Samsung to take on Amazon and iTunes by making Music Hub available for all

In addition to rolling out its cloud-based Music Hub service to all Samsung devices, the Korean firm is set to offer music downloads and streaming to non-Samsung users.

Music Hub combines a user’s own library with Spotify-esque streaming, radio and discovery features.

The current version of Music Hub is a result of Samsung’s acquisition of mSpot, and could serve as an alternative to Amazon’s download service as well as iTunes.

Whether it could ever become as popular as iTunes seems a bit of a stretch, but let’s not forget that one in four smartphone sales in 2012 were Samsung devices, so there’s certainly a lot of fans out there who would be willing to try the new service out.

Although currently only available on the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2, TJ Kang, SVP for Samsung Media Services has revealed that expanding the service to all Samsung devices, as well as a variety of hardware from other manufacturers is on the cards.
