Following its public beta last December, Sonos has announced that it will officially add support for Apple Music to its connected speaker lineup tomorrow, February 10th.
“We’re big fans of Sonos,” Apple senior vice president of internet software and services Eddy Cue said to BuzzFeed. “We’ve been looking forward to this.” When asked why Sonos didn’t support Apple Music from the start, especially considering it supported Beats Music, Cue explained that it took some time to get it right. “It’s important to get the integration right the first time out,” Cue said. “Apple has a high bar for this stuff; So does Sonos. Apple Music isn’t even 6 months old yet, so this really did not take much time at all.”
The Sonos Controller app features your Apple Music, complete with categories such as For You, New, Radio, and My Music, just like in iTunes or the iOS Music app. The app even supports streaming Apple’s Beats 1 station, as well as other featured stations or stations you create.
Songs offers a range of connected speakers ranging from $199 to $500. The company also presently supports Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Prime Music and other services.
