Ping now lets users share playlists

15 Dec 2010

Ping, Apple’s music social network on iTunes, has introduced the ability to share iTunes playlists on profiles and lets users collaborate on them with friends.

According to Mac World, no software update is required to avail of this feature. After clicking on the arrow icon on a selected playlist, users can click “Publish Playlist” in order to share it with friends on Ping.

Users can give a title to their playlist and add a description to it, too. Playlists can carry up to 100 songs.

iTunes has to verify if all the songs on the playlist are available on the iTunes Store, meaning if it’s not for sale, then it doesn’t go on the playlist. Though users can add songs they haven’t bought from iTunes to their playlist.

Apple seems to be going quite slowly with updates to its iTunes music-based social network. It recently introduced Twitter integration to search for friends on Twitter with Ping accounts.
