Facebook has launched Listen With Friends, a next step into incorporating music into their social media network experience. The service will allow users to listen to music at the same time as their friends and discuss the tunes using Facebook Chat. According to reports, up to 50 people will be able to listen to a song at the same time and discuss it. 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. In order to listen in, users can simply hover over that friend’s name, then click the “Listen With” button (see image below). At the moment, the service will only work if both parties have access to the same online music programs, which is currently Spotify and Rdio. However, ZDNet claims that more services are set to be announced in the future. Facebook product designer Alexandre Roche said of the social network latest feature:

“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.”
