Samsung introduces free streaming radio service

NEW YORK (AP) — Samsung is unveiling a new free music service for its phones.

The South Korean gadget maker says its Milk Music service includes over 200 stations and 13 million songs.

The app is designed to be easy to use and highly customizable, but it enters an already crowded space. There are numerous streaming music services, including Pandora, Spotify and Apple Inc.'s iTunes Radio.

Samsung says that while it recognizes the competitive landscape, it also sees room for improvement in the services that are already available.

The company's app, which can now be downloaded from Google Play, won't include advertising, but only works on Samsung's Galaxy line of phones.
