MySpace announced a new mobile experience customized for Android and available via the Android Market.
â€œMySpace users will love the new Android integration with cool features like instant photo uploading and access to the latest shows from their favorite bands,â€ said John Faith, vice president and general manager of Mobile for MySpace. â€œWe want to ensure that all users have access to their global MySpace network while theyâ€™re on-the-go, and we believe Android is a natural fit for an optimized MySpace Mobile experience.â€
The MySpace Android application lends itself to a personal, unique MySpace experience and allows for a deep integration with the device including:
- Instant photo uploading from an Android device to a MySpace profile
- Check out tour schedules on band profiles
- View and comment on photos, profiles, and bulletins
- Search and add new friends
- Send and read messages
- Update and view mood and status
The MySpace Android application is integrated exclusively with Shazam, the mobile music discovery provider. The integration allows MySpace users to identify music by holding the phone towards an unknown song and connect to the artistâ€™s MySpace page. From there you can see band information, check out photos of the band or artists and even check Upcoming Shows schedules.
