Not sure if you mean Audio output or Voice Control?

If you mean grouping of Sonos and Echo devices then No this isn't possible currently. You can connect an Echo device to Audio In connection on a Connect or Play:5. If you mean using an Echo device to control Audio output to a Sonos device then Yes, this is possible, just include the room name in the command. e.g. 'Alexa, Play music on Kitchen Sonos'
If you say “Alexa play this music in living room” (or whatever room) it seems to transfer the stream from echo to Sonos. Not sure how then to change the volume on the Sonos speaker through Alexa - any idea?
Alexa, turn it up/down in the (room name)
Alexa, louder/quieter in the (room name)
Alexa, set the volume to 3 (30%) in the (room name) [0-10 volume levels]
Alexa, softer in the (room name)
Alexa, mute the (room name)
Alexa, unmute the (room name)
