Music software company MOGA has announced that it’s ceasing support for its cloud-based music software in the United States and Canada.
In a blog post, MOGAs software developer and chief executive officer, Michael Hahn, explained the company’s decision to pull the plug on its cloud music software and other software platforms.
“MOGA was founded in 2006, and its products and services have been widely adopted by millions of music lovers around the world,” Hahn said in the blog post.
“We’re announcing today that we are ceasing our support for the MOGAFe cloud music service in the U.S. and Canada as we transition to a new strategy that is focused on the cloud.”
Music users who previously purchased music using their existing accounts will be able to access their files on their smartphones through a new “Mogafee Cloud Music” option on the companys website, which will be available to download for free.
MOGAS was founded by Michael Hensons former business partner and now MOGa’s chief executive.
Hahn’s blog post did not mention any specific reasons for the decision, but MOGas said it was part of a broader effort to focus on its core products and provide a better experience for users.
MGOA, MGOa Music, MGoa Music Free, MGMAM Music, Music Unlimited, MMG Music, SoundCloud, Soundcloud Free, SoundGram Music, Spotify, Vibes Music, ViroMusic Free, Xplo Music, Yandex Music, XtraViro, Ycombinator, Zulu Music, Baidu Music, Alibaba Music, Tencent Music, China Mobile Music, and many more.
The company said it will continue to offer its cloud audio and video streaming services, including SoundCloud and SoundCloud Music Unlimited for $5.99 a month.

The company said that its cloud content delivery platform Zulu.com will continue as an option for free after the migration to a “cloud music service.”
MGOA and other music software companies have been criticized for their aggressive pricing and cloud services, which often cost more than $1,000 per month, or even more, depending on the services.
The move comes just a week after the music industry issued a report saying that some of the major players in the music music industry were using software to boost their revenue.
MMG, SoundBox, and Spotify have all been accused of charging too much and taking advantage of their users’ music tastes.
“While MGOAs cloud music offering is no longer available in the USA and Canada, we will continue working with the U,K.
and Australia to offer our cloud music offerings to our users,” Henss blog post said.
“In the coming weeks we will be announcing our plans to transition MGOs cloud music services to a ‘cloud service free’ plan for those customers who choose to purchase a subscription for the time being.”
Hahn said that the transition to “cloud services free” was not planned as a result of a major data breach.
