Samsung has come up with a free music streaming service called Milk Music. Only available for Galaxy customers, the service aims to take on a host of companies that have already achieved broad global reach in the streaming music business, including Apple’s iTunes Radio.
Milk Music is free to download and free to listen to, and importantly, with no ads. Also, users don’t even require a log in to use the service.
iTunes Radio, on the other hand, is available for free with ads and ad-free with a price tag of $24.99 via the iTunes Match service.
You can now avail Milk Music through the Google Play store. Though the radio service currently works with Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones and tablets, the company has plans to expand its use to competing mobile devices, according to Daren Tsui, vice president of music at Samsung Media Solutions.
Though Samsung is a Korean company, the service will initially be available in the US (the world’s biggest music market) and expanded to other parts of the world at a later date.
“Knowing Samsung, the chances are very high” it will be expanded internationally, Tsui said.
The Korean electronics giant previously ventured into music streaming with Music Hub, which functioned as Samsung’s own player and store. Launched in 2012, the service was shut down recently.[Image Credit: TechnoBuffalo]
