Fitbit, spotted by 9to5Google, announced that it’s discontinuing its Fitbit Connect app on October 13.
Users will have only two ways to download music to their device: a paid subscription to either Pandora or Deezer. On its support page, Fitbit says “you may be eligible for a 90-day trial” of either service, which will run you $9.99 / month for Deezer Premium or $4.99 / month for Pandora Plus once the trial’s over.
“Fitbit users can still enjoy the music already on their device, but will be unable to add new songs,” Fitbit spokesperson Andrea Holing said in a statement to The Verge. “To sync data from their Fitbit device, users can continue to use the Fitbit app on their mobile phone.”
In the same vein, Google has recently announced plans to add 50 live TV channels to its new service.
It is the usual lineup of internet-streamed free channels like ABC News Live, NBC News Now, and USA Today. There are also a bunch of background noise channels like Divorce Court, American Classics, and Deal or no Deal.
Users will find the Hallmark Movies channel and will get the Reelz channel where you can apparently watch my actor friend play a soft-spoken cop.
