The Voice 2014 will allow viewers to vote for free online, it's been confirmed.

It's the latest BBC One series to allow voting via the channel's website, following Strictly Come Dancing last year.

But in order to vote you must first register for a free BBC ID.

And as well as the new online voting system, a new app has been developed for iOS and Android mobile devices.

The new Voice UK App features the HomeCoach Game which puts audiences in the coaches’ chairs and lets them listen to exclusive Blind Audition previews and decide whether they’d turn based on the quality of the voice alone. If the coaches turn for the same artists during the show play along, the user earns stars. Players can also rate the performances, check out the other HomeCoaches’ decisions and compare their scores with friends via Facebook. The game functionality will develop further as the show goes on.

In addition to the HomeCoach Game, the app features the online exclusive spin-off series, The Voice Louder. Hosted by Emma Willis and Marvin Humes, The Voice Louder will contain a short show summary, humorous behind-the-scenes material and will encourage users to send in pictures, tweets and videos. The Voice Louder will also be available on BBC iPlayer.

And, building on what fans loved from series two, the latest section of the app will give viewers access to performance clips, news, galleries and backstage videos and an integrated Twitter feed to keep users across the online buzz.

Sarah Clay, BBC Online Commissioning Editor, said: “Last year’s Voice Predictor app was popular with fans, but this year we wanted to put the audience in the coaches’ chairs - make them HomeCoaches, give them a chance to rate performances and say whether they’d turn.

"The focus of the game has shifted from prediction to opinion – what would you do? How good a coach would you be? We wanted to make the experience feel more social (with Facebook and Twitter integration), richer and more immediate, with the addition of clips delivered straight to people's devices. With over 55 million views to The Voice UK clips last series, adding clips to the app seemed like a must.”
