Songza (www.songza.com) has revealed that the company is working on a Windows app, but more importantly a Windows Phone app thereafter. But what is Songza exactly? It's a free music streaming and recommendation service for the US. Playlists are claimed to be created by music experts and the service recommends various playlists based on time of day and mood or activity.
Consumers can enjoy relevant tunes for activities such as waking up, working out, commuting, concentrating, unwinding, entertaining, and sleeping. Users can vote songs up or down, and the service will adapt to the user's personal music preferences. Playlists are not restricted to artists, songs, or genres, but also based on themes, interests, and eras (such as "90s One-Hit Wonders"). It's quite the music service.
Already sporting an app for both iOS and Android, Songza is yet to tackle Microsoft's mobile platform, and since there's a number of alternatives available (Xbox Music, Nokia Music, etc.) it would be interesting to see an app launched for music lovers. The following is an official response a Windows Phone Central reader received when contacting the service regarding a Windows Phone app:
"Thanks for writing in! We are currently working on a Windows 8 app and hope to work on a Windows 8 phone app shortly there after. Thanks so much for the interest and stay tuned for future updates."
So while an app will not be coming out tomorrow, it's positive to have on record Songza working on not only a Windows 8 app, but sporting plans for Windows Phone too. We'll keep our eyes open for details that may surface. Good news should you be looking forward to an official solution. We'll be looking forward to see Songza expand further and cover more markets.
Thanks, Andrew, for the tip!
