Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (005930) launches ad-free radio service called Milk

Posted Mar 7, 2014

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (KRX:005930) has entered the streaming music market with a bang. Samsung’s music service is called Milk and is available exclusively for Galaxy devices. Milk has 200 genre-based radio stations with access to around 13 million songs.

The app is powered by Slacker, a radio app that is pre-programmed into several types of Android phones. Galaxy users can download the Milk app for free. You do not need to sign up for an account — all you have to do is just open the app and pick the station.

Why the name Milk? Samsung told Business Insider that it wanted the music experience to be rich and fresh. The app should make you feel satisfied and “warm and fuzzy” like when you finish a tall glass of milk.
