Today GrooveShark, my favorite music site has announce a new way to upload songs directly from your hard drive into GSlite without downloading a client. Basically, if you have a song on your computer you can now “take it anywhere” that you have internet access and flash. Just when you thought it couldn’t get more easier then their previous release of TinySong, they stay ahead of the curve again.
GrooveShark also improved the methods of sharing. User can now share entire playlists as well as individual songs. You can also share a list of your “favorite” songs.
They have also released a Widget, that now enables you to take any of their songs and create an embeddable widget for your blog etc . . . They don’t have streaming limits like the Rhapsody based widgets, and the entire thing is free and currently ad free for users. So now you have unlimited streaming of your favorite songs with a playlist.
The big thrust of this release is so they can take down the old BETA while they work on something big to replace it, and want Grooveshark Lite to be the one stop shop for your musical needs.
So they’ve rolled in a lot of the social features (sharing, friends) and they have made it a lot easier for you to get your music into the system. They also added the widget so that once your music is there, you can start packaging it up and sharing it with people who don’t happen to use Grooveshark.
