The short answer is no. In your scenario, you're using the dot as a Bluetooth speaker, not as a voice assistant. Since the Sonos play:1 (and all other Sonos products) are not Bluetooth, you can't send audio to them through Bluetooth.

The long answer is yes, depending on what music app you're using, you can 'cast' the audio to your Sonos speakers. I believe you can do this with Pandora and Spotify, not sure on others. The other method would be using airplay 2, which is sort of like Bluetooth on steroids. For that to work however, your phone needs to be an iPhone and you would need one of the newer Sonos models that are airplay 2 compatible.
