BBM Music service goes live in Canada
By Quentin Burgess on Nov 02, 2011
Today, Blackberry announced
that their BBM Music Service is out of beta and rolling out in Canada, the United States and Australia, with more regions coming soon.
As per the release
, BBM Music is "an easy-to-use cloud-based service that enables social and viral music discovery by allowing users to build an evolving, community-based music library that is shared amongst their BBM Music friends. The size of the music library continues to grow as new friends join the community and each user can select music from a catalog with millions of songs from leading music companies - Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group and EMI."
Deemed "Music Made Social
", BBM Music users can add 50 songs to their BBM Music profile from the millions of songs available. By adding friends to the service, a user gains access to their collection as well - so the more friends you add, the more music you have access to. Users can also create playlists using songs from their collection as well as their friends' songs. Users can also comment on their friends' collections, and chat with BBM friends from within the app. All of this activity is displayed in a homepage timeline, allowing BBM Music users to easily see what their friends are listening to. Music fans can also listen offline, by caching their collection to a microSD card.
The BBM Music Premium experience is available now for a monthly subscription of $4.99, and is launching with a free 60 day trial. To download BBM Music to your Blackberry, click here
