Samsung Music beta app now live for Galaxy devices running Android Marshmallow

Samsung Music beta app now live for Galaxy devices running Android Marshmallow
Three questions – 1) Do you have a Samsung Galaxy device? 2) Does it run Android Marshmallow? 3) Are you in the mood for some bangin' tunes? If you answered with a resounding 'Yes' to all three, congratulations – you're eligible to test Samsung's new music app. Live now on Google Play, the new app is simply titled 'Samsung Music', and unlike its Apple counterpart, it's just a basic MP3/WMA/AAC/FLAC playing music app with polished looks.

Built for playing songs rather than to take audiophiles onto expeditions into the depths of sound tweaking, the app features tabs for switching between playlists, tracks, albums, artists, genre, and other categories for arranging your songs. The tabs can be customized in the app’s settings, while other parameters in your control include auto-off, playback speed, and automatic volume leveling.

Right now, Samsung Music is only compatible with Samsung Galaxy devices running Android Marshmallow, although it's also supposed to work on other Samsung smart devices like tablets, TVs, and wearables. The application is free and certainly looks great, but it's also in beta, which means the occasional bug is to be expected. Should you decide to rock your socks off, though, treat yourself to it from the download link below.

Why bother about your phone being unqualified? It's another bloatware.

Samsung should leave it at the PlayStore, and let users decide if they want it or not. No to another bloat.

Did you even read the article? The app is already moved to the Play Store. The Samsung Video & Music apps are my favourite. I like the new design of the App. Thats why I bothered about my phone being incompatible.

Yup. their music app is very good. But one thing that make me really sad. Samsung can create very goos stand alone DAP Yepp series. Why they are not implement those technologies to their phones. Come on Samsung.!!!

@catze86 Because... Smartphones? Sony phones' 'Walkman' is merely an app. Samsung could have a "Yepp" app... but why?

I'm tired of the blurried design, it got boring after all these years and it's lazy IMO the best designed music player is iOS with jailbreak tweak called colorflow. Simple, effective

"With jailbreak tweak called colorflow" JAILBREAK (void wartanty) you say! Meanwhile you can get same colorflow feature on Android without rooting. :D

Edit: void warranty. R is next to T in the QWERTY keyboard, you know... So, my typo isn't too bad of an error. Now, man up, Wiencon!

Jailbreak voids your warranty only if you're completely not thinking, there is no problem restoring iPhone via iTunes and then it's impossible to detect it

Do people still download music to their phones!? I chuck it all in the Google cloud and use Play Music to play it. I kinda wish Google would allow third parties to access users stored music though, so we can choose other players.
