The pandemic has separated us all. While there are many pressing issues directly related to addressing the pandemic, we lost some of the smaller moments as well. As we were trying to listen to music as a group, we found very few options. The alternatives felt convoluted or complicated. So we decided to make a simple web app to fill that need without having to install any extra software or create any special accounts.
What it does
DJ Room allows people to synchronously listen to Spotify music with minimal setup. Listeners can create a room, or join another person's room. The person who creates the room becomes the DJ, and all the other people in the room can listen to and request music from the DJ. The web application is simple to use, requiring only a valid Spotify account to work.
How we built it
