Joining the crowded ranks of Internet radio services like iTunes Radio and Pandora, Samsung has just announced the oddly-named Milk Music service, available only on Galaxy devices. The app, powered by Slacker Radio, is ad-free for the time being, but Samsung has said that this is for a limited time only.
If you have a Samsung Galaxy device, you can download Milk Music from the Play Store today. It works similarly to Pandora but with a fresh take on the user interface centered around a dial in the middle of the screen. Scrolling through the outer edge of the dial will allow you to quickly cycle through different genres of radio, and cycling through the inner edge allows you to scroll slower for specifics within a genre.
The app is currently available only in the US, but Samsung is expected to take it international eventually. You can fine tune each station to fit your tastes, as well as create custom stations and customize the dial with the stations you want.
With your Samsung Account, which you likely already have if you’re rocking a Galaxy device, all your information for the app stays synced across your devices, but since there is no Web version of Milk Music yet, it can really only stayed synced between your phone and tablet if both are Galaxy-branded.
What do you think of Milk Music? A strangely-named music app with a gimmicky dial, or a real game-changer? Let us know in the comments.
