BEAT BY "THE BEATPACKING COMPANY" Remember that time you wanted to listen to that song that was just released by your favorite K-Pop artist, but no one uploaded them on Soundcloud yet? Yeah, me too. Now, with the "BEAT" app, you don"t have to worry about waiting for fan uploads or have to listen to lesser quality versions via YouTube!
The "BEAT" app, created by "The Beatpacking Company," is notably the easiest and the fastest way to stream your favorite K-Pop songs and share them with your friends.
"BEAT" users can tune into more than twenty pre-curated channels or playlists by genre, occasion, mood, and even weather! In addition to gaining access to unique playlists created by the app, users can also create their own personalized stations called, "Starred Channels." The "Starred Channel" will gather all the tracks that you have favorited and compile them into one clean list.
What"s unique about "BEAT" though is that it presents celebrity DJ programs exclusive to "BEAT," where fans can listen to songs that their favorite artists and idols love. You can follow these artists and idols and get updates on what they are currently listening to. Members of WINNER, Yonghwa, 2NE1"s Dara and more are updating their shared playlists as we speak.
Lastly, there are various practical functions such as a sleep timer, which you can use to set a time for the application to shut off, without you having to do it manually in the middle of the night. There are also settings for social features and alarms as well.
For passive listeners like myself, who are also interested in unexpectedly coming across eargasmic songs, the endless pre-curated playlists as well as the Korean radio stations are like a heaven-sent angel. The best part? Everything that you"re listening to, and the App itself, is FREE. No gimmicks here.
In addition to being able to stream for free, there will be a special giveaway event coming up soon for new and old users where they will get the chance to win tickets to a top K-Pop idol concert coming up this year.
As of May 2015, "BEAT" is available in Argentina, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, U.K. and Vietnam. More countries will be available soon!
