Two methods to play Apple Music on Sonos One

follow

Sonos is founded as an American consumer electronics company in 2002 by John MacFarlane, Craig Shelburne, Tom Cullen and Trung Mai, based in Santa Barbara, California. Sonos is widely known for the smart speakers, which are designed to fill every room of your home with music, and the flexibility and functionality of its products has made the company a household name.

And now the company has partnered with iHeartRadio, Spotify, MOG, QQ Music, and Amazon Music adding to their catalog of services. They are also partnering with Amazon to enable Alexa to control Sonos speakers, intending to eventually work with every voice assistant on the market. Google Assistant will also be supported by Sonos in 2018.

Sonos One is the first Alexa-enabled speaker by the high-end home speaker company. Unlike the HomePod, the Sonos One doesn't support queries via Siri, nor does it work with HomeKit. Instead, it offers an integrated microphone array that supports Amazon's Alexa assistant — which conveniently can also control most home automation devices and take a number of spoken queries.

As we all know that you can play Apple Music playlist with Alexa directly, because of DRM and Apple has no Music skill built into the Alexa app.

Don't worry, the Sonos app does offer support for both Spotify and Apple Music and you can queue up any song or playlist from either service in the app and play it on your Sonos One. Just follow the next guide.

Method 1: play Apple Music on your Sonos One with Airplay 2

1. Open the Sonos app.

2. Tap the Browse button.

3. Choose your music service.
