Spotify PlayStation Music PS4 PS3

Looks like PlayStation France got itself in a muddle, as Spotify is available on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, er, right now. The streaming application – which you'll find on your console's dashboard – is about 10MB in size, and is exclusive to Sony's systems for the time being. How long will things remain that way? "For the foreseeable," Murray Pannell, a SCEUK marketing director told at a preview event we totally weren't invited to last week. First world problems.

The app's available in 41 regions at the moment, including the UK and North America. Apparently, the platform holder sneakily included it in the PS4's recent firmware update – without telling anyone. It's well integrated into the hardware, too, allowing you to stream music to your machine while you're playing games on the Japanese giant's next-gen machine. All of the community features – including creating and sharing playlists – are present and correct as well.

The really nifty thing is that both the Free and Premium options will be available, and the library will be identical across the PC and PlayStation. Sure, that means no Taylor Swift – but the other 30 million songs in the service's library should fill that particular Blank Space. If you do want to pod up a few pennies, the Premium offering – which includes higher-quality streaming for starters – will set you back £9.99/$9.99 per month. Not bad at all, huh?

Also, it's worth noting that if you had an active Music Unlimited account as of 29th March, you'll be getting two free months of service. We'll be bringing you plenty more Spotify coverage throughout the day, so stay tuned for more on this exciting addition to the PlayStation Music platform. In the meantime, let us know what you'll be streaming in the comments section below.
