Eurovision Song Contest launches its own app
The Eurovision Song Contest has never been closer, with the launch of the contest’s official app. For the first time viewers will be able to vote for their favourites through the app, which is available for both iOS and Android users.
The app provides news updates, photos and videos 365 days a year, and allows users to download their favourite songs of this year’s contest. A highlight is the app’s second-screen functionality, providing viewers with live updates during the shows about the contestants, their songs, opening- and interval acts, as well as the results.
After all songs have been performed, viewers can vote for their favourites via telephone and SMS, as well as via the app.
“With this app, we bring the Eurovision Song Contest closer to the viewer than ever before, adding a new dimension to viewing and voting,” says Jon Ola Sand, the Executive Supervisor for the Eurovision Song Contest on behalf of the EBU.
The app is available in English, Swedish, German and Dutch, with more language versions to come on board soon.
