The BBC Music app launches today across all mobiles and tablets, Android and iOS, and is full of exclusive content from live performances to interviews. With a vast library of music content and experience, BBC running all the biggest UK radio stations, the app promises to deliver that to you.
The BBC’s director of music, Bob Shennan said: “The BBC Music app lets you get straight to the music you love, from In Concert and Live Lounge sessions to Jools Holland, with the tap of a button. This is just the start for us, and we want to hear from users over time to make the BBC Music app the best that it can be, so they can enjoy music from across the BBC – whenever and wherever they are.”
The app doesn’t just give you access to a wealth of music content but will also personalise it’s content recommendations around your tastes. When you start the app you can input the styles of music you like and from there it will offer up a platter of live sessions, playlists, interviews, programmes, events and more all in a tailored stream unique to you. The new BBC Music app is also integrated with streaming services so you can add any music you discover straight into your playlists.
