Yahoo has rolled out a new release for their iOS social TV application IntoNow, adding a number of new features together with improved social networking. One of the new features added by Yahoo in IntoNow 3.0 is Music Sync, which is able to identify music within TV shows.
Enabling you to check background music, jingles or even live music which is then provides a link to directly download the track from iTunes or listen to it via YouTube. Adam Cahan, founder of IntoNow and VP of Product at Yahoo explains:
“iOS devices are pervasive in our living rooms, and second screen behavior is now commonplace. IntoNow wanted to up the ante and give people a whole new experience. We’re the first to offer some major technological innovations – like the ability to capture and share moments that happened seconds ago on TV or automatically identify songs playing in the background – all of which gives people watching TV with IntoNow 3.0 a unique, interactive experience.”
The latest Yahoo IntoNow 3.0 application is now available to download from the iTunes App Store for free and is supported on Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. Unfortunately Android users will have to wait a little longer for the new features to filter through to their application.
