Capital app updates with facility to skip tracks

Capital has introduced a new feature in its Android and iOS apps allowing listeners to skip songs.

Sister station Capital XTRA introduced the service earlier this year, and now the facility to enter ‘My Capital’ comes to the main station.

Users of the updated app can swipe left to skip the current song playing, get a list of upcoming tracks, and vote songs good or bad. Adverts can’t be skipped over though.

James Hickman, director of digital at Global, said: “This app is the first of its kind to combine the best of radio with the best of streaming. My Capital XTRA has been a huge hit so we are now launching it on Capital. It marks a new way of listening and is ideal for people who want a degree of control without losing the curation and content from Capital. My Capital will bring radio to a younger audience by giving them the best of radio and the best of streaming in one app.”

Ashley Tabor, founder & executive president of Global said: “We wanted to do something that’s never been done before, to create a product that was true to the values and strengths of radio, but also giving users the control they expect in a streaming world. James and his team have done an outstanding job on My Capital.”
