Samsung Music with a View

Samsung’s audio offerings are different but no less exciting. The global technology giant is adding Apple Music to its TV platform. Users will now have access to millions of songs, playlists, and music videos. 

“Our goal has always been to deliver the best entertainment experiences to consumers – and as people spend more time at home, we are more committed to that mission than ever,” states Salek Brodsky, vice president of strategic partnerships and business development for Samsung Electronics. “Last year, we were the first TV manufacturer to offer the Apple TV app, and today, we are the first to offer Apple Music.”

Apple Music is available through Samsung smart TV models 2018 through 2020. The Apple Music trial is available for free through Samsung’s Smart TV App Store. Users can download the service and sign-in with their existing Apple ID account. 

Subscribers can get customized daily recommendations and have access to exclusive shows curated by Nicki Minaj, The Weeknd, Frank Ocean, and more. The service also includes access to “At Home With Apple Music” streaming in editorial playlists, interviews, and even group FaceTime chats with artists at home. 

Stay Home, Stay Connected

Sonos and Samsung invite you to experience audio in new ways while staying home. As we continue to ride out the pandemic, for now, we can stay connected and expand our minds. Music moves the soul; here’s another way to keep moving forward.

Responsive Living, the term coined by Acoustic Architects founders, Aaron Flint and Spencer Hauldren, is the concept of seamlessly enhancing the client’s unique lifestyle using smart home technology. Responsive Living allows you to interact with your space via touch input, voice command, and predictive automation, placing you in full control of your home.
