Spotify has acquired the music app Tunigo, which helps users discover Spotify playlists and browse music and music-related news.


Spotify has acquired Tunigo, a Stockholm-based music discovery app, for an undisclosed sum, AllThingsD reported Friday.

Tunigo works on Spotify’s platform and also has iOS and Android apps. Tunigo lets users browse Spotify playlists, discover new music and read music reviews.

Tunigo’s app will remain on Spotify and its employees will work from Spotify’s New York and Stockholm offices.

“The acquisition fits into our overall strategy around music discovery, basically helping our users make sense of over 20 million tracks,” a Spotify spokesman told me.

Twitter recently launched its own #Music app, which focuses on music discovery and was built by We Are Hunted, the company that Twitter acquired last year.
