Tim Gauthier

Facebook on Thursday began rolling out a new feature aimed at ramping up the social experience of listening to music online.

The feature, called “Listen With Friends”—lets users listen along with any friend that playing music.
“You can listen to the same song, at the exact same time—so when your favorite vocal part comes in you can experience it together, just like when you’re jamming out at a performance or dance club,” Alexandre Roche, product designer at Facebook, wrote in a blog post Thursday.

When a Facebook user is listening to a song, a music note will appear next to their name in the chat sidebar and the real-time news ticker. To listen in, users can simply hover over that friend’s name, then click the “Listen With” button.

Both Spotify and Rdio are (currently) the only two digital music service providers to support this new branch of Facebook-encorporated social media. However a recent report from ZDnet has confirmed that more will soon follow, making music-discovery a more ‘friendly’ experience.
