The tech firm is actively working on re-invigorating the way music is shared over various channels. It aims to come up with a brand new system that will forever revolutionize the music sharing systems.

“Even though our current service is shutting down, we’re not going anywhere. We’ve spent the last year working on something brand new in the music space that will revolutionize how we all listen to music. We can’t share much yet, but keep Rythm in your servers and subscribe to our newsletter to get updates as we release them over the next few months.”
