Sonos One seen as "Smart Home" device, not "Alexa enabled" device | Sonos Community
(On the limitations of Sonos’s Alexa implementation:)
“This limitation means you cannot use the Alexa simplified room lighting/device controls.

“For example, if within the Family Room you create an Alexa group consisting of the Alexa Echo physically in that room, along with the lights in that room, say ‘Couch Lamp’, ‘Ceiling Light’, and ‘Spot Light’, then when you are in that particular room and speak to the Alexa in that room, you can say ‘Alexa, Lights on’ instead of ‘Alexa, Family Room Lights On’, or worse, having to ask for each light individually, by name, to be turned on.

“This is particularly useful when you have multiple Alexa devices in multiple rooms. With the ‘smart grouping’, you can walk into any room and say ‘Alexa, lights on’ and the appropriate, pre-selected set of lights for that room, turns on without having to remember the unique names of the lights in that particular room.

“The problem is that with Sonos ONE not being recognized as an ‘Alexa-enabled device’ you cannot replace an existing Alexa with a Sonos ONE in a particular room and continue having the same capability. That sort of defeats the whole purpose of using a Sonos ONE as a ‘superset’ of a regular Alexa for voice commands but with much better sound. Now you have to give up existing convenience if you want better sound, you can’t have both.”
