Facebook is reportedly working on a platform on which it will provide digital music of several content providers such as Spotify, MOG, Rhapsody, SoundCloud, iTunes, Napster, Kazaa, Vevo and others.
Warner Brothers already offers video streaming services through its web-service and Facebook is expected to soon announce closer integration with a premium TV content service.
Facebook won’t get into music hosting, but will instead provide streaming services for several other digital music providers. That means you will have an audio music player through which you could subscribe to several music services and stream content to your Facebook profile.
It is quite possible that Facebook Music will initially be limited only to the web. If the plan matures, then in the long-run it is quite possible to have your Facebook Music player on your mobile phone and stream your favourite music from a preferred music service.
Facebook will offer deeper integration with this Music service. For instance, if you are listening to a song on a particular music service on Facebook and post it as a status update, your friend can listen to the same song by simply clicking on the link.
Facebook is expected to make an important announcement at the F8 Facebook Developers Conference which will take place from September 22 in San Francisco. So far there has been enough evidence unearthed for Facebook’s Music service for it to be considered real.
