Sonos One finally joins the Apple Music/Alexa club

While support for playing Apple Music songs via Alexa rolled out to Amazon Echoes last year, third party devices like the Sonos One were left out in the cold. Yes, you could play songs from Apple Music on those devices, but you couldn’t do so using Alexa—instead, you’d have to rely on the cumbersome Sonos app.

That has officially changed today with the latest update to the Sonos app and the Apple Music Alexa skill.

As someone who’s been holding onto a subscription to Amazon Music, it may be time to cancel now that I can get Apple Music on all of the speakers, computers, and mobile devices in my house.
