It seems that Facebook is hard determined to redefine the social networking experience with introducing many important features and facilities to its users. Keeping this tradition alive, Facebook today launched of a new ‘listen with’ feature which lets you listen along with any of your friends who are currently listening to music. You can also listen together in a group while one of your friends plays DJ.
How does it work?In your Facebook page, look for the music note in the chat sidebar to see which of your friends are listening to music. To listen with a friend, hover over their name, and click the Listen With button. The music will play through the service your friend is using. When a new song plays, you’ll come along for the ride, discovering new music while your friend DJs for you.
This new feature certainly adds a whole new dimension to using Facebook, by effectively letting your friends control your musical journey whilst chatting. This new feature could also go some way to improving users’ adoption of the Facebook chat service which has recently seen a standalone windows chat-client released.
