Just as we heard last night, Facebook has just announced its Music service where it is teaming up with MOG, Spotify, Rdio, Rhapsody, and many other partners.
Obviously, this is a big social push for Facebook and its partners. Once you authorize the appropriate music service, you’ll be able to click a friend’s song activity in the Facebook ticker, which then takes you to the song in that app or website. So, for example, if you click on a friend’s Spotify activity, that song will load immediately in the Spotify desktop app, and the new "Listen with a friend" feature lets you along at the same point in the song as your friend. Additionally, you can check out a user’s individual music timeline in order to look at their top plays, playlists, and recent listens.
Check out the full list of partners above. Facebook Music is launching today.
