Anghami, the leading music service in MENA, has been voted by Google as one of the best apps in 2015 and has been featured on its Play Store.
During 2015, Anghami amassed more than 10 million new users that are now listening to more than 300 million streams per month.
Eddy Maroun, co-founder of Anghami, said “We’ve seen massive growth this year compared to last year. The team is relentlessly focused on providing a superior user experience, and these efforts are what got us featured as one of the best apps on the Play Store.”
Anghami has improved the user experience this year by becoming more personalized and attentive to people’s tastes. Users can follow their favorite artists, which will signal to the app what kind of music they like.
The app then starts recommending similar songs and playlists from this genre. The app also became more contextual, thereby making sure that it is serving the right music at the right time, such as offering morning playlists in the morning and driving music for the car.
Elie Habib, co-founder, gave a sneak peak into the future of the product and announces that the app will soon start streaming music videos, hoping that this will make users even happier as Anghami becomes their number one source for entertainment.
