Whyd just announced a reboot to its music recommendation service that will make it a lot more user-friendly.
The Paris-based startup, which launched last November, is piggybacking on the Last.fm model, which relied on user data, such as bookmarks and playlists, to match users with similar tastes.
“We worked just as hard to make it effective at recommending other similar people for you to subscribe to even if you are new to the site”, co-founder Gilles Poupardin tells TechCrunch. “Obviously the more tracks you add the better, but it should still give you good results if you add at least three songs.”
According to TechCrunch, the app "combines data drawn from multiple sources such as artist data, track data, affinity of subscriptions, listening history, and more." There's also the option to link it with a Last.fm account if the user has one.
What's also nifty about the app is the ability to store several types of files in one place. As they explain on their site, you can save Vimeo, YouTube, SoundCloud and more.
