Twitter #music track-discovery added to Spotify, Rdio streaming apps
Twitter has expanded the reach of its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293941==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/04/18/uses.followed.artists.tweets.to.suggest.music.show s.popular.tracks/" rel='nofollow'>#music service</a>, with two music streaming companies adding it directly into their apps. <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293942==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/09/03/direct.streaming.from.spotify.to.compatible.speake rs/" rel='nofollow'>Spotify</a> and <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293943==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/08/08/friend.fm.pulls.music.based.on.friends.habits/" rel='nofollow'>Rdio</a> both offer the option to view playlists generated by Twitter #music, with the additions being the first time Twitter #music has appeared in apps other than its own iOS <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293944==http://www.macnn.com/articles/13/08/09/app.localized.for.12.more.countries/" rel='nofollow'>version</a>, and the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293945==https://music.twitter.com/" rel='nofollow'>website</a>. <br />
<br />
The two additions work relatively similarly, with overall popular songs and the #NowPlayling listing as well as genre playlists viewable on both editions. Users can view all 15 of the playlists viewable on the #music page but from within the apps, though The Next Web <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293940==http://thenextweb.com/twitter/2013/09/14/twitter-music-charts-are-now-available-inside-rdio/" rel='nofollow'>writes</a> that the Spotify version appears to be better integrated with the app, despite offering similar functionality. <br />
<br />
Both Spotify and Rdio have experience with Twitter #music, as they have been offered to users as ways to listen to music in playlists generated on the Twitter #music main site itself.
