NEW YORK (AP) – Spotify’s music service is coming to PlayStation game consoles and replacing Sony’s own Music Unlimited.
Spotify hits the PlayStation 3 and 4 on Monday, with a new app adapted for large television screens. Sony says partnering with Spotify brings a music service to more countries, as well as better tools for playlists and music discovery.
Spotify’s music app is available on some Internet-connected TVs and set-top boxes, but Spotify says it worked closely with Sony to optimize its service for the PlayStation. Among the notable features: the ability to listen to music while playing a game and still listening to sound effects.
The service is free with ads, or costs $10 a month for a premium ad-free version.
