Plug.dj, the social music site that lets you play music videos with a group of friends or strangers, closed its doors last year. At the time, it looked like it would never come back, but sometimes miracles do happen. It’s back and it even has all your old playlists right where you left them. In a blog post yesterday, Plug.dj explained that it’s now owned by Rowl, an investment agency that specialises in mobile startups. According to the post, the previous round of fundraising the company did before it closed helped it stay afloat long enough to get acquired, so if you contributed only to feel hurt when the company closed anyway, hopefully that provides some solace. If you were a subscriber before the site closed, you’ll find that you have subscription benefits applied to your account until the end of August.
Those changes aside, the site functions exactly the way it did before. The Plug3 extension even still works! All of your playlists are right where you left them and you still have all the points and avatar unlocks that you had before the site closed down. The company has been working on the site for the past few months, so hopefully between the new owner and the long development time, it will be more stable and have fewer financial troubles than in the past.
