Facebook Rolls Out New Music Listening Experience

Facebook gets one more important feature. I think it is the major update on Facebook after the implementation of Timeline. The new Facebook feature which Facebook just announced enables Facebook friends to enjoy music together,  no matter where they are. If you are alone and enjoy your favourite songs online, don’t worry your friends can also join you to listen the music you are playing. They only need a single click on the music note on the Facebook chat sidebar. The music will plays on their PC through the same service you are using and vice versa. Facebook is rolling out this new music listening experience from today. So you will began to see the new Music Note in the chat sidebar very soon.

Just hover over the name of your online friends who are listening to music. Click the Listen with button. That is all. I can’t check this feature as it is not activated in my account.

Now how to control your new music listening experience on Facebook.

Only the people you’ve shared your listening activity with can see when you’re listening with a friend. You can control privacy settings in music apps when you install the app or on your App Settings page after you’ve installed the app. You can also remove songs you listened to from your timeline on your private activity log.

I think it is Facebook’s answer to Google+ hangout feature that enables Google+ users to watch videos together. So the competition is getting hot and hot between these two social giants. But the difference is the former enjoys a huge user base that even predicts to cross 1 Billion in coming months, reports Mashable.
