As of January 31st, 2016, popular free internet site Songza will be no more, as it is being absorbed into Google Play Music. […] Songza may be shuttering, but its influence can be seen in so many top-tier streaming platforms around today—some of which borrowed ideas from the now Google-owned property, while others had similar features before or around the same time. The playlists focused on mood or activity are popular on Spotify, while the ability to vote a song up or down and have that action help dictate what comes next is a core part of Pandora. – Hugh McIntyre, Forbes
