Bob your head

The listening rooms are the heart of the Turntable.fm service. "Like" a song, and your avatar's head will start bobbing along with others. You can also chat with other listeners, jump into an open DJ slot, or simply listen and vote on tracks as they're played.

A variety of listening options

From the main dashboard, it's easy enough to browse all rooms, those with open DJ slots , and those you've favorited in the past. There's also a search tool, which is great if you're looking for a specific genre of listening room.

Create your set

Thanks to Turntable.fm's deal with MediaNet, you get access to a huge database of music, which you can use in your DJ playlist. Unfortunately, editing your playlist from the app is a bit of a headache.

Music listening, gamified

The more you DJ for others, the more fans and DJ points you can earn. With enough points, you can even unlock new and interesting avatars that you can flaunt throughout Turntable.fm's many listening rooms.

What kind of room is this?

Unfortunately, you have to join a room before you can read its full description. This makes it difficult to quickly browse through the endless list of listening rooms available.
