London: Online music services Music Hub only appear on some Samsung devices in six countries around the world. However, in the future, Samsung plans to expand it to other manufacturers.
Vice director of Samsung’s multimedia services, TJ Kang, said the initial plan is to bring Music Hub to the phone, tablet, Smart TV and even its refrigerator. But in the current session, users tend to own equipment from many different manufacturers, thus expanding the Music Hub client will use to access this service easier.
Music Hub is a cloud-based service combining a user’s own library with Spotify-style streaming, radio and discovery features. It’s essentially a rival to traditional music stores, online radio, streaming services and cloud locker services all in one package. It’s currently only available on the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note II, but TJ Kang.
SVP for Samsung Media Services told The Next Web that the plan to expand its availability goes beyond just the company’s own hardware.
Music Hub is already available as a download on Google Play.
