Facebook Feature Will Recognize, Share Users' Music, TV Shows


Facebook's mobile apps will soon recognize the music, movies or television shows their users listen or watch.

The new feature will create a status update on Facebook that identifies the song a user is listening to and provide a 30-second preview of it that's available to the user's friends.

Facebook is working with streaming music services Spotify Rdio and Deezer to offer the music previews.

The new feature, which must be activated by the user and is off by default, will also detect television shows and highlight the specific season and episode that the user is watching and share it in their news feed.

It will also activates the microphone on a smartphone and detect the music, movie or television show playing in the background, similar to the way the Shazam app works.

Once users activate the feature, the technology attempts to recognize the music or video playing in the background any time a Facebook user composes a status update.

The feature will be available on the Android and iOS versions of its app in the U.S. in the coming weeks, the company said.
