echos and sonos in rooms that are adjacent, and i noticed in your email saying that you'll make it so just the room you're talking to turns down. I'd prefer that you left an option in to lower the volume on all speakers. As I said, having echo and sonos in adjacent rooms means that speakers in other rooms can still make it difficult for alexa to understand my commands.
