Free and unlimited: two magical words that can boost the chances of any product to get noticed. Include it in the packaging/ads and you've got yourself a sure-fire way of getting attention. #TrueStory
The bad news: These two words are almost always not included in the same sentence. Free and unli-kanin? Yeah right. In yo' dreams, bro!
So when we heard about this service that offers both, we quickly asked, "Totoo ba ito?"

Audiophiles, rejoice! Check out Guvera, a free service that—get this—lets you have unlimited music-streaming! Yowzah!
Previously only available in Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, and the US, Guvera is now here in the Philippines offering yet another way to easily access and listen to music. "Our free service is like radio, but even better as it’s curated by our in-house music experts. Our goal is to keep our users immersed and engaged with new content, playlists and tracks on the platform,” says Michael Wallis-Brown, Chief Commercial Officer for Guvera Global. Sounds good, sir!
Aside from offering music-streaming and letting you create playlists, Guvera also allows searching for music based on your mood or activity using hashtags. For example, the hashtag #Metal will net you brain-numbing, head-banging songs while #Ballads will play pang-romansa tunes.
We're also told that Guvera has a social-networking component, allowing you to create a profile, find friends, and share playlists. It's like Facebook for music junkies minus the clickbait posts!
And to make the service even more "Pinoy," Guvera also includes OPM music, and is set to add more songs from local artists.
Available as a browser service for desktops, Guvera can now be DL'ed for free for iOS and Android devices. And oh, there's a premium subscription, too, called Guvera Platinum (P149 a month) if you don't want ads to ruin the experience. As for us, well, okay na kami sa libre!
