Aspiro Music lands on Android platform – new streaming music service adds to mobile capability

Aspiro, Northern Europe's leading provider of mobile entertainment services, today confirmed that its new desktop and mobile streaming music service would now be available on Google's new Nexus One phone and other Android handsets.

The new service delivers live streaming of an extensive catalogue of music tracks via the online streaming service, the WiMP, beta launched in partnership last year with Norway's largest retail music chain, Platekompaniet.

Millions of tracks are already available on the player from some 160,000 albums and more than 120,000 artists from thousands of record labels including global giants such as Universal, Sony BMG, EMI and Warner as well as a host of local companies.

All the key features of the WiMP desktop service are available on the Android version - such as search, playlists, favourites and discovery. Tracks can also be cached for offline listening.

The WiMP service, also available as a white label service for operators, is designed as a subscription service and any music downloaded for offline listening can be accessed throughout the subscription period.

Announcing the development, Aspiro Music CEO Per Einar Dybvik said: "By adding the Android platform to our portfolio of devices we are ensuring that the benefits of the WiMP service can be enjoyed by desktop users on PC, Mac and Linux and by mobile users on iPhone and now Android.

"For our operator customers - this widespread availability is crucial to the success of streaming music services," he added.

The Android version as well as desktop and iPhone test versions can all be seen at Aspiro's stand 17.07 at the Midem.
