BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe claimed the project puts the BBC “at the heart of what is happening now”.
“Now we can really listen to what [the audience] is into and what they love.”
From Wednesday, every song played on BBC radio will be made listed on the relevant programme website.
Anyone with a BBC account can click an “add this” button to add tracks to a personal playlist, and export them to a outside streaming service, such as YouTube, Deezer and Spotify, where they can be played back in full.
The homepage of the Playlister website also lists the BBC’s most recently-played songs, as well as the most popular or most searched-for music.
Mark Friend, BBC controller for multi-platform radio and music, said the service was “easy to use [and] accessible for everyone”, adding that it would “join up your BBC experiences with the music experiences you have on the rest of the internet”.
