Speculations About Facebook Launching Music Service ‘Vibes’

Facebook VibesA proof concerning the unannounced Facebook music service named as Vibes had been exposed by a software developer and research.

Jeff Rose wrote on his blog that after the launch of Facebook Video Chat, he inspected the code that the latest feature needs to work.  He discovered that it completed reference to features named ‘Peep’ for video naming itself and as well to ‘Vibes.’

He wrote, “I searched around to see what this is all about, and it seems that this is an unannounced feature that has yet to be released. The vibes app connects with a music download dialog in the page though, so I’m guessing that with this release we are seeing the seeds for Facebook’s upcoming music offering.”

Since Facebook Video Chat is not named ‘Peep’ it appears probably that some latest music service can have an open name other than “Vibes.”

Several rumors recommended that Facebook would briefly pronounce a tie-up with Spotify, the music service that has presently pronounced that it will open in America.

Forbes ‘Disruptors’ blog revealed that “Clicking on [a new] Spotify icon will install the service on their desktop in the background, and also allow users to play from Spotify’s library of millions of songs through Facebook. The service will include a function that lets Facebook users listen to music simultaneously with their friends over the social network, one of the sources said.”
