Snap One, a developer of cloud-service applications and underlying platforms, announced on Friday last week that its cloud-based music streaming application, Snap Play, is now available for Windows Phone 8. Snap Play is already offered on iOS, Android, and any internet-enabled device via the Snap Play Web portal.
Snap Play streams a user’s synced music from the cloud to any device, at any time. The application organizes music by song, album, genre, playlists and favorites, and users can create new playlists right from their mobile device and stream them from anywhere. A distinguishing feature of Snap Play is that users can stream their iTunes library from any device, including a Windows phone.
“A great benefit of Snap Play is that consumers no longer have to worry about music files taking up a lot of storage space on their device,” said Michael Subhan, VP of Marketing, SnapOne. “By streaming music from the cloud instead of keeping songs on your mobile device, you can purchase a cheaper smartphone with less storage capacity.”
Snap Play is downloaded as part of the Snap One suite of apps that includes Snap Secure, Snap Sync and Snap Play. The suite allows users to secure, sync, back up, stream and share their digital lives through a secure, centralized cloud. Snap One subscribers can add up to six users, 1 TB of cloud storage and unlimited devices to one account. To stream music, subscribers must first sync the music on their devices with Snap Sync, which is included in the suite.
