There’s a lot of talk regarding the “social jukebox” concept. Apps like Musx and hardware like Gramofon are tackling social playlists, how can a group of people democratically agree on what to listen to?
But what about actual jukeboxes? Are they going social too?
TouchTunes is an interactive music and entertainment platform. They focus on social interactions through apps, jukebox-photo booths, and more. TouchTunes serves music and entertainment content to 60,000 bars, clubs, and restaurants in North America. Now, they’re expanding their business.
TouchTunes has acquired Soundnet, a company that provides audio and video to 13,000 jukeboxes and venues across Europe. Soundnet recently launched Soundjack, a mobile app that lets users picks jukebox songs without having to get up.
The terms of the deal are not being shared.
