Emirates App Introduces New Entertainment Syncing Feature
You will never get bored during long flights again as Emirates introduced a new and innovative function on their Emirates App, which allows customers to create customized playlists ahead of their flight and sync it to their seats once on board.
Ice, Emirates’ award-winning in-flight entertainment system, provides customers with an easier and effective onboard experience by using the Emirates App to browse the expansive entertainment catalog at any time.
It has more than 4,000 channels of on-demand entertainment, including over 1,000 movies, popular television box sets, tens of thousands of music tracks, podcasts and games more than any other airline—perfect for travelers of all ages.
An addition to the new features is the varied content, such as Emirates’ own Food and Wine Channels, giving customers a behind-the-scenes look on how onboard menus are created, expert-led LinkedIn Learning courses, as well as uTalk language courses offering lessons for beginners.
