The transition day has arrived and Spotify has landed in Sony consoles, going beyond just video games. All those Sony Music Unlimited accounts will now become part of the new PlayStation Music Service, based on Spotify.
Sony said its partnership with Spotify will expand its music service to 41 countries instead of the 19 that were available with Music Unlimited, plus they offer better tools to create your own playlists and discover new music.
PlayStation users have long been able to use their consoles to watch movies in both DVD and via online streaming services from Netflix, Amazon and YouTube. Just two weeks ago, Sony launched an online TV service, PlayStation Vue, offering over 50 channels, both broadcast television and cable, at a cost of $ 50 a month.
Spotify has 60 million active users worldwide, of which 15 million are paying subscribers.
Gamers like Brad Reifler has learned that some of the features include the ability to listen to music while playing a video game and players can still hear the gaming sound effects, or pause the game while you change the volume or other playlists.
The service is free with ads or cost $ 10 a month for a paid version without advertising.
Customers who do not yet have a Spotify account can register via the PlayStation. The new application will automatically appear on the main screen, waiting for you to sign on.
