No Google assistant voice on surrounds w/Arc

My two One’s (gen2) when added as surrounds to my Arc do not output audio from Google Assistant.   All responses are played only on the Arc. Is this expected?  
During setup, a message appeared saying the Mic would be disabled on the One’s, which was  disappointing but I thought I’d at least get audio out of them.

Yes, this is expected functionality.   Alexa and GA will only come from one speaker at a time, even when setup as a stereo pair or home theater.  If you request music through Alexa or GA, that will come from the speakers you’ve set to play music.
