Sonos One alternate Alexa "wake word" change
I was going to buy a pair of Sonos ones when they first came out but the inability to change the "wake word" from Alexa was a deal breaker for me as I already have a multi-room Sonos/Echo/Alexa Home autmation setup in which I use the "wake word" "computer". Therefore any expansion to my existing setup has to also have the abilty to alter the "wake word" to "Computer" as with the Echo/Echo dot. Has this issue now been addressed? If not, can this issue please be addressed in a future update to allow the Alexa Wake word on the Sonos One's to be changed from "Alexa" to "Computer"?

I wish Amazon would pony up the cash to allow the Alexa voice to be switched to Majel Barrett - then I would have to change it.
I think Amazon are actually missing a trick with this one since it's showing their platform infrastructure to be lacking.
Voice AI has become a heavily competitive space, and Amazon need to be able to provide first class integration with their partners in order to maintain their head start.
Plus I have a friend named Alexa, so when she comes over, I have to call her "Sonos One"
Just got my Sonos One from Prime day.
Can’t believe this still isn’t fixed.
(Yes I mean fixed. This thing is broken without that basic functionality. Ok off to give my 3 star review on Amazon).
But I need a different wake word. I have a Alexander, so it confuses it sometimes.
Please fix this Sonos.
