The BBC has announced that it is releasing a new global service called Playlister.
Playlister lets users listening to music on BBC save, favorite, and add tracks to their own personalized playlist. Users can view and store their playlists online and can also export them to BBC’s digital music partners such as YouTube, Spotify, and Deezer. Playlister users also get a chance to see music recommendations from BBC DJs and presenters.
BBC features a lot of new music across its radio, TV, and online services. With Playlister, listeners can collate the music that they like by signing in to the service, click to remember the tracks they’ve been listening to on BBC, and then save their favorites to their playlist.
Playlist users also get to discover new music as recommended by their favorite DJs or program presenters on BBC. Once they have their playlists, users can export them to their preferred music service so they can listen to them in full anytime they want.
Playlist will be launched first on PC and via a mobile browser. Aside from looking into partnering with other music services, BBC is also looking into integrating Playlister with the already existing BBC iPlayer Radio app.
