samsung-milk-music-streaming-service

Samsung this morning announced that their Milk Music streaming service is now available in Australia as an exclusive for owners of Samsung devices.

The service, powered by Slacker, offers free access to a large number of streaming radio stations and its dial-based interface allows you to fine-tune your preferences within a number of categories. There are also Spotlight stations that feature trending and specially-curated music playlists. Of interest to us locally will be the addition of the “Australian” section on the dial, offering Pop, Electronic, Indigenous, Hip Hop, Rock, Country, 80’s and more.

The app can be downloaded from either Google Play or Samsung’s own Galaxy Apps store. Settings and listening preferences are synced through your Samsung account, but it doesn’t require one to use. There’s a fairly relaxed list of devices – basically anything newer than a Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Tab 4 and the Gear S can get in on the action.

Milk is free to download and use, but a “Premium” $3.99/month subscription tier was added in the US in the middle of 2014. Premium subscriptions allow you to skip songs as often as you like, download music for offline playback and more. Samsung’s made no mention made of the Premium service tier in relation to the Australian launch, though.

The app was not found in the store. 🙁

Are you checking out Milk Music? Tell us what you think of the new service in the comments.

Before discovering the Nexus One, Jason thought he didn't need a smartphone. Now he can't bear to be without his Android phone. Jason hails from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane depending on his mood and how detailed a history you'd like. A web developer by day with an interest in consumer gadgets and electronics, he also enjoys reading comics and has a worryingly large collection of Transformers figures. He'd like to think he's a gamer, but his Wii has been in a box since he moved to Sydney, and his PlayStation Vita collection is quite lacking. Most mornings you'll find him tilting at various windmills on Twitter - follow @JM77 and say hi!

Check your account location, your address is probably india. It isn’t the credit card it is your contact details

When you’re in Google Play, the currency is AUD?

Try clearing the app data in the Application manager. I use to use the US version with Hola VPN. If I forgot to use the VPN it would location error. The only way to use it again, even with VPN, was to clear the data.
It also uses your Samsung log in. Check your Samsung account details for the address etc.
Hope this helps. It’s a great music app.

Samsung managed an even worse name for their music service than Google. They did the impossible.

It’s a great service. I’ve been using the U S version for a number of years and love it. A great app and great selection. Highly recommended.

There’s precedent. Nokia MixRadio, only for Windows.
