Smart has a new music service SPINNR, which is an app downloadable in Android devices and accessible from the desktop at http://www.spinnr.ph/desktop/.
A first in the country, SPINNR offers a music-streaming subscription service with unlimited access to more than three million songs from the catalogs of MCA Music, Inc. and Sony Music Entertainment through a partnership with local licensee Ivory Music and Video.
Smart already has introduced Smart Music months ago and SPINNR will be powered by Smart Music.
SPINNR offers unlimited music streaming at the most affordable rates, playlist customization and access, and music download discounts.
Since it works like an online radio streaming music to your smartphone or PC, SPINNR requires data connectivity.
Music streaming subscriptions varies from as low as P7 to P49. For example, the SPINNR Plus 15 package costs P15 for two weeks of music streaming. All you have to do is to subscribe to the package via the site or the app to enjoy unlimited full-track streaming of the widest selection of songs, according to Mellissa Limcaoco, head of Smart’s Innovation and Product Development Group.
The SPINNR Plus 15 package also offers a 20 % discount for full song downloads, further lowering down music download rates of the P10-15 per song from the service.
Other packages offered by SPINNR:
- SPINNR Plus 7 – or P7 for 7 days, with 10 % music download discount
- SPINNR Plus Premium – or P29 for 30 days, with 30 % download discount
- SPINNR Plus VIP – or P49 for 30 days, with 50 % song download discount plus first and exclusive access to Smart Music’s events, promos, and other perks.
The SPINNR Android app features a built in music player, which plays the music you chose from the service. The app features an interactive layout, with the home page presenting song albums, artists, new releases, including recommendations and exclusives from SPINNR. You can pick songs and create your own playlist.
You can also get recommendations based on the music you like and you can even post your favorite songs on Twitter and Facebook. There’s even the SPINNR radio, which plays songs even if you don’t attach earphones to your smartphone.
The SPINNR service can be linked to your Smart, Talk ‘N Text or Sun Cellular mobile number, from where you can securely log-in and avail of subscription packages and purchase songs by paying through your prepaid load or charging to your postpaid bill.
You can link all your devices into a single account, allowing music library from these different devices accessible anytime and anywhere.
“We envision SPINNR as a community of Filipino music lovers having access to the best and the biggest collection of music anytime, anywhere through their mobile,” said Lmcaoco. “And we will design our programs and activities—whether music festivals, artist engagements, independent music production and promotion—to cater to those who have music deeply integrated in the way they live life. SPINNR is music made awesome.”
Those who wish to try the SPINNR service, Smart will be offering unlimited music streaming at no cost for the first 15 days. Registration is open to all Smart, Talk ‘N Text and Sun Cellular subscribers via web or mobile browser or via the app from Google Play.
