It is officially confirmed that the music streaming service Audiogalaxy will join Dropbox. What will happen with the service is yet unknown, but with the company no longer accepting new users basically means that DropBox will be shutting the service down.
Current users will only be able to use the streaming features until the end of the year and the rest of the service will shut down some time in 2013.
We created Audiogalaxy to make people fall in love with music. Over the last few years we've built a wonderful music experience on the web and mobile devices, attracting loyal users from all over the world.
Today, we are thrilled to announce our team is joining Dropbox! We are excited about the opportunity to join the amazing folks at Dropbox and bring great new experiences to 100M+ Dropbox users.
As part of the transition, Audiogalaxy will no longer accept new signups. Current users can continue to use the personal streaming features of Audiogalaxy. Mixes will be available for subscribers until December 31st, 2012.

Audioglalaxy is one of the pioneers in the field of service sharing music. Although in the early days it was a web-based UI with a P2P client and was temporarily shut down in 2002, they ended up refocusing on a personal music streaming service that would stream MP3s from a user's hard drive to mobile devices. Audiogalaxy CEO Michael Merhej didn't reveal any plans only stating that "there are natural synergies in the talent our team possesses and Dropbox's mission."
