Samsung Milk hits Samsung devices giving Samsung mobile users access to music at its finest. The service may be comparable to Apple's iTunes and Beats Beat Music but focuses more on streaming especially on giving Samsung mobile users access to over 200 stations. The application is already available on Google Play for download.

Milk Music is powered by Slacker. The app uses a dial design that does not require the user to know the artist name or the song name to listen to music. Users can just turn the dial on and hit the play.

Samsung believes that music is an important part of the life of most mobile device users.

The service name, Milk, is a representation of Samsung's fresh and innovative take in music. The service features are easy to use and more edgy addressing issues that other music platform service of the same kind are lacking according to Daren Tsui, Vice President of Music Services, at Samsung's Media Solutions Center.

The release of the new music platform set the competition in heat. A Pocket-lint article compared Milk Music to apple's iTunes in terms of availability, advertisement and functionality. According to the post, Milk and iTunes Radio have limited availability due to record labels issues. Milk is available in US while iTunes is available in US and Australia. Milk is Ad free while iTunes Radio is working on iAds. While Music Milk can give you a variety of songs with over 200 stations to choose from, iTunes Radio has the capability for users to like and favorite the station and music.

Milk is available for Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 mini, Galaxy Mega and Galaxy Note II users. The music app will soon be available on Galaxy S5.

The leading mobile company promises to bring customers quality mobile technology through innovation year after year. Samsung Milk is just one of the innovations of the Samsung will release this year.
