Wish to set up AirPlay 2 on your Sonos speakers? Refer this quick guide to update your Sonos device for AirPlay 2 to stream music wirelessly from  Apple Music or YouTube to the speaker!

As expected, Sonos has added AirPlay 2 support to its latest speakers. That means you can now wirelessly stream Apple Music from your iOS device to your compatible Sonos speakers. To get going, you need first set up AirPlay 2 on your supported speakers.

Currently, only Sonos One, Play 5, Playbase, and the new Sonos Beam work with Apple’s wireless streaming service. One notable thing worth mentioning up front is that if you have one supported device, you can group it with the non-supported one to take the full advantage of the wireless streaming feature to stream music to multiple devices.
