In the wake of the official announcement and unveiling of the Galaxy S III there have been some other announcements made by Samsung that you should take interest in. For instance Samsung also announced that it will be bringing a Scan-and-Match feature to its Music Hub Subscription service. Similar to iTunes Match, this service will scan your hard drive for any and all music and if it matches a song from Samsung’s library in the cloud it will be accessible to you via the cloud. However there is one key difference between this feature and iTunes Match; Samsung’s feature is free where iTunes is a $24.99 per year charge.
Music Hub costs $9.99/month for one smart phone or tablet or $12.99/month for the ability to access the service from up to four devices and the web. One could argue that it’s not actually free as you have to pay the monthly fee but it’s important to note that there isn’t an additional cost for this feature. As the subscription service contains over 17 million tracks this Scan-and-Match feature sounds pretty good. The music service and this feature are available on any Galaxy S II or newer device, the Smart TV, Galaxy Tab, Smart Blu-ray player, smart home theatre systems or even through the good ol’ internet from your favorite browser. So if you are a user of Samsung’s Music Hub service you can expect to see this feature real shortly if not already. If you missed the full S III event and would love to see it then you’re in luck as we have it here for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
