Irish startup Soundwave has been bought by music streaming giant Spotify for an undisclosed sum.

Soundwave, founded in 2012, makes an app that tracks people's listening habits across multiple services.

It then collates the data in order to suggest music based on the tastes of friends or people that users follow.

The app has been downloaded more than 1.5 million times across 190 countries since its launch.

Spotify, which is based in Sweden, said: "The acquisition of Soundwave will help Spotify to enhance the overall consumer experience on Spotify."

The company has also acquired voice message service Cord Project.
