The Official Top 40 coming to your phone!


The Official Top 40 coming to your phone!

By Dan Lane

The Official Charts Company and technology partner MusicQubed have teamed up with O2 to bring the Official Singles Chart Top 40 direct to your phone with O2 Tracks!

O2 Tracks, which is available now for Apple and Android devices (BlackBerry and Windows Phone versions will be launching soon!), makes the entire Top 40, as well as a changing selection of curated playlists, available to listen to on your phone wherever you are and whenever you want it! Subscriptions start at just £1 per week following a two month free trial for O2 customers, or a two week free trial for customers of other networks.

The app downloads and caches tracks to your handset overnight, which means no streaming, no buffering, no adverts; just all the latest hits available instantly on mobile device. Chart updates are downloaded automatically via WiFi so playlists are never out of date. This is spot on if you are a bit rubbish at keeping on top of downloading new tunes. Just let the app do it for you, simple! And if that’s not enough, there are daily celebrity news updates, and a weekly AppCast hosted by Scott Mills!

Official Charts Company Managing Director, Martin Talbot says, "We are really excited to be bringing the Official Singles Chart together with O2 and Musicqubed on this fantastic new service. We have no doubts that it will be the Number 1 mobile music service of 2013."

You can download O2 Tracks now from the App Store for Apple devices and from the Google Play for Android devices.
