Apple’s streaming music service will be available on Sonos’ streaming Wi-Fi speaker set-up by the end of the year.
Buzzfeed editor Jon Paczkowski received a message from Apple confirming the move and tweeted the news:

Sonos confirmed this to The Verge.
Sonos makes Wi-Fi streaming speakers that can play music stored on home computers and mobile devices, as well as streaming net-sourced content such as Deezer. It won’t have support for Apple Music at the launch of the service.

But Apple TV and Sonos users should be able to get Apple Music streamed to their TV through Apple TV, and then have the sound output through a Sonos Playbar and any other Sonos speakers grouped with it.
Apple Music will start on 30 June as a component of IOS 8.4 (available at 8am Pacific Time/4pm UK BST), priced at $9.99/month in the USA, £9.99/month in the UK. ®
