JOOX comes jam-packed with functionality, including several hundred locally curated playlists providing a soundtrack for every mood. The application provides both a free and paid VIP experience providing offline music listening to save on mobile data. An additional feature allows for three different streaming quality options enabling listeners to manage their data consumption on-the-go.
It is now also jam-packed with Afrikaans music hits. Much of this Afrikaans music is exclusive to the app.
“This is really is wonderful news. I am excited that my music is available on JOOX along with other artists like Die Heuwels Fantasties, Jay, Riana Nel, Laurika Rauch and Steve Hofmeyr. The great thing about the app is that it is easy to use,” says celebrated singer and TV presenter Bobby van Jaarsveld.
The team will now focus on the promotion of local content and will help South African artists to connect with their fans. “We are thrilled that there is now a music streaming service that is open to engaging with local musicians to drive growth in the industry. We look forward to working with JOOX to promote local music” says Euphonik, award-winning house music legend.
It has also secured relationships with all major international record labels ensuring that music lovers are able to stream all their favourite global hits and back catalogue.
Customers who download JOOX will get their first month VIP access for FREE, as well as having access to an ongoing Freemium option. Paid VIP monthly access thereafter will cost R59.99 while one weeks’ VIP access will cost R29.99. JOOX is available from both the Apple iOS and Google Play stores.
