Apple Music could be the best music service for mobile devices ever created if it lives up to the hype Eddy Cue danced into it during today’s keynote, but it won’t play nice with Internet connected speaker systems like Sonos.
Sonos speaker lovers won’t be able to jam out on their favorite tunes through Apple Music, the company revealed in a statement today. While Sonos has been a supporter of Beats Music since 2014, the company confirmed says Apple’s not ready to focus on home listening yet:
“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,” a Sonos spokesperson told Variety. Right now they’re fully focused on mobile .”
You’ll still be able to listen to Beats Music on Sonos speakers, however, Beats is expected to shut down shortly after the launch of Apple Music. Playlists and other data will be transferred automatically to your new Apple Music account, but that Sonos capability won’t.
Apple Music launches on June 30th with subscriptions starting at $10 per month, or $15 per month on the Family plan that includes six connections. Even though Sonos speakers aren’t supported you’ll still be able to wireless stream music to AirPlay-certified speakers.
