Facebook and Spotify have a secret “Boombox” project in development
TechCrunch reports that Facebook and Spotify have partnered for a new initiative called “Project Boombox,” an interesting piece of information that has been confirmed by Mark Zuckerberg himself.
The project is meant to create an in-line audio player that will enable Facebook users to listen to their favorite tunes being shared on either of the two platforms without being externally linked to Spotify's app or website.
Interestingly enough, the Spotify integration will support both music and podcasts. The report also mentions that it's already been tested in Mexico and Thailand and that it's going to be officially revealed next week.
