Research In Motion today announced the full launch of its BBM Music Service, a social music sharing service for BlackBerries. With BBM Music, BlackBerry users can build their own profile and playlists with up to 50 songs. Users then invite their BBM contacts to join their community and that person's songs become available to everyone in the community and vice versa. As users add to their BBM Music community, the number of available tracks for them to listen to grows and grows. RIM believes the service will let people discover and enjoy music through their BBM contacts. BBM Music lets users comment on songs and playlists, as well as see chronological views of the community's updates and additions, and charts on which songs are the most popular. BBM Music also supports device-side caching for listening when offline. RIM is offering the service as a free trial with all the features for two months. After the two-month trial period is over, users will need to subscribe to the service, which costs $4.99 per month. A limited version of the service will still be available, but will only provide 30-second song previews rather than access to full tracks. The application will becaome available for download at some point today.
