Songza Now Gathers Weather Info to Musically Accompany Your Rainy Days

Songza

Songza has always been about the feels — about finding the right music to match any moment, whether it’s waking up on a Sunday morning, pre-gaming in your apartment with friends, or moping over a breakup. The service even offers a “3 AM Airport” station that provides relevant jams for when you’re stuck in an empty airport at 3 AM, or want to feel like you are. Now, the company is adding another factor to its recommendations engine — the weather. By leveraging data from The Weather Channel, Songza will now recommend certain playlists and stations if it’s sunny, stormy, snowy, or simply when the sun’s going down. Clicking on “Thunderstorm,” for example, also pops up a box that asks for your mood: are you feeling anxious, relaxed, or angry about the current storm? Within each mood exist playlists like Stormy Indie Sirens, Reign In Blood, and Bring Da Ruckus.
