Samsung announced today a new offering that will give owners of the Galaxy S21 phones free access to premium services from some of its partners. The new service is called Samsung Boost and it combines a number of paid apps that are available to Galaxy S21 users at no additional cost.
Boost is available both to new and existing customers in the UK and Ireland, with a wide selection of services meant for various activities like meditation, entertainment, fitness and more. Normally, the total cost for all of these services amounts to more than £250. Of course, these experiences complement the company's own set of services that are already available to customers when they purchase a Samsung device, such as Samsung Health, Samsung Pay, and SmartThings.
The partner services accessible through Boost include Adobe Spark Post, Photoshop Lightroom, Antstream Arcade, Calm Premium, Deezer HiFi, Fiit, Google Play Pass, Google Play Points, Readly, and YouTube Premium. The use of these apps isn't unlimited, however; Boost provides only up to six months of free access to the apps and this varies depending on the service.
In addition to the Galaxy S21 series, Samsung says it plans to expand the offering to its future flagship phones. The tech giant added that Boost is meant to give you a free taste of otherwise paid services without locking you into a long-term commitment.
Update: Galaxy S21 owners now also have access to four months of free high fidelity music on Deezer as part of Boost, marking £60 in savings, the streaming service told Neowin.
