BBC Playlister service goes live

A beta version of the bbc Playlister, a new digital service that allows listeners to tag any piece of music they hear on the bbc and listen to it later, has gone live.

BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe claimed the project puts the BBC “at the heart of what is happening now”.

“The whole essence of radio is to communicate: To be able to say ‘I love this song’.

“Now we can really listen to what [the audience] is into and what they love.”

The aim of Playlister is to give audiences an easy way to find out what music is being played on BBC Radio networks (and, later, on BBC TV shows) and to listen to it again.

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”.
