With a catalog of nearly 19 million high-quality music tracks 7digital, the digital media delivery company based in the United Kingdom, is a serious player in the online music space. Now, 7digital has launched its music store on Windows 8 giving Release Preview users an advance look at the 7digital app and the service it connects to. Even though it is on the Release Preview version of Windows 8, 7digital is the first music service to establish its footprint on the upcoming operating system.
The Windows 8 operating system will officially be launched on October 26th. 7digital’s app is a free download and will work across both the desktop and Metro versions of the operating system. It is available globally from the Windows Store Preview.
7Digital already has apps that are running on Windows Phone, Android, iOS, and BlackBerry PlayBook. The Windows 8 presence completes the circle. The 7digital apps offers 30-second previews and syncs your previously purchased 7digital music via 7Digital’s synchronisation service 7digital Locker. The advantage of its presence across all platforms is obvious.
CEO of 7digital said in a press release:
Developing the Windows 8 application early means we’re ideally placed to become the default digital music store for newly purchased desktops and tablets, and compatible across all other platforms. We’re also ensuring our existing customers can access their tracks and albums, and purchase new music, as soon as they buy or upgrade to Windows 8.
