I have deleted and redownloaded alexa and sonos app. To change this setting go to the alexa app and select devices.
You do not have to replace your play 1s with the sonos one in order to do so.
How do i get alexa to work on my sonos speaker. You just need the app. Choose the alexa enabled devices and sonos speakers you want to have in this group then tap save at the bottom. Sonos speakers appear under your connected devices with a house icon enclosing a wi fi icon.
Tap the group you just created and tap setup under preferred speaker. Tap the group that you want to edit and scroll. I have checked device is in alexa app.
Launch the alexa app on your iphone. Open the browse tab in the sonos app and press add amazon alexa if you can t see that option head to the more tab and press voice services then amazon alexa you ll then be asked to. Tap skills games.
After being redirected to the alexa app tap enable to use to sign in to your sonos account and enable the sonos skill. You don t need an echo or any other alexa supported speaker. I am having similar issues.
While owners of the one are handheld. I initially set up sonos 1 fine alexa worked. Open the sonos app for ios or android.
Set up alexa for sonos to use alexa on sonos you ll need the amazon alexa app. No extra sonos purchase necessary. I have re added the sonos one to my account i have checked the microphone at the top of the one.
Previously if you had say an echo dot in the kitchen along with a sonos five and you wanted to start the party you d have to say something like alexa play death cab for cutie in the kitchen you can now ditch that extra bit and simply say alexa play death cab for cutue with the output coming directly from the sonos speaker. If you have an amazon alexa device already in your home you can control all of your sonos speakers right now using it. From the settings tab tap services voice add a service amazon alexa add amazon alexa.
Moved to new room and not working. Tap the icon and then add group. Select a preset group name or create your own and tap next.
The cheapest alexa device is the echo dot 50 and if you own a sonos speaker adding one to enable full fledged voice control is almost a no brainer. When you ask alexa to play music it will automatically play on your preferred speaker. 2 discover devices in the alexa app.
I happen to have 2 dots and an echo that i use to control my older play 1s play 3s and a random play 5 gen 1. Here s how to see if they re connected. Tap the menu icon in the upper left corner.
