Facebook Enters Music Streaming through mysterious new company! Todays Episode of the Oddly Observant Podcast welcomes back Cameron Azeez, CEO of Tuner Inc and the Brassroots Music app. On Product Hunt (A social media for products, ideas, and projects), we found a very lowkey entry into the Music streaming world by Facebook.

New technologies such as Bluetooth 2.0, AirPods, and even 5G will make the bandwidth between people and their devices higher than ever previously imagined. Additionally, such hardware and software advancements make the environment ripe for innovation in the music streaming sector.
