Sonos has announced that Spotify is now available in the U.S. for streaming, wirelessly, via the Sonos Multi-Room Music System.
With a Premium Spotify account, Sonos customers can enjoy on-demand access to Spotify’s library of more than 13 million songs. To learn more about how Spotify works on Sonos, visit sonos.com/Spotify.
According to Sonos customer research, once a Sonos customer starts using a streaming music service, they listen to 5 times as much music in the home than they did with just their existing digital music library.
“The Spotify and Sonos partnership has been warmly received by music fans throughout Europe,” said John MacFarlane, founder and CEO Sonos. “We are thrilled to work with Spotify to bring this ultimate music experience to Sonos fans in the U.S. while continuing our mission of connecting customers to all the music on earth.”
“We are very excited to be bringing Spotify to the U.S., and to be working with partners such as Sonos towards our goal of making the all the world’s music available for everyone to enjoy, whenever they want it and wherever they are,” said Ken Parks, chief content officer and managing director, Spotify, North America.
Existing Sonos customers can add the Spotify service by subscribing online to Spotify Premium and then simply adding Spotify from the “More Music” menu of any controller.
For music fans new to Spotify and Sonos, all that is needed is a Sonos player, such as the Sonos S5 all-in-one wireless music system, a Sonos Controller such as the free Sonos Controller for Android, iPhone, or iPad, and a Spotify Premium account ($9.99 a month).
