Sonos Plugs Into 8tracks
Sonos, the developer of the popular, user-friendly whole home wireless music players, has plugged into yet another streaming music provider, 8tracks. 8tracks says that Sonos customers can now stream curated playlists from the service through the Sonos music management app. 8tracks features curated Internet radio playlists from its users; the streaming music service says it differentiates itself from competitors like Pandora by relying on a subset of its users to generate playlists, instead of relying on an algorithm. 8tracks is venture backed by Index Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, SoftTech, and SPA, and based in San Francisco. Sonos is based in Santa Barbara.
