Facebook might be getting into the music streaming business as well

51 sec read

With how ridiculously popular music streaming has become over the past couple of years, it’s no surprise that everyone wants a piece of the action. However, while Apple’s entrance to the market was not only expected, but long awaited, rumors that Facebook is also interested in releasing its own music streaming service are pretty surprising. This move is still only rumored though, and even those rumors claim ti could be a while before such a service is ever released. 

While Facebook recently took on YouTube with its own video streaming platform, it looks like the social media giant is now gearing up to take on the likes of Apple Music and Spotify. Sources speaking to Music Ally say that Facebook has been in talks with music labels in a bid to launch its own music streaming service. But we might not see the service launch anytime soon as, according to the report, Facebook wants to get the monetization aspect of its new video platform (which will give advertisers 55% of ad revenue) perfected before delving into a viable audio streaming business. This could end up having Facebook entering the music streaming game pretty late, considering how many services are already available. In the meantime, you might be seeing music videos popping up on Facebook in the next few months, as according to the sources, the social media giant is in “advanced talks” with music labels to get their music videos on Facebook.
