Note that it's recommended to use the One as your left speaker and the Play:1 as your right, since the left speaker coordinates everything for the pair.

Also note that in the future if you have any issues, Sonos will likely want you to remove the pairing between the two speakers before they provide any assistance, since that's not a supported setup. So while it's a set-it-and-forget-it thing, having an iOS device available for future needs is still highly recommended.
Done! 😃
I have many Sonos products in my home, In the den I have a play bar, a sub and two play 1's. I also have an Ecco Dot in the den, and bought a sonos one to get rid of the Dot...SO DISAPPOINTED in Sonos for not allowing me to pair the new One. Love the products but hate this omission!

I have good news for you. You can pair a Sonos 1 and a Sonos One. Tadaaaa !!
A Play:1 and Sonos One can be GROUPED together as two different zones playing the same content.

They cannot be PAIRED (or bonded) together as one zone in stereo (one speaker as the left, one as the right) or as part of a surround sound system with a Playbar or Playbase. Hopefully, with the number of requests for this over just the past couple of days (there are at least three or four topics about it around here so far), Sonos will figure out how to make it happen, but it's up to them to do it.

Added 5/5/2018 - UPDATE - there is a third-party iOS app called SonoSequencr that is capable of creating a stereo pair out of mismatched speakers, including the Sonos One and the Play:1. Mismatched speaker pairs are not recommended, as despite the visual similarities between these two speakers, there are significantly different audio "fingerprints" between them. That said, it can be done with this third-party app. The app is not free, however it's a very reasonable price if pairing these speakers is a priority for you.

I've heard that an Android app called Macronos can do the same, though I have no personal experience with this app so I can't vouch for what it can or can't do.
Best post ever! Just bought a Sonos 1 to go with my Play One and was despairing they wouldn’t pair....thankyou!! They paired immediately with the app

Is the work around really a work around? I mean I pair left and right sonos speakers not because I want the same sound but because I want to listen to right and left channel that is in so much music. Does the app everyone talks about do that? Thanks everyone Has anyone investigated CES announcements this year. https://www.wisaassociation.org/

Yes, it sets up left & right stereo-paired speakers that appear as one 'room' in the Sonos apps. Features like AirPlay 2 work perfectly with a single Sonos One as part of the pair.

Thanks everyone. Has anyone investigated CES announcements this year. https://www.wisaassociation.org/
We'll have to see how much traction this new standard gets. Right now it's mostly aspirational in terms of products actually delivered, and it's hardly without competition from existing solutions.

I don't see why anyone would want to 'pair' a Play:1 with the Sonos One. maybe because we already own a bunch of Play:1 speakers and don't think it should be necessary to buy a One to pair with another One? That said, I understand how it could be a circuitry/hardware/firmware issue but still prefer backward compatibility
