Twitter’s music app is finally live to the public on this Thursday. Twitter #Music, as the service is known, uses Twitter option to find new singers, musical artists, music-related tweets of highlight musicians and show which musical artists your favorite musicians follow on Twitter. #Music allows users to easily listen to songs and tweet songs to their followers.
#Music targets to people who wish to discover new music through Twitter. Previously, the service was only available to celebrities who were given exclusive access to this app. Twitter #Music is now available as a free app for iOS on iTunes and the web version will roll out over time on Thursday. An Android version is coming soon.
ABC News Good Morning America got the opportunity of giving first exclusive look of Twitter #Music on Thursday. The reason for showcasing on a morning show is to pull in all the remaining new audience who has not yet joined Twitter still. Twitter users are, generally young. Around 27% of people aged 18 to 29 use Twitter, while only 10% of people 50 to 64 are Twitter users.
In order to bring users new music, Twitter #Music is connected with iTunes, Spotify and Rdio, and #Music will be the default to iTunes. There are a different ways that #Music users will be able to enjoy new songs. Users can find trending music on the “Popular” tab, while the “Emerging” section shows “hidden talent shown in tweets.” Finding music similar to what the user has already enjoyed is shown under “Suggested” page. Last, not the least, the #NowPlaying feature (shown in screenshot) lets tweeters view and listen to songs that have been tweeted by people they follow.
