We all have been hearing from a long time that Facebook would soon launch a music service called Facebook Music. Earlier, we along with a lot of others have speculated that Facebook Music would be launched on July 6, but in vain. After a long time, the rumors about Facebook Music have once again surfaced pegging the launch date on September 22 .Facebook has its f8 conference (a conference during which Facebook launches new features) on September 22.
To use the Facebook Music service you have to first register on one of the streaming music services, Spotify or MOG or Rdio. Few other streaming music services might be added by the time of the launch. Once you have registered with one of these streaming music services you are all set to stream music on your Facebook account.
With the rumored launch date very nearby, two key features of Facebook Music have been revealed namely, Scrobbling And Track Unification. Scrobbling is a feature wherein, the song your are listening to is automatically sent to your profile and posted on your friends feeds.
The second feature, Track Unification is a very very key feature and a potential game changer. With the Track Unification feature you need not worry if you and your friends use the same streaming music service to listen to the songs posted on your profile. Suppose you use Spotify and your friends use MOG or Rdio, your friends could still tune in to your music, using their own streaming music service. Ofcourse, this has a few constraints like your music not being available on other streaming music services. But, overall it could be a very useful feature.
Well, these are some of the key features that Facebook Music would have and we will keep you posted with the updates. Do tell us if you like these features and what other features you are expecting from Facebook Music.
