Sonos confirms Apple Music support from 15 December


Apple promised that its Apple Music streaming service would work with Sonos hi-fis by the end of 2015, and so it will – albeit in beta form.

“We are excited to tell you that Apple Music will be available on Sonos December 15th in beta. A beta is an early preview of the service, and an opportunity for people like you to help us shape the experience of listening to Apple Music on Sonos in your home,” wrote Sonos boss John MacFarlane in a blog post yesterday.

“Because it’s a preview, we know there are areas we’ll need to improve, and we’ll continue to do so throughout the beta.”

That beta will support Apple Music features including  For You, New, Radio and My Music, as well as up-to six-person family accounts.

The news came as Apple officially shut down Beats Music, its previous streaming service, with its subscribers being encouraged to sign up to Apple Music’s three-month free trial.
