Samsung has quietly tiptoed in the music streaming service market with the launch of Milk Music app. Currently the app is available on Google Play and it works on Samsung Galaxy devices such as Galaxy S4, Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note II in the US territory only. Samsung says that the app will also be available for their latest flagship device, the Galaxy S 5 when it makes it to the shelves in April. Samsung’s Milk Music is free to download and will also remain ad-free for a limited period of time. The Milk Music app is powered by Slacker, which is another music streaming service available in North America.
On a closer inspection of the online radio service, you immediately notice the dial design that helps you switch to the station of your favourite genre easily. The app boasts of 200 genre-based stations and a song library of over 13 million songs. In every genre-based station you also get a Fine-Tune Station option that allows you to adjust the song playback based on popularity, novelty and song favourites.
In addition to these regular stations users also get a “Spotlight” feature that has a selection of tracks chosen by music professionals. Users can also create their own stations that have the songs and albums of their choice. The only limitation in music playback is that you are allowed only six skips per hour in each station. Even though Samsung allows you to use the Milk Music app without any sign-in, it recommends you to use your Samsung account to make sure that your music preferences are saved so that can be used on other devices.
As we await more information regarding availability in other regions, we shall request our readers in the US to use this app and put up a small review in the comment section below or create a new thread on the forum for a detailed one.
