Virtual-reality music app MelodyVR is expanding beyond its initial launch markets of the UK and US. As of tomorrow (26 June) it will also be available in France, Germany, Sweden, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Greece, Austria and Belgium – mirroring the European rollout of Facebook’s Oculus Go VR headset.
In an announcement to the markets this morning, MelodyVR’s parent company EVR Holdings added that the company “is now revenue generative and that early user engagement numbers and metrics have proven to be positive” – albeit without any specific figures for now.
“With the VR industry expanding rapidly, the MelodyVR platform will be released in further territories, as we look to reach even more consumers across the globe. I look forward to welcoming new users to our service in each of these new territories and to scaling our company’s user-numbers and revenues on a global basis,” said executive chairman Anthony Matchett.
On the Oculus Go’s webstore, MelodyVR’s app has so far been reviewed 181 times, with an average rating of three stars (out of five). 46% of those reviews were five-stars and 42% one-star, which might suggest MelodyVR is dividing opinions.
Digging in to those reviews, though, a number of the one-stars are criticising the app for not working in the reviewer’s country – so this week’s expansion may at least smooth some of those ruffled feathers.
