There is a reason we call our new, FREE Internet Radio service Myxer Social Radio. It is our belief that the experience of enjoying music is better if you are not alone, and much better if you are with one or more of your friends. With our “Listen Together” feature we make it incredibly easy for you to enter a virtual room with your Facebook friends and listen to the same music at the same time. Join a room that they created, or invite them to listen along in your room. Either way, you can be miles apart and still feel connected and engaged with the music and each other as the timeline shares icons and updates from everyone in the room in real-time. You can even CHAT in real-time with everyone in the room.
To help ensure that everyone who uses Myxer Social Radio benefits from the experience of using the app or website with their actual friends we are leveraging Facebook. In order to launch the Myxer Social Radio app you are required to login by linking with your Facebook account. This way, as soon as you open Myxer Social Radio you can see your friends and what they are listening to right now. As you will quickly see when you start using Myxer Social Radio yourself, this is fun! There is something inherently pleasing about knowing you are not alone and that while you are listening to Bob Marley wail in your “Jamaican Me Crazy” room, some of your friends are “there” listening too.
After spotting a familiar Facebook friend on the FRIENDS screen, tap or click their profile picture to go to their profile page.
From your friend’s profile page you can select “INVITE TO LISTEN” if you want them to join you in the room you are listening in. Select “LISTEN TOGETHER” if you want to join your friend in the room they are in.
If your friends are not yet using Myxer Social Radio you can select “INVITE FRIENDS” on the web or “INVITE FACEBOOK FRIENDS” on the FRIENDS tab in the Android or iPhone app to send an invite to any of your friend’s Facebook wall. It’s as easy as that!
Now that you know how easy it is to INVITE FRIENDS to join you and to LISTEN TOGETHER WITH YOUR FRIENDS in Myxer Social Radio, we hope to listen with you soon!
And while we are talking about you and your friends, here is a FREE “I Love My Friends” screensaver for your phone. Enjoy!
