To Our Freegal Users,
An all-new Freegal Music Service will launch on April 4th! On that day, the Freegal Music Site will be down for approximately 10 hours (11:00 pm CST April 3rd – 9:00 am CST April 4th). When it is back up, there will be an entirely new product and new apps for the iOS and Google stores. Patrons will be able to continue using their existing credentials, and all your playlists and stored music will be preserved.
Highlights of the new service include:
1. A completely new set of mobile apps that take advantage of new technology to allow the same robust website experience in the palm of the patron’s/customer’s hand. This is what the future of our service looks like – everything on the phone. Great discovery, great functionality and an intuitive and clean interface.
2. An emphasis on curated music. We know that of our almost 3 million users, 50% of them come to the site looking to discover music rather than finding something specific. To that end, we now have over 100 playlists to meet every mood or whim. New lists will be published weekly, and they are pleasingly displayed on the site and the apps.
3. A simple, clean and modern new interface to help the patrons/customers quickly explore the breadth and depth of our content base, which is now 15 million tracks and includes music videos and audiobooks.
