Fans of the social DJ service turntable.fm will no doubt be disappointed to discover the news that the project is being discontinued in its current form and replaced with a fresh offering. Turntable.fm allowed friends to chat and listen to music together, taking turns to select the next track.
Turntable.fm had a loyal following, but was by no means universally popular. Its Android app currently has a rating of only 3.3 out of 5, on Google Play.
Although the Turntable name remains, the new service is a very different proposition. Built around live music, Turntable Live allows artists to generate revenue by selling tickets to performances, which are then available for fans to stream live.
A significant change for the new product is that Turntable Live is currently only web-based. There are no mobile apps available for any platforms, although expect that to change should the service prove successful.
