Competitor Analysis

My research was focused on music platforms, and the differences between them. At the same time I was inspired by apps that successfully made a connection between people, by social media networks such as “Instagram” and “Facebook”, and the UX design was inspired by “Gett” among other location-based apps.
I was able to combine between these worlds, making it easy to share music, discover new music, and at the same time connect with new people.

These websites are user friendly, you have the ability to follow people you already know.
Using them, you cannot connect to the people around you and listen to their music, or explore popular music in different locations.

Solution & Goals

With a single click you can share the music you listen to, and find the people who enjoy it.
You can become an influencer by being you, listening to what you like.
Just as easily, discover new music – that guy in the bar that you had a good connection with, the girl in the park that couldn’t stop dancing, Surround lets you listen to their music.
You can now hear the music that is really being played in different locations around the world, exploring new cultures and communities.
