With the launch, Sonos wireless multizone-audio systems access all Apple Music features, including For You, Radio, and My Music. The For You feature recommends curated playlists for a user based on staff selection and an algorithm. My Music shows purchased songs available for streaming. Radio includes stations that play genre-specific or artist-related music.
The Sonos station on Apple Music is curated by artists in collaboration with Sonos.
