Now You Can 'Listen With Friends' On Facebook

13 January 2012COMMENTS

Yesterday (12th January), Facebook announced it's new 'Listen With Friends' feature on their blog, which will be rolled out in full over the next few weeks.

Having joined forces last year with Spotify,  along with other music streaming parteners such as SoundCloud and Vevo, it appears people have really taken to it and are happy to share the music they are listening to. While there may be an element of showing off (how up-to-date you are/your extensive music knowledge) in this 'sharing', it does aid people in discovering new music. Speaking at the f8 conference in San Francisco last September, founder of Spotify Daniel Ek said:

Finding new music is always difficult and that is why we created Spotify. We have spent the last few years building a service where you can find music. Add this to Facebook's 800 million users and this will light up the world.”

Now, Facebook have taken their music offering one step further with their new feature 'Listen With Friends'. It will allow you to listen to the same songs as your friends simultaneously so you can share the experience with them and even join a group where one person acts as the DJ. To listen with one of your friends you will simply need to click on the music icon in the chat menu and hit the 'Listen with..." button. Then start a conversation in chat and discuss the music with your friends.

Is this something you think you'll use?
