Our mission here at Play.fm is to help people discover new music from all around the globe and connect them with the DJs and radio presenters they love.
With the launch of our brand new dashboard and user profiles we’ve made it easier than ever to keep track of new mixes and radioshows of your favorite artists, labels and clubs. Additionally, you can now follow your friends to see what they have uploaded or been listening to.
We have re-designed some existing features and implemented a bunch of new ones. Here’s an overview of the most important changes:
Dashboard: New Navigation
We completely revamped the existing navigation to give you quicker access to the most important Play.fm features, such as the Upload section which gives you an instant overview of the sets you uploaded. In the Pages menu you can now find all the artists, labels, clubs, festivals and radioshows you follow and discover new ones.
News Feed & Notifications: Stay on top of things
Did your favorite DJ upload a new set?
Are the recordings from last weekend’s festival online yet?
What are your friends listening to?
The news feed will never let you miss a piece of news again. In order to keep a clear picture you can easily filter your news messages.
If you’re too busy to check your newsfeed regularly, just set up your email notifications: We’ll let you know when something interesting happened.
User Profiles: Connect with your friends
We gave your user profile a fresh coat of paint: A large and crispy clear profile picture, short bio and a concise overview of your favorites, listens and uploads. There’s even more: In addition to artists, labels and similar pages you can now also follow your friends. Use the new friend finder in your dashboard to see who already uses Play.fm and get connected.
Note the difference between “Pages” and “User profiles”: While “Pages” are for artists, clubs and other brands to promote themselves, “user profiles” are private users´profiles.
Connections: Share what you’re doing
We know you love sharing, so we’ve made it even easier to let your friends know what you are listening to and what you’ve uploaded. You can now link Play.fm with your Facebook and Twitter account and automatically share what you have uploaded or what you are listening to. Your Play.fm activity will be smoothly integrated into your Facebook Timeline in form of a nice little box featuring exactly the kind of information you want to share.
(We are currently waiting for a final approval from Facebook, the Timeline Integration should be up and running on Friday at the latest.)
Favorites: Create playlists easier than ever
Managing your favorite sets and radioshows is now even easier than before. We’ve created a neat little popup that lets you collect, sort and re-arrange the mixes you like the most with just a simple click on the Favorites-Button.
