Tell your story in 30 seconds with Tango Music Pix
Mountain View, Calif., September 29, 2014 – Tango, a leader in mobile messaging, today launched Tango Music Pix: a stand-alone app that lets members tell their story by selecting up to 10 photos on their smartphone, and pairing their photos with a music clip chosen from a catalog of three million songs powered by music micro-licensing provider, Rumblefish. Members can easily preview their Music Pix story and share it with family and friends over 1:1 or group chat, or via Tango News Feed, Facebook, Twitter or email.
“We’re excited to roll out Music Pix and allow our members to create their own 30 second shareable memory that they can easily bring into their conversations,” said Chi-Chao Chang, VP of Strategy at Tango. “We’re expanding our ecosystem and mobile app offerings. Music Pix is an example of that as a stand-alone app that integrates into Tango and while giving people new ways to share rich content.”
The Music Pix app was developed by a new group within the company called Tango Labs, which is focused on developing stand-alone apps that integrate into Tango’s core functionality.
“Two of the pillars of Tango, that our members tell us they love, are content discovery and social sharing. Now with Music Pix, our fans can create content of their own and share it across their networks,” said Uri Raz, CEO and founder of Tango. “The $280 million funding round led by Alibaba gave us the resources to expand our team of talented developers and give them a new outlet for their creative innovation.”
Tango Music Pix is now available globally on iOS and Android.
