Music Just Got Bigger And Better With Samsung And Google
Today, Google and Samsung announced a new partnership that will make Google's very own Music App the default music player on new Samsung phone and tablets worldwide. Starting with the launch of Samsung's flagship smartphones, Galaxy S8 and S8+, Google Play Music will be the default music player and music service of all upcoming devices. The agreement comes with an added bonus for Samsung owners to be able to upload up 100,000 songs to their Google Play Music account for free.
Google Play Music: The Default Music App On All Samsung Devices
According to The Verge, Samsung is giving Google Play Music a big breakthrough along with the retail launch of the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Technically, this contract began a year ago since Google Play Music was the default music playback app on the Samsung Galaxy S7. However, both companies announced the partnership just today maybe because to give way for the newly released flagship smartphones.
Aside from the fact that Samsung owners can now upload a huge number of songs to their Google Play Music, it is also reported that Google is making enhancements to the Play Music app and services exclusively for Samsung customers. Google has also promised that Play Music will support Bixby, Samsung’s very own smartphone assistant. Also, all Samsung Galaxy S8 buyers will receive a three-month free trial for Play Music.
In addition to that, once a Samsung owner updates the default music app on his/her device, he/she will also have a free trial to YouTube Red. The basic Music player app for all Samsung devices isn't going away. The app, as well its services, will still be on the company's phones, though Play Music will be the default music player. As reported by Mashable, this partnership of Samsung and Google is to fully compete with Spotify, Apple Music, as well as Google's own video-sharing website, YouTube.
