Yes, is still A Thing. A bigger thing, actually: the social music service has dropped its 200-user limit for its rooms, meaning (in theory) an unlimited number of fans can crowd into a room where a particular DJ is virtually spinning the virtual wheels of virtual steel.

The change is designed to fuel more celebrity appearances in “We had big names come to us, and with the 200 person cap, some fans were disappointed,” CEO Billy Chasen tells TechCrunch. Popular rooms get bigger stages and more flashing lights, too. Meanwhile, Chasen says hopes to expand internationally again in early 2013.
