Samsung has unveiled Friday its own music streaming service. Milk Music is available for free, does not have advertisements, and does not require users to log in to use the radio service.

The service rivals Apple’s iTunes Radio, which is available for free with ads and sans advertisement for a one-time purchase of $24.99 via iTunes Match service. It also competes with ad-supported free music streaming services like Spotify and Pandora.

The application is available through Google Play and works with Samsung Galaxy devices. However, the South Korean company is considering to make Milk Music available to competing mobile devices. The service is initially available in the United States and will be expanded worldwide in the coming weeks.

Milk Music features 200 radio stations and 13 million songs. It also contains a jukebox function, wherein users can create customized stations based on their preferred artists and genres. The app works with Samsung’s AllShare feature, which streams music to TV sets and other Samsung devices. The service does not allow buying the tracks just yet, but the idea is being considered, according to Samsung Media Solution’s Vice President of Music Daren Tsui.
