Description

Musixmatch is a startup founded in Italy in 2010, which brought for the first time a very popular request from users in a legal way, thanks to a partnership with the major worldwide music labels: having the chance to easily find song’s lyrics. With an innovative application available for the most important platforms on the market, the service integrates with the most popular music services and players (like Spotify and iTunes) and display lyrics synced in real time, allowing you to turn any device into a Karaoke machine. The application is available also on Windows and Mac as a traditional desktop application, built with the popular web framework Electron. However, Musixmatch wanted to expand the reach of its app and make it easier for Windows users to find it: the Desktop Bridge helped to achieve this goal, allowing them to take the Electron app and turn it into a Store that is available on the Windows Store and that makes easier for them to integrate it with all the new Windows 10 features. In this session, learn more about this exciting app, the conversion process and how, thanks to the Desktop Bridge, the company has been able to quickly reach the Store and make it better thanks to the Universal Windows Platform.
