Spotify has been a good go-to service for those listening to their favorite playlists on both desktop and mobile devices – but now it’s taking its tunes to the next level, with its recent debut on the PlayStation 4 console.

PlayStation Music, a new music destination which was announced a little while back on the PlayStation Blog, has been making the rounds for the past couple of weeks, with Spotify powering the service. It’s a change of pace from Sony’s previous Music Unlimited service, which featured direct purchases of songs that could only be played through certain menus, rather than in general. (That service shut down last month.)

With PlayStation Music, users not only have the option of listening to tunes while browsing through their favorite apps and PlayStation Store, but also while playing games. It’s simply a matter of activating their playlist through the PlayStation Music app, then switching over to their favorite game.

“We know how important music is to our community of gamers, and this partnership combines the best in music with the best in gaming,” said Eric Lempel, vice president of Sony Network Entertainment, on the partnership back in January. “PlayStation Network users will enjoy the convenience of linking your accounts to Spotify, making it easy to sign-up with your existing ID and subscribe to Spotify’s Premium service. You can also use Spotify while playing games on PS4, enabling you to soundtrack your gaming sessions with your favorite songs in the background.

“With more than 30 million songs and 1.5 billion playlists, Spotify on PlayStation Music has it covered. As we get closer to launch we look forward to telling you about some of the other great features that will be available exclusively through Spotify on PlayStation Music.”

So far, the service has been pleasing users, and our tests with the PlayStation Music app have been nothing short of successful, as we were easily able to test our favorite playlists during sessions of Axiom Verge, Destiny and other games, with hardly any interruption.

Sony intends to launch PlayStation Music for other devices as well, including PlayStation 3, Xperia smartphones and tablets. Those interested in learning more about the premium services available, as well as how easy it is to use the PlayStation Music app, can do so here {link no longer active}.
