Sony enters partnership with Spotify

According to the U.S. PlayStation Blog, Sony Network Entertainment Vice President Eric Lempel has confirmed the news that Spotify would be replace Sony own music streaming service Music Unlimited. Music unlimited has been on Sony’s consoles for years now, but it never really gained any traction from music streaming fans.

Spotify lets you queue up songs in the background while playing games, and with over 30 million songs and over 1.5 billion playlists readily available, Sony partnering with Spotify sure is a good deal for PlayStation users.

The service would be first rolled out for the PS3 and PS4 and then roll onto other Sony products such as the Sony Xperia phones and tablets. The PlayStation Vita, which will remove it YouTube support in this coming march, seems to have been left out in the announcement.

Music Unlimited will close in all 19 countries on March 29, 2015, but no word yet on when exactly Spotify will launch on Sony’s platforms.
