Samsung's paid version of Milk Music adds unlimited skips, and more
Samsung has added a premium version to its streaming music feature, Milk Music. This should not be a shock, since back in April there was talk about a paid version of the app being prepped. While a free version of the app will still remain available, listeners who want to continue to use the service for free, will have to keep on listening to advertisements. For $3.99 a month, Milk Music subscribers can eliminate the ads, and also get to take advantage of some new features.

With the premium subscription of Milk Music, you can listen to stations without being hooked up to a network connection. Even more important, paid subscribers receive unlimited skips. That means, if you don't like the song that is playing, you can skip ahead to the next tune. You can also turn off DJ commentary and pause the app using Sleep Timer.

To keep Google's paws off the money coming in from the paid version of Samsung's streaming service, Samsung is not using the Google Play Store's subscription platform. Instead, those who want to sign up for the subscription service of Milk Music will need to have a Samsung account. Still, there is nothing that forces you to pay for Milk Music, just as long as you don't mind the ads, and don't need the new features.

Along with adding the premium version of Milk Music, Samsung tossed in the usual performance enhancements and bug fixes. And if you live outside of the U.S, don't beat yourself up for not finding the app anywhere; Milk Music is available only in the states for the time being.
