Samsung plans to make Music Hub available for non-Samsung devices, pitting it against Google and Amazon
Samsung has big plans for its cloud-based Music Hub offering. In addition to rolling it out across the company’s own range of connected devices, the intention is to then expand it more widely to support hardware by other manufacturers too, the company tells us. Music Hub is a cloud-based service combining a user’s own library with Spotify-style streaming, radio and discovery features.
It’s essentially a rival to traditional music stores, online radio, streaming services and cloud locker services all in one package. It’s currently only available on the Samsung Galaxy S III and Note II, but TJ Kang, SVP for Samsung Media Services told The Next Web today that the plan to expand its availability goes beyond just the company’s own hardware.
