SPOTIFY has acquired Swedish-based TUNIGO, which offers a music discovery app. CNET reports, "TUNIGO's app tries to help people discover music by offering playlists picked by its own editorial staff mixed in with songs from its own users. The app is available on SPOTIFY itself and via APPLE's App Store. A private beta is also available for ANDROID users."
"The acquisition fits into our overall strategy around music discovery ... basically helping our users make sense of over 20 million tracks," a SPOTIFY spokesman told CNET. "Their app will remain on SPOTIFY and their team will be moving to the SPOTIFY offices in STOCKHOLM and NEW YORK."
