BlackBerry Messenger Music comes to the UK, for under £5 a month

Canadian mobile phone manufacturer Research In Motion has unveiled their BBM music app is now available in the UK, with access to millions of music tracks for just £4.99.

RIM’s BlackBerry Messenger Music is a cloud-based service, which offers social and viral music discovery. This allows BlackBerry users to build an evolving, community-based music library – which is then shared amongst their BBM friends.

The size of the music library grows, just as new friends join the community where each user can select 50 tracks each month from a catalogue of millions of songs from Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group and EMI.

Those 50 tracks can be shared with other BlackBerry owners running BBMM, where their music can in turn be shared – with no limits on the amount of music that can be accessible through these means.

25 tracks can be swapped out each month, for another 25 with the ability to even invite non BBM 6 friends to the service.

Other features are the ability to create multiple playlists from music in your profile as well as all of your friend’s profiles, with one click shuffle of the entire collection of music from your BBM music community.

The BBM Music service is available now in the UK for a monthly subscription of £4.99, for devices as far back as the BlackBerry 8520 and 9300 products.
