Google has launched an exclusive Play Music feature for the Galaxy S8


Last updated: June 19th, 2017 at 08:02 UTC+02:00

If you cast your mind back to April, you may recall that Google announced it had teamed up with Samsung to give Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ customers who use Play Music, which is the default audio player on the handsets, a couple of extra perks to enhance their music-listening experience.

Despite being relatively minor, the perks were actually pretty useful: users could upload 100,000 songs to their virtual locker instead of the usual 50,000, and were eligible for a free three-month trial of Play Music All Access. Now, however, the firm has released an exclusive feature for the devices.

It’s called New Release Radio and — you guessed it — is a personalized mix of the freshest songs — but it’s not really the groundbreaking ‘feature’ we were hoping for. After all, it’s just a radio station that Google could quite easily deliver to every user, and probably will in the future.
