BlackBerry introduces social music sharing service

Research In Motion, the company behind BlackBerry, has launched a new music service that expands your collection as you invite more of your friends to join in.

BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) Music allows users to build a community-based music library.

Members can share playlists, grow their collection and discover new music from the major recording studios – Sony, Warner, Universal and EMI.  

BlackBerry Messenger is an instant messaging app which makes it possible for BlackBerry users to send free messages to each other in real time.

Users can try BBM Music for free on a 30-day trial and select their first 50 songs from a catalogue or more than a million tracks.

The next step is to invite your BlackBerry user friends to download the app and sign up for the service which will then give you access to their 50 songs as well.

The more friends you invite the more songs you’ll be able to enjoy.

If you have 25 friends on BBM Music – you’ll have access to 1250 songs.

The BBM Music service will allow users to share their favourite 50 tracks with their friends

As the friend list expands and your community grows it’s possible to chat in real time from within the app while you’re listening to your music.

You can ask your friends to share their favourite songs to hear while they’re driving, while they’re working out or best tunes for your next party.

And because you’re drawing from your friends’ various tastes the suggestions are going to give you lots of choices and options you probably never thought of.

Each month you and all your friends can swap out 25 of their songs for 25 new tracks so you’ll never be stuck with the same music.

Your music can either be streamed or cached and stored on the your BlackBerry device’s SD card for offline listening.

Once the 30-day free trial ends, users can sign up to the service for just $5.99 a month.

The BBM Music app is a free app and can be downloaded now.Rse
