Research In Motion’s rumored BB music service officially launched. The details regarding the BBM Music Service are pretty much in line with the speculations that surfaced the internet world during last week, when it was revealed that RIM was close to signing all of the top four record label companies.
The new service by RIM permits sharing music and employs the BBM to circulate the word and form shared networks of music. You can create your own music profile that contains your top 50 choice of songs and by using the BlackBerry messenger, you can ask your friends to become a part of your music network. Every one that joins can share their list of songs, helping in creating a pool of favorite music songs, which can be accessed by anyone who is on the music network.
You can form your personal playlists from the songs that are available on the network. You can also comment on the shared songs, making the whole experience social and more fun. Moreover, joined network members can also view the songs added/deleted by their friends and while playing a specific song from the playlist, you can also see as to which of your friend added the specific song. Lastly, you will also be able to see the total number of times your song was played by the network members.
But there is a slight twist to all of the fun since the trial period of the BBM Music Service allows you to check the service and get used to it but once it is over, you have to pay $4.99 for the service. Another drawback is the limit on the songs that can be swapped each month as the total number of songs you can swap are 25.
