Google Play Music gets Material Design, curated mood music

Material Design is all around us, and of course Google products have been slowly been updating its products in order to match the new look of the upcoming Android Lollipop. This week it's the turn of Google Play Music to get an overhaul, but it's not just the look that gets a major tweaking, but rather, the way you listen to music as well. They are now offering "radio stations" that have been tailor-fit to your current activity or mood, thanks to a recent acquisition that supposedly makes curating music easier.

Spotify Family gives discount for multiple accounts

Listening to Spotify in all its unlimited access and ad-free glory is pretty much a requirement for most people these days (especially if you're sick and tired of that Spotify guy's voice) and it will not cost you an arm and a leg. But what if you have an entire household clamoring for their very own account? The expenses of paying for multiple subscriptions would then get to you. Your favorite music streaming service is trying to help you out with that by giving you big discounts with its Spotify Family package.

Avenge Sevenfold releases Android game Hail to the King: Deathbat

If movie stars write autobiographies and children's books as their "vanity projects", then rock stars have found their own niche by creating video games based on their music, or sometimes, even something as mundane as their logo. Yes, that's what popular metalcore band Avenge Sevenfold have done as they announced the release of their Android game Hail to the King: Deathbat. Yes, the Deathbat is their logo and mascot, but it's not the cuddly and adorable kind, if you know anything about the band's music.

Spotify now available in Canada

Canadians don't need to envy most of the world now, at least when it comes to enjoying one of the biggest music streaming services currently on the market. Spotify has now finally been made available in the North American country, although we still don't know why it's taken them this long and why other countries were chosen first over the US' nearest neighbour.

WhoSampled music discovery app comes to Android

For true-blue music geeks, finding out the DNA or origin of songs is something that thrills them. After all, as filmmaker Kirby Ferguson says, Everything Is A Remix. But while Google (or Wikipedia) is always there if you want to research, it would be handy to have an app that has a wide database to do that for you. Award-winning app WhoSampled is now finally available on Android, and it is a music aficionado’s dream come true (well, if you’re into that sort of thing).

YouTube Music Key tipped to be new music subscription service

What do you do if you have one of the world’s largest online database and repository of music – some under labels, some indie, some without labels – all searchable and viewable at the click of a button? Why, you think of ways to profit from it, of course. It honestly baffled me why it took this long for YouTube – and by extension Google – to think about this. But “YouTube Music Key” is coming soon.
