The world of spatial informatics from Magic Leap is no longer limited to the thin tones of Sigur Rós and the Ambeo Augmented Audio app from Sennheiser. Now the entire music universe is within reach.
On Wednesday, Spotify launched its music app specially made for the Magic Leap One.
The app is available for Spotify Premium users, a service that allows users to listen to music anywhere, without ads, even when you are not online.
If you are not yet a Premium user, you can try the service for three months for free, after which it costs $ 9.99 a month for a single user.
Once you launch the app on the Magic Leap One, you can literally surround yourself with your favorite artists and playlists , all represented by old school album art, but hovering everywhere you capture it in augmented reality. Also, the ability to fix your music collection is not limited to your own specific location, you can also attach music selections to different rooms around your home or office.
The app was made possible in part by the Background Music Service (BMS), the Next Reality service was already on display in July. What that means is that you can now listen to your favorite music artists on Spotify while engaging in other interactions on the Magic Leap One.
Perhaps the only surprise here, given the well-known music obsession of the founder of Magic Leap Rony Abovitz. , is that it took so long before an app like Spotify finally entered the reality of spatial computing.
