Deezer lifts music streaming cap; Galaxy S5 users get premium access

deezer-unlimited-music-streaming-premium-access-galaxy-s5-users-0211

Taking its cue from competitors like Spotify and Rdio, startup company Deezer has made its music streaming services available for free to everyone, regardless of subscription plan.

The lifting of restrictions comes after nearly three years of imposing a listening limit for free users. Before, users were allowed up to only 10 hours of free access. Now, Deezer users can listen to and stream music without limit, but this privilege comes at a price: you will be hearing audio ads from time to time.

Six-month premium trial period

The company also partnered with Samsung Europe to provide 6 months of premium Deezer access for free to new owners of the Samsung Galaxy S5.

Deezer is also offering a 15-day trial to let you experience the full features of the service. Once you setup a new Deezer account on your Android device, you also instantly activate your 15-day free Premium+ access to Deezer, which grants you ad-free access both on your mobile devices and on the Web.

Ads will begin appearing only after the trial period, unless you opt to continue your Premium+ subscription for a monthly fee of EUR 9.99 (about US.88).

Added features

In addition to unlimited access for everyone, Deezer also announced new “smart” features generally meant to personalize the user’s music experience across devices. One such feature is Flow, which takes a look at your music library and your past streams, and, based on those, suggests music for you to try next.

Another “smart” feature is Playlist Radio, which lets you get help from Deezer Editors in creating playlists. Another feature is Artist Radio, which lets you listen smartly and without limits to music from your artist of choice.

Other updates to Deezer include improved advanced search, new music genres, and music discovery/exploration based on geographic region.

The company also launched the beta version of Deezer for Mac, which enables Mac users to merge their music with their Deezer libaries, thus allowing the music to be accessible on mobile devices, tablets, and desktops.

Do you use Deezer? Do you think that it has enough potential to sit beside — or even lord it over — other music streaming titans like Spotify?

PSA: Don’t forget to signup for All Access

If you’re like me, you cancelled all other song subscriptions right after Google announced All Access at its annual Google I/O convention. If you’re not not like me, you’ve seemingly been tossing around the belief of subscribing, but something major to hinder in mind is that this is the last week you could sign-up and take virtue of the. 99/mo value tag. After June 30, All Access will cost interested subscribers. 99 per month. It’s nonetheless not a foul price, but the discount early adopters acquire can be truly nice, and it isn’t something you should miss out on if you like saving money.
 
in case you haven’t used All Access yet, you may sign up for the one month trial, and in the event you do that on or before June 30, you’ll still be able to take advantage of the. 99 subscription cost after your trial expires sometime in June. It might be difficult to make the jump from Spotify’s massive library of 25 million tracks, but you could bet that Google will most likely make certain that All Access has all of the latest, popular, and renowned songs available. Not to mention the fact that more tracks will be added to Google’s personal library everyday, and who knows, maybe Google’s library will eventually surpass Spotify’s?
Do you intend on making the bounce to All Access? If not, why?

    Yelp opens beta tester program for next Android app, uses Google+ to control access

    Yelp Beta

    Yelp wants your help testing out their next Android app update. Before releasing their next update to their Android app in the Google Play Store, Yelp has opened a beta test program. Beta testers will need to request access to the Yelp Android Beta Testers community on Google+ to get started, then be ready to be awesome! It’s a requirement.

    Interested in receiving the latest version of the Yelp Android app before everyone else? You’re in the right place!

    So far, there is no actual beta app build to test, but signing up ensures that you get in when it does become available.

    YelpStatYelp is a business directory built on community reviews, 53 million reviews and counting. They cover many business categories, but are best known for their shopping and restaurant reviews; in-fact, they just announced their top 100 list of best rated places to eat in the US. Spoiler alert: top honors went to a shack in Hawaii.

    If you are interested in helping test out the new Yelp beta app when it becomes available, head over to their Google+ Community page to get started. If beta is not for you, you can still find the best businesses near you on their stable app in the Google Play Store.

    What are your thoughts on beta programs – are the newest features worth a few bugs? Did your favorite place to eat make it onto the top 100 list?

    App Ops access available to KitKat via new third-party app

    app-ops

    When Android 4.3 Jelly Bean first arrived it was discovered that the update contained a hidden permissions manager called App Ops, which could easily be accessed through 3rd party applications in the Play Store.

    With KitKat’s debut, the ability to access App Ops appeared broken, leading some to believe that the permissions manager had been completely removed from KitKat. As it turns out, it is still there — it’s just hidden even deeper.

    Using the new Apps Ops app from Color Tiger allows you to regain access to Google’s Apps Ops manager, giving you the ability to use all the same features as found in Android 4.3. Looking for more functionality? The developer has even added a “Pro” version that adds extra features to the mix.

    Unlike the free version, the Pro app requires root access due to the fact that it uses a tweaked app that is installed to the /system/app directory. The enhanced version includes notifications, batch grant/revoke permissions and more. While both versions of the app are designed with KitKat in mind, Color Tiger’s app will actually work with Android 4.3 devices as well.

    Of course it’s important to note that Google’s App Ops permission manager is still an unfinished product, and that messing around with individual permissions can break the functionality of some apps and services if you aren’t careful.

    If you are interested in checking out the permissions manager in Android 4.3 or 4.4, you’ll want to head over to Google Play and pick up the free version. For those looking for the Pro edition, you can get the extra features via an in-app purchase.

    T-Mobile brings mobile hotspot access and domestic data roaming to prepaid plans

    T-mobile

    T-Mobile continues to switch up the way they do business with their uncarrier initiative. Not only has T-Mobile ditched conventional contracts and added an early upgrade program, the uncarrier recently unveiled plans to bring free global data roaming to its smartphones and 200MB of free data for all tablets compatible with their network. It looks like the changes don’t end there, either.

    According to several reports, T-Mobile has quietly rolled out some new changes to its prepaid plans. Specifically, T-Mobile now provides free mobile hotspot tethering from its devices.

    Reaching out to T-Mobile for confirmation, Android Central was issued this statement:

    Starting Oct. 20, T-Mobile will give pay-in-advance customers access to domestic data roaming across the U.S. for the first time. Additionally, pay-in-advance customers that sign up for our Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan will also have access to 2.5GB of Smartphone Mobile Hotspot (i.e. tethering). Only T-Mobile gives pay-in-advance customers data roaming AND Smartphone Mobile Hotspot at no extra charge with their Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan.

    So that means that the Unlimited 4G plan now provides 2.5GB of free tethering as well as 50MB of domestic data roaming access. T-Mobile didn’t specifically acknowledge its prepaid limited data plans, but looking to the chart below we learn that the plan includes 500MB tethering and 10MB domestic data roaming, with the plan including the same 2.5GB tethering and 50MB roaming as found with the unlimited plan.

    t-mobile-plans

    Let’s be honest, the amount of free domestic data roaming provided is tiny, but it’s hard to complain when you’re getting something for free. The real news here is that T-Mobile prepaid customers no longer have to worry about paying a mobile hotspot fee or incurring their carrier’s wraith if they try to find a way around mobile hotspot restrictions. No, it’s not “uncarrier sized” news, but it’s still a welcome change.

    What do you think of the new minor changes to T-Mobile’s prepaid plans – excited by the inclusion of tethering or not?

    RealPlayer Cloud announced, lets you access your video anywhere

    Even with the almost omnipresent of mobile devices with decent cameras, sharing and showing your shots anywhere and everywhere is still not as easy as it should be, especially when videos are concerned. RealPlayer, a popular name in digital media circles, thinks it has the solution with its RealPlayer Cloud service and accompanying mobile and web apps.

    e79376a615loud 0.jpg RealPlayer Cloud announced, lets you access your video anywhere

    Like any cloud service, the premise behind RealPlayer Cloud is simple: store all your videos on the cloud. From there, users will be able to access and share their videos with anyone and with any supported device. Users can do the usual streaming of videos but can also opt to download the video instead. There is no time or size limit to video access and RealPlayer automatically transforms the video into a format conducive for high-quality streaming.

    Together with the cloud service, RealPlayer is also releasing companion apps that will enable users to access RealPlayer Cloud from a variety of devices. Supported devices include any Android or iOS device, Windows PCs, and even TVs via Roku Players. But users don’t need an app just to be able to watch a video as RealPlayer Cloud also supports streaming to a web browser. RealPlayer lists all the features of RealPlayer Cloud in the promotional video below.

    RealPlayer Cloud is now available in the US and subscribers in the US and Canada will get 2 GB for cloud storage for free, with additional storage options starting at .99 a month. The apps and the service will also be rolling out to other devices and territories in a few months.

    Google Play Music All Access now available in nine lucky European countries

    Play Music All Access 1600 aa

    Bummed that Google’s Music All Access service isn’t available in your home country just yet? Don’t worry, Google is slowly but surely improving the situation! Just last month, Google expanded the service to Australia and New Zealand. Now nine lucky countries in Europe can also rock out to the unlimited jams provided by an All Access subscription.

    The service is available to consumers living in Austria, Belgium, France, the UK, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Portugal and Spain with a 30 day free trial. If you sign up before September 15th, you can even secure the service for just €7.99 monthly, for the subscription’s life.

    For those that wait, you’ll have to pony up £9.99 monthly.

    “With today’s launch, Google Play moves one step closer to your ultimate digital entertainment destination, where you can find, enjoy and share your favourite apps, games, books, movies, magazines, TV shows and music on your Android phone or tablet,” boasts Google Play Music product manager Paul Joyce.

    Well said Joyce! Google Play content certainly has come a long way in a short amount of time. Hopefully this is just the beginning of a bigger push towards bringing expanded Google Play services to more countries across the globe.

    To sign up, head over to Google Play. For those in the nine European nations mentioned above, have you managed to sign up for the service yet? If so, what do you think?

    Boingo offer gives hotspot access to Galaxy Tab 3 and Note 8.0 users

    Samsung has announced a special perk for those planning to buy a Galaxy Note 8.0 or Galaxy Tab 3 tablet. This perk is being announced in conjunction with Boingo and means one year of free hotspot access. This offer is available for those in North America and includes access to any of the 35,000 hotspots that are located between the US, Canada and Mexico.

    53bef34e290x3441.jpg Boingo offer gives hotspot access to Galaxy Tab 3 and Note 8.0 users

    Those considering a purchase should look towards any of the Galaxy Tab 3 models including the 7.0, 8.0 or 10.1. The Galaxy Note 8.0 offer will apply to the WiFi-only model and not the cellular connected carrier branded model. With that, the Boingo offer will be included in the box.

    Details coming from Samsung instruct customers to look for the in-pack instructions to get up and running. Otherwise, while this offer is giving free Boingo access, it is arriving as part of Samsung’s Galaxy Perks program. Bottom line here, those planning to purchase either a Galaxy Note 8.0 or Galaxy Tab 3 now have an additional perk that may help shift them from thinking to buying.

    On the topic of the Galaxy Tab 3, this family of devices came available for sale in the US as of yesterday, July 7th. As mentioned this family includes the 7.0, 8.0 and 10.1 models and they are priced at 9, 9 and 9 respectively. They can all be found with various retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and others.

    The Galaxy Note 8.0 arrived for sale in the US back in April. This tablet is priced at 9 and happens to be one that we spent some hands-on time with. Those considering the Galaxy Note 8.0 may benefit from our in-depth review we published shortly after the release.
