The update also carried a slew of miscellaneous bug fixes, stability improvements and speed optimizations. The Prime Music application is now available in Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States. The app is available for all the Smart TVs Samsung has launched since 2015.
Samsung has been beefing up streaming content on its smart TVs. Amazon Prime Video is already available for some time now and the two Companies are collaborating on rolling out HDR10 Plus videos. Samsung also put in Facebook's video app into its TV line-up in February. Now with the integration of the Prime Music lets Samsung smart TV owners to browse recommendations, playlists, stations, and libraries directly on their TV using Samsung's One Remote. Amazon Music will also be available on Samsung audio devices such as soundbars and wireless speakers.
We earlier reported on Samsung's plan to launch its own AI speaker sometime next year. Music content is a big draw for AI speakers and Amazon Prime Music might be the music streaming service we would see in Samsung AI speakers. Samsung is planning to make all its smart appliances feature smart features, such as AI or voice recognition, by 2020. We all hope Samsung's vision of an AI world becomes a reality by 2020.
