Hi @Atwilliams 

Welcome to the Sonos Community!

I just tried this on my own system and got the same result - music plays, but doesn’t stop after the specified time. I have to assume, therefore, that there is nothing wrong with your system and that either we or Amazon need to fix something somewhere.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

I have a similar issue which happens randomly  and involves playing music among others for a specified time. Most of the time the routine keeps playing the music after the 15min.


Any thoughts?

Is this a bug?

Hi @03397 

This seems more to do with Amazon’s/Alexa’s implementation of our API than anything else - I recommend you report it to Amazon. We are of course working with them, but increased numbers of their customers reporting an issue will serve to prioritise it for them.
