One of the most marked developments of the smartphone was the ability to play music, and this led to almost everyone who owned a smartphone also using it as their MP3 player. But until the internet became available, it was impossible to listen to new tracks unless they had been preloaded. When 3G was launched, Tubidy helped millions of phone users discover new music through live streaming and free downloads. Tubidy is now looking to make the best of 4G, by expanding their services to include new sections that allow users to discover the hottest and funniest new videos. —
The new video section is designed to help people discover trending viral videos and Vines. Much like Tubidy Music, Tubidy Video allows individuals to search by major categories that are trending right now, including art, science, World Cup, America’s Got Talent and more.
The site also allows individuals to download the videos and songs, with Tubidy MP3’s and videos can be saved from the website to be viewed offline later, ideal for public transport or when out in the country. The vines are updated with the most popular in their category shown first, so individuals are guaranteed to see the best of the web.
A spokesperson for Tubidy explained, “We have moved into video because increasingly our users are using video as a source of entertainment while out and about that had previously been dominated by music. Our music section is one of the most comprehensive and exciting on the web, so we wanted to ensure our users could find the same quality of service for videos without having to look elsewhere. Equally, this multimedia approach should now drive new traffic to our site, as we collate the very best of the web’s online video content so people needn’t spend hours looking themselves.”
Tubidy is a mobile platform for discovering music, with a top songs section, top artists and top albums to help individuals discover what’s hot right now. It offers MP3 streaming and legal downloading, and now has a section dedicated to discovering the best new video content and vines.
