Your music service may only allow a single Alexa stream. I know Amazon does this, if you start a stream via Alexa in one room, and then use Alexa to start in another room, the first stream is halted. This is different from the Sonos app, which lets you have multiple streams to multiple rooms.

I addition to the jgatie's feedback this will also occur with Spotify unless you group the Rooms within the App.

Deezer seems to allow multiple streams via Alexa at the same time. I can play 4 different tracks in my 4 Sonos rooms, all initiated via Alexa on my Sonos One. I have a standard single user account, not a family account. It even allows me to stream on the iOS app without it interrupting the Sonos tracks.
