We reported yesterday on the relaunch of Soundrop’s social music Spotify app. Now the company has given more details on its growth and ambitions. CEO Inge Andre Sandvik tells TechCrunch that 15m tracks were played in Soundrop in February, but that this more-than doubled to 34.2m in March – more than rival Turntable.fm played in three months according to Sandvik. Soundrop is currently closing its first round of VC funding, and has its sights set on expansion into real-world locations. “We have reason to believe that the license model for streaming music players will change and that it will be legal to use a streaming music player in bars, cafes, restaurants and shops. Soundrop is a perfect tool for all of these businesses to engage their guests and customers with,” he says. “You can imagine checking in with your phone to your favorite cafe and be able to either vote on the music that is upcoming or add your favorite tracks.”
