Google Cloud powers the Audiotube platform enabling Audiotube to pass on such a low cost to entry for its users.

The music industry has seen incredible change over the past few years the most notable being the emergence of Streaming. With more and more digital stores online Artists and Labels need a solution that facilitates distribution and royalty collection. More important, they need a solution that does this in an affordable and transparent way. Working closely with Google Cloud, Audiotube has developed and delivered one of the most affordable and transparent distribution solutions on the planet. As we enter 2018 we look forward to also releasing the Audiotube A.I. Manager as well as the Audiotube Digital Marketing Algorithm that will help our Artists and Labels better arbitrage between Digital Marketing spend and return on investment. This new functionality will again be powered by Google Cloud technology and is a great example of taking the best of Google’s powerful datamining and processing tech and passing it on to our users.”
