Playmysong has been on a roll. Since July of last year, the web and mobile based jukeboxes have opened up in 32,000 location, and currently around 50 businesses in Helsinki are using Playmysong, including restaurants, cafes, and even a gym. On the business side Playmysong has a partnership with Mood Media, the largest distributor of music for small businesses in Europe. This means it’s super simple for Mood Media customers to add Playmysong to their locations, and it helps Playmysong scale up sales.
One big change that’s come out with today’s Android release is the ability for party hosts to un-restrict the playlists the jukeboxes are attached to. So instead of letting party guests just choose songs from your playlist, you can open up your guests to the whole Spotify library. It sounds like a risky proposition (depending on the crowd you’re with) but is a fun feature.
An additional feature is that you can see Playmysong jukeboxes on a map, allowing you to find the nearest party and explore music in your city.
Today they’ve launched their updated Android app, which brings the look and feel into line with their recently updated iPhone app. Here it’s easier to find nearby venues using Playmysong, and finding and adding tracks is a smoother process. In the future they’re going to move more social by placing a greater emphasis on the people that chose the music, and also make it easier for bars and venues to visualize upcoming requests on a screen.
It’s becoming more and more of a mature product, so check out Playmysong the next time you’re at a bar with a Playmysong sticker. Better yet, let’s throw a party at your house tonight.
