Music Unlimited update: Android v1.5.3, HQ Audio and Heart Attack Channel
PlayStation Bloggers. Firstly, for those of you experiencing service disruptions on certain devices in recent weeks, sincere apologies for your inconvenience. We are aware of the issues caused by the latest Music Unlimited Service Android application version 1.6 and 1.6.1 updates for smartphones and tablets and we are working on a fix.
In the meantime, for users having problems, we have replaced the Android application on Google Play with version 1.5.3. Users should download and install this version to restore service to their Android devices, and we will update you as soon as the new update is available. Thanks for your continued patience.
Meanwhile here at Music Unlimited, we’ve just introduced ear scintillating High Quality Audio, allowing music fans to stream the entire library with even greater clarity and production level precision, than ever before. Streaming on the go? AND you’ve got limited bandwidth? We’ve been there. That’s why you can easily turn HQ Audio off whenever you like, especially if you’re out and about, and enjoy the same service without eating up all your data allowance. Then when you finally get home, turn it back on, crank up your speaker system and indulge in a wave of audio goodness. Simple.
Try it out now. What do you think? Can you hear the difference? What tracks are most impressive in HQ Audio? Please let us know.
Also, did you notice our Valentine’s-themed Heart Attack channel? We’ve compiled a collection of the PS community’s requests and our own favourites to create one definitive love-themed playlist. Including The Black Keys, Marvin Gaye, The Lumineers, Adele, The Cure, Etta James, Bloc Party, Jeff Buckley and The Roots, you’ll love what you hear and it’s so good in fact, we’re keeping it live for the next month. Check it out here.
As ever, our catalogue is expanding by the day with the latest releases and hits. This month includes Foals third studio album Holy Fire and Canadian sisterly duo Tegan and Sara make a splash this side of the pond with the widely publicised Hearthrob. Surf rock cool kids Beach Fossils Clash The Truth is out mid-month along with axe legend and all around icon Johnny Marr’s debut The Messenger.
Finally, in line with the Valentine theme, for the soppy or sentimental among us Love Songs by Destiny’s Child will provide the backdrop to reminisce and romanticise the night away (if that’s your kind of thing).
