Spotify launches on LG Smart platform

Spotify subscribers can now enjoy the music-streaming service on a selection of LG Smart devices from next month.

Via the LG Smart platform, Spotify Premium account holders will be able to download and enjoy their music using the new LG Spotify app.

Like the other versions of the Spotify app, the LG Smart platform offering means users can discover new music within the vast Spotify library, create their own personalised Spotify radio channels and playlists and share their new favourite tracks on Twitter or Facebook.

“LG’s Smart Platform provides unparalleled choice for consumers and the addition of Spotify demonstrates LG’s continued commitment to growing the brand’s Smart offering for consumers,” said Head of Marketing at LG Consumer Electronics UK, Craig West. “We are confident that LG Smart media owners will enjoy these latest services, as well as the fantastic updates we have planned for the rest of the year.”

The Spotify app will be available on a selected range of LG’s 2013 audio and visual line-up from April. Selected models include the company’s latest selection of home theatre systems and Blu-Ray players.

“It’s our mission to make all the world’s music available instantly to everyone, everywhere, so we’re delighted to partner with LG to make our music service available on their smart media devices,” said Kate Opekar, Director of Hardware Business Development at Spotify. “Spotify wants to be at the heart of the home entertainment experience, so it’s a natural fit to make our music service available on blu-ray players and home cinema systems.”

The 2013 LG Smart audio visual range already offers access to catch-up TV services like BBC iPlayer, Netflix and LoveFilm as well as social media sites like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter among other services.

Along with the LG Smart platform availability, Spotify can be found on Android, iOS, Windows Phone 8, PC and Mac platforms.
