Sony’s Music Unlimited service wasn’t very popular. It wasn’t very popular to the point that Sony shut it down, but as of today, users of Sony devices can now access the music streaming service known as Spotify. While Pandora is the most popular streaming service in the USA, Spotify has taken the rest of the world by storm, and now it’s available on Sony platform in two flavors; free and premium.
The free service is what you’d expect; you can select songs from the available lists and create your own playlists and of course, there are ads. The premium service, which charges $9.99 per month, is available on a free two month trial right now. As to be expected, there are no ads on the premium service, audio quality is higher, there are exclusive early releases, and you can actually download songs and listen to them offline. And, on the PS4, there is once again the ability to use the service as your substitute soundtrack and stream those songs into your games while you play, so if, for some reason, you feel like playing Call of Duty while listening to Enya’s “Orinoco Flow,” you are free to do so. The file size for the app is tiny, a mere 9.8 MB, so there’s really no reason to not download it and give it a try unless music’s just not your thing.
