Facebook Employee Discloses Key Facebook Music Feature

It is been quite a busy week for Facebook as well as for bloggers who are busy covering every single news coming up from the Facebook camp regarding its new features, additions and improvements. A lot of work has been done by Facebook in last month or so. We have so many rumors, leaks and announcements to cover. The cycle still continues as Facebook is busy tweaking things.

We already know that Facebook Music is going to be launched at f8. But what we are not sure about is how this service will work. However, we are able to get something on it for you as one of the Facebook employees mistakenly disclosed one shocking feature of Facebook Music.

The creative director ‘Ji Lee’ was a part of Google before he became a part of Facebook. He quit Google and joined Facebook in April. He is the person who accidently sent out the following tweet on his Twitter account:

The “Listen with your friend” feature in ticker is blowing my mind. Listen to what your friends are listening. LIVE.

The tweet was deleted by Lee within minutes, but not as quick as the wits of Mitchell Holder who took a snapshot of it. In tweet, Ji Lee clearly disclosed the major characteristic of Facebook Music, rather unintentionally. All the music that you listen will appear in the freshly-launched ‘Ticker’. Besides this, a link ‘Listen with your friend’ will be displayed, allowing your friends to click on it and listen to what you are listening one at the same time. Hats off to Facebook Music’s two key features: Scrobbling and Track Unification.

This feature is already active on Ji Lee’s Facebook account, but he might not realize the importance of the fact that he was required to keep this undercover. He must not be aware of this fact for sure that is why his Facebook account displayed the status:

Ji Lee is listening to Black & Blue by Mike Snow and feeling happy it’s another beautiful sunny day in California.

Yes! It’s all about Facebook Music.

From the available evidences, we can easily say that Facebook has removed the unified music ‘remote control’ which means that you need to switch windows to the music service to control the music, i.e. play, stop, pause, next, back etc.
