Apple Music Won’t Work With Your Sonos Speakers At Launch

Don’t expect to listen to Apple’s new music service through your Sonos speakers when it launches later this monthApple Music subscription speakers won’t work with internet-connected loudspeakers from Sonos at launch, confirmed a Sonos spokesperson Monday afternoon.

Asked about any partnership with Apple, Sonos’ spokesperson sent the following statement:

“Sonos will not have Apple Music on it at launch but we fully expect to support them when they’re ready to focus on the home listening experience. Right now they’re fully focused on mobile .”

Sonos has been supporting Beats Music’s subscription service, which Apple bought as part of its Beats Electronics acquisition a year ago. However, Beats is expected to shut down following the launch of Apple Music, with Apple automatically transferring Beats Music playlists and other user data to its new service.

Apple executives made no mention of Sonos or any other connected audio platform during the keynote announcement of Apple Music, but the new service will support AirPlay-certified speakers as well as beaming music to Apple TV.
