Here’s a new app that’s likely to liven up your next party. Jamjitsu brings Nexus Q-type functionality to your Android TV, but offers more features. With Jamjitsu, you create a master playlist that all your friends can now connect to as well. Anyone can add music from Spotify, Deezer, Soundcloud and YouTube to the playlist. Your friends can even add photos and other (non music) videos from YouTube as well.
Now I know that at least half your guests will be sporting an iPhone, and the good news is that they can share in on the fun too since the app is also available in iTunes. The app works by everyone joining “The Party”, which then sends the info to your Android TV device. That is why iPhone users can join in since they aren’t communicating directly with your Android TV device, just the online playlist. Your guests (Android or iOS) don’t even need to be on your Wi-Fi.
