Spotify acquired Echo Nest

Well that's good news for all of you Spotify lovers out there, since the latter just acquired The Echo Nest. And who's this "lady"? It's the top data processing company in music industry! Spotify acquired them in order to improve its Music Discovery feature and have even more info regarding the tracks it has in its data centers.


Obviously all this data mining (processing) work will be done in the background of the service so users will be able to find more easily the tracks that best suit their preferences. Oh and in case you didn't know, now Spotify offers more than 20 million songs and since 2008 (that began its service) has paid over half a million dollars to the song owners!
