A missing element is being added by element to the streaming music service and with this, tunes can be sent by listeners from Apple Music to Wi-Fi enabled speakers that were made by Sonos.
Both the companies say that the subscribers of Apple Music owning these Sonos Sound systems can play a beta version of Apple Music from 15th of December through the Sonos Apple. The release of the final version would be seen next year. People owning these systems can stream music from paid and free services, including Google Play, Spotify and Pandora. Until now, music could be Streamed from Beats Music too which was acquired by Apple and now shut down. The availability of this subscription based Music wasn’t seen for Sonos Listeners when its launch was seen 1st in summer.
The availability of home-streaming is not seen soon because time is needed by both companies for making the features of Apple Music compatible with the app and Sonos System, said Eddy Cue, the Senior Vice President of Apple. He told Associated Press that wished to give a complete experience to the customers. Apple Inc. stated that last month 6.5 million paid subscribers were signed up. Earlier this month, the services were expanded by Apple and an Android version was offered. Cue stated that an update on the number of subscribers wouldn’t be released until after the holidays.
John MacFarlance, the CEO of Sonos acknowledged that some recording companies and artists still debate on the notion to stream music as opposed to selling of digital copies. He cited the decision of Adele, the pop singer for withholding the latest album from streaming music. He also made a prediction that through the clout and size, broader acceptance would be there for this model.
