What is "My Speaker" skill? Is it different to the Sonos skill?It is a third party skill to use with Sonos, which apparently allows Alexa control of the local library.

@controlav is its developer. He has been admirably careful not to over-plug it on this forum, IMO.
I sense sacrarsm. 😆

No. I think it is legitimate to mention it if it provides a possible solution to a specific query and that is all he has done.

There is also the option of using IFTTT and the trigger to play a favourite with either Alexa or Google Assistant.. The downside is that you would need to create a trigger for each playlist.

Thanks for your help on this. I have looked at My Speaker skill but it’s a little unclear whether you can access the files through the Bridge. I have raised this with the writer and await a reply. Once I hear back I will update this posts
thanks again
That's me 🙂 So long as Sonos has been configured to read your NAS, you should be fine.

And I might add, I don't know what you mean by 'access the files through the Bridge'. I am not sure it means anything. That may explain why it's not mentioned in connection with the My Speaker skill!

There are other 3rd party solutions too. Go to the Skills section of the Amazon store, search for Sonos, read the descriptions.

No, not currently. There is a solution using plex I believe, not never looked into it myself.
