Sonos One + 5 + Echo Dot = Amazon Echo Music Plan Ok?

I just bought and am setting up a Sonos system with two One units in the bedroom and one 5 unit in the living room. I bought an Echo dot to control the 5 in the living room. Can I subscribe to the Amazon Echo music plan (only for Echo streaming) for the Dot and then stream the audio to the bedroom and/or living room Sonos units, individually or as a group? Likewise, can the One be controlled by the Dot itself or only via the built in Alexa system?

I believe Amazon will only let you stream one at a time with the Echo music service. So if you have it streaming via voice control in one room you will get a message that there is already music playing in other room if you try to start a new stream in next room (although I have had it then actually play in both but I wouldn't rely on it doing so).

You can control the Play:5 from the Play One voice control and you can control the Play One also via voice control from the Dot.
