Streaming music service Spotify announced this morning it has acquired a company called Sonalytic, makers of an audio detection technology that can identify songs, mixed content and audio clips, as well as track copyright-protected material, and aid in music discovery.
These features line up with services that Spotify offers, making Sonalytic a natural fit for the company, it seems.
Spotify doesn’t provide much detail on its plans for integrating Sonalytic with its service, only saying that its audio detection feature will be used to do things like improve personalized playlists and match songs with compositions to improve its publishing data system. The company also teases that users can “stay tuned” for new products that will come to market, thanks to Sonalytic’s help.
