IntoNow is an early signal in how audio recognition is poised to drive the development of social TV, with implications for both content and hardware producers.

The app brings in elements from the developing world of social TV, including features like usage-powered recommendation engines, conversations from everyone currently watching any given show, and notifications from friends about shows you should be watching.
