Apple Music is coming to Sonos after all: The music service will go live on Sonos speakers before the end of the year, a Sonos spokesperson confirmed Sunday. The confirmation came after Apple Music senior director Ian Rogers said on Twitter that the service will add Sonos support as soon as possible:
Sonos had previously confirmed that Apple Music wouldn’t be available on its speakers at launch.
Getting onto Internet-connected loudspeakers like the ones made by Sonos could be crucial for Apple Music: More than half of all music listening happens in the home, according to a recent study. Beats Music had been working on its own Internet-connected loudspeaker before the company was acquired by Apple, and originally planned to introduce it in time for last year’s holiday season — but the project got nixed following the acquisition.
