Hi

I don’t believe so - I already had Echos though so no actual proof from my installation.

And how do i change the destinations on my new Sonos so it do'set give me the weather in Philadelphia, when i live in the UK


That would be in the Alexa App you need to change the location to your UK address.
Amazon Alexa app -> menu -> settings, then select each Alexa device to set their device location. You can use your UK postcode.

You don't need an external Echo device, though certain Alexa functionality doesnt work on the Sonos One at launch. You need to setup with Sonos and Alexa apps.
Hi
Thanks guys

However. When I use the Alexa App to set-up i can only set up Amazons own devices. And since I don't have one it would allow me any further and than the first stages.
How do i get around that?
Is it definitely a Sonos One you have, not a Play 1? If it is, then you should set it up first with the Sonos app, this should walk you through the setup and tell you when to load up the Alexa app to set up the Alexa "smart" functionality.
One step is to add the Sonos skill on your Alexa app, make sure you have done this as well.
Hi
It is definitely a ONE.
It sorted it all thanks to you help.

Thank you all

Main also doesnt work it only shows me amazon devices.... what should i do?
I love Sonos for the simplicity, it just works. Unfortunately thats not the case for Sonos One, it’s rubbish, impossible to set Alexa up!
