Nothing can change a mood, capture a moment in time – or get a party started – quite like music and there’s nothing like having access to over 25 million songs.
That’s what you get with jukeboxy, which is available for your business or your personal use. The app is available on a variety of platforms (music is the universal language, after all!), and there’s a social element to it, too, to allow you – or the people in the room/bar/club/dentist’s office – to have absolute control over what to listen to. Or check into your favorite nightspots and control the mood with just the touch of your finger, as the app let’s you vote on your favorite songs to increase their popularity in the venue. Or at your office, since we did give it a test run at a recent cocktail party held at Cowork.rs.
Founder and CEO Chad Ozgur is here to tell us more about all-inclusive app that’s going to be music to your ears…
