So on Dec 17th Apple Music will be available on Amazon Echo devices.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/columnist/baig/2018/11/30/alexa-welcomes-apple-music-amazon-echo/2151574002/

The question is; does this make Apple Music immediately available to those of us who use an Echo connected to Sonos. On Dec 17th will I be able to ask my Echo to play apple music on my Sonos ? Or will Sonos also need to "do something" to make this work ?

I am in the UK - my Alexa app (which was updated last week in the iOS App Store) does not offer Apple Music as a Music Service.
Has anyone, based in the UK, seen Apple Music on the Alexa app or are they rolling it out gradually or not at all in the UK?
Apparently Apple Music through Alexa is not available in Europe yet.

Doesn’t really matter if it’s not Sonos compatible anyway.
Apple Music through Alexa is only available in the US, for now at least.


Apple Music for Alexa is available only in the United States.

Alexa will work with Apple Music on third-party devices 'soon'

Good news.

If Sonos is true to form, the first "news" you will hear from them will be an announcement that it has been released.

Excellent. Adds absolutely nothing to what I already know and had already done. I’m not asking google I’m asking Sonos! But thanks for that.
