How do I discover new music through the Boomplay application?

You can discover new music right from the ‘Discover’ page using any of the menus provided: Slides, Trending, Charts, New Releases, Albums, Artists, and Genres. You can also use the ‘Search’ menu with artist names, tracks,s and album names.


How Does Boomplay sell Music?


Paid Streams:

When a subscriber streams your music, you get paid a proportionate share of Boomplay's subscription revenue per month calculated on terms set out in 1710Media’s blanket agreement with the store (this usually excludes streams during a subscriber's free trial).  Payments will fluctuate each quarter, depending on the amount of subscription revenue generated and how often your music was streamed.


Paid Downloads:

Downloads are available through Boomplay.  Payouts are based on territory-specific rates, so for songs downloaded individually, you will be paid the wholesale price of Boomplay's retail price calculated on terms set out in 1710Media’s blanket agreement with the store.


What is the difference between Streaming, downloading, and Saving for Offline Play?

  • Streaming is when you listen to music/videos on Boomplay using your internet connection.
  • Download is when you pay to own the music/videos, which are then saved on your phone or memory card. These can be transferred to other devices without extra charge.
  • Save for Offline Play is similar to Download but only possible with an active subscription. Music/Videos saved for offline play can only be played while your subscription is active/valid.




What is pre-order and how it works with Boomplay Music?
