The first phone to get the new Samsung Music Hub is the Galaxy S3, and with these phones starting to reach consumers over the coming days and weeks, it might be a good time to brush up on what the Music Hub can do and how to use it.
If you’ve not seen the Samsung Galaxy S3 yet, where have you been living for the past month, you could take a quick look at the official TV commercial in the video below this article. In a nutshell the Music Hub gives users the ability to stream music directly to their Galaxy S3, and the selection is massive at around 19 million songs. This will cost the user £9.99 per month in the UK, although there is a free plan while you consider if you want to go premium or not.
This sounds a little like iTunes Match from Apple, which a walkthrough can be seen in the second video below, especially when you consider Samsung’s Music Hub will scan and match your entire music library, so it can be stored in the cloud. There will be an increasing amount of cloud music services over the next few years, in fact they are exploding right now, so you’ll have to find the service that works best for you. This might be given weight depending on the phone hardware and software you use, so in the case of the Samsung Galaxy S3 it’s Music Hub.
Samsung Music Hub will be everywhere – Samsung has stated that the Music Hub will not only come to more phone models in the coming months, but you should also expect it to appear on Samsung Connected TVs as well.
You can see a getting started screenshot above, which shows how you start with the Music Hub service, although for the full how to get started guide you should visit the official online portal found on samsung.com. Here you’ll find details for the discover menu, navigating through the Music Hub, using the search function, how to setup playlists, and much more.
