Facebook recently announced a new feature “Listen With” in Facebook chat where you can listen to songs with your friends.

There are number of ways you can listen to music on Facebook. To make things easy, Facebook Music dashboard lists currently trending music tracks in your region. This listing is powered by external online music providers like MySpace, Saavan and so on.


Besides checking this listing, you can also listen to music with friends on Spotify.com and rdio.com websites (these are supported by Facebook as of now) by adding these Facebook apps to your Facebook account. Also, you can control these apps posting activity on your timeline profile using audience selector and activity log options.




Start listening to music, your name is Facebook chat box will have ‘Music Note’ symbol next to it. Other friends can click your name in chat box (with music note symbol) and then click “Listen with” button to start listening same music as enjoyed by other friend on Facebook.



However, Spotify and Rdio are available only in few countries, so all Facebook users across the Globe can’t use this “Listen With” feature. Although, there are rumors that soon Facebook is going to add more Partners.

Though, Facebook has come with this new Music feature after their Timeline released in December, 11. I feel this idea of Music “Listen With” is copied from Google+. Google+ already has Google Music and also you can watch YouTube video’s together with your friends in a hangout. And not forgetting the YouTube Playlist on Google+.

So to conclude, I say there’s a social war for Media (Music, Video etc.) with the social networks.
