Easy listening while you shoot aliens or race cars. Popular music streaming service, Spotify, is heading to exclusively to Playstation.
In a press release earlier today, Sony announced an exciting partnership with digital music service giant Spotify. The best thing about this whole deal is that you’ll be able to play any of your Spotify playlists in the background of any game your playing on the PS4.
We know how important music is to our community of gamers, and this partnership combines the best in music with the best in gaming. PlayStation Network users will enjoy the convenience of linking your accounts to Spotify, making it easy to sign-up with your existing ID and subscribe to Spotify’s Premium service. You can also use Spotify while playing games on PS4, enabling you to soundtrack your gaming sessions with your favorite songs in the background. Want something heavy and rocking for an intense Destiny Raid? How about some old school hip hop while taking the field in Madden NFL? With more than 30 million songs and 1.5 billion playlists, Spotify on PlayStation Music has it covered. As we get closer to launch we look forward to telling you about some of the other great features that will be available exclusively through Spotify on PlayStation Music.
Spotify will be launching as part of the Playstation Music initiative on exclusively on PS3, PS4 and Xperia devices. This is will essentially replace Music Unlimited prior to the launch of Playstation Music at the end of March. No word on any Vita support just yet or if the PS3 version of Spotify will let you stream music in the background while you play, we will keep you posted.
