1. Make sure your Sonos and Alexa devices are all powered up and connected to the network.
If you're new to Sonos, this means Installing the Sonos app, and going through the steps for Setting up Sonos here. There's a great video too.
If you're new to Alexa, install the Alexa app (currently only available in the US, UK, and Germany) and make sure your Alexa device(s) show up. They will be listed under Settings > Devices. Amazon has a setup guide for the Echo Dot here.
2. In the Alexa app, search for and add the Alexa Skill for Sonos.
3. Follow the on-screen prompts to authenticate your Amazon account, then your Sonos account.
4. Finally, inside your Alexa app, select discover devices under Smart Home or on the Sonos skill page.
You are now ready to try out some commands! There’s a great, comprehensive list here.
