Sonos One with Alexa Routines (Automatic Blinds Specifically)

Sorry if this has been covered endlessly. 

Im completely new to Sonos, been rejecting it for years but finally bit the bullet when I saw the Play Ones with Alexa, assuming my music will sound a bit better than my Alexa Echo’s -


THEN, I read that “Alexa Routines are not supported” now wtf?! - considering cancelling my order - but I thought I’d ask here - the 1 automation I need is my automatic blinds. (alexa open upstairs blinds, close upstairs blinds etc) Will this really not work with the Sonos One? that cant be??

The various threads do make support for routines a bit complicated.  I can run all my Alexa Routines from my Sonos devices that work on any other Alexa Device with ONE exception: If I try and output an audio message within the Routine, (other than music) I get an error message.
