The Social Radio combines your social network updates with the music you love.

While you’re jamming to your favorite song, you’re curious about what’s trending on your social networks- but you don’t want the hassle of shifting between a music and a social app. The Social Radio is here to help solve your problem. The application uses text-to-speech technology to let you listen to tweets and Facebook status updates while you listen to the music you love. You can play music from your own musical library or use a third party service like Spotify, Pandora and etc.

Beyond creating a new ‘social listening’ experience, the app could cut help in situations like preventing drivers from tweeting- because Social Radio lets drivers listen to music and stream real-time updates, they wouldn’t be distracted from looking at their mobile devices. Or, people on the go who want to participate in Twitter chats could easily follow along by ‘tuning into’ specific lists or hashtags. The Latin American startup recently won the Buenos Aires semi-final of The Next Web’s competition, Startup World. The Social Radio application is available on both Android and iOS devices and the web app will be available soon.
