In addition to streaming music at 320kbps, users will have access to New Releases, Editor's Picks, Top Songs, Featured Playlists and Featured Radio in addition to their own tagged songs from within the MOG music service. MOG also offers 'MOG Mobius' that enables users to switch between artist-only radio or a mix of similar artists.
