According to Amazon that's the case.
So i did a chat with Amazon support since the Sonos One is not finding my Phillips Hue lights (which work fine with the Dot)...
Can someone from Sonos weigh in on this? If i can't entirely replace my Dot with the Sonos One then it's going to get sent back.
Quite simply my Sonos One doesn't find my hue lights, but if i plug the Dot back in it disovers them fine, and they can be controlled via the One. If i unplug the Dot the lights become unreachable. All other smart home devices are ok.
I don't want to make this post too wordy, but i've done all the troubleshooting i can think of, inculding removing and re-adding voice services which i saw in another post. I have removed the Dot from my Alexa account, leaving just the One, still no joy.
My lights are using the v1 Hue Bridge in case that matters
Sonos One doesn't work with Hue?

Problem was: Alexa App/Sonos One couldn't dicover my Hue Bridge V2 (which I actually only bought because I thought the V1 one was the problem in the first place).
Strange was: Bridge and bulbs worked fine with the Hue App on iOS as well as with Siri/Homekit.
After trying out every suggestion I found on the internet, updating every imaginable piece of firmware (router, bulbs, you name it ...), messing around with port forwarding and deleting/delinking/reinstalling/reconnecting almost every app and skill involved I almost gave up.
Although the bridge was working fine with the Hue App and also showed up as connected in my account on the Hue website I somehow decided to delete it. After reconnecting the bridge with my account there is way more Information about my bridge available on the website AND it was discovered by the Alexa App in an instant!
Glad if this helps anyone else.
If your frustrated call Sonos support as they will still help you.
Go to philips website https://www.philips.co.uk/c-m-li/hue
Make sure you have an account setup and that you've confirmed the email address.
As I had an old bridge, I deactivated it and then added my new bridge. Maybe do this anyway, even if you don't have a new bridge.
Alexa then discovered my lights instantly.
