Galaxy S8-exclusive New Release Radio opens to all Play Music users, here's how to access

Google just made the New Release Radio station that launched as a Galaxy S8 exclusive available for all of its Play Music service users. The station uses AI to learn your listening habits, and constantly scouts for newly released tunes or albums that are in sync with your music preferences, streaming them via the Play Music app on your phone. You know, like Spotify, Deezer and the like, but going back just two weeks in time to dig up the freshest content. 

That's a pretty easy way to follow what's new in your musical neck of the woods without spending too much time curating or reading about new releases. At first, the feature was meant to be a timed exclusive for Samsung's newest flagships, along with making Google Play Music the default music player on them, and doubling the locker allowance to 100,000 songs. 

Apparently, the three-month grace period has passed, and Google is opening the machine learning musical floodgates. Here's how to access the new station if you are a subscriber to the music service:

1. Go to the Play Music app, and search for the New Release Radio station;

2. Hit your browser, and go to the web app version of the radio station.
