Sonos and IKEA have announced they'll be teaming up to bring "music and sound" to homes across the world. Although not many details have been given so far, it is integrated in the Ikea Home Smart initiative which saw the Swedish giant integrating Qi wireless charging in its furniture back in 2015.

This is also a big move for Sonos, which has been teaming up with numerous services lately -- Amazon's Alexa, Apple Music, Google Assistant -- and will allow it to be even more present in everybody's day-to-day life.

"At IKEA we strive to make solutions for life at home by integrating technology into our home furnishing offer that are easy to use and affordable, thereby making smart home technology accessible to the many people," Björn Block of IKEA's smart home division explains. "Together with Sonos we want to democratise music and sound in the home, and we want to create products designed for how people listen together at home. By teaming up with Sonos we want to combine IKEA home furnishing knowledge with Sonos’ expertise within great home sound."

The first results of this partnership are expected to arrive in 2019.
