Features overview

Playlists you create

  • Search for the name of an artist or a particular song, just like you're used to. Add it to a new or existing playlist, and you can keep the momentum going by adding similar tracks from a list of updated recommendations from our catalog.

  • Start with a playlist made by our experts and add, remove, or reorder songs to make it your own. In just a couple of minutes, you can have a custom playlist with dozens of hours of music.

  • Drag in any Spotify playlist and make it legal for your business. It’s that easy, with the same songs in our catalog playing in the same order. You can also create a station from a Spotify playlist with hours of similar music.

Instant music

  • Each expertly curated playlist is designed for a particular business type, situation, or music genre, and contains an ideal balance of hits and lesser-known songs.

  • It doesn't get easier than this. Type in a name and get a playlist with songs by that artist and others who make similar music. It's like your favorite musicians suddenly recorded more albums at the click of a button.

  • Create a station around the values and vibe of your business. Click on mood, energy, and genre tags and get a station to match your choices.

Tools built for business

  • Schedule in advance to make sure that the music plays when and where it should. Drag and drop playlists into the calendar to meet business hours, expected rush times, and holidays.

  • Keep your business family-friendly with the flick of a switch and make sure that inappropriate content never ruins the ambiance.

  • Employees can use the Remote App to change the volume, skip a song that isn't going over well, and even share a song with customers for that personal touch (for iPhone only).

Your account

Control the music even when you’re not on site. Staff can help when you add them to your account.

Manage everything from anywhere

While you can control the music through the Soundtrack Player App on the device that the music is streaming through, you can also create, play, and schedule playlists for all of your zones from the web interface. This way you always know what's playing, even when you’re not on site.

Delegating made easy

Invite users to your account simply by entering their emails and decide how much control to give them. Maybe you want staff to be able to control the volume, but not choose the music? Or let someone else create the perfect playlist? It’s up to you.

Zones and locations

Your free trial lets you stream music to one zone. A zone isn't a where, it's a what - a single source of streaming music. Even if a building's 100 square feet or 10,000, you only need one zone if you want the same music playing everywhere in that space. 

To play different music at the same time in the same location, you'll need to add more zones. Each location needs at least one zone, so if you have businesses at two different addresses and want to play the same music at both, you'd need two zones.

Apps & Hardware

Use our free apps on your phone, tablet, or computer to play music that your customers and staff will love. And if you don’t want to use your own device, the optional Soundtrack Player Hardware lets you control everything online.

Frequently Asked Questions
