Sonos Hijacks Apple’s HomePod Launch With A Snarky Playlist
The home sound system brand cheekily acknowledged its new competition with a playlist to honor the HomePod's arrival

The song titles on the playlist spell out messages like “You’re crazy for this” and “Two is better than one,” and the mix ends with “We’re going to stay friends over everything.” While the HomePod puts Apple in direct competition with its brand, Sonos is clearly acknowledging that it needs to keep its enemies close. In fact, Sonos already relies on integration with Apple products in order to work for consumers who use them.
