Just setting up my new Sonos Roam that I bought for my daughter. I had wanted it so the she could play her music in her room in the evening without having to have her tablet. 

In trying to get it to work I find that it is extremely poor at finding any specific piece of music. 

It does not connect to Sonos playlists so cannot ask for a specific playlist. 

It does not connect to Spotify - which is probably about the most popular music service known to man or woman.

It connects to Amazon Music - but cannot find “The Nutcracker” even though there are several albums of this name if I search for it.

I say “Hey Sonos play radio four”. I get Dua Lipa - Hit List on Sonos Radio. 

I say “Hey Sonos play the song Borderline” - “Sorry I can’t find the song Borderline”.

I say “Hey Sonos play the song Hotel California” - “Sorry I can’t find the song Hotel California”.

Having tried several songs I have yet to find one that it can find.

I would not recommend this to anybody in its current state.

Do you have Amazon Music Unlimited? Recent changes have crippled the not-Unlimited options.
