Nearly all the music on Grooveshark has been uploaded by users. All music users uploaded is transcoded into an MP3 file with a maximum bit rate of 192 kbps. Grooveshark Radio is a great way to discover new music. You can select a song (or multiple), then click the Radio button on the lower right side of the screen, and Grooveshark will continuously add similar songs based on the song/songs already in your queue. If you don’t like a song the radio chooses for you, simply hit the button in the corner of the song box and you won’t hear that artist again in this radio session. If you really like a song, hit the button to hear more of that artist and artists like them
Even though you will not find any announcements about the app, but a lot of discussion about the app and bugs related to it is going on at the Forum.
