Sonos Adds SoundCloud to Music Services   sonos 500x234

If you have a Sonos system, you have access to a wide selection of music streaming services. Unfortunately, the truth is that many of those services offer experiences too similar to really set them apart, so having access to so many really isn’t that much of a benefit. How many services do you really need to stream popular music? I manage to rock out to Katy Perry just fine on Spotify.

SoundCloud, however, gives you access to brand-spanking-new artists that you may not be able to find anywhere else – and SoundCloud is now available on Sonos. There are 12 hours of music and audio uploaded to SoundCloud’s platform every minute, which is absolutely staggering. Keep in mind that there’s no guarantee of quality on the 17,280 hours of stuff uploaded everyday, but with that much music, you’re sure to find something you like. You’ll never be at a loss for content.

The SoundCloud service is in beta on Sonos right now and you can access it by going to “Add Music Services” in the Sonos app. If you’re one of those people who likes to wade through indie content to find the diamonds in the rough, you’re going to have a heck of a time.
