Facebook Music announced with Spotify, Rdio, MOG, and more

55

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.
