Tizzme is another shot at a social music app

About five years ago, Greg Kates was watching the Montreal Canadiens and noticed that PK Subban was listening to music before the game. “I wonder what kind of tunes he uses to get psyched up a game?”

What if fans could be so tuned in to Subban’s listening that not only could they listen along in real time, they’d also know when he skipped a song. That led to the first iteration of Tizzme in 2016.

The “discover and share” app has been re-launched for 2020. Anyone with a Spotify Premium account can use it on both iOS and Android.

  • The app helps find new music by searching based on genre, location, popularity, or suggested profiles based on a musical taste questionnaire.
  • There are also “genre robots” that offer playlists are based on genre and constantly playing new songs that match the genre.
  • Should you wish to broadcast what you’re listening to on social media, you can. Those who tune in can provide live feedback on each song, with a thumbs up or down
  • It’s free. Go here to learn more and download.
