Vodafone UK Launches New Music Experience

Vodafone UK has launched "VodafoneMusic" a new, simple way to allow customers to discover and buy music anytime and anyplace.

With VodafoneMusic, customers can preview songs they've never heard before for free or download their favourite tracks straight to their mobile and immediately play them through the music player on their phone. Already included on selected Vodafonelive! handsets, and available to download via Vodafonelive! on others, it is fully integrated with the Vodafonelive! Music Shop, powered by RealNetworks.

Vodafonecustomers will now be able to buy and download songs and albums using the new user- friendly interface, which has been developed, with its innovative features, to provide the ultimate mobile experience for music lovers.

The key to VodafoneMusic's simplicity is its enhanced visual library, which allows users to browse for tracks using the "Smart" search option. Consumers need not waste time inserting the full name of the artist, track or album to find what they are looking for - the search will bring up the options automatically for total ease of use.

The search option also allows customers to try before they buy' and listen to free 30 second previews of songs with no obligation to purchase - something that will come as music to customers' ears. Users will also be able to search for and purchase album art as well as being able to browse the latest charts for new releases, top downloads and local sales charts.

Music fans who have recently bought a new handset can use the "Activate My Phone" feature within the menu, which allows them access to all their existing and previously purchased music from Vodafonelive! completely free of charge, providing them with an easy and stress free way of retrieving all their downloaded tracks.
