Galaxy S8/S8+ owners get an exclusive ‘New Release Radio’ station in Google Play Music


When Samsung unveiled its Galaxy S8 flagship devices this year, it also made official that it was going to scrap its Music app and exclusively use Google Play Music in its products. In a press release at the time, Sammy announced that Galaxy S8 and S8+ users would benefit from smart music recommendations, tailored playlists and other niceties, thanks to its partnership with Google.

It now seems that owners of the latest Galaxy S phones are beginning to ‘tune into’ an exclusive Google Play Music feature, called New Release Radio. Don’t get overly excited, though, as there’s nothing too extraordinary about it.

The feature represents a daily updated selected list of songs that are specific to each user, and contain a mix of newly released tracks – basically a Google-made tracks list, based on your music preferences. The feature has already become available to S8 users and seems accessible through a desktop version of the app.

The feature is nothing to boast about, but is indeed yet another point on the list of exclusive features, offered to Samsung customers. Galaxy S8 and S8+ owners are also able to upload up to 100,000 songs to their virtual library, instead of the regular 50,000 allowance and receive three months of free Play Music All Access subscription.

This news comes just a few weeks after Google announced an additional free month to new subscribers to its Play Music service, on top of the regular three free months. If you haven’t given it a go, you can now try Play Music, even if you don’t own a shiny S8 phone, and get a month off.
