Does smart play 1 speakers start music in my new playbar?
Ive just bought a new Playbar and looking to buy 2x smart play 1 speakers secondhand. Once connected, will the smart play 1 speakers also play music from the playbar as well as the play 1 speakers?

Ok, so it sounds that by ‘smart play:1’s, you mean Sonos One (with microphone included). That is a different product that Play:1. But to answer your question, yes, the mics on Sonos Ones can be turned on and a request to play music will play on the playbar and Sonos Ones.
To be clear though, even though the playbar doesn’t have a built in mic, you can still tell Alexa (through a Sonos One, echo, or any Alexa enabled device) to play music on your playbar. So for example, instead of buying the 2 Sonos Ones, you can buy an echo dot. Link Alexa and Sonos together, setup an Alexa group so that the Dot knows to automatically play music requests on your playbar, and yoru done. Not saying that the Sonos Ones are a bad idea, just that if your only goal is to voice control the playbar, then there are cheaper ways to do it.
