Spotify now available on PS3 and PS4

31 Mar 2015

The long awaited Spotify app is now available for you to use on the PS3 and PS4. 

Spotify is the exclusive partner for PlayStation Music and it includes over 30 million songs and 1.5 billion playlists. For PS4 owners, they can now stream their favourite songs while playing video games too. If you don't like the music in a certain PS4 game, you can now just go on Spotify and listen to your own playlist.  

Spotify for PlayStation Music is really easy to set-up. You can use your exisiting account, or make a new one. The service is free, or you can upgrade to the paid Spotify Premium service if you don't want to listen to any advertisements. You also don't need to be a PlayStation Plus subscriber to use Spotify. Any user can use it. 

The Spotify app should show up on the main menus of the PS4 and PS3 consoles. All you need to do is download the app (only 9MB) and you can start listening to your favourite songs. 

Spotify features on PlayStation includes:

●        Soundtrack your game. With background listening on PlayStation 4 (PS4) system, you can soundtrack your gaming sessions with your favourite tracks. You might die a few times at the hands (or claws) of memorably terrifying monsters in the critically-acclaimed action RPG Bloodborne, so why not do it to the music of your choice? Upbeat pop, thumping hip-hop, soothing classical...with over 30 million tracks, we’ve got you covered either way.

●      On-demand music for everyone. Enjoy all of your favourite tunes on-demand. Pick one of your favourites from Your Music or Browse to find the perfect playlist for every mood and moment. We’ve even got a set of new gaming playlists for you.

●      No need to pause. Spotify Connect lets you skip tracks or turn up the music using your mobile device or tablet, without ever having to interrupt your gaming experience.
