NEW YORK, May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Yonder Music, Inc. announces the commercial-beta launch of its Android-exclusive digital music service. Yonder provides users with pay-wall free access to millions of songs to download, and play, commercial-free, replacing traditional paid download, streaming, and Internet radio services.  Yonder is a transformative solution that targets the 99% of consumers that don't currently pay for a music subscription service, increasing the size of the digital music market, while paying content owners in proportion to their content plays.

Yonder goes to market with a complete catalog of music from major labels, including Universal Music Group, Sony Music, and Warner Music Group, in addition to a fast developing selection of independent artists, and labels.  Yonder combines essential features of Internet radio services such as Pandora, with those of streaming services Beats Music and Spotify, while leveraging patent-pending social discovery tools, to automatically build and download a "Magic Library™."  

"Thus far, music streaming services have only addressed the 1% of global mobile users that have indicated some sort of willingness to pay for music. Yonder addresses the 99% by bundling the music service with the smartphone or the network data plan and providing a free to the user experience above all expectations" -Adam Kidron, Founder and CEO Yonder Music Inc.

Device makers, retailers, and other commercial partners seeking to increase revenue, improve customer loyalty, increase new customer acquisition, and to otherwise differentiate their products, are able to partner with Yonder, to pre-install the service onto smartphones. Thus, partners may deliver unlimited music to their customers, in which the cost is included in the price of the device or service plan.

During the commercial-beta, Yonder is targeting consumers in the market for high-quality, smart mobile devices, such as the HTC One. These users will serve as an informed, committed, test population, and will power Yonder's unique social discovery algorithms.

Yonder's platform was built with the user in mind – so much so, that the discovery algorithms are powered by user activity. The more that users engage with the platform by creating and subscribing to playlists, the more intelligent and robust the platform becomes. User activity also feeds Yonder's social algorithms that power Yonder's unique feature set, which includes:

  1. Continuous Play: When a song, album or playlist ends, Yonder delivers a related playlist so the music never stops playing.
  2. Song Stream: An auto-curated, real-time feed of songs, currently being played by Yonder users, who share similar song preferences with a user.
  3. "Deep Yonder™": An enhanced search tool that magnifies the discovery of related content.
  4. Magic Library™: An auto-curation tool that progressively downloads a user's selections and related songs to the device, auto-building a well-curated library. Subsequent plays of every saved track are delivered locally, thereby minimizing demand on bandwidth.
