Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy Note 9, the Galaxy Watch and the Galaxy Home smart speaker. The South Korean company also revealed yesterday that it has partnered with Spotify to bring its music streaming service to all of its devices, including its Family Hub refrigerators.

“Since Spotify’s inception, we’ve studied how people use Spotify. We know that listeners stream different kinds of music at different times, in different places, and most importantly, on different devices,” Spotify CEO Daniel Ek said. “We think music should be easy to access on all of your devices—and we want it to be seamless to switch from one device to another.”

The Samsung and Spotify partnership also means that users who have multiple Samsung devices can seamlessly continue listening to their playlists from one device to another. For example, a user who is listening to a song on their Galaxy smartphone outside their home may continue listening to the same song on their smart TV or the Galaxy Home smart speaker when they get home, as explained by Android Authority.

Another perk here is that Spotify will be readily available to install when users get their brand-new Samsung Galaxy phone. During the initial setup of a handset, the Spotify app will be available to download and install. For Samsung smart TVs, users will soon be able to control their Spotify music playback using the SmartThings app on their Galaxy smartphone or tablet.

The partnership also means that Spotify will be fully integrated to Bixby, Samsung’s digital assistant. When a user asks Bixby to play a specific song, the assistant will automatically play the track from Spotify. Bixby will also search for the song through Spotify even if the user currently doesn’t have an account on the streaming service.

So, why did Spotify decide to partner with Samsung? The music streaming service’s CEO explained that Samsung has already released a wide range of devices that can help Spotify deliver its services across the globe.

“Samsung makes devices for every aspect of our lives – everything from smartphones and TVs, to tablets, speakers, and watches. And we have designed Spotify to deliver personalized music to consumers around the world – wherever they are, across millions of devices,” Ek explained.

“This partnership with Samsung reduces the friction for users to get Spotify up and running on multiple Samsung devices once the accounts have been linked. It allows us to create a seamless music listening experience together for the user that would be hard for either of us to build alone. It’s a great fit,” the CEO added.
