Sonos: Apple Music is in the house and your life is better for it
Apple Music is now available on Sonos systems. Music fans and Sonos customers worldwide will have access to Apple Music features like For You, New, Radio and, My Music, and will also be able to stream the entire Apple Music catalog through Sonos smart speakers.
Apple Music on Sonos was tested by hundreds of thousands of listeners through its beta program that began in early December.
"The feedback from Apple Music members on Sonos during the beta period has been great," Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, said in a statement.
Sonos launched a study in January of this year, conducting a 30,000-person survey and watching 30 families around the globe as the amount of music in their homes increased over a period of weeks.
According to the data, families who listened to music regularly spent 67% more time together and ate an average of one meal more together than they did before.
"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," John MacFarlane, Sonos chief executive officer, said in a statement.
"This partnership has been an excellent example of two companies that truly care about music coming together to deliver a great listening experience,"
To stream Apple Music on Sonos, customers select "Add Music Services" from any Sonos controller app, scroll down to the Apple Music icon, and login.
New users can sign up for a free, three-month trail membership of Apple Music.
