Last year, Samsung announced a partnership with Spotify that would see the former integrate the latter’s services into more of its products. Today, Samsung is expanding upon the friendship by pre-installing Spotify on a number of its phones.
According to the company, “millions” of Samsung phones will soon ship with Spotify pre-installed. This includes the entire Galaxy S10 family, the Galaxy Fold, and some members of the Galaxy A series. Considering the endless amount of bloatware Samsung includes on its phones, this new inclusion might go over pretty easy with consumers, especially since many of them probably already have Spotify.
Speaking of which, if you don’t have a Spotify account, Samsung wants you to sign up. That’s why with the purchase of a Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, or S10e, the company will give you six free months of Spotify Premium. You won’t be able to take advantage of this deal if you’re already subscribed to Premium or you’ve had a free trial in the past. Regardless, this promotion’s pretty sweet and should be taken advantage of, even if you cancel right after signing up.
Today’s announcement won’t be the last we hear from Spotify and Samsung. With the latter releasing even more products in the future including the Galaxy Home, we’re guaranteed to see the former pop up on more tech products soon.
