Today we are excited to share that Groove Music support for Sonos is now available! This means you can use Groove to listen to your favorite music on your Sonos speakers. Enjoying Groove Music on Sonos is easy. Get started by using your Groove Music Pass (free 30-day trial) or by accessing purchased music from the Windows Store or your own collection. Whether listening at your couch or your kitchen, and from to devices big and small, Groove and Sonos enable all your music to follow you everywhere.
Groove provides an improved experience for listening to and managing your music in Windows 10. Getting into music is faster than ever with easy-to-use menus and navigation controls that work well with both mouse/keyboard, and with familiar touch gestures on touch-screen devices. Having a Groove Music Pass gets you access to a premium ad-free listening experience with no interruptions and one of the largest music catalogs on the planet with over 40 million tracks*. You can also create custom radio stations based on your favorite songs, albums and artists and now play them all on your Sonos speakers! To play music from your own personal music collection on Sonos simply add your MP3s, even iTunes tracks, to the Music folder on your OneDrive. Then, select Groove from within the Sonos app to have all your music right at your fingertips. If you are Groove Music Pass subscriber you get 100GB of additional storage free on OneDrive to save all the music you love.
“With Groove, Microsoft gives you an easy way to access millions of tracks on demand alongside your personal collection,” said Sonos Chief Product Officer Marc Whitten. “We’re excited to welcome another great service for listening out loud at home on Sonos.”
Sonos is the smart speaker system that uses your WiFi to stream your favorite music throughout your home. Hear every detail, vividly and crystal clear like you’re in the recording studio or sitting in the front row. Sonos engineers work directly with industry-leading artists and producers to make sure you hear the truest possible reproduction of the music, as it was recorded.
The Sonos app lets you control every aspect of your listening experience. Find any song with one quick search, play different songs in different rooms, or group all speakers together to play one tune all over the house with rich, immersive sound. The Sonos app is available for PC, Mac, iOS and Android devices.
This great partnership between Groove and Sonos creates an awesome music experience for you in your home, and will only continue to get better over time through Sonos’ regular software updates. Additionally, Microsoft is continuing to listen to feedback from Groove customers and will add more functionality and features over time.
