Spotify launches today on PS4 and PS3 with PlayStation Music

Yahoo! Music News - Mon, 03/30/2015 - 17:00

Spotify launches today on PS4 and PS3 with PlayStation MusicMusic playback on PlayStation consoles gets a boost today with the arrival of PlayStation Music featuring Spotify, which replaces Sony's Music Unlimited service. The app is launching in 41 markets worldwide, allowing most of Spotify's 60 million users — three-fourths of whom use the ad-supported free version of the service — to stream music while they play games on their PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4. You can use PlayStation Music completely for free: It doesn't require a PlayStation Plus membership, and you can use it with a free Spotify account or Spotify Premium, which costs $9.99 per month. Representatives for Sony and Spotify told Polygon during a demo of the PS4 app last week that the two companies worked together closely on PlayStation Music, and it shows: "Seamless" is the best word we can think of to describe the experience.
