I’m dug in deep in the Sonos ecosystem, but this is my first time with a Port!
I’m curious about the Port’s Alexa integration. Right now I only have two sources in my Sonos system: TV and Line-In (Port). I use the Port for my turntable; that’s it.
If I’m listening to anything other than the TV, I can tell my system “Alexa, switch the Arc to TV mode” and it immediately tunes to my TV audio (‘Arc’ is what I named my Arc in the Sonos app. Use your own speakers’ names when talking to Alexa).
Is there an Alexa command I can use to switch over to the Port? That would be my only personal use for Alexa/Port integration at the moment, but is anyone else using the integration in other ways? And is there a list of Alexa commands (including Port commands)?

To answer the question, the Arc can’t listen in to the port with an Alexa command.
You can only do it through the Sonos app by selecting the Port then group in the Arc.
Once the group is created, only then the Arc will listen-in to the Port as the audio source.
All of the available commands for Alexa to control Sonos is listed in the link.
If you have other concerns, feel free to reach out.
