SoundMachine Joins Tune In’s airable.API to Ease Adoption of Music Subscription Service for Businesses
SoundMachine, the premier music subscription service for business, has been integrated into Tune In GmbH’s airable.API, which makes it simple for system integrators and commercial audio hardware manufacturers to connect their devices to a variety of content services with just one API. This new integration will allow businesses using airable.API-enabled devices to easily connect to SoundMachine and fill their locations with music tailored to their image.
SoundMachine gives large and small retailers, restaurants, spas, or any other company looking to enhance their physical space the ability to craft a seamless, engaging, and on-brand music experience. The service provides full licensing for Public Performance within a client’s business environment in the U.S. (via ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, and SoundExchange) and Canada (via SOCAN and RE:SOUND), with clients receiving access to professionally curated stations that can be mixed to create the perfect audio atmosphere. They can then schedule those customized mixes to match the mood throughout the day. Users can also upload promotional messages to play at scheduled intervals or exact times along with the music, and SoundMachine’s top-down content management system allows users to link an unlimited number of locations or users to one account, making operating the music and promotional messages a breeze. SoundMachine also recently introduced a new subscription tier titled Business Premium powered by Napster, which allows users to create an even more personalized sound with custom playlists starting from an artist or song, as well as hundreds of Napster’s own curated stations. SoundMachine can also create custom playlists designed specifically for individual companies.
“We want to be as accessible as possible to our business customers, and Tune In’s airable.API will make it easy for thousands of sound systems to directly and easily access SoundMachine,” said Matteo Luppi, CEO at SoundMachine. “By having our platform included in their API, sound system manufacturers will be able to make SoundMachine easily available through their hardware without the need for a specific integration with us.”
“SoundMachine is an important service offering for the business customer, and it’s important to our hardware clients to have these options available for in-venue use,” said David Litt, VP Product Management at Tune In GmbH.
