I frequently come home and a family member or nanny has started playing something wonderful on our echo, probably because it's easiest to say what to play and no one remembers to append, “in the <room name>" to have it play on our Sonos.
I would love to tell Alexa to transfer music or transfer “what's playing” to the <room name>, but that command doesn't seem to be understood.
Is there a way to transfer what's playing via the Alexa app or a different voice command?
Also, is there a way to set a default playback device other than the echo on an echo?

You will find a list of general music-related commands you can use with Alexa on Sonos right here. I don’t think there is such command to transfer music using Alexa on Sonos.
With Alexa's Preferred Speaker feature, you can put multiple Sonos products together in one Alexa Group, like “downstairs” or “outside,” then play music to all of them with a single voice command. You may also click here for more details on Alexa Group with Sonos speakers.
