British startup ShareMyPlaylists has a new name: Playlists.net. It’s a reflection of the fact that many of its users aren’t sharing their own Spotify playlists, but just listening to other people’s. Or, as the company puts it: “The rebrand to Playlists.net reflects the platform’s prominence as a music discovery tool as opposed to simply a playlist sharing platform.” Playlists.net has launched a new version of its own Spotify app to reflect the rebranding, as well as adding features like the ability to filter playlists by mood, charts, an improved playlist generator and full-page reviews of playlists. Founder Kieron Donoghue says the new app will play nice with Spotify’s web player, which should also mean it’ll work within Spotify’s mobile apps when they get the ability to run third-party apps – something other sources have told us is happening in the very near future. “Playlists are fast becoming the new format in the music streaming industry,” says Donoghue. “We have always been the number one destination to discover music via high quality playlists, so our new name now reflects this.” For now, Playlists.net remains focused on Spotify rather than other streaming music services, though.
