Here's what's happening:
Echo Dot will accept commands to play named songs, bands, albums, or playlists from Amazon music OR Spotify music on my Sonos Connect.
Echo Dot will accept commands to play "music" on my Play3 and Play:1 but will NOT accept commands to play named songs, bands, albums or playlists on either one of them. This is true whether I have Spotify set as default music service or Amazon music set as default music service.
Example: If I say, "Alexa, play [bandname] on [Play:1], it will act as if I said "Alexa, play [bandname]" and just play on the dot. (yuck). But if I say, "Alexa, play music on [Play:1]", it will play an amazon music playlist that it picked for me on the sonos speaker.
Why can Spotify play on Sonos Connect but not elsewhere? Why will Alexa play random music on the Play1 and 3 but not specific music?
Music plays fine on all 3 speakers through the Sonos app and through the Spotify app.
I have tried other basic troubleshooting but definitely feel as if i've managed to get my wires crossed somehow.
Thanks for any advice!
