Bharti Airtel is working hard on improving its digital content services for a long time. Besides partnering with content providers such as Netflix and Amazon Prime, the telco is developing its digital content apps such as Wynk Music and Airtel TV. Every Airtel customer must be aware of Airtel’s self-care mobile application- My Airtel which allows users to manage their account and perform recharges, bill payments. To recall, a couple of months ago, Airtel pushed an update to My Airtel app which added a new Airtel TV tab that displays the content offered by Airtel TV. However, when you click the content, Airtel used to redirect to Airtel TV app, but that’s going to change very soon as Airtel will soon allow you to view Airtel TV content and listen to Wynk Music within My Airtel application itself.
My Airtel App Gets Airtel TV and Wynk Music Integration
The reason behind this move from Airtel is unknown at the moment, but the telco maybe looking to solve the redundant apps issue. Earlier, a user is required to download Airtel TV and Wynk Music applications to enjoy the content, but very soon, Airtel might solve this issue. As noted above, Airtel’s self-care app- My Airtel has got the Airtel TV and Wynk Music services integrated into it.
The new change, as we spotted in the latest My Airtel version could soon go live to stable users as well. If you recall, a few months ago, Airtel added a new Airtel TV tab inside the My Airtel application, which allowed users to check what content is available inside the app. But the same Airtel TV tab has been renamed to Entertainment tab in the latest update and it houses three sections- Trending, Airtel TV and Wynk Music.
As the name itself suggests, the Trending section displays all the content which is trending right now. Inside the Airtel TV section, we get to see all the content that’s available in the company’s digital content app. Airtel TV app offers content from various services such as ZEE5, HOOQ, Eros Now and so on. Lastly, we have the Wynk Music section which is one of the popular music streaming services available in the market right now.
Airtel Users Still Need to Download Apps Separately for Full-Fledged Use
Having said that, to enjoy the full features of Airtel TV and Wynk Music apps, you still have to download them separately. This integration inside My Airtel app allows you just to watch the content. For example, you won’t be able to download audio from Wynk Music and there’s no option to set the streaming quality inside the Airtel TV section.
This is completely understandable from Airtel’s part and the integration might be aimed at users who’re still using an entry-level smartphone and won’t be able to download multiple apps to enjoy the content. Aforesaid, these changes have been spotted on the latest My Airtel version, so to enjoy the new features update your app to the latest version via Google Play Store.
