Samsung Makes Spotify Its Go-To Music Platform
Following the unveiling of new devices like the Galaxy Home, the Galaxy Watch and the new Galaxy Note 9 at its Unpacked event recently, Samsung also announced a partnership with Spotify.
The goal is to create a seamless cross-device listening experience on Samsung devices, including the newly launched ones.
As demonstrated onstage during the announcement, you should be able to start playing a song on your phone, then switch over to your TV, then over to your Galaxy Home.
This integration that will allow you to play Spotify on your Samsung Smart TV through the SmartThings app deepens the integration between Spotify and Samsung’s voice assistant Bixby, making Spotify the default choice whenever you ask Bixby to look for music.
In addition, Spotify will become part of the set-up experience on Samsung devices.
Spotify CEO Daniel Ek took the stage at Unpacked to talk about the partnership, which he also discussed in the official Spotify announcement.
“We believe that this significant long-term partnership will provide Samsung users across millions of devices with the best possible music streaming experience, and make discovering new music easier than ever – with even more opportunities to come,” Ek said.
