*“Update Now” prompt may take up to 15 minutes to appear. Tap “Online Updates” in the Settings menu to update immediately.
Sonos users can stream songs from For You, New, Radio and My Music through Sonos apps on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac and Windows PC. The beta will be limited in some areas compared to the final version slated for release in early 2016.

Example: I bought Adele's "25" last week. Ripped, imported to Apple Music. Now I can listen to it anywhere, anytime, on any device. And it shows up just like if it was added from Apple's music cloud. Same with The Beatles or any other artist that isn't on AM.
That's why I use Apple Music and not Spotify. Spotify is for the folks who base their listening off playlists, and little else.
I have tried for three months to understand it, but failed to get offline playlists etc to work as nice as it does on Spotify.
