Myspace Announces Official Launch of New Platform Across Desktop and Mobile

Myspace LLC bringing the rebuilt platform out of beta and debuting a new mobile app available for free at the App Store. Built from the ground up using the latest technology, Myspace is designed to showcase creativity, foster collaboration, and promote discovery.

The mobile app's My Radio feature allows people to create and program their own radio stations, which can be streamed for free on an unlimited basis. Stations can be produced by anyone, giving each member the opportunity to play the role of DJ and promote the music they love to the broader community.
