I am loving using the new Sonos Voice Control version 1.1 features particularly when a song is playing on a live radio Stream such as Apple Music 1 and you can say something like : “Hey Sonos, play a station by this artist” or “Hey Sonos, play a playlist by this artist.” You can also say, “Hey Sonos, play more songs by this band/artist.”
I notice that using Sonos Voice Control if a song is playing you can say “play more like this” and it will play one or two further similar songs - perhaps a feature which will be further developed later on - as I would like the stream to play more than one or two similar songs.
I also see the ability in the Sonos App to start a station manually based on/from an individually selected a song. I would love this feature to be available using voice commands - just like the functionality of the HomePod mini - as I am contemplating whether to buy one of these to get this feature or upgrade my audio to stereo audio with an Era 100 - which I tried in a local tech showroom and I must say sounds wonderful. At the moment, I am using a Sonos One (Gen One).

@deano1x, thank you for the kind words and feedback.
I’ve marked this thread as a feature request and forwarded it to the appropriate teams for consideration.
Further to your response, I have made an important discovery - using Alexa on Sonos - which might be a solution to this feature suggestion.
Thanks for giving a LIKE to my latest follow up post.
The only thing I would say to add though —— is I would still like Sonos to work on this feature for their own voice assistant - as I expect Amazon Music is advertisement supported —- so it would be nice to use “Hey Sonos” commands to create stations based on a song —- as I currently only pay to subscribe to Apple Music as a music streaming service.
