American Spanish-language media company Univision has partnered with Napster on its redesigned Latin music streaming app, Uforia
The app is part of the recently expanded Uforia brand, described as ‘the biggest Latin music media platform in the country’.
The Uforia app, Powered by Napster, features hundreds of curated playlists, a catalog of more than 40 million songs, with plans to add an ‘extensive’ list of podcasts from Spring 2019.
