iOS to support introductory subscription pricing offers

This is a small change to the way in-app subscriptions work on Apple’s iOS platform, but a potentially good one for third-party music-streaming services like Spotify, Deezer, Pandora and the rest.
Apple’s next software update, iOS 11.2, will include a feature called ‘Introductory Pricing for Auto-Renewable Subscriptions’. The company explains the feature thus: “Soon, you’ll be able to offer new customers a discounted introductory price for your auto-renewable subscriptions on the App Store.”

Musical.ly starts to attract brands for influencer marketing

Social app Musical.ly has been cautious about getting into advertising – and with good reason, given the strong regulations in the US around advertising to children.
However, brands are starting to make use of the app for their own marketing by working with its popular ‘Musers’ on influencer-marketing campaigns.

Canary app could offer a new mobile spin on scrobbling

Last.fm’s days as a music-streaming powerhouse may be behind it, but its idea of ‘scrobbling’ music – keeping track on the songs and artists you listen to – remains useful.
Now a new startup called Canary looks like it’s exploring the idea with more of a mobile focus. Its app is currently available in beta for iOS devices, and is pitched as “a social network where you check-in the music you listen to and keeps a record of that data to let you know things like how often do you listen to the particular music, artist, or genre and how your music tastes change over time”.

Chinese startup Nusic to launch mobile game for mix-sharing

We raise our eyebrows wearily whenever we see a new startup touting itself, as Nusic does, as an ‘Instagram for Music’.
But the slogan for the Chinese firm’s profile on investment site AngelList actually sells it short: the company appears to be working on something much more interesting than just a ‘share photos with music clips’ application.

Google Assistant gets its own Shazam-style music ID feature

Google really does mean business in 2017 when it comes to parking its tanks on Shazam’s lawn. The company’s recently-unveiled Pixel 2 smartphones include a feature to automatically identify music that’s playing around their owner.
Now the company’s voice-assistant Google Assistant can perform a similar trick, simply by being asked ‘What song is this?’ or ‘What song is playing?’. On devices with a screen, it’ll show a card with the song title, artist name, lyrics and links to YouTube, Google Play and Spotify.
