Galaxy S10 and other new phones to come with Spotify pre-installed

A long-term partnership between Samsung and Spotify was announced at the Galaxy Note 9 event last year. Spotify was selected as Samsung’s go-to music service across all its devices. This partnership is now being extended.

The Galaxy S10 series and other upcoming devices from Samsung will come with Spotify pre-installed. Spotify is also offering six months of its Premium subscription for free to customers of select Samsung devices. However, there are quite a few caveats for this promotion.

Spotify will be pre-installed on new Samsung devices

The Spotify app will now be pre-installed on millions of new Samsung devices globally. This includes the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10 5G. The new Galaxy A series and even the Galaxy Fold will come with the music streaming app pre-installed.

Eligible customers with a new Galaxy S10 handset will get six months of Spotify Premium for free. One caveat is that this promotion is only for customers in the United States. Furthermore, if you were previously a Premium subscriber, still are or have even used a free trial of the service, you can’t get six months for free.

The terms and conditions mention that this six-month trial offer is “available for a limited period only.” So if you meet the conditions then it would be best to sign up for this quickly. Do keep in mind that once the trial period ends, you will automatically be charged the then-current monthly price of Spotify Premium. You will have to manually cancel prior to the end of the free trial if you don’t want that to happen.

Like Samsung phones aren’t already crippled by an overwhelming amount of bloatware we needed one more on that list… They are learning nothing from people’s feedback.

Why are people so anti-disable!? It does the exact same thing as uninstalling it but jus keeps the apk on the system somewhere. And with 128GB of internal storage as a minimum. People need to stop complaining about “bloat”. If you don’t want it. Disable it. I don’t use Spotify but I’m not offended if I have to disable it!

I don’t get it either. I just disable all the bloatware on all of my Samsung android devices, if I can’t uninstall them. Personally I don’t see the point in people streaming music to their device, when they can download the actual files and play them directly on their devices.

Totally a waste app in India. It doesn’t have all songs and doesn’t even play many songs. I’ve wasted my money purchasing the premium.

I’d rather see a proper Galaxy Watch app from Spotify. The actual one is useless, at this moment it doesn’t even allow to remote control, says it’s not connected to the phone and it was updated maybe twice, last time many months ago. Especially after they removed LED notification icon and wearing a smartwatch makes more sense now.

Hey man, I had the same thing. Yesterday I found out you can control spotify and any other music app from the music app ON YOUR WATCH. If you open that, you can choice what one you want to control…

This is utterly absurd, even for them. Why would they ship their phones worldwide with Spotify preinstalled if Spotify only works in North America?
What income would they gain from us non-US users by pre-installing Spotify without the ability to uninstall it? They would just lose money by doing that, or so it seems…
The way Samsung has been going for the last 2 years (not just with software) makes me and many other people consider buying a Chinese phone

They should also give us the freedom to uninstall bloat. Especially if they expect us to pay stupid money for the device that isn’t gonna be consistently updated in the next few months.

I don’t use spotify, why should it come preinstalled? I hope it can be uninstalled not just disabled.

I don’t use front camera, never. And I can’t remove it

That’s completely different. You can download and install spotify if you want to. You can’t download and install a front facing camera.

10 years anniversary, more preinstalled bloatware. Well, at least that’s coherence
