Anyone else noticed that Alexa on the Sonos One responds to Blake’s 7 as well as Alexa? Very cool.....

,,, but rather adolescent. Wouldn't 'Sonos' have been more appropriate ?
Agreed.... or even just have basic Alexa functionality working
Blakes 7 has basically very similar phenomes as Alexa, so it's Amazon's error.
Does not do it on Dot?
I've not tried it yet, and my wake word is Echo. When I get home tonight, I'll switch it back to Alexa, and test for you 🙂

'Blakes 7' on Dot - silence ....

Just what did the beta testers actually test over all those months?
Blake’s who? Must be a British thing. 🙂
Yea, it is, apparently. I had to look it up. Wonder if it's also reacting to a British accent when saying the word. My poor ability to do anything other than my standard middle American English will probably make it difficult for me to reproduce at home.

... in a British accent
Laugh. Thanks, castalla.
Couldn't get it to trigger on Blakes 7, but it did trigger to the word "potato", while it was set to trigger to "echo". Tried it 3 times, using the DVR. Triggered all 3 times. I hold Amazon responsible for this, not Sonos.
