App Gives Access to Seven Million Songs on Android

  • Cloud-based music downloads
  • Most big labels on service
  • Can access service on many Sony devices

Sony says its Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity App for Android is now available in Australia and New Zealand.

The cloud-based, digital music service gives music lovers streaming access to an ever-expanding catalogue of over seven million licensed songs from labels including Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group and EMI Music as well as independent labels and publishers worldwide.

Users can now enjoy the service on Sony Ericsson’s Android-based mobile devices including Xperia arc, Xperia Play, Xperia X10, Xperia X8 and Xperia neo as well as Android-based third party devices.

Users can also continue to access the service on a variety of internet-connected Sony devices including 2010 and 2011 models of network-enabled Bravia HDTVs, Blu-ray Disc players and Blu-ray Disc Home Theatre systems as well as the PlayStation 3, PSP and personal computers including VAIO PCs.

Powering the back-end of the service are Omnifone and Gracenote.  Omnifone provided its platform services to develop and deliver the service across a range of device platforms as well as licensed the service with rights holders around the world to provide a global catalogue of over seven million tracks.

Gracenote’s music identification and discovery technologies and Global Media Database create a rich experience for subscribers, letting them enjoy their existing digital music collection and discover new artists and albums.
