RealNetworks, Inc. Rolls Out New Version of LISTEN

RealNetworks Inc. rolled out new version of LISTEN, an app available to T-Mobile and MetroPCS customers enabling users to activate music sharing and status messages for their callers to hear as they wait to connect. The 2.0 update introduces a new DRIVE module, as well as additional customization options. Since its April 2014 launch LISTEN has witnessed strong growth, with its active subscriber base growing by 244% in the last six months alone. According to research from the National Safety Council, distracted driving is at fault for 26% of the nation's car accidents, with 21% of accidents stemming from a simple phone call. With DRIVE, LISTEN aims to keep the attention of smartphone-addicted drivers away from the phone and on the road, driving these percentages closer to zero. Other new features from the 2.0 update include: Custom status messages: Make it personal and create a 30-second custom status message to play back to specific callers when busy, for anyone from mom and dad to work colleagues and best friends. Recurring status messages: Android users can save time and peace of mind by scheduling a recurring status message or automatic text message. Calendar integration: Android users can sync LISTEN with their calendars, keeping their schedules transparent with incoming callers. For example, if a user's calendar notes that they are in a meeting, LISTEN will automatically: a) play back a pre-set status message to callers, b) send an automatic text message to callers and texters, or c) do both. Geofencing: When enabled, the geofencing feature allows LISTEN to automatically set a status message for callers based on location. For example, while at the gym, LISTEN can now automatically let callers and texters know that someone's busy in yoga class for the next thirty minutes. All features from the 2.0 update will be available for both LISTEN standard and premium subscribers. LISTEN is currently available to both T-Mobile and MetroPCS customers on iOS, Android, and Windows phones.
