Rhapsody International, a parent company of streaming music services, Rhapsody and Napster, has decided to stop working with Echo Nest, which provided music recommendation services.
"As the number two music streaming service globally, we decided now is the time to invest heavily in personalization based on our experience as a pioneer in streaming music for over 13 years." said Paul Springer, Chief Product Officer and Rhapsody International's Senior Vice President of the Americas.
Rhapsody and Napster operate in 32 countries across Latin America and Europe.
Springer said users shouldn't notice any interruption and promised to offer them a more personalized listening experience across both the Rhapsody and Napster applications, over the next months.
