Is it possible to listen to music on your sonos speakers AND use your amazon echos as additional speakers at the same time?  

 

I have 5 sonos speakers and 1 echo and am able to ask alexa to play music but it will play on either the 5 sonos speakers or the echo….i can’t seem to get it to play on ALL the speakers….it is an endless either or no matter what I do. 

 

Any guidance would be so appreciated.

Alexa allows single 3rd party speakers to be added/grouped to echo devices and the Echo device controls the buffering to ensure that all speakers play a synchronous audio stream. No other mult room speakers are able to be grouped. This is because all multi room speakers use there own propriety buffering technology. 

Sonos are currently suing Google over copyright infringement in this area.
