Loop Mobile has launched ‘Karaoke messaging’ service. Confused??? What is Karaoke messaging? This service allows subscribers to sing a song along with the right music accompaniment and the exact lyrics, listen to their recording and then dedicate it to their loved ones. You can use this service by dialing 54999. Loop Mobile is the first mobile operator to start such a service. You will be charged Rs. 2/min for recording the song however the song dedication to any local mobile number is free.That means a subscriber will be charged only recording the song.
The service comes as an interactive voice response (IVR) based portal which hosts over 500 tunes of Bollywood music ranging from Retro, to Romantic songs to Ghazals. Beginning with a ‘Call on 54999’, to selecting your favorite song’s music accompaniment, and dedicating the recorded song, the transformation from an ordinary subscriber to a honed singer is a very smooth process. A re-recording feature is available as well. Since the song dedication reaches the person as a call the surprise quotient is retained.
