I’ve just inherited my late father’s old Sonos Zoneplayer S5.
I already have 2 Play 1s and a Play 3 on my system but note I have to use the old Sonos app to manage the Zoneplayer S5.
Are there any plans to update the new app to manage the Zoneplayer S5 at all?
Also is there any way to connect the Zoneplayer S5 to my Alexa system?

Welcome to the Sonos Community!
Alexa will work with a Play:5 gen 1, but please note that it will only work with one Sonos system - if you had both a S1 and a S2 system, you could only link one system to Alexa reliably. So yes, you can control a Play:5 with Alexa, but only if the Alexa account is not linked to another system.
If all the rooms across the two systems have unique names and are on the same Sonos account and local network, Alexa may work with both. As mentioned, it may not be reliable, however. You could use Alexa with one system and Google Assistant with another.
