Yahoo adds ‘Listening Space’ to Aviate

Yahoo has added its first major new feature to the Aviate launcher since its acquisition in early January. Available immediately in the latest version of the app is a tool known as Listening Space. What does it do? Well, it’s smart stuff, really, and centers around listening to music.

Plug your headphones into your Android phone and Aviate instantly opens your Listening Space…Once a song starts playing, Aviate detects the song you’re listening to and surfaces bios and recent tweets from the artist, upcoming shows nearby, and the ability to listen to top tracks in Spotify.

Want to get involved with the private beta? Cool, all you have to do is download the app and use the code “MUSIC.” Aviate works on devices 2.3 and up but requires 4.0 in order to utilize Listening Space. Samsung Galaxy users are advised to update to Android 4.3+ for the best experience.
