Yonder Music announces commercial-beta launch of Android-exclusive digital music service
Yonder Music has announced its commercial-beta launch of an Android-exclusive digital music service. Providing users with access to millions of songs with no pay-wall barrier, music content can be downloaded and played without commercials. Yonder's catalog includes major labels such as Universal Music Group, Sony Music, and more, as well as a variety of independent artists and labels. During the commercial-beta, Yonder can only be used on specific Android-enabled devices, such as the HTC One, and must purchase it directly from Yonder Music to have access to the application.
Yonder's social discovery tool feature, entitled "Magic Library", features auto-curation that progressively download's a user's selections and related songs to the device, intuitively building a library that aligns to the listener's preferences. Subsequent plays of every saved track are delivered locally, thereby minimizing demand on bandwidth. Other features within Yonder's service include continuous playing, song streaming of currently played content by other Yonder users, and an enhanced search tool that magnifies the discovery of related content. Those interested in utilizing Yonder's music service while in beta can purchase an unlocked HTC One M8 ($680) or HTC One M7 ($480) directly from Yonder--a $300 phone option is coming soon.
