This just might be a match made in heaven. Sonos announced today that its customers have yet another way to wirelessly listening to the music they love. Popular online music platform SoundCloud has formally joined Sonos as a music partner. This partnership gives Sonos users the ability to stream music from SoundCloud, the feature has gone live today in beta.
Sonos sells wireless speaker systems that come with a smart hub which allows users to beam their music to multiple speakers connected to the system.
Users will never face a shortage of music on SoundCloud given the fact that this service thrives on music submitted by its active community. Its one of the most online resources to listen to covers and remixes while it also includes tracks from some of the biggest bands and recording artists.
Sonos reveals in its official blogpost of this announcement that over 12 hours of music and audio are now uploaded to SoundCloud every minute, thus reaffirming my belief that users will never have to worry about running out of things to play.
Users can search on SoundCloud using the Universal Search option on the new Sonos controller application. Other supported services include Pandora, Spotify, Songza, iHeart and that user’s own music library.
