Play.me Announces Music ‘Caching’ Android App for US

Recently launched digital music service, Play.me,  has announced an Android app which gives users the ability to temporarily save playlists directly to their phone.   The current browser-based setup allows for instant access to over 2.5 million songs, custom playlists and radio stations for streaming and sharing through social networks.

Play.me enables music fans to quickly find and play all the songs they love from a comprehensive, continually updated catalog and find new artists with Play.me’s discovery tools, including similar artist suggestions, new releases, and dynamic commercial-free radio stations which can be instantly created based on genre, artist, and decade. – press release

The Play.me Android app, touted as a “first of its kind in the US market”  allows users to temporarily save playlists directly to their phone for uninterrupted playback should a cell phone/WiFi connection be lost.  This would come in handy for jet-setters and daily commuters who often find themselves on the subway.

Play.me should fill the void here in the US while we wait for Spotify licensing issues to be resolved.  Play.me offers consumers both a $9.99 premium monthly subscription service as well as a free trial version with limited streaming capabilities and complimentary downloads.
