For me there are two shortcomings that Apple Music integration has within Sonos: the inability to add tracks to an Apple Music playlist and the lack of the ‘Top Songs’ list that each artist has within Apple Music itself, but not via Sonos. Both have been discussed in other threads, with the answer that they’re basically feature requests, so record them as such.
As far as I remember, both these functions are available through the Spotify integration, meaning it’s basically Apple not making full use of Sonos’s API. Even if that puts the ball in Apple’s court, I’d like to know:
- Does Sonos regularly discuss feature requests such as this with their service providers? Or do they leave them to it to implement features and fixes as they see fit?
- Do Sonos have any influence at all over the process eg. Can they make suggestions as to what to prioritise based on user requests?
- Has the Apple Music service been updated at all since its introduction? Are there changelogs?
- Is Sonos made aware of changes that its service providers are planning, and are there known to be any in the pipeline for Apple Music?
Thanks in advance for any light you can shed...
