Songza Google

Amid reports that Google would soon buy up music streaming/recommendation service Songza (and the World Cup), Google is finally making everything official. Taking to their Google Play Google+ page, Google is welcoming Songza to the family, mentioning that the service would soon be infused into Google Play Music, with them exploring ways to bring Songza’s curation to YouTube and other Google products.

Google didn’t attach a dollar amount to the deal, but it’s the latest in a stream of acquisitions the search giant has been engaged in as of late. Some are likening this deal to the recent acquisition of Beats by Apple. Google recommends users try out Songza for themselves, where the app can lives on (at least for the time being) in the Play Store here.
