In the past few years Spotify has gone from a service that a few music snobs used to being one of the primary ways that people consume music, both by listening to it and discovering new music. Now it is poising itself to become even more important in the music world, since it has acquired two start up companies.
Soundwave is a app that has been highly lauded by consumers and industry professionals alike. It is a social tool for finding music and talking about it with friends, which does make perfect sense for Spotify.
The other start up which has been acquired by Spotify is called the Cord Project, an app that is kind of like a walkie-talkie for your smartphone. It seems that Spotify is not only looking for new ways to help people find and talk about music, but they may also be looking for new ways to have people experience music. The creators of Cord Project have also created two other audio apps, one called Chhirp which allowed you to upload 12 second to Twitter, and another called Shhout which allows you maneuver your phone in a certain way to record audio and send it to all of your followers automatically.
A rep from Cord Project says that, in conjunction with Spotify, he hopes to use all of the incredible features of mobile devices including the “accelerometer, the geo-localization, all the social network data” to create unique sound experiences and potentially revolutionize the way we listen to and experience music. What will the result be? We’ll just have to wait and see.
