I have an Amazon “Echo Flex” for Alexa. It has a silly tiny speaker and I’d like to connect it to my Sonos 5 so that whenever I ask Alexa something, it responds via the Sonos 5 speaker.
The Alexa app supports using WiFi Speakers for voice response output. However, for the Sonos 5, the option is greyed out. It says:
“Why can't I use my Preferred Speaker?
For a speaker to work with an Echo Inout, it must be able to play all audio. Your Preferred Speaker is only available to certain types of audio, like music and audiobooks.
To use a Preferred Speaker with Echo Input, select an Alexa device with a built-in speaker.”
Given that Amazon Alexa has been around for years, I thought that Sonos would have caught up? The Sonos 5 is such a great speaker. It seems a shame to have such small modern age issues.
