PlayStation, Meet Spotify

Eric Lempel's Avatar Posted by on Jan 28, 2015 // SVP, PlayStation Network

Hello everyone! I’m thrilled today to introduce a new music destination called PlayStation Music, with Spotify as the exclusive partner. We’ve partnered with our friends at Spotify to bring its award-winning digital music service to PlayStation Network this spring in 41 markets around the world.

PlayStation Music + Spotify

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.

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 March 29, 2015. Nearly all of these countries will be among the 41 markets where PlayStation Music featuring Spotify will be available at launch, including the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Brazil. From February 28, 2015, Music Unlimited users with active subscriptions will receive up to 30 days of free access through March 29, 2015.

Stay tuned to PlayStation.Blog for more details on PlayStation Music featuring Spotify, and in the meantime you can sign up for updates here.

Will those of us who don’t have a Spotify subscription still be able to listen to the music with ads?

    Yes. Both versions of Spotify, free and premium, will be available when we launch Spotify on PlayStation Music.

The best $10 I spend a month is about to get even better.

Everything is changing and I don’t like it.

I’m pretty sure my Music Unlimited subscription exceeds past March 29th, and no Vita support? My Vita just lost so much support this morning -_-

Sony is shutting down everything.

Pretty sweet. I’ve been a paying member of spotify, since release. I’m looking forward to playing racing games with my playlists and saved full albums. Did not care much for the music tracks on NFS Rivals. Hopefully, the app performs better than the Sony music plus one.

Will this enable us to have ad-free music with Spotify through our Playstation Plus subscription, or will we need to purchase a Spotify subscription?

+ gold_og_roger on January 28th, 2015 at 7:43 am said:

It’d be sweeter if there was a Vita app too. Keep us in mind please.

And as always we forgot that we have sold some Vita units in the States so who gives…

Sad to see music unlimited go, I actually loved it. Never used spottify before i hope i like it,

+ gerneric123 on January 28th, 2015 at 7:45 am said:

I guess Vita is officially end of life to Sony now. No PlayStation Vue, shut down Skype, Google Maps, Youtube (!) and Music Unlimited with no new apps to lessen the blow.

Terrible company.

Best PS4 news since Uncharted 4 !!!! :)

Is Australia getting it? I’d like to assume so, and have been waiting for Spotify on PS4 ever since I got my PS4.


21

+ buffpotato on January 28th, 2015 at 7:51 am said:

Meh, one crappy service for another. Plus no more Vita support because who cares about Vita…Can we just get actual decent media support on PS4 like PS3 has had forever instead of more and more apps for services with subscriptions? Or is that the future where you suck us dry every month?


22

+ freshprincepbg on January 28th, 2015 at 7:52 am said:

Playstation Home
Music Unlimited
Youtube on PS Vita
Near

what else are you shutting down that I love? Sony has not been friendly to me lately

Finally! Been waiting for this!! Good move Sony!

i hope we can also make good usage of pulse elite / gold headsets in app!

I’m a free user of Spotify. Can I still listen to the music while I play my video games?

    You certainly can

+ madmanwithabox12 on January 28th, 2015 at 7:54 am said:

Oh look, something else that isn’t coming to Vita. It’s amazing how out of touch with their fans Sony can be sometimes. Vita is always being left out in the lurch like a far removed cousin. It’s not very encouraging for the future of my favourite handheld. =/

+ SirDerpity on January 28th, 2015 at 7:54 am said:

thanks for showing support for the vita /s

+ Crunchewy on January 28th, 2015 at 7:56 am said:

Bummed this isn’t coming to Vita at launch. Is there an ETA on when we’ll see it on Vita? For me Spotify will be a lot more valuable to me on Vita.

+ againes on January 28th, 2015 at 7:56 am said:

YET INSTEAD OF JUST MAKING IT EASIER FOR EVERYONE TO PLAY MUSIC THAT WE ALREADY OWN THEY EXPECT US TO COME OUT OF OUR POCKETS FOR ANOTHER MUSIC PROGRAM. WHY SONY, DO WE HAVE TO USE AN ANNOYING USB WHEN OUR MUSIC CAN JUST BE COPIED ON THE PS4 ITSELF? AND STILL NO VIDEO COMPATIBLITY. THIS MONEY GRABBING FROM COMPANIES IS RIDICULOUS.

+ stcybergoth on January 28th, 2015 at 7:56 am said:

Spotify will be available in Portugal?
What about YouTube and Maps apps on Vita?
Sony you treat the vita customers like ****. I think vita deserve spotify application too

+ yowzagabowza on January 28th, 2015 at 7:57 am said:

F*** this sercice. Sony, you suck. How bout letting us do the things the old PS3 could do? Then i wouldnt have to spend money to do shet that used to be free.
At least that stupid music unlimited icon will be off my home screen.
And Eric, dont start these posts off by saying stuff loke “we’re listening” when you clearly aren’t.

I loved MU. But this service will be more widely accepted. Very smart move.

This is really awesome news seeing as I just got Spotify. When is this releasing? Also its a shame its not coming to Vita. :(

I just fired up Spotify on my PC and thought…..you know I wish my PS4 had Spotify…..BAM!

So UH? I wish my PS4 had Civilization Beyond Earth……did it work?

+ dazzlinggirl on January 28th, 2015 at 8:02 am said:

Uhm, hello can the Vita (even better PSTV) not handle it? It’s sad when you bring it to tablets and smartphones first. Then you wonder why sales aren’t good…. It’s the little things that counts


39

+ Shadow_Enz on January 28th, 2015 at 8:04 am said:

I have no interest in Spotify as it currently stands. So I’ve never been a Spotify customer.

I love my Vita, and I love music.

The best chance for me to consider and give Spotify a chance, would’ve been Vita support. You want new customers, right?


40

+ EagleEyeSamurai on January 28th, 2015 at 8:05 am said:

Ahaaaaaaa! So THIS is what you guys have been up to instead of upgrading the music unlimited service. I was thinking MU needed a major overhaul to make it more like Spotify, my go to music app, or be satisfied with being mediocre. This collaboration makes all sorts of sense. Well done. My Xperia and PS4 are ready.
