SoundShare was already a great social music app, but it just got better with the release of 3.0 and new features like Party Mode.
SoundShare allows you to connect your music subscription service like Apple Music, Spotify, and Deezer to the app and build collaborative playlists with your friends. If you don’t subscribe to any of those services, you can still use YouTube, so everyone can join in.
The great thing about SoundShare is that it doesn’t matter what service your friends belong to, the app will allow all of them in a single playlist.
With the new Party Mode, you simply connect your iPhone to a Bluetooth speaker or Apple TV and then invite your friends to join the party inside the app. Everyone that you invited can add songs to the party, regardless of the service they are using.
SoundShare 3.0 also features integration with Apple’s MusicKit. This means that when you authorize SoundShare to access Apple Music, you will see your Favorite Mix, Chill Mix, New Music Mix, Daily Playlists, Daily Albums, Spotlight Playlists, and New Releases in the SoundShare app. Basically, you’ll see your Apple Music “For You” section.
I’ve been using SoundShare for quite a while and really like the app a lot. I especially like the seamless integration with all of the other services and how easy it is to collaborate with friends who use different music services, to build a single playlist.
SoundShare is free and can be downloaded from the App Store.
