With FaceBook Music launching tomorrow, Ji Lee, the Creative Director who was stolen away from Google by FB, has revealed an awesome feature that might become available with the service.
Lee sent out a tweet earlier saying – “Listen with your friend” feature in ticker is blowing my mind. Listen to what your friends are listening. LIVE.”
Immediately he deleted the tweet, but not before someone grabbed a screenshot of the tweet 🙂 shown below:
Yes, Lee is describing a key feature of Facebook Music launching tomorrow. Not only will all music you’re listening to appear in the just-launched right-side ticker, there will be a link to “Listen with your friend”, that when clicked, will allow you to listen along to the same song at the same time (thanks to the magic of scrobbling and track matching).
One other thing confirmed: the unified music “remote control” on Facebook has been removed, as Peter Kafka first reported. This means that in order to control the music (play/pause/stop/next track/etc) you’ll have to switch windows to the music service itself.
Undoubtedly, FB Music is already live on Lee’s FaceBook account, verifiable by his earlier today’s status saying “Ji Lee is listening to Black & Blue by Mike Snow and feeling happy it’s another beautiful sunny day in California.”
Let’s wait & see what F8 has to offer us tomorrow!!!
