Apple has made the confirmation that it is working with Sonos to make the music streaming service available for users on the connected speaker system by the end of 2015.

The announcement was made by Ian Rogers, the senior director of Apple Music and the ex-CEO of Beats Music, through a Twitter post.

According to Rogers, the integration of Apple Music into Sonos will be coming as soon as possible, but it will not be available upon the launch of the music streaming service.

Beats Music had native support on Sonos devices, but there has been no official partnership announced between Apple Music and the popular Internet-capable speaker systems so far. Beats Music users will be disappointed that Apple Music will not be available right away on their Sonos devices.

"Sonos will not have Apple Music on it at launch but we fully expect to support them when they're ready to focus on the home listening experience. Right now they're fully focused on mobile," said a representative of Sonos early in the month, highlighting Apple's priorities on which devices to roll out Apple Music on first.

Tom Neumayr, a spokesman for Apple, confirmed the development of Apple Music for Sonos devices in a statement to BuzzFeed News.

"We're already working together to make Apple Music available on Sonos before the end of the year," Neumayr said.

While Sonos users wait for their devices to officially support Apple Music, there is a workaround for the music streaming service to be projected onto their speakers. The workaround will involve an Apple TV or Airport Express connected to the Internet to be able to project the streaming music from their iPhone, iPad or Mac onto a Sonos speaker.

Apple Music can also be streamed through normal Bluetooth protocols and projected on wireless speakers.

Apple Music will launch on June 30 at 8AM PT.

Despite the music streaming service not yet launching, it has already seen controversy with Taylor Swift criticizing Apple's refusal to pay royalties to artists whose music would be streamed within Apple Music over the initial trial period of three months. Swift claimed that struggling producers and musicians would badly need such royalty payments.

Apple almost instantly gave in to Swift's demands, leading to theories that the whole scenario was a ploy to increase publicity for Apple Music.
