Yahoo! is ready to rock and roll, with the launch of Play by Yahoo! Music, a native mobile MP3 player for Android phones launching in the U.S. today. The launch of Play by Yahoo! Music marks the first step in bringing next generation music applications to Android users, leveraging patent pending technologies to effortlessly turn your Android smartphone into a full-featured music player, including Identify over the air song ID, smart shuffle playback and fully integrated social sharing.  Coupled with exclusive access to Yahoo! Music’s leading editorial content, Play by Yahoo! Music brings a one-of-a-kind listening experience to Android users.


Identify allows you to identify the songs you hear anywhere – on the radio, in the club or around town.  Using proprietary audio fingerprinting technology, Play by Yahoo! Music helps you build the ultimate library by enabling you to I.D. new music and share your discovery with friends.  Play by Yahoo! Music offers single song I.D. as well as continuous mode – allowing users to identify a series of songs played in a row automatically.

Yahoo! Music News

Play from Yahoo! Music leverages clean and lightweight user interface to deliver the latest news from your favorite artists as you listen. Tap on the Artist News button from any song from the Now Playing view and you’re immediately brought to a listing of updated information on the artist you’re listening to right in the Play app.

Smart Shuffle

Using unique behavior-based recommendation technology, Play by Yahoo! Music can learn your musical taste and tailor playback to your mood.  Select a song to set the mood, or if you’re not sure what you want to listen to, Play by Yahoo! Music’s smart shuffle technology takes control and figures out your mood by taking cues from your past listening behavior.  By understanding your tastes, Play by Yahoo! Music creates smarter, more customized playback for each individual user without any star ratings or thumbs up cues other players require.


Other features of the Play by Yahoo! Music app include, Twitter and Facebook status updates, automatic cover art cleanup, and smarter search through custom technology that auto-corrects for misspellings to ensure the fastest, most accurate results possible.

Play from Yahoo! Music is now available in the Android Market:

Rock on!!
