Standalone Music App From Twitter Launch On Friday

Twitter, the famous micro blogging site is planning to roll out their standalone music application on this Friday, says reports from AllThingsD. The music discovery service We Are Hunted confirmed earlier today that the company has been acquired by Twitter approving the rumors making rounds in the market for quite some time now. It was clear that Twitter is planning to come up with a standalone music app, but nothing was officially confirmed by the team. Only the tweet of the American Idol, Ryan Seacrest and retweet of the same by Kevin Thau, Twitter’s VP of Business and Corporate was clearly pointing the latest release from the house.

Procurement of We Are Hunted, and then the launch of the standalone music app, adding the Vine and the photo filters, clearly shows that Twitter is making its way towards appearing as a complete media platform. According to the reports, this music app will suggest the users different music tracks depending on data picked from the account of the users, and will also take input from the accounts the users follow. With this software users can even listen to music through third party services such as Soundcloud or iTunes. It will also enable the user to watch music videos from Vevo.

Now, about the launch of this application, speculations are on that Twitter might try to launch it in the Coachella Music Festival of Los Angeles, CA, as the festive also is going to start on this week end itself. But according to Costine, launching music software in the Coachella festive can be quite risky.

Not only the festive is chaotic, but as it is held in the outskirts of LA, the place also has problems regarding poor mobile signals, and people usually try to preserve batteries of their mobile while in the festive. Launching a mobile application in a crowd of 75,000 attendees can actually be a prodigious idea but at the same time, it has to be considered that, amongst the noise and wildness of the festive, there is ample of chances that users might miss downloading the app. The overpowering environment in the festive certainly does not support listening to the music or watching a new videos.
