The Facebook and Spotify platforms are teaming up for a new feature that will allow people to listen to music while browsing social media. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg shared the good news with fans in a Discord chat yesterday.
Zuckerberg said in a statement that Facebook is beginning to deepen its relationship with Spotify. He announced that users will be allowed to listen to the music they listen to on Spotify while browsing Facebook with a new feature called Project Boombox.
The era of listening to Spotify on Facebook begins
The Facebook app will integrate a built-in Spotify player that allows users to instantly listen to Spotify music shared on Facebook without having to leave the app. The study will also allow creators and artists to share their work more easily on social media.
Spotify wants to grow its podcast service and wants to reach a wider audience thanks to its deal with Facebook. Facebook’s advantage will be its functions of offering its users a range of audio broadcast discoveries and instant interactions. In this way, the company is thought to deeply undermine Apple’s leadership in the podcast field.
In addition to Project Boombox, Facebook is also working on new vehicles at full speed. One of them is a new service called Soundbites. Here, users will be allowed to record short audio clips and share them via Newsfeed. According to Zuckerberg, this product will look like an audio version of Instagram Reels. So it is also possible to look at this like the audio-oriented version of TikTok.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has yet to give a release date for Project Boombax, Soundbites, and other services in preparation. However, the expected features are expected to be officially released in the coming weeks.
