From all the features that we're hearing about, it seems that the Sonos/Alexa integration is only one way. Alexa can talk to Sonos (through the Sonos cloud), but the Sonos cloud cannot talk to Alexa (through Alexa's cloud). In other words, Sonos can't tell Alexa what song it's currently playing, or what volume it's at, or what grouping are active. Is this correct?
If it is correct, is this something that could possibly change in the future, or is it a limitation of Amazon's speaker API?
I can see that becoming a rather limiting feature as time goes on if the communication is only one way.

It's partially correct. Alexa knows what song is playing on Sonos, but doesn't know about the groups. It's one of those things where the skill will improve over time.
Some things are going to be more possible than others, but we're on it with the Amazon Alexa team.
