"mSpot has spent the past five years perfecting its proprietary over-the-air delivery technology so music plays from the cloud so fast it feels local - even when cell coverage is spotty or non-existent,” said mSpot CEO Daren Tsui.
Google IO Conference, San Francisco and Palo Alto (PRWEB) May 19, 2010
Popular mobile entertainment provider mSpot, Inc., today debuts mSpot®, a free music cloud service that offers instant access to users' entire music collections synced across smartphones* and PCs/Macs. The service enables users to quickly upload music into the mSpot Cloud, where they can start listening to it from popular desktop browsers and cell phones immediately. Google has invited mSpot to present at its Developer Sandbox during the Google IO Conference on May 19 and 20.
The service includes a smart application that operates in the background of a user's computer managing the upload and day-to-day syncing of the music library. In addition, it can upload playlists, cover art, ratings and song information that may have been entered using iTunes or Windows Media Player. The application manages users’ music, making automatic updates whenever changes occur in a library, and across different connected devices.
Access to the private beta is available by invitation only at http://www.mspot.com. Public availability of the service will begin in June, 2010.
“We recognize that portability is key to a compelling music experience for consumers, and the biggest challenge for music cloud services to tackle today. mSpot has spent the past five years perfecting its proprietary over-the-air delivery technology so music plays from the cloud so fast it feels local - even when cell coverage is spotty or non-existent,” said mSpot CEO Daren Tsui.
mSpot provides a rich, “connected” experience that enables users to see related content matched to the song that’s being played, including song lyrics, artist bios and discography - all because it is connected to the mSpot Cloud. mSpot enables users to take their music wherever they go, automatically syncing with different devices in such a seamless way that it feels like their music is following them: simple, fast and easy.
*The service will initially be offered on the latest Android phones.
The launch of the mSpot® music service comes on the heels of its Mobile Movies service, which is available via the mobile web on all four major U.S. carriers and across 50 different handset devices, including the iPhone, Blackberry, Palm, Windows Mobile and many high-end feature phones. mSpot Movies is available on the Web and mobile at mspotmovies.com.
