BlackBerry’s cloud-based music service launches in beta

BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) Music, Research In Motion (RIM) announced the arrival of a cloud-based music service.

The service launched this week with closed beta trials in Canada, the United States and the UK.

The news came in the form of a press release from RIM stating that the new service is aimed at socially connecting music fans. The service, BBM Music is an easy-to-use cloud-based service that enables social and viral music discovery by allowing users to build a continuously evolving, community-based music library that is shared amongst their BBM Music friends.

BBM Music allows users to build a library of up to 50 songs that can be streamed or stored on their BlackBerry. Users are also able to update their music collection by swapping up to 25 songs from their library with songs from their friends’ libraries.

The BBM Music app also provides a visual timeline that shows the recent updates of all users within your community. It gives you a chronological view of community updates, including who added new friends, which songs were added or removed, which playlists were created and what comments were made by your BBM Music friends.
