Spotify on PlayStation and Sony Xperia
Sony has announced its new platform, which actually means the closure of the one that was active until now. And it is that, Music Unlimited had not had a great success, in part because it was still a platform with fewer features than others like Spotify, in addition to the fact that it was launched later, which made it difficult for Music Unlimited the way to compete with Spotify. Perhaps that is why the company has decided to close its platform to bring the new PlayStation Music. This new platform will be based on Spotify, so it will have the same songs as this one, as well as the different playlists. In principle, it should be almost the same as Spotify. PlayStation Music will initially be available on Sony video game consoles, as well as Sony Xperia smartphones and tablets.
What is the difference between Spotify and PlayStation Music?
Perhaps you wonder what the difference between Spotify and PlayStation Music is going to be, and the truth is that it is difficult to find differences. In fact, the main differences will be in the platforms on which the different services can be installed. While Spotify is available for Android, iOS and Windows smartphones, as well as Windows, Linux and Mac computers, as well as a web version; PlayStation Music will only be available for Sony video consoles, Sony Xperia smartphones and tablets (which may also have Spotify), and other devices such as televisions, bluray, DVDs, etc.
However, there are two details to highlight. PlayStation Music will allow us to listen to Spotify music while we are playing a video game on the PlayStation. This in turn leads us to the fact that it seems that Sony has wanted to integrate Spotify into its own platform, and that would only be possible if Spotify is truly a platform based on Sony itself. It has been said many times that the reason Spotify got ahead is because of the big companies behind it, and Sony would be one of them. He has closed his own Music Unlimited, to launch PlayStation Music based on Spotify. We will see if over time this new PlayStation Music platform does not bring news that the company wants to transfer to the smartphones and tablets of other companies.
PlayStation Music will land in the spring, when Music Unlimited closes. Users with a Music Unlimited account will receive a month free of Spotify Premium, and it would not be at all strange that at some point there are discounts on Spotify for users who have a PlayStation Plus contracted. Be that as it may, Spain would be one of the countries in which PlayStation Music would be launched, here Music Unlimited was already active, and it was also one of the first countries in which Spotify was launched.
