An interesting feature, initially proposed for the Three Degrees add-on for Messenger back in the day, has finally made a comeback in Windows Live Messenger.

"Music Mix" basically allows you to create a shared playlist with a friend that both of you can add songs to. The songs are streamed from one person to the other, and the playlist stays in sync, so both of you are listening to the same music at the same time.

The feature is also supposed to appear in the current release version of MSN Messenger 7.5 "very soon." If, however, you're still looking for a Windows Live Messenger beta invite, take a look at this post.

I'll have to try this out soon. Wonder what the quality of the streaming media is like.
