Whyd's music-streaming aggregation now open to the public

Brian Heater

It was, according to our calendars, nearly 14 months ago that we first checked out Whyd. The music service pulls songs scraped from sites like YouTube and Soundcloud, letting you build streaming playlists out of music often not available through the likes of Spotify and iTunes. And while we haven't heard so much as a peep out of the service in the intervening year-plus, it's clear that the team has been working on something over there. Today, the site is finally shedding its long-standing invite-only status, opening up to one and all. The news also brings with it an, ahem, wider variety of features, including Deezer-compatibility, comments, revamped profiles and more to help nudge you in the direction of yet another streaming-music offering.
