Sony to power up music stream services with Spotify support on PSN

January 29, 2015, By Daniel Rapcencu

Sony has joined hands with Spotify to usher in music stream services on the PlayStation Network. The new feature called PlayStation Music will come with Spotify integration and will also bid adieu to the older Music Unlimited services.

The Japanese tech giant has announced that the current music stream services will be shut down by the end of March, following which PSN will be blessed with the new Spotify supported music stream services.

Plans are to launch the PlayStation Music services initially on PS4, PS3, and on Xperia devices. However, Sony hasn’t mentioned a date on which the new service will be made available.

Around 41 countries will be lucky to get the new services on PSN, which also include the 19 countries in which Music Unlimited services will be pulled out from.

Being one of the most sounding names in music stream services, Spotify is also to support music playback during the gameplay hours in PS consoles. PSN accounts could be linked to Spotify and users could also take their Spotify account to other devices in which PSN is not supported.

As for the Music Unlimited subscribers, Sony has announced that they could avail the services of the feature free of charges in its closing duration.

The free services would be made available from February 28th and until March 29th, on which the curtains will be closed for Sony’s less acclaimed music stream services.
