Apple Music gets Sonos support with beta release

Sonos has made good on its vow to offer support for Apple Music with the launch of a new public beta on Tuesday.

Through the Sonos app it will be possible to stream from the For You section, as well as New and My Music sections, which features saved and purchased music.

Users can sign up for the beta from within the Advance Settings section of the Sonos app for iOS and Android.

Sonos says the beta doesn’t offer everything, but it will bring more than enough for Apple Music users to get started.

Just know one thing – the beta isn’t the final product. But it’s a really good preview, with most of the features already in place,” the company said on its website.

“We’ll be making some small adjustments throughout the beta period, so be prepared for slight changes and improvements. We’d love your help to make this great, but if you’d rather wait until it’s completely finished, we’ll have the final version ready for you in early 2016.”

So what’s missing? Well right now users won’t be able to stream Beats 1 shows on demand or edit playlists.

Meanwhile, newly added music may take a full day to show up in the Sonos app.

The support is extended to Android users too, but they’ll need a device running Android 5.0 or above for the moment.

Apple Music now joins the likes of Spotify, Pandora, Tidal and Google Play Music, which already support Sonos.
