Groupees - Share and discover music that you like.

Looking for: Developer, Engineer, Marketer, Product manager, Other
Groupees will allow users to add their favourite songs from their music library and make collaborative playlists with their friends by adding them to a group chat.

How it works
The user creates a special chat group for family, friends, colleagues or any other acquaintances.  After adding his friends they all add up to 10 songs to the group.
Now all group members can listen to the songs that have been added as a collaborative playlist, "favourite" songs or "like" them, even "follow" the one who added the song to listen to their personal playlist. After 24 hours all songs will disappear and the group members can add new songs again.   
We will also allow users to discover new songs that they would enjoy. After adding up to 10 songs from their music library to the "music discovery" feature, they will be joined to a group of up to 15 random people who each added up to 10 songs. Users can choose if they would like to hear music from the same genre or style, or let Groupees choose for them. By looking in their music library Groupees will have the possibility to combine people with songs that they all will like. Users can now discover new songs, follow or talk to the people in the group. The playlist will be available for 24 hours after that it will dissolve and the musical adventure will start over. 

Groupees automatically makes a playlist of anything the user will "favorite". He can play any of those favorites anytime he likes. There is also a "history" page, where he can hear anything that has played previously, just in case he didn't get a chance to favorite a song, but would still like to hear it again.
