Spotify puts Tunigo to good use, launches Browse to add an element of human curation

Written by on August 6, 2013

Back in May, it was announced that Spotify had acquired Tunigo, the both stand-alone and integrated discovery app. Well, not many months later, the Spotify team have found a use for Tunigo, launching Browse – a feature that lets users browse through the most popular 20,000 playlists on the service.

It appears that the move is a strategic one, helping Spotify to add an element of curation to the service. Beats Music, a competitor to Spotify will be soon launching, and their point of difference is human curation – so you can see why Spotify have rushed to push this feature out the door.

The Browse feature is available on Android and iOS but will be rolled out on other platforms shortly.
