The operating system of the world’s most popular music service, Elia, will soon become available for the entire world, as the system operator and creator of VXworks, announced on Thursday.
“I would like to say that Elia is a dream come true for anyone who has a desire to do something different with the music industry,” Vexo founder and CEO Jelena Vlachos said in a statement.
“It’s time for us to create a truly global music service that anyone can use.”
Elia was launched in late 2016, with more than two million users.
It’s a music-centric operating system that lets users stream music from services like Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora and SoundCloud to their computer, without the need for a subscription or paying a monthly fee.
It was developed by the Elia Systems team, which includes Elia CEO Jovanka Vlacic, the company’s CEO, and Elia Software founder Niklas Haug, who is also CEO of the music company.
Elia systems was announced as part of a $1 billion investment by the Swedish company.
“Vexo is committed to bringing our users the best possible experience through our products,” Haug said in the statement.
Elias software is free and open source, so anyone can download and use it.
The company plans to launch a beta version of the software on Thursday, which is a big deal, as it will enable anyone with internet access to use the music service and start creating and sharing music.
Elios new feature will allow for users to add more features to the service, including the ability to share their own artwork, as well as to upload and share videos of their creations.
Elianos team has already released an initial beta of the new version, which will be available on the Elias official website for free.
“We are very proud of the development of Elia and want to thank all of our fans for their support,” Haugh said in his statement.
Vexos latest update, which was released on Thursday morning, adds support for Apple Music.
The Elia team has also launched a new Elia platform, called Elia Music, which aims to give music lovers the same ease of access as Spotify.
