Now Facebook is able to listen and recognize music and TV shows

A new feature that enables users to post what they are watching or listening to is the latest in Facebook’s efforts to keep users talking.

The feature must be activated and once the recognition is done, the app gives you the option to be able to update it, going straight to the news feed.

The intention is that the next time you are writing a status update, you will be at liberty to turn on the feature, giving more functionality to your phones microphone. Then again you can also turn off the feature at any time by simply clicking the audio icon in the top right of the screen.

This is new feature is set to strengthen Facebook’s position in the race to have the most real time discussions on television shows sports among other forms of entertainment.  The feature is set to be available in the Android and iOS versions of the social site’s app in the coming weeks.
