One of the first apps to go live on Spotify’s new apps platform was Soundrop, which helps people listen to songs in real-time with friends, complete with text chat. Like an avatar-less Turntable.fm, a bit. CEO Inge Andre Sandvik has been talking to Evolver.fm about the app. “Social music is currently about sharing history. We think it’s much more powerful to share what’s happening now, and more importantly invite people to decide what is going to happen next,” he says. “People want to use Soundrop two ways. It can be a social radio for listening and voting on tracks with strangers [or] a social jukebox to meet, chat and enjoy music with friends.” The startup is currently working on a standalone mobile version of its app too.
