Samsung’s Milk Music Internet radio service has been a pleasant, aesthetic experience from its inception. The nice edge-to-edge album covers, the way album covers fade into the background ever so slightly when accessing a side tab of your listening history and service settings, and the vibrant colors of the Milk Music service that are highlighted even more by Samsung’s Super AMOLED displays have all made the radio service an exciting one.
Samsung has made some changes with the service over the year, including updating Milk Music with a premium service (the old service became ad-supported), and by adding a “Fresh This Week” section for new music. A “Sports Guide” section now allows March Madness lovers to view sports scores and check sports schedules for their favorite teams. Milk Music not only looks good, but also provides useful features that keep you informed while feeding your music craving at the same time.
Today marks the one-year anniversary since Samsung’s introduction of Milk Music radio, and the company has decided to mark the radio service’s birthday by introducing a Web music player into the mix. Samsung device owners who currently have a Samsung account will be able to log into the Web streaming music player on any device (laptop, smartphone, tablet, smartwatch, Samsung TV). Our sources say that Samsung’s new Milk Music Web streaming player will be available at Samsung’s website for not just Samsung device owners but non-Samsung device owners as well.
When you enter the Milk Music Web player, you’re greeted with the familiar Milk Music app setup, so users will have no problems adjusting to the Web music player. There are play, skip, “heart” (to like or favorite a song), fine tune or customize a station options (to create your own), and settings options available at the bottom and top of the music player. The familiar dial that allows you to not only change stations but also switch back and forth between songs has been replaced with a line that allows you to now “slide” between stations and songs. The settings options found on Milk Music’s mobile setup return in the new Web setup.
Milk Music’s Web player now provides a cross-platform experience so that, no matter the device, you can access all your favorite stations (with all your settings intact) on the go. Samsung’s radio service has been superior to Apple’s iTunes Radio since it arrived on the mobile scene a year ago, and the new Web music player continues this proud tradition.
What are you waiting for? Go ahead and dive in. Music is an indelible part of humanity’s DNA. Happy birthday, Milk Music!
