Sony has officially launched PlayStation Music, which serves as a new music destination that brings Spotify to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Xperia mobile devices today.
PlayStation Network users can link their Spotify accounts to PlayStation Music in order to access over 30 million songs and 1.5 billion playlists. PlayStation 4 users can use PlayStation Music to add a soundtrack to their gaming sessions, which is a feature console owners have been lacking. In order to make controlling their music even easier, PS4 and PS3 users can use Spotify Connect on the official Spotify app in order to interact with PlayStation Music, such as selecting a playlist, skipping songs, adjusting the volume, and more.
In order to use Spotify on PlayStation Music, you’ll need to be a Premium member, which costs $9.99 per month. Sony has a number of ways to check out the service for yourself before you spend any money by giving Music Unlimited subscribers 2 free months of free access, so long as their accounts were active as of March 29, 2015. The other option allows both new and existing Spotify users who have not received a trial of Spotify Premium can receive one month free.
Sony announced Spotify was headed to its PlayStation platforms and Xperia mobile devices back in January, while also doing away with its Music Unlimited service. We see this as a very smart move by Sony considering just how popular Spotify is. Many of us are subscribers to its Premium service and enjoy it on a daily basis and we're definitely excited to blast some tunes while playing Bloodborne later.
