Streaming has changed the way people listen to music, giving anyone with an internet connection easy access to huge song libraries through services like YouTube and Spotify. Unfortunately, using these services means managing music in multiple tabs, across multiple sites, resulting in a fragmented listening experience. With Cohearence, users now have one location from which they can access and playback all of the music they stream. Cohearence remembers what users listen to on YouTube, Spotify, Soundcloud, and Bandcamp, and then lets them play back any song they've previously listened to from a source-agnostic player built into a Chrome Extension. Users can also playback or manage their playlists and music library from the Cohearence web application, which is totally synchronized with the extension.

Users can post messages for one another and play competitive mini-games based on the in-game fitness levels of their pets.
