Soundrop will be shutting down on December 31st of this year.
This is a direct result of Spotify’s decision to kill the App Finder and remove all apps in their next desktop release. Soundrop also has Deezer integration, but losing the ability to integrate with Spotify is too big of a loss.
Soundrop plans on putting some of the technology they built to use. They say they have plans for the playlists they’ve created, but nothing specific has been shared yet.
Soundrop originally launched in 2011. It filled a social-listening void created by the shutdown of Turntable.fm.
The people behind Soundrop will now focus on Show.co, their marketing tool for musicians and labels.
