Google bought Songza

technologyEdward KiledjianComment

It seems the rumours we had all heard were true and Google has finally snapped up Songza. Deal details were are not known but media believes the deal is worth 15M$.

Some said this was done to improve Google Play Music All Access service others say it was a jab at Apple's 3B$ acquisition of Beats. 

Google issued a statement calming existing users by confirming that the service will continue as is (for the immediate future).  Unfortunately I'm convinced they will kill the Songza service we know and love moving users to the Google paid monthly service.

goodbye Songza... It was a fantastic ride while it lasted
