New Facebook Android app listens to and shares your media
The new feature on the Android Facebook app will help you to share the music, TV and films you are watching in real time.
We all use Facebook as a way to share our lives with our family and friends. Media is a big part of modern culture and Facebook’s new app feature will help us to share our media experiences more easily. The software will be able to scan the music, TV and films you are listening to using your smartphone mic. It will be able to independently identify what it is and update your status accordingly.
Whether you are listening to the new Lily Allen album, watching The Big Bang Theory or the New Captain America film, Facebook can detect it, share it and even play a 30 minuet snippet for your friends. Don’t worry though, Facebook will give you the control to either turn it off or to choose not to share specific updates.
The software isn’t new, Shazam and Sound Hound have been using the technology for years, but Facebook is using it in a new and unique way that is suitable for social media users.
The feature is due to be available in the coming weeks, so if you want to share even more with your Facebook friends then keep your eyes open for the update.
