The social media giant Facebook plans to release a new feature on its mobile app that “listens” to your music and TV shows.  If the song or show is recognized by the app, users can update their status by publishing the information on their profile or to selected friends.
The feature, which will be available in a few weeks’ time, uses the microphones inside users’ smartphones to detect nearby music or TV shows. As the user begins writing a status update, a small animated icon will appear at the top of the app. If the app detects the appropriate audio signals and finds a match from its database, the user can then share what he or she is watching or listening to.

Facebook says the feature can be turned off at any time, the audio recording is not stored anywhere and the device cannot identify background noise or conversations. “If you share music, your friends can see a 30-second preview of the song. For TV shows, the story in News Feed will highlight the specific season and episode you’re watching,” Facebook said in a statement.

The service hopes to take advantage of the “second screen” trend, which sees fans of TV shows in particular sharing their experiences on social networks. The company hopes this new method of sharing user listening and watching habits will take advantage of the five billion status updates related to TV and music experiences that the social networking giant sees on a yearly basis.
