Alexa on Sonos One in Switzerland

Hi All,

Has anyone been able to set up a Sonos One speaker and actually get the Alexa voice control options working.

Officially Alexa is not available in Switzerland but I have been able to download it onto my Iphone, IPad and Android using my UK Apple/Android ID together with my UK Amazon account but still not able to get into onto the Sonos One speaker!

Here`s hoping,

Jetboy707

Make sure your Sonos account is U.K. based too. Log in and change the country to U.K. if needs be. It works ok but no grouping control. Will only work with Sonos One, Beam and any other new Sonos models.

Hi,

yes works perfectly, but you need an account in the UK or Germany and also smartdns or a vpn. It works well, though I find Google Assistant more useful.

Have fun
Martin
