Sony has announced that it has partnered with Spotify to bring its digital music service to the PlayStation Network this spring, and will be launching in 41 markets around the world. The new app will be called Spotify on PlayStation Music and will give you access to Spotify’s 30 million song catalogue. The app will also be usable during gameplay, letting you soundtrack your gaming sessions.
The new service will launch initially on PS4 and PS3, as well as Xperia smartphones and tablets. You’ll of course be able to listen to your favorite playlists – including existing playlists from current Spotify users as well as Spotify curated playlists – and enjoy the service on all of Spotify’s supported devices.
Prior to the launch of Spotify on PlayStation Music, the Music Unlimited service will close in all 19 countries on 29th March 2015. Nearly all of these countries will be among the 41 markets where PlayStation Music featuring Spotify will be available at launch, including the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy. From 28th February 2015, Music Unlimited users with active subscriptions will receive free access to Music Unlimited until it closes on 29th March 2015.
