Spotify finally makes the jump to PlayStation.
Some time ago, we broke the news to you that Spotify would be coming to PlayStation via the new PlayStation Music app, that it would be powering. As of today, the new app is now available, launching in 41 markets worldwide, allowing suers to listen to their music while they play their games.
The best part is, PlayStation Music is completely free- you don’t need a PS+ membership to use it, nor do you need to be subscribed to Spotify Premium. The free version, much like Spotify on any other device, will be supported by periodic ads, of course.
Booting up the app will let you link it to your existing Spotify account, if you have one, or let you make a new one if you don’t, If you are a newcomer, you get 30 days of Spotify Premium for free; if you were subscribed to Music Unlimited, you get 60 days of Spotify Premium for free.
Sony views this as a pretty exciting and long going collaboration.
“We’re not going to just launch this and walk away,” they said. “We’ll continue to work with the Spotify team to create even deeper integration, and other experiences that people tell us that they want.”
“We view this as a true partnership,” said James. “It’s the product and engineering teams, it’s the marketing teams, it’s everybody in between that got together to build something together that was right for this platform and this audience.”
Spotify is now available on the PSN Store on PS3 and PS4. No word on when (if) it will be coming to the Vita.
