The Al Jazeera Media Network has unveiled a brand new audio app that is designed to enable people living in low-bandwidth parts of the world to listen to a live, real-time audio stream of Al Jazeera TV. The audio will include material from both the Al Jazeera English and Al Jazeera Arabic branches.
By offering this audio app, Al Jazeera is looking to further its position and its reputation as a news service that is at the constant forefront of the digital age. The low-bandwidth app is expected to attract a lot of attention and users in regions of the world such as Africa and Southeast Asia.
This audio app is a smart move by Al Jazeera, as it enables it to expand its reach by making services available to audiences living in places with low Internet speeds.
