Samsung has probably launched, bought, bought in and dropped more digital music services than any other brand. So it’s presumably no surprise to anyone that it’s done a brand new deal to make Google Play Music available to its mobile phone users.

“Google Play Music will be the default music player and music service on new Samsung phones and tablets globally”, the web giant announced last week. “We’re also collaborating with Samsung to create special features in Google Play Music just for Samsung customers”.

One such special feature is an expanded digital locker service for Samsung users. If you’ve just got yourself a new Samsung phone, you can upload 100,000 songs for free to listen back to online at your leisure. You’re all still uploading your music to digital lockers, yes?

Google Play Music will also work with Samsung’s voice assistant, Bixby. So you’ll just have to shout “Bixby, turn this fucking shit off and put something better on” at your phone and all will be well. Possibly. You probably shouldn’t have uploaded 100,000 tracks to the cloud in the first place, given that you had so much fucking shit in there.

Anyway, Google is “THRILLED to bring this special version of Google Play Music to Samsung customers anywhere”. I hope you’re also excited.
