Sony and Spotify have announced a partnership to deliver a new digital music experience through the PlayStation Network. This huge partnership will bring a new service in the Spring of 2015 called PlayStation Music. PlayStation Music will cover 41 markets and will start on PS3, PS4, and Xperia products.
PlayStation Network users can link their accounts with Spotify, making it easy to subscribe to Spotify’s Premium service through the PlayStation Network wallet. If you already have a Spotify premium membership, that can be carried over and used with PlayStation Music.
Spotify on PlayStation Music will offer more than 30 million songs and 1.5 billion playlists. Users will also be able to create their own music collection and playlists and enjoy the service on all of Spotify’s supported devices – even if it’s not through PlayStation Music. Additionally, PS4 owners will be able to use Spotify while playing games.
This new venture, however, means that some old ones must come to an end. Sony’s Music Unlimited service will close in all markets on March 29, 2015. From February 28, 2015, Music Unlimited users with active subscriptions will receive up to 30 days of free access to Music Unlimited through March 29, 2015, and will be offered an introductory Spotify Premium trial.
Both versions of Spotify, free and premium, will be available once the service goes live this Spring.
