Half of the people in the world use Facebook Messenger as their primary chatting solution. The other half use WhatsApp to communicate.

If you are like me and are moving away from Facebook – because of the gossip and nonsense that floats around the white and blue social network – you might want to try MSTY.

MSTY lets you send text messages to people in your contacts app; it has a clear differentiator that could get people choosing it instead of Facebook Messenger. Music.

Right now, Apple Music caught the world’s attention thanks to its curation features and low-priced family subscription (six people for $15). MSTY wants to join the hype letting you share songs with your friends that can be later played on Apple Music.

As you may have guessed, the tracks that you share on MSTY are snip-bits and not full length; otherwise you would need a premium subscription to use the app.

MSTY asks you to provide a phone number to start sharing songs. After you confirm your number with a code that arrives via text message, you’re set to start rocking your friends’ ears.

MSTY, a messenger app to send songs

“Pick a song, customize the background and write a message” reads the app’s sharing screen.

Select a song from a broad range of moods (flirt, weekend, banter to name a few) or a track from MSTY’s Hot 30. Now choose a background photo from your library or a set of templates, and write a message.

Tap on a contact and send them the musical text. The receiver and yourself can later listen to the track on Apple Music.

MSTY is available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch with iOS 7.0 or later, as well as smartphones and tablets with Android 4.1 or above on the following link.
