TunesMap looking to Sonos users for Apple TV beta testing

The app TunesMap, which connects videos, photos and links of related material to streamed songs, is looking for owners of the Sonos wireless home sound system to test its Apple TV beta application.

The company is now qualifying potential testers on its website requiring users to have both Sonos and Apple TV. Beta testing will run from now through February 2018, the company said in a press statement.

“TunesMap empowers users to experience music holistically,” said G. Marq Roswell, TunesMap Founder and CEO. “The feedback we aim to receive from this beta launch will be crucial to fulfill our goal of providing seamless cultural exploration around any song.”

TunesMap, which was announced earlier this year, is what its founder has called an interactive “context engine”. The goal of the app is to show images and historical notes – like vintage photos and handwritten lyrics – related to the artist or their song on Apple TV.

When finished and released, the app will be free through the Apple TV App Store. It will work with streaming songs played on Sonos from Spotify, Apple Music and other major streaming services.

The company has raised $4.75 million from entertainment-industry veterans and from the Visionary Private Equity Group to develop the app. TunesMap plans to make money through a commission of any sales made through the app.
