The people at Facebook definitely agree as they took social networking to a whole new level with the launch of the ‘Listen with Friends’ feature.
Come together, right now
This new feature allows you to listen to the exact song that your friends are listening to via Facebook chat in real time. So, if you use Rdio and Spotify to listen to music, amplify your music experience by tuning your friends in to the song that rules your moment. Not a Rdio or Spotify user? Don’t worry. You can sign up for these music apps and install them after clicking the “Listen with (Friend’s Name)” button.
Pump up the volume
Start or join the ‘listening with friends’ culture on Facebook by allowing the music apps you use to add your activities on your timeline. A music note will appear next to a user’s name in your list. So, look out for the music note on the chat sidebar. If you want to listen to the same song that your friend is listening to, then hover over their name or the updates in ticker and start listening with friends in real time.
Not just a party for two
With the programs in place, you can now enjoy your favorite music with your friends at the same time from virtually anywhere. You can also share how a particular song impacts you or why it rocks, as chatting whilst listening to music is made possible.
So, put on your best headphones or turn up the speakers. Get set to scream out the bridge of the song together with your friends online. It will bring you a concert like experience with your friends.
