Apple Music Available on Sonos Devices Starting December 15

As of December 15, Apple Music will be available on Sonos, allowing those who own Sonos speakers to use them with the Apple Music service for the first time since it launched in June. Sonos and Apple today announced a new Sonos Apple Music public beta that will go live to all Sonos users in approximately two weeks.

Sonos users will be able to access Apple Music on their Sonos speakers, streaming songs from For You, New, Radio, and My Music. The beta will allow users to access the Apple Music features through their dedicated Sonos apps on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and PC, with full support set to roll out in 2016.

"Many of our members love Sonos and want to enjoy our service throughout their homes," said Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. "We're thrilled to be working with Sonos to provide the Apple Music experience in even more places fans enjoy music."

Since Apple Music launched, Sonos has been working on support for the service, with a promise to have the feature ready to roll out by the end of the year. Beats Music, which did work with Sonos, is shutting down as of today. Sonos has recommended its users move their Beats Music accounts to Apple Music to save their playlists ahead of the rollout of the Apple Music for Sonos beta.

You can have everything with AirTunes or AirPlay - why use Sonos? Some day Sonos will go bankrupt and you will be left with a broken set of overpriced loudspeakers.
- Android support
- More stable in challenging wifi environments
- Excellent multi-room syncing.
- Some people find controlling all music sources from a single app to be preferable (admittedly, others see this constraint as a limitation)

I don't agree that the Play 1, 3, or 5 are overpriced.
The Connect is overpriced.

99% of the people who complain about or attempt to discredit Sonos have never used or lived with Sonos products.

I don't know, maybe because you don't want any interruptions while listening and enjoying music? Also, keep in mind that for Airplay to work, you NEED to have your phone in the network while playing music and you can't use it to listen/watch anything else on it.

My most common use case is that I set up a playlist on my iPad, then browse the net while the music plays. Airplay chokes and stutters when I load complex pages or sometimes even when I switch apps. Even leaving the iPad alone usually results in stuttering at some point or another. That never ever happens with my Sonos speakers.

At the risk of sounding like a complete cult member: only someone who's never used Sonos would ask this question.
