- Soundcloud has announced that it has acquired music AI startup Musiio.
- The company plans to use the technology to bolster its music discovery features.
Soundcloud wants to make it easier to find what's up-and-coming in the world of music.
In a press release (opens in new tab), the company announced that it has acquired Musiio in an effort to boost music discovery on its service. Musiio, which currently serves the B2B market, uses artificial intelligence to "listen" to music and offers automated tagging as well as playlist creation tools for the music industry.
Eliah Seton, President of SoundCloud, said that Musiio's technology will help the company "better understand how music is moving in a proprietary way."
Hazel Savage, CEO of Musiio, said that Soundcloud "is the future of the new, holistic music industry."
We'll have to wait and see how Musiio's technology integrates with Soundcloud over time to experience the fruits of the acquisition.
