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.
