Music Sharing Startup MyStream Readies Android Application (Video)
MyStream is a mobile music sharing app that launched on iOS over a year ago and somehow failed to reach Android up until now. It plans to go cross platform next week and founder and CEO Richard Zelson found the time to detail the transition. The company is working on features that are more than just music sharing .
MyStream has this idea as its base: it would be nice to see what music your friend is listening to. Social music apps are already out there, in quite a number actually, but instead of relying on social and gaming features like Turntable.fm, MyStream adopts a simpler method. After you download the app and enable sharing anyone with a WiFi or Bluetooth connection can listen in on what you’re listening to. On WiFi up to 20 people can connect to one’s musical tastes, a very cool idea.
The limit is 5 on Bluetooth and this service can be seen as an alternative to simply sharing your earbuds with someone. MyStream has about 75k registered users and you should know that it only works when you’re connected to a network with someone else who’s using the application. Support for sharing via 3G and 4G would expand the appeal of the app even more. You can get an idea of what’s coming via the short promo video below:
