Sonos on Napster
Performance of the app labelled 'unacceptable', with customers given a month free alongside a promise of improvements

Sonos has apologised to customers using its Napster on Sonos application after several weeks of "unacceptable" performance.

In a letter to customers, Andrew Schulert, "Vice President, Quality" at Sonos, says the company was "unprepared for the dramatic increase in usage of Napster on Sonos".

The company is promising fundamental changes with long-term fixes that the company will aim to complete by the end of April.

In the meantime, all customers should have had their accounts credited with one month of service, while some immediate tweaks have been made in an effort to get Napster on Sonos running smoothly.
