Premium subscription plan coming to Samsung's Milk Music

Premium subscription plan coming to Samsung's Milk Music
Back in March, Samsung launched its ad-supported free streaming music service, Milk Music, to owners of its Top-Shelf Android handsets. Using an infographic to get the word out, the Korean manufacturer plans on soon adding ads to the free version of the service. But for those who are allergic to advertisements, Samsung will offer a variant of Milk Music with no ads at all, for $3.99 a month. So far, Sammy has yet to reveal exactly when these changes are to take place.

Milk Music has a library of 13 million tunes that can be divided into 17 genres, and played on over 200 stations. Using Samsung's Wheel UX, you can create your own wheel using 9 out of the 17 genres available. There are also three ways to find music. Quick Tuning allows you to select your genres and stations. Slow Tuning lets you pick the genre and then browse and select stations, and Fine Tuning recommends the music that best matches your personal preferences.

Powered by Slacker, Samsung Milk Music is compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung GALAXY Note II and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. You can find the app in the Google Play Store or from Samsung Apps.

I listen to Milk on my N3. It's not bad but I really don't care for the interface wheel. Quality and selection of music is pretty good.

I can't see any real upside to Samsung offering this service. Why not just cut a deal and put Spotify on their phones? That would be far more compelling than some mediocre me-too offering. And then make a phone with high quality audio output and cut another deal with Spotify to offer truly awesome HD streaming. Samsung could do amazing things if they embraced innovation vs. "throw the gimmick feature spaghetti on the wall and hope it sticks".

Milk Music is powered by Slacker. It is actually pretty good. The playlists are actually done by people and not some computer algorithm. I wouldn't call that a "mediocre offering." I do agree though they should stream at a higher quality than 128 kbps.
