Freegal - Music Service
Posted on Tuesday March 20, 2018 at 09:57AM
The Freegal Music Team are very pleased to announce the launch of the all-new Freegal Music Service on April 4, 2018. This launch is the by-product of 18 months of work which has also included the feedback of you and your patrons/customers.
On April 4, the Freegal Music Site will be down for approximately 10 hours (12:00 AM EDT - 10:00 AM EDT). When it is back up, there will be an entirely new product and new apps for the iOS and Google stores. Patrons/customers will be able to use their existing credentials, and all their playlists and stored music will be preserved. Patrons/customers will receive their customary notification from the stores that an update is ready, and those that allow automatic updates will have a seamless experience. New FAQs and a video tutorial will guide the end users through the site.
The highlights of the new service include:
1. A completely new set of mobile apps that take advantage of new technology to allow the same robust website experience in the palm of the patron’s/customer’s hand. This is what the future of our service looks like – everything on the phone. Great discovery, great functionality and an intuitive and clean interface.
2. A simple, clean and modern new interface to help the patrons/customers quickly explore the breadth and depth of our content base, which is now 15 million tracks and includes music videos and audiobooks.
The all new Freegal will still include:
1. New content every day. Our worldwide catalog contains 15 million songs from more than 30,000 music labels that originate in over 100 countries.
