Samsung just announced the purchase of mSpot, a streaming music that lets you upload your music to the cloud and stream it to your smartphone or tablet.

It’s a very similar experience to Google Music and Amazon Cloud Player. mSpot gives you 5 GB of free storage, but you can pay for more.

Samsung says it’ll pre-install mSpot in future smartphones and tablets.

Consider this a blow to Google’s music product.

As we’ve heard before, Samsung and other Android manufacturers have been looking for ways to distance themselves from Google since the Motorola acquisition.
