Misfit is correct. When using the Sonos One (Gen1 or Gen2) with the Beam...Alexa in the Sonos One is disengaged. That is not the case when bonding the Sonos One to a Playbar or Playbase (Alexa remains active). For future reference as you expand with Sonos in your home the link has a chart comparing the Sonos ONE (Gen1/Gen2) and the Play:1. Enjoy your Sonos!
