Spotify launches new Samsung smart TV app for free users

New, 10 comments

(For 2015 and 2016 TVs only)

Spotify is launching a new-and-improved app for Samsung smart TVs, promising both paid and free users a better way to access music. The app itself isn't that interesting, but the fact that Spotify's making it available to free users is.

Spotify, of course, is available on all sorts of devices, including phones, tablets, and streaming sticks like Roku, Google's Chromecast, and others. However, it often limits access to apps on TVs to paid Premium subscribers only. Now users on the free-tier can get in on the action too — if they have a Samsung smart TV from 2015 or 2016. They'll still have to put up with ads and all the other limitations placed on free users, but hey, you can get decent music on your TV now.

For more information on which devices support Spotify for free (like Android TV), and which are only for paid subscribers, you can head over to the music service's support page.
