YouTube to launch music streaming service, take on Spotify - Fortune Tech

YouTube to launch music streaming service, take on Spotify - Fortune Tech | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Exclusive: Google is planning to roll out a music streaming service to capitalize on the power of YouTube...

 

Sources in the record industry told Fortune that it is not yet clear if a subscription-based model is more lucrative (and therefore preferable) to an ad-subsidized approach. Free nets more customers, but the subscription model has consumers actively paying for music -- a good thing, if you're in the music business, which just posted its first year-on-year increase in sales in thirteen years....

 

Google is entering an already crowded field: Spotify, Pandora (P), Rdio, Soundcloud, and Muve Music all offer customers similar access to large online music libraries. Apple is rumored to be building a "radio" feature in its iTunes program that would deliver streaming music based upon a user's tastes -- a service something like Pandora -- that further merges the experience of being in a "store" to purchase music, and then listening to it in a "player."

 

They're all fighting over a still small pie. U.S. consumers have been fairly slow to join -- and stick with -- subscription music services. The most popular, Muve Music, has just 1.4 million customers. (Spotify is close behind, with about 1 million.) Its success is in large part due to the fact that it bundles its price into a cellphone bill, as if it were a cable operator charging for an MTV/VH1 package. The mobile carrier that owns Muve, Cricket, is then able to sell subscriptions at less than $5 a month, far lower rates than Spotify, which generally costs about twice that much.

 

Soundcloud, a free music streaming site that is user-curated and is, in many ways, similar in spirit and practice to YouTube, has recently begun partnering with major artists and large companies, such as Snoop Lion (nee, Dog) and Red Bull. Soundcloud boasts that it is the fastest growing music streaming site, with its users uploading about 10 hours of content a minute. In 2010, YouTube users uploaded 35 hours of content per minute; in 2011, they posted 48 hours per minute; as of last May, it was up to 72 hours a minute. It's not all music, but a lot is.

Ford And GM Forge Different Wireless Paths - Forbes

Ford And GM Forge Different Wireless Paths - Forbes | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
Ford wants to use the smartphone as a wireless hub, while GM is working with AT&T to pipe connectivity directly into its cars.

America’s biggest car makers have realized the cars they make are in fact the ultimate mobile devices – moving at speed, and  pushing faster data speeds too. Both Ford and GM are moving to make their cars smarter with web capability, but they announced different strategies at Mobile World Congress today. While GM announced it was partnering with AT&T to bring wireless connectivity to its cars next year, Ford partnered with an Internet player, music streaming service Spotify, using iPhones as the wireless hubs for its cars.

Ford’s strategy offers more in-car development, sooner. It only has to wait for Spotify to release an update to its iOS app (which it says will be in the first quarter of this year) and drivers who have Ford SYNC in their car will be able to use Spotify in the Car with voice commands.

Pandora Eliminates Unlimited Mobile Streaming

Pandora Eliminates Unlimited Mobile Streaming | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
In an effort to balance growing royalty costs, Pandora announced Wednesday that it will be eliminating unlimited ad-supported music streaming on the service via mobile.

Pandora listeners in the US will now be limited to 40 hours of free ad-supported streaming on their mobile devices each calendar month, after which they’ll have to pay a fee to keep listening $.99 in-app purchase.


Kennedy says that the average user on Pandora only spends 20 hours on the service across all platforms. He says that Wednesday’s announcement is likely to only effect 4% of Pandora’s monthly active listeners.

La France, 2ème pays d'Europe en streaming musical... C'est l'Hebdo Musique & Web | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
Finalement, qu'en est-il réellement du développement du streaming en Europe, et plus particulièrement en France ?

 

Un chiffre sera à retenir aujourd’hui : 500 000. Il s’agit du nombre de personnes abonnées à un service payant de streaming en France. Le streaming prend une place si importante aujourd’hui qu’il représenterait ainsi plus d’1/3 des revenus de la musique numérique.

Le SNEP pointe ainsi quelques statistiques, notamment la part grandissante du numérique dans un secteur toujours en « crise ». On enregistre 5% de baisse du chiffre global du marché de la musique sur l’année 2012 comparée à 2011. La part du marché numérique représente 25% du total en 2012 alors qu’elle était de 20% l’année précedente. Plutôt encourageant !

Spotify's Daniel Ek wants to turn you on to new music

Spotify's Daniel Ek wants to turn you on to new music | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Ek's done more than just noodle in online music. He's been more successful at advancing the notion of subscribing to a celestial jukebox than anyone before. While music-subscription services Rhapsody, the legal Napster and MOG (soon to relaunch as Daisy) all pre-date Spotify, Ek has 5 million paying customers — (five times Rhapsody's base) — and 20 million active members who use the ad-supported free version. (Spotify charges $5 monthly for ad-free listening on a PC or $10 for mobile access.)

His twist on rivals was emphasizing the social aspects of music — showing what your friends are listening to via Facebook. Others had tried to do that but not as successfully.

Now, he wants to take the social aspect of discovering new music to the next level by showing you what your favorite artists listen to.

Deezer Reaches 3 Million Subscribers, Launches Free Service, Adds Features | Billboard.biz

Deezer Reaches 3 Million Subscribers, Launches Free Service, Adds Features | Billboard.biz | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

The subscription marketplace is looking more and more like a two-horse race.

French subscription service Deezer is launching a free, ad-supported version of its music service in more than 150 countries Thursday (Wednesday in the U.S.) and a host of features that suggest market-leading Spotify has serious competition. Deezer now has 3 million subscribers, 1 million more than it had in Octoberand 2 million fewer than Spotify.

CEO Axel Dauchez tells Billboard.biz the launch of the free service "one of the most important investments in the company" because of its ability to expand Deezer's reach. The company estimates it will have a potential audience of 600 million people who use Facebook, have 3G connection and own a smartphone. Users of the free service will be given a period of unlimited listening -- somewhere between one month and a year, depending on the country -- before being limited to two hours of free listening per month.

Foursquare, Deezer innovating to drive user engagement

Foursquare, Deezer innovating to drive user engagement | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

LIVE FROM MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS: The CEOs of Foursquare and Deezer described how they are innovating to drive user engagement in today's keynote at Congress....

 

CEO of music service Deezer, Axel Dauchez, said that innovation is “absolutely critical” but knowing where to focus this innovation is key to driving engagement.

Deezer is aiming to make music a “more intense part of users identity”, according to Dauchez, by providing the means for active music discovery and making the relationship between users and artists more tangible by providing exclusive content.

Integrating the live music experience into the service is also an important element that drives user engagement. “We need to provide a better experience of the gig itself,” Dauchez said.

Although taking down barriers to music discovery is important, Dauchez there is also scope to put in some restrictions to drive user engagement. For example, if a band is making an album, they can make some of music available for a short period of time, which drives a significant rise in user engagement.

Ford drives Ford SYNC into Europe with Spotify partnership

Ford drives Ford SYNC into Europe with Spotify partnership | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

A global partnership with Spotify, announced today at Mobile World Congress, heralds a major push into Europe for Ford SYNC, the voice-activated in-car connectivity system, and Ford SYNC AppLink, which enables customers to control smartphone apps safely from the driver’s seat.

Paul Mascarenas, Ford chief technical officer and vice president, research and innovation said that Ford SYNC will feature in 3.5 million Ford vehicles in Europe by 2015.  Helping the company reach this target will be the all-new European version of the EcoSport. Unveiled at Congress, the Ford EcoSport is one of the first Ford vehicles in Europe to offer Ford SYNC AppLink.

The integration of the music streaming service with Ford SYNC AppLink-equipped vehicles in both Europe and North America marks Spotify’s first direct collaboration with an automotive manufacturer. With 20 million users and five million paying subscribers, Spotify is currently available in 17 European countries, the USA, Australia and New Zealand.

Pascal de Mul, global head of hardware partnerships, Spotify, said that AppLink will enable drivers to access Spotify songs and playlists using voice commands including: “shuffle”, “repeat”, “star/unstar track”, “choose playlist”, “play music”, “recently played”, and “now playing”.

Ford also announced that it is working with three partners on European-tailored versions of AppLink apps previously launched in the US. Kaliki Audio Newsstand provides audible playback of newspaper and magazine articles; Glympse allows Ford drivers to share their location and estimated time of arrival with friends and family; Aha uses the cloud to safely enable internet-based entertainment and information allowing drivers to search for infotainment such as social media feeds, places to eat or stay and weather.

Check Out the Reach for Streaming Radio

Check Out the Reach for Streaming Radio | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
According to this source, radio's streams (yes, including Pandora et. al.) reach 40% of 18-24's, a third of 25-34's, and one out of every four 35-54's.

 

Interestingly, the results clearly show that while the majority of industry buzz is around streaming video, in all age groups analyzed, TV and Movies (individually and combined) were outstripped by the total reach of streaming Radio / Audio.

While this may seem counterintuitive to some, a possible explanation may be a plus of audio content — it does not require fixed attention or even for the individual to remain in place. Also, Radio and any other kind of streaming can be done on the computer while working on the same device — whether for the purpose of providing background music, sports commentary or other forms of talk-based content.

Is Spotify hurting record sales? Not exactly | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
It’s long been the accusation lobbed at Spotify, Rdio, Mog and the streaming services: Users have no reason to buy music, thanks to 24/7 access to all-you-can-eat streaming of their 10 to 20 million-song catalogues. Oh, and artists don’t get paid enough either.

Never mind that access, not ownership is the way media consumption has been moving for the last 5 years. (Thanks, Netflix, for pioneering that.)

Spotify, le géant de l'écoute de musiques en streaming, vient de signer un partenariat avec la marque de voiture Volvo.

 

Après un partenariat entre Deezer et la marque de voiture Nissan, d’autres constructeurs automobiles cherchent à rattraper la concurrence. C’est le cas des prochains véhicules Volvo, lancés en 2014, qui seront entièrement connectés à Internet grâce à votre téléphone qui servira de modem. Cette nouvelle technologie proposée par la société Ericsson permettra d’écouter de la musique en streaming, de voir la météo en direct, de recevoir ses notifications Facebook et Twitter, d’avoir accès à des divertissements en ligne, etc…

En 2016, Volvo intègrera directement Internet dans ses voitures, il faudra alors s’équiper d’une carte SIM avec un forfait payable mensuellement.
