I have a very specific question. I just spent twenty minutes on the phone with Sonos support, and I was rather disappointed with their understanding of what their systems can do . . .
I have a Soundbar, Sub, and two Play 1’s for my Living Room 5.1 system.
I have slowly started to integrate my Alexa system with Sonos. If I talk to Alexa right now, I have no problem commanding Alexa to play music in my living room from my Alexa Echo Show 8 through Sonos. This works great.
Now, I want to “play music everywhere,” meaning I want to play music in the other rooms that have Alexa echos or dots by creating groups AND the Sonos system . . . The problem is, I have found NO WAY to do this. I can EITHER command Alexa to “play everywhere,” (which plays through all of my Alexa components,) OR I can command Alexa to play in the Living Room which plays through the Sonos system in the Living Room.
The weird thing is if I command to “play everywhere,” the Alexa Echo Show 8 (which is the controller in the living room,) plays music through itself, NOT the Sonos . . .
Any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated especially form truly savvy Alexa owners.
Thank you for your time . . .
