Google announced that they’ve acquired music curation service Songza
For thoes of you who don’t know what Songza is and never tried it before, it’s a music curation service, that plays music based on your activity.
Wether you are running, Working out, Eating or in your car running a commute, Songza will find the “Perfect” music that you “Should” listen to.
From Songza’s post about the acquisition:
Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we’re becoming part of Google. We can’t think of a better company to join in our quest to provide the perfect soundtrack for everything you do. No immediate changes to Songza are planned, other than making it faster, smarter, and even more fun to use.
To be honest, i’ve never been a fan of music curation services, I don’t like to listen to someone else’s music, that’s never been my thing.
I do my own research, listen a little bit for a song, then I either like it or not, that’s how i roll.
I don’t like to put my fate in someone else’s hand, especially when it comes to music, because the taste is different from one person to another.
And to me it seems so odd that Google went for Songza instead of Rdio, Instead of acquiring a fully fledged music streaming service that do music on demand, they went for a music streaming service that plays song randomly.
