(In my best old mans voice) “In my days, MTV stood for music television and played nothing but music videos!”
Those days are looong gone thanks to the wretched inception of “Reality TV” (I think I just threw up in my mouth). Thankfully we have technology and the internet to help fill the music video void left in our hearts. Now, thanks to sites like VEVO, getting your music video fix is just a few clicks away. VEVO can be accessed through a multitude of platforms and you can now include Android to that list thanks to their recently released VEVO app.
VEVO was created in partnership by Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment and the Abu Dhabi Media Company and has become the leading premium music video and entertainment service in the U.S. and Canada. With around 25,000 videos available from 3 of the top major record labels and multi-platform support it’s easy to see why.
The VEVO app for Android allows you to take advantage of their service and many of its features with the freedom of mobility. Some key features to expect from this high quality on-demand video app include:
- 7,500 Artists on Demand – VEVO brings the music to you with this fun and easy-to-use Android app, which features over 7,500 artists in more than 25,000 music videos, including exclusive videos, premieres, top charts, top playlists & VEVO original music programming.
- Use Your Voice – Know exactly what you want to watch? Activate Voice Control and search for your video by artist or song name. You can even search by Top Videos, and Premieres.
- Great Perks – Share your favorite videos with friends quickly and easily via Twitter and e-mail. Can’t live without owning your favorite video? Instantly purchase using the buy links to Amazon.
The VEVO app is free and contains pre-roll advertisements (advertisements before the video plays). You’ll have to be running Android 2.1 or higher in order to use the VEVO app along with a 3G/4G or WiFi connection.
In other VEVO/Android related news: Those of you running Android 2.2 and higher can now view VEVO music videos directly through the official YouTube app. YouTube music videos are now clearly marked with a music note symbol and also include pre-roll advertisements. Small price to pay for free video entertainment I guess.
The VEVO app literally rocks, so follow the links below for more information or to download VEVO for Android.
