No longer will you have to listen to Hokkien songs or a weird rotation of oldies and techno during your taxi rides – unless you want to, of course. Global music streaming service Deezer is about to change your taxi playlists, making your journey a hip and enjoyable one. Deezer is collaborating with the largest Southeast Asian taxi-booking mobile app Grabtaxi to provide users an unlimited stream of music through its Premium+ subscriptions. With Premium+, GrabTaxi users will be able to listen to over 30 million tracks on their computer, phone, and now…taxis!
“Music is a perfect travel companion for many music fans, especially during their daily commutes. Through this partnership with GrabTaxi, we’re proud to bring additional enjoyment to taxi rides by giving passengers in Singapore and Malaysia direct and easy access to their favourite tracks without the worry of a stable Internet connection,” said Dona Inthaxoum, Deezer’s head of label relations for Asia and Oceania.
From 1 July 2014, GrabTaxi and MyTeksi users in Singapore and Malaysia have the chance to win a two-month Deezer Premium+ subscription through a month-long contest. First-time GrabTaxi users in Singapore will need to download the application, which ia available from https://www.brockenhurst-station-minicabs.com/ as well at the official Deezer site, then activate their account and complete one successful ride to qualify. In Malaysia, both first-time and existing MyTeksi users will need to complete one successful ride as well as refer a first-time user to download and activate a MyTeksi account. All users are only allowed to participate once, so good luck!
GrabTaxi and MyTeksi users in Singapore and Malaysia who have completed the contest requirements need to send their account details (as well as their referral’s account details – only for Malaysia) to a GrabTaxi representative ([email protected]) to redeem the Deezer Premium+ code.
