Audio/Music streaming is the buzz these days. Users are shunning purchasing music CDs and literally switching over to online music streaming. They are essentially streaming anything and everything from music to audio books to podcasts on e-learning , self-help, spiritual and religious content, sports updates to world news.
Audio streaming has grown exponentially over the years due to improved WiFi connectivity, better 4G speeds and the choice in terms of data plans that consumers are offered by telcos.
Music is readily accessible while flying, while driving, in coffee shops and practically anywhere on-the-go.
So if you are a content owner/distributor and are looking to start your own audio streaming service, Muvi offers this incredible end-to-end SaaS based platform that lets you host your own Audio streaming platform literally in a few clicks. No coding knowledge required whatsoever!!
I bet you are as excited as I was when I first discovered how easy it is to launch a streaming platform and that too at a fraction of the cost of what it would be if you were to build your own platform.
Keeping in mind this rising trend of audio streaming and based on several client requests, we are pleased to announce the recent launch of the Audio playlist and Queue feature which is superbly integrated with our audio streaming platform.
Muvi is a unique OTT platform provider that offers a unique combination of Video on Demand, Live Streaming, Physical goods and Audio Streaming.
Playlists are an essential component of any Audio streaming service as they allow a platform owner to showcase and highlight tracks based on various parameters, like a music streaming service would want to add playlists for its listeners based on mood, genre, artists, band etc…
With Muvi’s playlist feature, you can now do exactly that! To start using the playlist feature, simply click on New Playlist and give a name to the playlist. You can add a cover image and description to the playlist as well. Upon creating the playlist, tracks can be added to the playlist by right-clicking on a track and selecting “Add to Playlist”. The playlist that had most recently been created appears in the list of playlists. Tracks can also be dragged and dropped into the playlist. Tracks can be removed from the playlist as well. Some other features include, deleting a playlist, following / unfollowing a playlist, finding a playlist with the search option by entering the name of the playlist.
Playlists also allow your listeners to create their own custom playlists! So in case a user wants to create and save a playlist for their personal preferences, they can do that in matter of just a few clicks! This is a great way to let your users and listeners personalize their experience on the platform and to take charge of their own listening habits. So go ahead and give playlists a try!

Add to Queue is one of the most used feature on any streaming platform, and keeping with the trend, Muvi is pleased to announce the addition of this feature on it’s OTT Platform.
Add to queue feature when enabled, will allow your users to add tracks to the listening queue and will be played next as per the queue order. This is a very simple yet effective feature that can come in handy to your listeners. The Queue feature lets your listeners play audio content one after the other automatically. This creates a temporary playlist so one can view songs added to the queue. These songs can be removed from the queue individually or by selecting all and removing all songs from the queue. Moreover, listeners have the ability to save the queue as a playlist. So when a song is played from an album where all songs in that album have been added to the queue, all songs in the album will be played automatically one after another.
