"Spotify on Sonos provides music lovers with an extraordinary music experience for any room in the home," says Sonos CEO John MacFarlane.

Fancy listening to your choice of over eight million songs, in any room in your house, wirelessly? Of course you do. And from the end of September, you can – provided you're a Sonos owner and a Spotify Premium subscriber.
The free Sonos Software 3.3 update is scheduled for the end of this month, after which anyone with a Sonos Zoneplayer, a Sonos controller (such as the swish new free iPhone and iPad applications) and a Spotify Premium account can play any song in any room, any time they like.
If you use the Sonos ZonePlayer S5 (two of which can now be configured as a stereo pair as well as two separate zones), you'll need no ‘traditional' hi-fi equipment at all – your S5, Controller and Spotify account gives you wireless access to over thirty year's-worth of uninterrupted listening.
As well as the UK, the Sonos/Spotify tie-in will be available to users in Finland, France, Holland, Norway, Spain and Sweden. See the Sonos video demonstration here.
