The future of music streaming on the GALAXY Note II

Like Spotify and Rdio, there's the option to sync tracks for offline use, so you can listen to them on your Note II without a web or mobile connection.

The future and the musical elephants in the corner

Of course, other big players also have streaming services if going with a smaller name isn't your thing. Amazon's Cloud Player works in much the same way as Google Play Music, with tracks bought from the retailer's MP3 store, and those you've already stashed there from your PC's library, available to stream wherever and whenever.


It's all done from the free Amazon MP3 app and means you can keep local space free on your Note II for any other add-ons you fancy downloading.

While all these packages are great right now, the mobile music scene is moving along so quickly that there's plenty of exciting new offerings to look forward to.

Google is said to be priming its own Spotify-style streaming service, which would certainly tie-in nicely with all Android phones and look spot-on on the GALAXY Note II.

Plus, key rival Apple is also said to be readying its own package, dubbed iRadio, this summer, with industry insiders recently intimating that deals with the major labels are edging ever closer to fruition.

Finally, Spotify is also said to be in negotiations to offer at least part of its Premium mobile offering for free. That would mean users currently on their ad-supported, desktop-only package could download the Spotify app and perhaps grab a select number of tunes on-the-go.


The obvious money-spinning idea here is to get more people handing over cash for a Premium subscription, but the suggestion of free streaming like this is pretty exciting for any hardcore music fan living on a shoestring.

What is clear is that when you have a GALAXY Note II, the streaming options are myriad. You can access services to stream millions of new tunes, listen to your own collection without fronting up any more cash for apps or new music or simply check out web radio and broaden your musical mind.

More excitingly, this is the future of the entire music industry. That means more developments coming your way soon and plenty of choice when it comes to deciding which service gets some of your much-coveted mobile storage space.
