We're really - and we mean REALLY - excited to announce something that will be the beginning of a "before and after" moment in Streema's history: from now on, you will be able to see the name of the song that is currently playing. This has been heavily requested by our community - and to be honest, to be able to finally show it to all of you it is unbelievably awesome!
So, how does this work? It's pretty simple to explain: many radios stations offer this information in all sorts of different ways, sometimes via the stream, sometimes via their website. What we do is figure out how to grab that information (which is many times not easily available) and then we'll display it both on Streema.com's player (check the screen shot above) and on our Facebook application's popup player. Here's a quick sample of radio stations for which we will show the song information:
- Power Hitz, Hits from the U.S.
- NME Radio has THE best Alternative Rock in the U.K.
- Slow.fm plays Slow and Ambient music
- Roots Rock Reggae with classic reggae in Jamaica
- Deepinside - DJ Sessions if you want go Electronic ;)
By the way, do bear in mind that we currently have this feature only for a reduced number of stations, but believe us that we're working hard to eventually have this for as many stations as is humanly possible. : ) In the meantime, you might want to see our directory ordered by availability of song information!
Is that all? No Sir! On our Facebook application, you'll be able to update your Facebook status with the song information. Also, keep an eye out because we might have something similar on our website Streema.com in the not-so-distant future.
Where else are we going with this? We're not sure yet, but we'd love to hear directly from you about this. We hope you enjoy it as much as we are!
And more than ever... stay tuned!
The Streema Team
