milk-music-gs3-miniSamsung’s Milk Music was presented to the masses earlier this March, where it came across as a fully free music service that remained exclusive to its devices. However, it was eventually revealed that this will come to an end, as nothing remains free for life. Users will still be able to stream tunes without having to fork out a single cent sans ads, but the latest Milk Music update would include a $3.99 monthly subscription if you would like to enjoy extra features that come alongside this update.

Prior to upgrading, however, one would first need to sign in with a Samsung account in order to have the choice of upgrading. Those who decide to do so will have to input the relevant credit card details. While some have raised the possibility of using the Play Store subscription system for added convenience, this would also mean Samsung will have to provide Google with a cut – which is most probably something that Samsung is not too reluctant to do. Of course, those who continue to make use of the limited version of Milk Music need not go through such a process.

Do you think that $3.99 a month is worth for the following features and benefits? Being able to listening to stations without a network connection, to receiving unlimited song skips, the turning on/off of station DJ commentary, and pausing the app thanks to Sleep Timer.
