PICKERING, ON, CANADA, NOVEMBER 7, 2023 – BluOSÒ, the original hi-res multi-room music management platform developed and licensed to premium audio brands by Lenbrook International, is excited to announce new content partners to its ecosystem with the addition of two important music streaming services, Pandora and Presto Music. Starting today, both Pandora and Presto Music are accessible as natively integrated services in key markets, adding to the broad choice of streaming options that BluOS users already have with dozens of supported services that add to the variety of enriched and personalized audio experiences possible within the BluOS platform.
Pandora, one of the true original music streaming pioneers and available exclusively in the United States, is renowned for its exceptional music discovery features and expert curated radio stations. Its integration offers BluOS music lovers access to another seamless and intuitive way to enjoy their favorite tracks and discover new music based on listeners’ tastes.
BluOS users in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, can enjoy Presto Music, one of the world’s leading authorities on classical and jazz recordings.
