Samsung Galaxy S3 Music Hub takes on Apple iTunes

Music Hub will give users the opportunity to pay to stream their choice of over 19 million songs as well as allowing them to scan and match their entire home musical library to the Music Hub catalogue.

The service, which will initially only be available to Samsung Galaxy S3 owners, will be offered in both a free and a premium price plan which will cost users £9.99 per month. It will expand to other models, as well as Samsung's connected TVs in the future.

Under the free model Music Hub customers will have access to the store, allowing them to listen to a 30-second preview of any music track before deciding whether or not they want to purchase the track. However, under the premium plan users will be able to stream an unlimited number of tracks from Samsung's library as well as matching their entire home library to the system, letting them access their music on the move.

Samsung Senior Vice President, TJ Kang, claimed of the service: “When you ask yourself, ‘what do I want to listen to?’ there is now one simple answer, for every mood, every place and everyone.”

The service will also give Samsung customers music recommendations as well as the ability to create personalised radio stations, and the ability to play their music on any PC via a web based player. Mr Kang said that Samsung hoped to build an iOS app to allow users to access the service from an iPhone.

Daren Tsui, CEO of mSpot, the Samsung subsidiary responsible for streaming the music to the device said: "We believe that today’s mobile market must have an open mobile music system – one that offers all kinds of services across different devices. Music Hub removes all the barriers to your music.”

Although the Music Hub service has been hailed by Samsung as "the first completely integrated, all-in-one mobile music service," it joins a wealth of pre-existing mobile music services including Spotify, Google Play, and Apple's iTunes, iCloud and iTunes match services, which also gives users the option to scan and access their entire home music collection from anywhere in the world for only £21.99 a year. Samsung claims the combination of music locker, store and radio is unique.

Samsung has in the past come under criticism for allegedly copying many of Apple's designs and ideas. The two companies are currently involved in a series of patent infringement cases in various courts across the globe.
