naveen@naveen · partner, expa. co-founder, foursquare.
just got it and am already loving this app. it's a bit of a nice lightweight frontend to rdio. it's a bit of social recommendations and sharing. it's a bit of what sonos allows you to do in your team being able to queue up songs to play for everyone in the office. it's a bit of pandora: i like that it took the last song i was playing and then went all pandora on that track and found similar things and ran with it (i start off the mood, it takes over, it was refreshing and surprisingly good). reminds me a bit of perhaps the original goals of twitter music.app

Thanks @dtrinh, credit goes to the team. They built it to solve the social music discovery problem. It's your personal DJ for every moment. @viagrawal and I are happy to answer any questions!

@mh @viagrawal Congrats. Not available in Canada, but I'd be downloading it, if it was. How did you define the social music discovery problem, and how do you think this solves it?

@mh was there an inspiration for this app and its functionality? Adding to the way people already use Twitter or trying to change behavior in some way? Also the first impression is that this functionality would be better directly inside Twitter. Any thoughts about having a separate app just for sharing music?

@gt @mh @viagrawal thanks! International is definitely in the plans, and we're working closely with Spotify and Rdio to make this happen soon. We looked at social music based on our own experience with the JAMBOX; I'm throwing a party with my friends and playing my jams, but all of my friends want to start playing their tunes; what's the easiest way to get someone to play their song on my JAMBOX? Twitter is a great frictionless way to solve it because everyone has Twitter and it's a truly public network, allowing you to connect with your friends and other people around the world. Perfect for picking up song requests from everyone around you!

@TylerH @mh a lot of this came from our experience with social music and the JAMBOX. it's the ultimate social speaker, and when someone is playing music on the JAMBOX, everyone has that song that they want to play. We found that Twitter was perfect for making it easy to pick up song requests from your friends because of the public nature of the network. I think the powerful part about a music app built on top of Twitter as opposed to music within tweets is that the music experience comes first. With Drop, we want to make it easy for people to get to an endless mix of music in seconds, and then layer on song requests from your friends to make that already frictionless listening experience even better. Being inside Twitter could allow you to listen to song requests, but it's limited in that people don't think of music first when they open Twitter. With Drop, it's music first, beefed up with songs from your friends.

@mh @dtrinh @viagrawal thanks! we were inspired by the problem we had around playing music in social environments; it takes a long time to get music to play, and it's ridiculously hard to curate music from the crowd. with Drop, we've designed the app to instantly play music when you launch, and easily allow friends to add songs by just tweeting - making it super simple to enjoy music with other people.

Jawbones been moving further into tech hardware so I didn't see them building a standalone music app. You're a music buff, @TylerH. What do you think of it?

@rrhoover Literally just signed in, BUT it did recommend something I searched for this morning so it's already better than a ton of services out there. I don't know where this goes for the company, but it looks like a great little app--possibly the layer for sharing and recommending music on Twitter that Twitter Music originally wanted to be.

@TylerH @rrhoover thanks! means a lot to hear you're enjoying it. we want to do everything to get you to great music in seconds, and then make it as easy to pull in song requests from your friends - twitter is a wonderful network for this. would love to learn more about how you're using the app!

Second recommendation was a song I have never heard, and I am digging it - great first time experience! Since I signed in via Spotify, would love to be able to save songs to my playlists. Otherwise, going to spend some time with this app!

@roryreiff Thanks! We're definitely going to look to ways to be able to save songs so you can listen and organize more in Spotify, and the key is to make that interaction as lightweight as possible. Curious if you are a bigger fan of saving songs to your music or into individual playlists, as that feedback would really help us!

@viagrawal @roryreiff I mainly save songs to my list called "Favorites" - was really bummed Spotify removed easily favoriting songs. But I still have a single playlist I save stuff too specifically.

This looks cool! @mh, can you share why did you and the team built this?
