Samsung details premium subscription for Milk Music service

updated 02:41 pm EDT, Fri April 18, 2014

Free service will gain advertising, $3.99 subscription will be ad-free

Samsung will be offering a premium version of its Milk Music service to its users in the future, the phone manufacturer has revealed. Launched last month as a free service for Galaxy smartphone owners, Samsung will soon introduce advertising to free accounts, adding an option to remove advertising priced at $3.99 per month, with premium subscribers said to be receiving some unnamed "exclusive features."

The US-only music service uses a central circular dial, providing access to more than 200 genre-based stations, using a catalog of more than 13 million tracks. A Spotlight section uses a curated list of popular stations, with a "My Stations" listing offering further personalization. Users can skip tracks up to a total of six times on a specific station per hour, a "Never Play Song" listing blacklists a track from being played again across all stations, and the app also keeps track of the last 500 songs played by the user.
