Songza music streaming service coming to Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8

Songza is a free music streaming and recommendation service, a bit like Nokia Music, with curated playlists, but also a bit more sophisticated, with the ability to recommends various playlists based on time of day and mood or activity.

songza_concierge_2Songza offers playlists for activities such as waking up, working out, commuting, concentrating, unwinding, entertaining, and sleeping. A bit like Pandora users can vote songs up or down, and the service will adapt to the user’s personal music preferences. Users can find playlists not just based on artists, songs, or genres, but also based on themes, interests, and eras, such as "songs in Apple Commercials", "90s One-Hit Wonders", and "Music of Fashion Week".

Hi Andrew.

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.

Thanks!

The news is more evidence of gathering support for Windows Phone, aided by Windows 8, and we look forwarding to seeing more and more of these niche apps showing up on our favourite OS.

Thanks Andrew for the tip.
