Songza debuts new tablet UI for Android
Songza today announced that they have released a new version of the streaming music service which features a tablet-optimized interface. Available for free in the Google Play Store, Songza brings its Music Concierge feature to 7-inch and larger devices. If you haven’t had a chance to play with Songza then we certainly encourage you to check it out. Whereas most streaming music apps and services ask you what you want to hear, this one asks the user what they are doing.
Throwing a summertime party in the backyard? Doing some reading in the bedroom as you wind down the day? Just getting out of bed and need a little pick-me-up? Songza has a wonderful, growing selection of playlists to suit your needs. What’s more, you can also tell the app what kind of a mood you are in and ask it to play music based around your current state of mind. It’s great stuff, really. And it’s free.
