The way this walking tour works is that when you are close to an iconic music location in Sheffield, the app will automatically start playing the audio guide for that spot. We advise you to walk, get your boots on, your headphones in, and head to one of the spots on the map. When you are close by, you will start to hear a voice in your ears.
- You will need a smartphone (iPhone, Android, Samsung etc)
- You will need to download an app to do the walking tour, it’s called ECHOES and instructions for how to download the app are below.
- You will need headphones connected to your smartphone.
You must allow location tracking; select ‘Yes’ or ‘Always on’. You can deactivate this setting later in your settings or by deleting the app.
You must allow notifications; again, you may choose deactivate these after you’ve completed the audiotour.
Now there are two options: you can either Download the walk or Stream the walk. We recommend that whilst you’re at home on WiFi that you Download the walk, and then you don’t use any data whilst you’re out and about. Streaming the walk means it is using your mobile data and might incur charges.
