Spotify's streaming service arrives on Sony's PlayStation MusicSpotify brings streaming music and playlists to your PlayStation console, and you can control it all from your phone.
[MUSIC] Hey, I'm Nate Ralph and we're here in Spotify's office in San Francisco to check out Spotify on Playstation Music. Now the service is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. It brings Spotify to your PlayStation four or PlayStation 3 console. Now, what does that mean? It allows you to bring in entire Spotify catalogue, all of your playlists, all of the music you might listen to, all the featured playlists that Spotify curates. Brings it all to the Playstation. Now that of course means you can fire up a Spotify app and listen to the music on your console. But more importantly, to me at least, it also means you can play Spotify music while you're in the game. Just press the home button. The game will pause and you'll be able to control your music directly from a menu bar. You can pause the music. You know, crank the volume up a little bit. Or switch tracks if you're in the mood for something different. [MUSIC] Of course, picking up your IOS or Android device would probably be a little easier. If you're running the Spotify app, you can just connect it to your Playstation, and have, as you'd expect, full control over the entire listening experience. Spotify on Playstation music will be available on March. March 30th. You don't need to be a Playstation plus subscriber, and if you're not a Spotify subscriber, you can subscribe to the Spotify free service. You are going to get some ads. If you are a Spotify premium subscriber or you want to subscribe, you can get access to all the Spotify premium features like higher bitrate when you're playing music and offline capabilities. And that's Spotify on Playstation music. I'm Nate Ralph, be sure to read more of our coverage on CNet, thanks for watching.
