Samsung Launches Streaming Music Service Milk Music In South Korea

September 23, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

You can find plenty of different streaming music apps on Android now, and one of the latest to hit the scene which was just released earlier this year was Samsung’s streaming music service called Milk Music. The app and service was announced alongside the Galaxy S5 which was unveiled at CES back in January(which almost seems like a lifetime ago)and has been receiving good reviews from users it seems like since its been available so far here in the U.S. market.

Oddly enough, Samsung never launched Milk Music in South Korea, which is the home base of operations for the manufacturer and usually they launch the best parts of their offerings there, with the Galaxy S5 LTE-A being a perfect example. Although we have no idea why Samsung would hold off on bringing Milk Music to the region, a likely scenario could be that they were waiting to see the demand of the service in South Korea before making it available to users. Although there was no confirmation or announcement that Samsung would be bringing Milk Music to users in South Korea, SamMobile has gotten a hold of a screenshot from a reader which appears to show off the app running on a South Korean Samsung device, as the image displays the countries native language for all the text on the Play Store page for the app.

Assuming that the service is now live over there, we could expect that it offers the same features as the version of Milk Music we have here in the states, although there were no details that came along with the image so it’s possible that users of the application in that region may or may not have the subscription option for the app. Initially, Milk Music is free for users to stream music from various channels and they can skip tracks from a large library of music, all without having to pay a monthly fee. The subscription service of the app though lets users skip as many tracks as they like, and it also carries offline playback, which can be a useful feature for times when you have no data. Are there any readers in South Korea that are currently using Milk Music? What about readers here? Do you use Milk or do you prefer Play Music All Access or another service like Spotify?
