MNC Wireless Berhad (MNC), a mobile and digital solutions provider, announces the release of WOWLOUD, Malaysia’s first cloud music streaming service on BlackBerry World. The WOWLOUD music app allows BlackBerry users to access tonnes of songs on the go.
The availability of WOWLOUD is part of the move by BlackBerry to expand its focus on its store to include a wider selection of media based applications such as video and music players. The WOWLOUD app is currently only accessible through the new BlackBerry 10. This means BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 support the app when it arrives in Malaysia.
“We at MNC Wireless are always working hard to make WOWLOUD available on as many devices as possible and the launch of WOWLOUD on BlackBerry is certainly a milestone for us. Although BlackBerry is predominately viewed as an enterprise device, the move to include rich media content such as music will definitely appeal to the regular consumers. We look forward to the arrival of BlackBerry 10 smartphones to the Malaysia shore soon,” says Sasha Lee, Acting CEO, MNC.
Users will be able to search and instantly stream their music without the need to download and store it onto their devices. The app also allows custom-create playlists, subscription to other users’ playlists and sharing music with friends on social networks such as Facebook, Google+, Twitter and BlackBerry Messenger (BBM).
After downloading the app, users can subscribe to the WOWLOUD Premium Plus account at www.wowloud.com. Priced at RM14.90 per month, users can immediately activate their Premium Plus account upon subscription. There is also WOWLOUD free for users to try out the services.
