Hi there, please can anyone help, it’s probably very basic for some but would really help me out. I have three Sonos speakers around the house, one being the Sonos play 5 (gen 2) in the living room, I have connnected my new Dot (gen 2) via the line in function. With the new beta release from sonos can I now use my dot to play through my sonos speakers using Wi-fi and not the line in? Secondly I have been subscribed to deezer ever since I bought my sonos speakers, can I control deezer (or access this) through my dot? Any replies or help,is appreciated. Thank you.

Without the line-in you can tell Echo to play music on the Sonos, you can't pair them so all sounds from the Echo goes through Sonos if that's what you're after

Nope

For Deezer, you cannot initialize play using Alexa, but once you start a queue using the Sonos app, you can stop, play, skip, previous, control volume, or ask what is playing via Alexa.
