TruSpot is attempting to make listening and sharing of music easier and more social. The online social network has upgraded its services in order to make this happen.
According to the social network: “We have hit the reset and wiped out all former data, to restart our platform fixing all legal issues with content owners and to provide the users with nothing less than what they want. Our success story of being the first African music digital service story remains as we move forward to maintain the focus on product and keeping users, brands and content owners satisfied.”
With the reset button being pushed, TruSpot has now launched myTruSpot. The new platform has been geared up and fixed according to user feedback, which was obtained by the social media network in the past.
Rose Orizu, Community Manager with Team TruSpot maintains that: “we are going to fix what we missed out these past few years, and remain focused on building Africa’s largest music network and take our users experience beyond their expectations.”
New features include: – Love Button, Artist Self Service, Track Uploads, Spot Feed and Follow Button. The release also features a growing music catalogue featuring artists like Fela Kuti to modern age artists like Wale, a new user interface and experience design, additional product features and easier usability for TruSpot users.
Accroding to the company, unlike typical African music platforms that aim to promote manual sharing, the new myTruSpot platform has the unique ability to pull in a user’s listening habits from their actions, helping recommend the right songs for them to listen and give artists insights through detailed statistics of who is listening to them. MyTruSpot users can now follow friends, family and favorite celebrities, artists, influencers and even sports stars to see what songs they are playing and therefore discover new African music.
