PlayStation, Meet Spotify

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.

  • Whoa this is awesome! I love Spotify!

  • Charliesdad

    So, does this mean then end of Music Unlimited??

  • Charliesdad

    ugh… *The end.

  • GreggSidski

    No Vita?

  • Tuppery_Numnak

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

  • freshprincepbg

    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.

  • Charliesdad

    aaaannnnd, guess I should have read the whole post. #AnsweredMyOwnQuestion

  • gold_og_roger

    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

    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…

  • Never used spotify, but i’m glad that it’s coming to Brazil at launch!

  • Brooklyn008

    OMG. That is massive news for me! Awesome, thanks for that!!

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

  • gerneric123

    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.

  • Benzem_Edition

  • gerneric123

    Wow at Xperia but not Vita. Those phones aren’t even SCE products.

  • YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!

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

  • TriggrTortoise

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

  • 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?

  • freshprincepbg

    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!

  • oh boy, awesome news
    i hope we can also make good usage of pulse elite / gold headsets in app!

  • sMoKiN_dEm_TrEeS

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

  • madmanwithabox12

    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. =/

  • thanks for showing support for the vita /s

  • 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.

  • 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

    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

    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. :(

  • jon_h_blake

    My mom and dad love all their 3 children.This is something Sony should learn.

  • stcybergoth

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

  • Seriously GREAT news! I can finally use my GTA:VICE CITY Playlist with GTA V!

  • 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

    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

  • 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?

  • EagleEyeSamurai

    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.

  • Music Unlimited is waaaaaaaaaaaay better than Spotify. This news are bad.

  • This is great

  • So I already have Spotify premium. So when I link my PlayStation Music account to Spotify premium will I be set to go?! Or is PlayStation Music a different package?!

  • Nice!

  • saiyanknight87

    man i just want to be able to use the media server with the visualizer is that so wrong but good job on the apps though keep em coming make PS4 the best place to be for games and entertainment!! :)

  • Amazing but where is HBO GO?

  • Never heard of spotify. I’m just starting to like music unlimited and my 100+ song playlist. Now I have to start over?

  • saiyanknight87

    This would be perfect for the vita as well don’t forget about the little brother of the PS family!

  • SeanStrange

    Very great move. Love Spotify and I’m glad it’s coming to Playstation 4.

  • thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!
