LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y., May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Songza released a major update to its Songza App for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, introducing powerful new ways to enjoy the right music at the right moment and available now on the App Store.

"Version 3.0 of Songza was developed based on hundreds of hours of conversation with our users to understand how we could further our mission of making the things they do every day better," said Elias Roman, co-founder and CEO of Songza. "This app update coincides with four new milestones for Songza: we've just had our 6,000,000th App Store install and served over 560,000,000 songs in the last 30 days. We're now reaching 4,700,000 monthly active users who spend more than 65,000,000 minutes with Songza each day."

Songza 3.0, now available on the App Store, brings 6 major improvements to Songza's lifestyle-enhancing service:

  1. When you're in a rush, a long press on any Concierge situation (e.g. Driving) immediately starts playing the playlist Songza thinks you'll love most at that moment. Starting your Songza playlist can now be as fast as turning on your car radio. 
  2. Doing something special? From the Concierge screen on iPhone or iPod touch, shake your device and let Songza know exactly what you're up to; Songza will then find the right music to make it better. For example, you could enter 'Entertaining' and Songza will find you music to soundtrack the perfect party.
  3. Songza's HQ Audio feature, powered by Audyssey, significantly improves your headphone sound quality without increasing your data plan usage. With Songza 3.0's improved HQ Audio, many new headphone models are supported and it's now easier to select your headphones whenever you add a new pair.
  4. Enjoying your favorite artists is now better than ever. When you search for an artist, you'll see every expert-curated playlist on Songza that features them. When you make your selection, the playlist you choose will begin with a song by that artist.
  5. To make music discovery easier, Songza tips help you move from playlists you're getting tired of to new playlists that will make you feel fresh all over again.
  6. A new full-screen Concierge experience removes visual clutter, while a simplified navigation focuses on the most powerful and user-friendly additional features.

The Songza App, featuring HQ audio powered by Audyssey, is available from the App Store on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at
