​Samsung’s Milk Music goes premium for $4 a month

No ads, high fidelity audio and offline listening are among the perks

Samsung's music streaming service is going premium at the competitive price of $4 a month.

A handful of features are made available to Milk Music users who go premium. The subscription places no limit on the number of tracks that can be skipped and it does away with advertisements altogether.

Music playback also benefits from an upgrade. Songs can be streamed in high quality audio and can be downloaded to a compatible smartphone/tablet/smartwatch for offline listening.

Samsung has not disclosed the specifications of its “high audio quality” and the number of stations that can be cached is limited at 25.

Samsung Australia launched Milk Music in February of 2015. “We are now introducing a premium service to give our customers access to high audio quality and the ability to enjoy music offline,” said Prasad Gokhale, vice president of Samsung’s mobile division.

Seventeen Galaxy devices have the market on Samsung’s streaming service. Following is a list of all compatible products, as per the official press release:

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
