Facebook Launches New Music Service

Today, Facebook announced on their blog that they have started rolling out a new service that lets you listen to music with a friend who is currently listening to a song through either Spotify or Rdio. If you want to see if a friend is listening to music, just take a look at the chat bar on the right side of your screen. If one of your friends happens to be listening to music on one of the two services, a music note will appear beside their name. To start listening along, simply click on their name, and click on “Listen With (friends name here)”.

You can also chat about the song you are listening to. Multiple people can join, basically forming a party of sorts.

It is almost reminiscent of the music service turntable.fm, where one person acts as the DJ, and decides what music to play. Facebook has said the feature will start rolling out today, but it should be available to everyone on Facebook in a week or two. Let me know what you think of it in the comment section below!
