Echo Show should display now playing screen when SONOS speaker is playing music

It would be great if using groups we could link SONOS speaker with an Echo Show thus allowing the currently playing song on the SONOS to show up on the Echo Show now playing screen. Right now even if you initiate playback via Alexa on your SONOS speaker it does not display this screen.

As it is now you have to choose between getting currently playing information and the inferior speakers of the Echo Show or playing with the high fidelity SONOS speaker.

It is especially useful when you are hosting a party and someone is curious about what song is playing they can just look at the Echo Show and see what it is.

I agree, this feature would be very useful.

This was the sole reason I sold my HomePod and got a Sonos. I was really hoping to be able to display what's playing on my Alexa for parties while streaming to Sonos. That way people could see the song and artist vs asking "Who's this playing". Would really add so much value to my Echo Show.
