Apple has confirmed the date when its Beats Music streaming service will shut down: 30 November.

The company has sent an email out to the remaining Beats Music subscribers encouraging them to switch to Apple Music – and addressing one of the main reasons many of them have stuck with the existing service until now.

“Move your playlists and preferences to Apple Music, coming soon to Sonos,” explained the email. “Beats Music is ending all service on November 30, but don’t worry – Apple Music is coming soon to Sonos. By moving your Beats Music account to Apple Music, you’ll be able to keep your playlists and preferences and listen on Sonos as soon as it is available. Keep an eye out for your invitation with all of the details.”

When Apple Music launched, Sonos support was one of two promises that Apple made for 2015 – the other was an Android version, which arrived this week.
