Just before Apple Music’s launch on June 30 last year, MBW noted that the platform’s lack of compatibility with Sonos was one of the things it really needed to fix about its offering.
Today, that request is granted.
Apple Music will be available on Sonos systems worldwide starting today (Wednesday, Feb. 10).
Apple Music on Sonos was apparently tested by hundreds of thousands of listeners through a successful beta program that started in early December.
To stream Apple Music on Sonos, customers simply select “Add Music Services” from any Sonos controller app, scroll down to the Apple Music icon, and login.
“The feedback from Apple Music members on Sonos during the beta period has been great,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services.
“Sonos plus Apple Music provides an amazing listening experience at home – and we’re excited to offer it to all Sonos customers starting tomorrow.”
“This partnership has been an excellent example of two companies that truly care about music coming together to deliver a great listening experience,” said John MacFarlane, Sonos chief executive officer.
“Working with Apple gives us the opportunity to share Apple Music throughout people’s homes in a way that’s easy, intuitive, and sounds great.”
A Sonos station on Apple Music, curated by artists in collaboration with Sonos, is also launching today.Music Business Worldwide
