Our Sonos One will not respond to our "Alexa" commands but I can still use the app to play my music through the various streaming services. Can someone provide assistance? Thanks.

Is the microphone on - button at top - light should be lit below the button.

Let us know how you get on. 🙂
I’m having the same problem. I call Alexa and it dings then does nothing. This happened a week or so ago originally then again since Monday.

Both apps are set up and it was working fine previously. Mic also on.

I’ve even got a response saying she couldn’t help me right now, try again later.

Any ideas? Anyone else experiencing this?

It appears to be enabled in both the Alexa app and the Sonos app. I am in the United States.

Have you gone into the Alexa app and enabled. Go into Sonos app ... settings...rooms. Chose the Sonos One Room - at top will say Alexa (alexa button for setup).

What country are you?
