Technology[edit]

Style Jukebox consists of cloud-based services for user management, music storage and programmatic interfaces (APIs); and clients for music streaming and storage on desktop and mobile operating systems.

Upload is available on the desktop client only; Style Jukebox enables users to drop music files and folders in the music player to be automatically uploaded and synced with Style Jukebox cloud-based services and made available to any other of the user's computers and devices that also have the Style Jukebox client installed.[9]

Style Jukebox cloud-based services automatically transcodes formats to match the device's supported formats. For example, a 320kbps WMA is transcoded to 320kbps MP3 on iOS devices and FLAC lossless is transcoded to WMA lossless on Windows Phone devices.[citation needed]
