Jay-Z’s TIDAL isn’t the only streaming service to launch today, Sony has just announced that Spotify has launched today for Playstation 4 and Playstation 3 users.
It was thought the new partnership would start in May after Playstation France let the release date slip in a tweet last week.
Well, it seems that date was wrong and the service is being rolled out today in 41 countries.
The new service is a big-screen version of Spotify exclusively for Playstation users and allows gamers to stream music in the background whilst they game.
To make controlling the music even easier PS4 and PS3 users will be able to take advantage of the Spotify Connect feature on the official Spotify app for Android/iOS to select a playlists, skip songs, adjust the volume, and more.
The service offers a staggering 30 million songs and 1.5 billion playlists for the world’s most powerful home console.
Users who were subscribed to Sony’s own Music Unlimited as of March 29, 2015, can receive 2 months of free access to Spotify Premium, whilst new and existing Spotify users who have not previously received a trial of Spotify Premium can receive one month free.
