In case you aren’t aware, Sonos is a wireless Hi-Fi system for users to be able to listen to all of their music on high quality, wireless speakers. Through the Sonos application, you can link certain music accounts like Pandora, Deezer, and TuneIn Radio to be able to play through your Sonos system.
Today, Sonos has announced that they are adding the ability to play Spotify through your Sonos Hi-Fi system. This is one of the biggest additions to the Sonos lineup due to how many consumers have been clamoring for this ability.
Spotify users have long asked for Spotify Radio to be integrated so that they can listen to it throughout their homes. We are pleased to say that starting today its integration has been placed into the current beta program. Spotify subscribers in beta can now start a radio station from any artist or track or play any Sonos favorited radio station in every room of their home. We’ve also worked closely with the Spotify team to make playback even more stable especially during peak usage times.
Now, if you are already using the Sonos application, you won’t see an update pop up. However, if you are willing to try out the public beta of the app, head to the link here, and sign up to test it out. Sonos hopes to get all the rest of the bugs and kinks worked out, so that they can release the official build of the Controller App “in the coming weeks.”
Are you a Sonos user? Let us know what you think about the added ability to stream Spotify to your Sonos Hi-Fi system.
This article is incorrect. Sonos has had the ability to stream Spotify for years. This new announcement is related to Spotify Radio, which is a feature that can create a new custom radio station from any song. This feature is fantastic for music discovery and is a way many users listen to Spotify on their desktop/mobile devices. This gap has been the most sought after feature on the Sonos forums for years. Also extremely popular topic on the Spotify forums. I’m still in shock that this level of connectivity is occurring because relationships between Sonos and Spotify has appeared to have cooled off with Spotify introducing the “Works with Spotify” program that allows traditional speaker manufacturers to compete with Sonos–who is said to eclipse 1Bn in revenue this year.
Ps. Not a company affiliate, just an extremely happy Sonos (and Spotify) user.
