Apr 10, 2014, 8:53 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Real Networks today announced a new service it hopes will help revive the market for ringback tones. Listen is an Android application that lets users replace the ring tone their callers hear with either music or status updates. Listen allows users to choose different tracks/messages for everyone in their contact list. Listen offers auto-set functionality for holidays or special occasions, and includes the latest music selections. Real Networks goes so far as to call Listen a productivity took, suggesting it be used by the subscriber to explain to callers why they can't answer the phone and even offer times when it would be good to call back. At launch, Listen is only available to T-Mobile subscribers.
