So here is my situation. I currently own two Play:1s and a HomePod. We're an Apple ecosystem family so I would like to get them all synced up so that when I ask the HomePod to play something via Apple Music, it will also do it simultaneously via the two Play:1s. While I know that the two Sonos speakers are not Airplay 2 compatible, initially I thought that the Beam could be the bridge to accomplish this. However, a friend of mine told me that it cannot be done.
Could someone please let me know if that is actually the case?
Again, thanks for your help!

- group your play:1s with the beam using the Sonos app.
- using airplay 2 (I believe it needs to be done through your phone or tablet) stream to both the beam and the homepod at the same time.
You can do the steps in any order really. Everything should play in sync, but syncing between different brand systems is difficult, so it may not be a satisfactory sync. Also, you're streaming through your phone, and then to the speakers. If you remove the phone from the network, you'll lose the stream.
