Samsung Galaxy devices to get special Google Play Music integration and bonuses

Samsung ready to make chips faster than the ones in Galaxy S8

Samsung ready to make chips faster than the ones in Galaxy S8

Samsung's new Google partnership was announced in a blog today by Elias Roman, Lead Product Manager, Google Play Music. That potentially opens up a whole new audience to Play Music, which is competing with Spotify, Apple Music and Google's own YouTube to name a few.

While Samsung Galaxy S8's display has been earning the smartphone a great deal of appreciation from reviewers around the world, some South Korean units of the device were reported to have a red tint on their display earlier this week. However, I still wouldn't want it as my default music player. While there are no new Samsung-specific features for the two partners to boast about right now, Samsung owners using Google Play Music will see some exclusive perks while they wait for new features.

As mentioned above, the Galaxy S8 follows the LG G6's lead with a taller display, eschewing the typical 16:9 widescreen dimensions when it's held sideways. The most common free-trial is 30-days.

While Google no doubt hopes that making Google Play Music the default system for Samsung devices will translate in more subscribers, that doesn't have to be the case. A Korean news outlet, Korea Herald, reported a Samsung spokesperson stating, "Because there are some complaints about the red-tinted screens, we made a decision to upgrade the software next week for all Galaxy S8 clients." . Finally, Google Play Music will be integrated seamlessly into Bixby, so all music-related commands that don't specify a different app will go through Google Play Music by default.

Once Bixby is fully operational, Google Play Music will work with Bixby. It IS possible that the APK for this Samsung version of Google Play Music will be listed separate from the rest - if that ends up being true, we'll be updating this article with a new download link.
