Dropbox is a great way for users to store their files in the cloud and access them on a variety of different devices, like laptops, desktops, smartphones or tablets. Audiogalaxy also does something similar, and allows users to stream music stored on their computer onto another device, like a smartphone for instance. Given that both companies share some similarities, we guess we can see the logic in Dropbox acquiring Audiogalaxy. This acquisition was announced today on Audiogalaxy’s blog, where it was also revealed that due to the acquisition, they will no longer be accepting new signups and that existing playlists will only remain available to current users until the end of December. It is unclear as to what Dropbox has planned for Audiogalaxy at the moment, but given Audiogalaxy’s streaming nature and Pandora-like features, we expect that Dropbox might be interested in integrating that into their cloud storage service. Either way we’ll keep our eyes and ears peeled for more information, but as someone who uses both Dropbox and Audiogalaxy, I am certainly excited to see the results of this.
