NEW YORK CITY -- TouchTunes announced that its PhotoBooth feature is now a free service on its jukeboxes. PhotoBooth is an extension of TouchTunes' "social jukebox experience," and by offering it at no cost, TouchTunes and its operators hope to give music patrons even more incentive to use jukeboxes at bars and restaurants.
Effective Jan. 10, the picture entertainment option is free. The option is available on TouchTunes' latest jukebox models, the Virtuo and Playdium, which are equipped with high-resolution, wide-angle camera lenses to make it easy for consumers to capture poses.
TouchTunes introduced PhotoBooth for its new Virtuo smart boxes in 2012, initially as a non-music upsell choice. The company designed the feature for bars and restaurants, where low-light settings are not uncommon. Users can experience the option by capturing their photos in front of the jukebox and sharing them on social networks.
TouchTunes PhotoBooth has an updated look and a variety of new, entertaining photo frames. To promote the service's complimentary format, PhotoBooth-enabled jukeboxes will invite patrons to take their free photos, guiding them through the experience.
