B2B music streaming technology specialist Tuned Global is powering a custom-made children’s streaming service called Gabb Music in the US from mobile technology firm Gabb Wireless.
Exclusively available for users of Gabb phones, the app is powered by Tuned Global’s white-label streaming technology.
Tuned Global says that only child-friendly tracks are being made available on Gabb’s streaming service.
This has been made possible through Tuned Global’s new integration with lyrics data company LyricFind and Gabb’s proprietary AI filtration system.
As part of this integration, Tuned Global powers the delivery of a rights-cleared music catalog from rightsholders to Gabb’s system including LyricFind’s song IDs.
Gabb then uses LyricFind’s data analysis and content filtering tool, LyricIQ, which the platform says is able to sort and rank lyrics based on 31 categories pertaining to profanity, sex, violence, drugs, politics and more.
Using these two tools and its own filtering system, Gabb says it is able to remove inappropriate lyrical content from the Gabb Music streaming service.
The service will be pre-loaded onto all new Gabb devices, while existing Gabb users will have the option to activate it remotely and add it to their mobile phone monthly billing.
Tuned Global says that, using its white-label streaming app, the first iteration of Gabb Music is a radio-style streaming service – DMCA compliant, programmed themed stations, auto-generated programmatic radio stations based on a specific artist, song or genre.
Gabb is also using Tuned Global’s CMS and Playlisting tool to manage its service and curate its content.
