Google acquires Beats Music service rival Songza

PanARMENIAN.Net - Google has bought Songza, adding the free streaming service to its Play Music portfolio, Digital Spy reveals.

Songza recommends various playlists based on time of day and mood or activity, and uses the slogan "Good music makes good times".

When announcing the deal on Tuesday (July 1), Google did not disclose the financial terms of its buy.

The move comes just after Apple bought the Beats Music service, which also creates playlists catering to users' mood along with expert music suggestions.

Google said that it has no plans to tinker with Songza, but the tech company does also own YouTube and a streaming integration could be in the works.

Songza is available online for free, without the interruption of audio ads, and has versions for Apple and Android-powered mobile devices, as well as Google's Chromecast.
