Google Play Music has partnered with Samsung, offering a free six-month subscription with new Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge devices.
The partnership brings to an end Samsung’s bundle deal with Deezer, which saw the streaming platform offer its Premium+ service free for six months on the Galaxy S5.
This isn’t the first time Samsung and Google Play Music have teamed up – in September last year, the two companies partnered in 17 Latin American countries, offering a free six-month subscription to Google Play on new Samsung devices.
Richard Wheeler, head of distribution partnerships, Google Play Music, said: “With more and more of us using our smartphones as a music device, we’ve partnered with Samsung to give music fans an easy way to store, download and stream music on a range of fantastic phones.
“Google Play Music’s subscription has more than 30 million songs, as well as unlimited ad-free streaming and playlists to help you discover the perfect tracks to suit your mood, so music fans will never be stuck for what to listen to.”
Chong Won Lim (pictured), head of product marketing, IT & Mobile at Samsung Electronics UK and Ireland, added: “At Samsung, we are committed to giving our customers what they want and we know music is a huge part of many of our users’ lives.
“Technology has revolutionised the way we consume entertainment and we are delighted that through this partnership with Google Play Music we are able to enhance the mobile experience for so many of our customers.”
The six-month offer will also be made available to existing device owners. Customers who purchase other Samsung handsets (S5, Note 4, or A-Series) will also be offered free access to Google Play Music for a six-month period.
