Apple Music Finally Comes to Sonos!

They said it would be done by the end of the year, and they got it done with a month to spare.

According to Yahoo, Apple Music is now able as a music service on the Sonos platform!

This is great news for the AAAD household.

Frankly, I can't wait to get home from the office, sign up for Apple Music, and try it out.

For now, it's a public beta. You have to sign up, and you can do so right here.

It will go live on 12/15, however, so if you don't want to run beta software, you have the option of just waiting an extra 12 days.

UPDATE/EDIT - The public beta goes live on 12/15. It's assumed that Apple Music will go live on Sonos for "real" in early January.

To sign up for the beta, go to the Sonos app on your phone. Click "Settings", then "Advanced Settings", then "Join Beta". This will include you in future beta releases. 

We're paid up with Spotify until the end of the year, so we'll have a 1-month MUSIC SERVICE FACEOFF in which both services will be fighting for our affections.

But really, I have to imagine that we're going to be moving to Apple Music.

The idea that we'll be able to play our music with Siri (in theory, anyway) is simply too much to pass up.

For now, however, I plan on being the last "Apple Early Adopter" in the world to sign up for Apple Music's 90-day free trial.

And just to show our appreciation, I'll be adding another Sonos device to the mix!
