Apple Music Arrives on Sonos Speakers Dec. 15.

When the public beta launches on Dec. 15, it will mark the first time Apple pairs with an outside hardware maker on deep integration of its music streaming service. Making good on a promise made back in June, Sonos said Monday that Apple’s new streaming music service will debut on its wireless speakers before the end of the year.

Everyone using a Sonos speaker will be able to take part in the beta program provided they subscribe to Apple Music (which offers three-month free trials). Listeners will have the ability to stream all their favorite aspects of Apple Music, including For You, New, Radio, and My Music, through Sonos smart speakers tuned for great sound in any or every room of their homes. “Streaming is bringing more music into everyone’s lives—and that’s a better life. Like any other Sonos-compatible music service—Spotify, Tidal, Pandora and Google Play, for instance—you send songs from Apple Music to one or more speakers using the Sonos app itself, on iOS, Android, Macs or PCs. Sonos will let people access Apple Music’s For You, My Music, New, and Radio — basically everything but “Connect,” a social feature intended to link artists with their fans. The focus is curated streaming, which Sonos co-founder and CEO John MacFarlane says drives most of the music listening that occurs on Sonos speakers these days. “Well over 90 percent of the music people listen to on Sonos speakers is from streaming services,” MacFarlane told BuzzFeed News. “We think Apple Music is going to be a catalyst that will raise that percentage even higher.

For Sonos, it is about delivering the music to the home listening experience as close as possible to the way the tracks sounded when they were mastered in the studio. “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.” Apple Music and Sonos are recruiting music lovers to help redefine how to fill homes with Apple Music on Sonos starting December 15. Apple Music isn’t even 6 months old yet, so this really did not take much time at all.” Sonos, which recently debuted a new flagship speaker — the PLAY:5, as well as a very slick speaker-tuning application called Trueplay, is the latest non-Apple platform to debut Apple Music in as many months.

Once a tech start-up populated with nerdy engineers and brilliant designers who love music, Sonos has grown into a global music brand dedicated to transforming the experience of listening out loud to music in the home. Sonos is doing it all over the world – in more than 60 countries, with dozens of streaming music providers, through thousands of retailers, and in millions of homes.
