Today we’re beyond excited to unveil the latest advancement in playlist technology: 8tracks 3.0 on Android, available as of today on Google Play. Coming on the heels of a complete redesign of our iPhone, iPad, and Xbox apps earlier this year, the new release features a similar improvement of the design and navigation we brought to those apps. This means we officially have a complete roster of new apps in time for the new school year, which experts predict will improve student test scores by as much as 1000%.
8tracks 3.0 is chock-full of new features:
Timeline: Ready access on your home screen to playlists you’ve recently listened to and playlists that are coming next. Past and future are at your fingertips through what could only be described as time wizardry.
Explore: Change the “channel” and listen to seriously whatever the heck you want using any combination of genres, activities, moods, and themes.
Sidebar: One-tap command center for all the functions of the app including Home, Explore, Feed, Liked Playlists, Favorite Tracks, and more.
Artist Info: Tap any track title to learn more about the artist who made it, and get ready to impress your friends and loved ones with the insane amount of music knowledge you’re about to have (thanks to our friends at OpenAura).
Android is the world’s most popular mobile platform, and we’ve seen significant growth around the world. If each second of Android streaming were a pizza, we would have enough to cover the entire surface of the moon! Whether or not that’s true, just think about it: how cool would a Pizza Moon™ be? THE POINT IS over the last year we’ve grown by more than 300% in the US, Canada, Mexico, UK, Brazil, Germany, India, the Philippines, South Korea, Israel, France, Singapore — this is just going to become a list of countries on Earth so we’ll stop there.
