Audiogalaxy Returns to Unleash Your MusicNew Music Service Offers a Free No Fuss Way of Discovering and Listening to Music via Any Browser or Mobile (March 06, 2012)
SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/06/12 -- The Audiogalaxy brand, once well known for its innovative music discovery and file sharing capabilities, today launched as a new music service. Built by industry veterans, the new Audiogalaxy allows people to access their music libraries from anywhere and discover music via Mixes. Mixes uses a new proprietary algorithm to play streams of recommended songs, from a catalog of millions, that users can customize by adding "ingredients" such as artists and cities.
"Our service offers music fans a tunable music experience -- play your own tracks anywhere without uploading, copying, or syncing, or lean back and start discovering music you don't own via Mixes," said Michael Merhej, Founder, Audiogalaxy.
Customers sign up at Audiogalaxy.com from the computer where their music is stored, install the Audiogalaxy Helper, and start streaming in minutes. Unlike other services that require weeks or months to upload music, Audiogalaxy simply scans songs (up to 200,000) and instantly streams them to other web browsers and the free Audiogalaxy iOS and Android apps. Audiogalaxy recognizes MP3, AAC, WMA, FLAC, OGG, and Apple Lossless audio files.
Through the Mixes feature, listeners go beyond their own collections to stream ad-free music curated from millions of songs and customized to their tastes. They can exclude specific artists, influence the variety of songs played, and indicate how often they want to hear repeats. Mixes can be shared with friends on Facebook or Twitter. Currently available in the US only, Mixes can be streamed at no cost on the Audiogalaxy website. In the free mobile apps, users can subscribe to Mixes for less than the price of a latte per month. New music that users discover can be purchased via direct links to Amazon's MP3 store.
"I've been using Mixes as a beta tester, and I listen to it every day," said Eric Garland, CEO of BigChampagne, an online media management company. "It's exciting to see innovation in this space, especially when the focus is on engaging fans."
Other Audiogalaxy features include the ability to pin songs on a mobile device for offline listening and a playlist genie that will automatically build playlists from the user's library based on a specific artist the user chooses, taking the hassle out of building lists song by song. New music can be purchased via the site from the Amazon MP3 store.
Based in Seattle, Washington, Audiogalaxy is an online music service that enables people to take all their music with them everywhere and to discover new music customized for their tastes. Audiogalaxy's proprietary technology is built by industry veterans to create a unique, hassle-free streaming experience for music fans everywhere. Audiogalaxy is available on the web and on the iOS and Android app stores. You can find out more and sign up for Audiogalaxy at www.audiogalaxy.com.
