Feeling the heat from the competition, Sony Network Entertainment International has announced that high quality streaming is now available on its Music Unlimited service.
If you don’t mind burning your data plan faster, you can turn on the high quality streaming option in the service’s settings. By high quality, it means you can enjoy listening to the songs in 320 kbps AAC format. While this might be old news for Spotify customers, it’s quite an upgrade for Sony’s, as it previously only supported 48 kbps streams.
For now, the high quality streaming is only available on PC, PlayStation 3, and Android. Sony said that the new feature will come to more platforms soon.
Sony’s digital music service, launched in July of last year, now boasts a collection of over 18 million songs. The premium subscription plan is offered at $9.99 per month in the U.S. If you use the service on your Android phone or tablet, make sure to head to Google Play to get the latest update that enables the high quality streaming.
